Product Features:

This Series 42 car uses the high load carrying Quadrace bearing system which is particularly efficient at carrying loads at an offset angle due to the extra support/bearing area provided by the extra ball bearing race. The car body is fitted with a pivoting stainless steel 316 stirrup with attachment slots for mainsheet and control line Orbit lashing blocks. The pivoting stirrup serves two functions: transfering the mainsheet load evenly into the car body and directs loads as close to the centre of the car bearing system as possible, thus avoiding torque loads. Two blocks can be lashed to the side slots/holes in the stirrup to provide a 2:1 purchase athwartships system. Alternatively the car could be used in a German mainsheet system with a single lashing block being attached to the central hole in the stirrup. Rubber buffers are fitted over the stirrup legs to prevent damage to the stirrup/car body. As much material as possible has been machined away from the car body as possible to reduce weight, thus exposing the Quadrace bearing system.
