Spinnaker Pole Cars
Harken® spinnaker pole cars feature recirculating ball bearings to permit adjustment under load. They roll freely on low-beam traveler track to allow crew to adjust for optimal sail shape. Machined aluminum hardcoat-anodized races permit Torlon® bearings to transition smoothly from active to return race for smooth trimming or easing.
Small Boat and Midrange cars feature captive ball bearings, making them easy to load onto the track and to maintain. Stainless steel wire guides keep ball bearings captive when the cars are off the track.
Strong, lightweight cars are constructed from one-piece solid aluminum that is hardcoat-anodized, PTFE-coated for strength and durability.
Ring fittings are 17-4 PH stainless steel and accept piston pole ends for end-to-end jibing. Midrange and Big Boat cars accept two popular toggle studs and Harken ball-end fittings. Cars are also available from Harken’s Custom Division.
