Crossbow™ Pivoting Self-Tacking Jib Traveler
The Crossbow™ is a self-tacking jib system designed for high-performance dinghies, skiffs, and catamarans under six meters (20 feet). The system features a curved track that hinges to align both car and track with the sheet loads for less friction, more load-bearing capacity, and for an ultra-lightweight design.
The two-piece car body is machined of 6061-T6 aluminum and Hard Lube-anodized for strength and corrosion resistance. Curved races evenly distribute the loads on Torlon® ball bearings for low-friction rolling. A Delrin® cap keeps the balls captive when the car is removed from the track. The hardcoat-anodized track has three pivoting attachment points that distribute the load.
Track is offered in 20 or 50 mm heights. Use 20 mm track for the lightest weight setup or for spinnakers with a separate tack and halyard system. Use 50 mm track with a single-line spinnaker system. The track’s center strut has a hole for a fair, chafe-free halyard lead.
