Extreme Load ILCA / Laser Vang Top Block
An ILCA specific vang block featuring a 30mm Extreme High Load Block (XHL), comes with heavy duty kicker key.
Allen developed the Extreme High Load (XHL) range in conjunction with the world's top International Moth Sailors, to create a solution for the extreme loads found in Moth vang's which frequently crushed the bearing surfaces of lesser blocks. Recognizing the benefits of the XHL range, top ILCA sailors turned to Allen to solve the problem of increasing efficiency and working load in the vang system top block resulting in the 2031XHL.
With CNC machined aluminum cheeks and precision turned stainless steel v-shaped sheave the XHL 30mm has a huge 1,000kg break force coupled with the strongest vang key on the market. The design of the block ensures ultra low friction under extreme load, helping many sailors get the extra vang purchase required for heavy conditions, for some, the free running nature has allowed the removal of a purchase from the vang system for faster application.
Whilst the block can take upto 8mm diameter rope it is typically used with 3mm - 5mm Dyneema® found here
When using these blocks the rope must be cross spliced to ensure the load is not forcing the cheeks apart.
