Low Cost & Flexible Block Alternative
Low Friction Rings have truly revolutionised sail & boat handling systems providing ultra low weight, low cost and highly customisable systems with bullet proof reliability (no moving parts).
Super simple, ultra-reliable, and lightweight alternative to traditional blocks in semi-static applications, used to deflect sheets, control lines and create lashings. Universally popular for lazy jack systems.
Low Friction Rings / Thimbles have been gaining popularity due to their simplicity, cost and weight advantage over traditional roller blocks. They are now found on almost all modern production boats in some capacity. Easily spliced into control systems using PS12 for lazy jacks or Dyneema for control lines and most other applications.
