These Midrange Captive Bearing Traveler Cars have a stand-up toggle that holds the mainsheet block upright off the deck. The toggle attaches low inside the car, so mainsheet loads as much as 40° off-angle don't impede the ball bearings from rolling freely. The high-strength Torlon® ball bearings run on machined, Hardkote-anodized, Teflon® impregnated races for smooth trimming and easing.
Proper choice of purchase allows easy adjustment of the car using a single line and no winch. High-strength Torlon® ball bearings run on machined, Hardkote-anodized, Teflon® impregnated races for smooth trimming and easing.
Cars are also available with a toggle with side ears for attaching traveler control blocks. Cars are also available with factory installed purchase configurations of 1:1 thru 4:1 for traveler adjustment. You can increase the purchase on an existing car (up to a max. of 4:1) using the 27 mm Purchase Upgrade Kit; see Related Products, below.
