Large Continuous Line Furlers
Ronstan continuous line furlers for racing or cruising now come in two new larger sizes. Both offer standard furling for straight-luff sails such as Code 0, Screecher or Staysail, or can be combined with a top-down adapter for use with soft-luff sails such as coded asymmetrics, Reacher, Runner or Gennaker sails. Series 200 and 280 Furlers are easily adapted from standard to top-down, making them versatile and cost effective.
- Standard and Top-down options
- Advanced Drum Technology
- Maintenance free main bearing system
- Quick continuous line installation and removal system requires no tools
Series 60 All Purpose Block
Ronstan’s All Purpose (AP) blocks are a great all around solution. The self-lubricating Acetal polymer sheaves running on polished Stainless Steel races perform equally well with dynamic loads and high static loads. For durability and a long service life, these blocks are the right choice for sheets, halyards and control line applications for cruising and racing.
Sheave design features side ribs to minimise weight and enhance strength. Self-lubricating Acetal polymer minimises friction and ensures dependable load bearing reliability.
- Exceptionally high working loads
- Low maintenance, long service life
- Self-lubricating Acetal polymer sheave ensures low friction and extreme durability
- Mainsheet and halyard applications, vang and spinnaker control lines on boats to 10m (33ft)
- Suitable for boats up to 12m (40ft)

Low Friction Rings
- Compact & lightweight
- Low friction
- Deep, secure lashing groove
- Simple & reliable design
- Low maintenance
A result of trickle-down from Grand Prix yacht racing Ronstan's range of Low Friction Rings provide an outstanding strength to weight solution where the absolute minimum friction of a ball bearing block is not required. That being said, the performance difference between well and poorly executed versions of these simple products is marked. The basic appearance of the Ronstan Low Friction Ring range belies an exacting development process that investigated, tested and delivered optimised performance in strength, weight, friction, line wear and security.
Ronstan Low Friction Rings are machined from high grade aluminium with a durable low friction anodised coating and are available in three sizes to suit lines up to 14mm (9/16").
Common applications for Ronstan Low Friction Rings on racing and cruising yachts:

Continuous Line Furlers – Gen 2Refined Design, Performance & Reliability
Ronstan’s Continuous Line Furlers have been developed over recent years for use by some of the world’s top racing syndicates. Encouraged by their feedback, design enhancements have been incorporated, resulting in our second generation (Gen 2) range of furlers that now puts great performance and reliability within the reach of cruising and racing sailors alike.Dedicated Top-Down models for soft luff sails
Top-down furling provides a new level of simplicity, safety and speed for handling of soft luff sails such as asymmetric spinnakers and gennakers. Cruisers can now store, deploy and retrieve these sails as simply as they would a furling headsail from the safety and convenience of the cockpit. Racers too can benefit from the characteristics of top-down to allow superfast retrieval of code zeros by pre-winding the torsion rope and firing the sheet when ready. Ronstan Gen 2 furlers are now available in dedicated top-down models with practical accessories such as soft loop shackles for tack attachment and top swivel lashing pins to provide the perfect solution.Attachment options
Attachment options include high resistance shackles, snap shackles, fairleads and quick release pins. Torsion rope thimbles have been updated specifically to suit the latest generation of large diameter torsion ropes.
The furler drum can be adjusted to suit either 0° or 90° attachment, as required to match the take-off alignment and deck layout.
Available in four colour options - blue, green, grey and red with several attachment options, including webbing, pigtail, lashing and dyneema links, it will be the obvious choice for those kitesurfers, paragliders, control line deflections and purchase systems that require a lightweight high load capacity block./p>
The applications are unlimited, including kitesurfing, paragliders, sports kites, power kites, stunt kites, depower kites, traction kites, for deflection or purchase system on control linesFeatures
