Harken’s Reflex™ furling system has proven reliable, tight, top-to-bottom kite furls are more than a dream. Now meet Unit 3. All Reflex… all pumped up for the halyard loads of boats 14 –18 m (46 – 60′).
The promise of “top down” furlers is simple, yet has been notoriously difficult to follow through on. For a free-flying sail to furl evenly and completely, the head swivel at the top of the rig needs to start turning as soon as the crew begins pulling the furling line on the deck below. The Reflex systems, powered by Harken’s breakthrough torsion cable does just that – transferring torque at lightning speed. The result is tight, reliable, top-to-bottom furls.
