Ronstan Series 30 Orbit Triple Block With Shackle Head
Ronstan 30mm series 30 triple Orbit ball bearing block with shackle head
Ronstan 30mm triple ball bearing block with shackle head. Within seconds you can change the stainless steel shackle to the incredibly light and flexible Dyneema link for ultimate performance. (Order RORF9003-07 Dyneema Link for Orbit Blocks)
Ball bearing Orbit blocks™ boast the highest strength-to-weight ratio available. This is achieved through all-composite reinforced polymer materials and multiple attachment options.
Their precision design provides the optimum number of ball bearings for minimum friction while weight reduction is achieved through the use of fibre-reinforced composites in the block head, cleat arms and beckets.
- Highest working load in its class
- Secure, versatile and secure attachment
- Low profile and compact
- Shackle head (standard) or swap for dyneema link by ordering RORF9003-07 Dyneema Link to suit S30 BB double and triple Orbit Blocks

- Sheave: High compression strength carbon black Acetal
- Ball Bearings: High compression strength Acetal
- Frame/Cheeks: Toughened, glass fibre reinforced Nylon
- Link: 316 Stainless steel loop
- Tension systems on dinghies to 5m (16ft)
- Vang and backstay applications on boats to 5m (16ft)
- Control line applications on dinghies and larger boats
Kilogram for kilogram of working load BB Orbit Blocks™ are the world’s lightest. To gain peak performance, we engineered out the heavy steel load straps, head post, shackle and cleating accessories. Through extensive research and development, we replaced virtually all metal components with high-tech polymers and fibre equivalents.
Weight and bulk are further reduced in the different block configurations.
Multi-sheave blocks have only single intermediate cheeks and an ultra-light and efficient head arrangement. Other brands just link together their single blocks with a heavy steel channel across the top of the block, with unnecessary extra cheeks adding extra weight and bulk not found in Ronstan Orbit blocks™.
Highest working load in its class
The proven Ronstan 2-stage bearing system (Series 30 and larger) features high compression grade Acetal ball bearings and a secondary full-contact bearing. This gives minimum friction across the full working load range.
The sheave and bearing system is supported by a fibre-reinforced load frame, computer modelled and optimised using advanced stress analysis methods.
The Dyneema® Link, is produced from high spec SK75 fibre, which is 10 times stronger and lighter than steel, and provides the final connection from the block to the load point. It is easily fitted and secured by a removable pin, this pin could also be used for a custom lashing or strop.

Important Note - Break Loads
Where break and safe working loads are stated, it is assumed that all sheaves are evenly loaded as in purchase tackle. Uneven loading, or loading of one sheave in a double or triple block, will severely effect strength quoted. If unsure, please seek further advice.
