Trident Race Topper Downhaul
Topper downhaul or cunningham with a 6 to 1 mechanical advantage (You pull 6cms and the system moves 1cm and it's 6 times easier to pull)
Part of the Trident Topper Race System. We have introduced these systems as a lower cost option to the Harken and Ronstan versions, using the same setup, but with lower cost alternative blocks.
This system produces a 6:1 cascading downhaul, using a Clam Cleat. To pull the downhaul on you pull the rope from a block at the bottom which automatically cleats the rope, making the system easy to use.
The downhaul is an extremely important tool to control the sail and balance of the rig for maximum speed
Supplied pre-assembled ready to clip onto your mast and sail, it may need the rope length shortening as we make these so they also fit the old style sail with an eye in the sail instead of a webbing loop. Colours can vary, you can contact us for specific preferences.
Lubricating your mast with dry lube will help the sail move as this control is used
