Trident Topper Downhaul 6:1 Harken
Topper downhaul or cunningham with a 6 to 1 mechanical advantage
The New Team Trident impressive 6:1 downhaul system is not only very easy to get the tension required on the Cunningham but is extremely lightweight. This system uses small ball-bearing Harken blocks that offer high working loads; this is the obvious choice for the competitive racer.
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
