Fairleads for endless furling lines
Premiumropes sells the Selden collection of blocks and fairleads to lead endless furling lines back to the cockpit. For example, check out the Double Fairlead system: you can easily connect this to a 25mm or 30mm stanchion. This double fairlead prevents the furling line from tangling up without friction.The Selden CX and GX furling systems work with an endless furling line running over a line driver drum. Want to know how to splice and endless furling line yourself? Check out our tutorial here.
Seldén cam cleats
Seldén makes its cam cleats of carbon fibre reinforced polyetherimide. This material has a high resistance to friction heat. We have two categories Selden cam cleats:
- Cam cleats 27 for rope capacity of 3-7mm
- Cam cleats 38 for rope capacity of 4-12mm
Seldén CX furler system for Code 0 sails
The Selden CX system is the furler for Code 0 sails. Code 0 sails are very popular now, from Volvo Ocean Race sailors to ordinary cruisers. A Code 0 sail has a straight luff that is set under tension and is made for furling. The luff carries the total load. This simplifies the handling of this large sail. An anti-torsion cable (also AT-cable) is integrated in the luff and the entire luff length is furled simultaneously. The design of a Code 0 sail is quite flat. A Code 0 is great to sail in apparent wind angles between 40° and 90°.
Seldén GX furler system for asymmetric spinnakers
The Selden GX furling system is for top-down furling of asymmetric spinnakers. Often people call them gennakers or ‘cruising chutes’. The luff is curved. An anti-torsion cable connects the drum and the halyard swivel. This ‘AT-cable’ transmits the rotation of the drum. This enables the furling to start at the top and work its way down until the entire sail is stowed away.
An asymmetric spinnaker performs best in apparent wind angles between 70° and 110°.
