REFLEX™ for Cable-Free Code Zero SailsDec 12, 2019
Over three years, Harken REFLEX has proven its value to recreational racers and shorthanded cruisers by furling asymmetrical kites completely and reliably. REFLEX succeeds in part because of the notoriously free-rolling stacked, open-race Delrin®bearings designed into the drive unit.
Then came the cable-free load sharing sail revolution. The halyard tension now applied to these code zeros is only about half that previously thought necessary. REFLEX has now proven to be a potent weapon for the strategic application of these new sails. Crews report the same flawless furling now expected of REFLEX using head and tack components that are designed to be sewn or webbed directly to the sails.
