Hard to see, but true: The POWER.XT 2.0 has been completely redesigned. besides the basic idea it has almost nothing in common with its predecessor. From the brand new, extremely solid ratchet mechanism, the simplified release function and the high-strength Lyros® Dyneema rope up to the possibility to upgrade the POWER.XT 2.0 with a damper function – the POWER.XT 2.0 can do so much more and everything better.
Since its introduction 10 years ago the POWER.XT is the unmatched standard, when it comes to extensions with trim aids. Anyone who has used it once never wants to be without it. Thanks to the integrated lever it handles all downhaul forces and allows precise trim adjustments and fine tuning even on the water. Even kids can use it to cope the extreme downhaul tension of modern slalom sails. Each profile is adjusted with millimeter precision in seconds. The 15 cm long lever and the power ratio of 1:60 enable absolutely power-saving trimming
1. ADVANTAGES WHEN SETTING UP THE SAIL:
→ Faster rigging: attach rope-loop – pull on standard-cleat – ratchet, ready!
→ Significantly less power required (power ratio approx. 1/60)
→ No need for trimming tools (e.g. “easy-rig“ or harness hook)
2. ADVANTAGES ON THE WATER:
→ Adjustments can be made even on the water, increasing as well as releasing (e.g. when the wind speed changes)
→ Increased safety
→ Sail performance and wind range are exploited to the full
2 THREAD SYSTEM POWER.XT 2.0
NOW COMPATIBLE WITH ALL SAIL BRANDS! The POWER.XT 2.0 features a stainless-steel open pulley enabling loop-loop-go rigging – the fastest and most comfortable way to rig your sail! The POWER.XT 2.0 is now the first choice even for sails with twisted tack-rollers (e.g. Loft, Naish, Severne). Yet their rope distribution has been taken into account during construction. This tack-roller orientation does not permit a loop-loop-go rigging though, means the rope needs to be threaded.
