The Carbo Racing Foil material is very low friction, making hoists, douses and sail changes faster. Its high strength provides dramatic improvement in resistance to line wear, especially when jibing asymmetrical spinnaker sheets. Impact resistance is increased - less damage from spinnaker poles, especially in cold weather. Heat has little effect on stiffness. The black color provides superior UV protection and is easy to see against a light sky, making the jib trimmer's job easier.
Because the Carbo foil uncoils and straightens, installation is simple. Snapping the foil onto the stay is easy and can be done with the mast up.
The prefeeder rollers are Hardkote-anodized and Teflon impregnated aluminum and spin freely on low-friction bushings.
