Ball Bearing Adjustable Genoa Lead Cars

Recirculating Torlon ball bearings allow genoa lead cars to adjust easily under full sheet loads.

Sheaves feature ball/roller bearings with sideload balls for easy trimming and fore/aft adjustment under load. Wide sheaves accomodate two sheets during sail changes. Sheave carriers pivot to accomodate changing lead angles.

Though Captive Ball track is specified here, none of these cars have Captive Balls, and come with a ball loader.

Pinstop Jib Leads

Spring loaded pinstop cars offer two lead solutions for small keel boats from 22 ft to 27 ft (6 to 8 m).

The H2750 is for racers like the J/80 or Melges 24. Attach lightweight 57mm or 75mm Carbo blocks. Combine with H370 Stand-Up Boot for use with the 57mm Ti-Lite.

The H393_ Genoa Lead uses an axle bearing sheave. The sheave carrier pivots to accept unfair leads. Removable stop limits inboard pivoting so lead can mount near a cabin side.

Harken Curved Track

Harken Curved Track

Track is often bent to follow the cabin house curve or boom radius. Sometimes track is bent vertically, ends up, to relieve tension on the sail's leech as the traveler car moves off the boat's centerline.

To perform smoothly and carry the correct load, the traveler car's length must suit track radius. Check the description of the traveler cars for their minimum radius requirements. Remember that you can couple two cars for higher loads on tighter radii.

Minor bends can often be made when the track is installed. If the track requires more bend, we can provide track with horizontal, vertical or compound curves to your specifications for a modest charge. If the bend is continuous, add 2 to 4 inches (50 to 100 cm) to each end because track cannot be bent to its ends. Standard Harken Mini-Maxi and Maxi traveler cars cannot ride on vertical bends with a radius under 50' (15.25m).

Please call to order curved track. We cannot accept curved track orders on our website. Please have ready the following information when you call:

  • Boat Model:
  • Track Part Number:
  • Bend Part Number: (We'll help you with this)
  • Chord Length:
  • Chord Depth, Horizontal or Radius, Horizontal:
