 Round luff-end conversions
Standard C-T Sailbattens have a rectangular luff end. A luff-end conversion can be moulded during manufacturing to form an integral round end that can be used with conventional batten receptacles. Round luff ends (including diameter required) must be specified prior to manufacture.

Features
  • Made from solid carbon fibre
  • Can be manufactured to any diameter and depth
  • Kevlar-coated for wear resistance
  • Typical round end sizes:
    • Midi battens: 16mm
    • Standard / Maxi battens: 19mm - 25mm
    • Superyacht battens: 22mm - 30m

 Dry spectra over-braiding
Dry spectra sock can be applied to the outside of a finished batten. The spectra sock is attached with double-sided tape and fixed at each end using tough heat-shrink rubber.

Benefits
  • Helps protect sail in event of batten failure
  • Provides chafe-resistance
  • Easier batten removal should a batten break (especially in offshore conditions)
