C-T Airbattens
Inflatable jib / headsail battens
   
C-T Airbatten - inflatable headsail batten
   

The C-T AirBatten was designed to meet the need for an unbreakable batten in over-lapping headsails. The C-T Airbatten is an air pressurised batten that is unbreakable, fatigue resistant and able to be furled (when deflated).

Successfully race tested on superyachts and in the 2007 America's Cup the C-T AirBatten has potential to be used on all type of yachts. Development of an airline system allows C-T AirBattens to be inflated and deflated while sailing (racing). This makes C-T AirBattens suitable for use with furling headsails.
