RONSTAN Orbit Blocks - Roller Ball Size 100 - Overview
Ronstan Roller Ball Orbit Fiddle blocks™ are a no-compromise product range developed to meet the demands and expectation of the very dedicated and increasingly professional racing sailor. Side cheeks incorporating head structure and hub are precision machined as a single part from solid alloy, leaving material only where it contributes to the load carrying capacity of the block and eliminating the need for additional fasteners. The Orbit sheave has captive Acetal ball bearings for side thrust loads, eliminating the need for side retainer plates. This reduces weight and allows for a wider bearing surface that can accommodate longer Torlon® needles – achieving a substantially higher strength-to-weight ratio. Spreacher blocks can accommodate a second spinnaker sheet for sail changed or for an outboart genoa sheet for racing.
