Harken track is grouped into seven categories: Micro, Small boat, Mid Range, Big Boat, Mini Maxi, Maxi and CRX. Each size of Harken genoa cars and travelers are engineered to handle specific loads and applications and Harken track is made to match the cars. Because of this, Harken cars must be used with the correct purpose made Harken track.

Determining the correct Harken track size for your boat
Traveler track size depends on a few different factors: your mainsail area, the location of the mainsheet on the boom (whether it's endHarken 43mm Mini-Maxi CRX Low-Beam Roller Track sheeting or mid-boom sheeting) and whether your boat is a monohull or a multihull. See the selection guide tab to determine which Harken track to use for your sailboat.

Harken 13mm Micro Track 
Harken Micro track comes in low and high-beam configurations. The wide track base adds stability and protects cored decks. A channel on the track bottom makes it easy to install on unfair decks and eliminates rocking on curved surfaces like booms or masts. Fastener holes fit both metric and imperial screws.

Harken 22mm Small Boat Track
Harken Small Boat Track comes in low or high-beam configurations. Use low-beam track when it's supported at each fastener hole. Use high-beam track when it must span a cockpit or other unsupported area. Choose between variable hole spacing and drilled track.

Harken 27mm Midrange Track
Harken Midrange 27 mm Metric Low-Beam Pinstop Holes Track is predrilled with holes for mounting fasteners and one pinstop hole between each fastener. The mounting hole space is at 3 15/16" (100 mm) increments while the track has a height of 9/16" (14 mm).

Harken Midrange 27 mm High-Beam Variable Hole Spacing Track CB (Captive Ball) is used to span cockpits or other unsupported areas. Track features internal slide bolts, allowing new track to be installed without drilling additional holes. The track has a height of 1 5/8" (42 mm).

Harken Midrange 27 mm Retrofit 4" Hole Spacing Track is predrilled with holes for mounting fasteners and one pinstop hole between each fastener. The mounting hole space is at 4" (102 mm) increments while the track has a height of 9/16" (14 mm).

Harken Genoa and Traveler Track for large offshore boats
Harken makes 32,42 and 64mm captive ball cars and track for boats with sail areas ranging from 300 square feet up to the largest maxi yachts with sail areas of 1400 square feet.

Harken CRX Track is an innovative product developed by the Harken custom division. The Harken 32 mm CRX Roller Traveler carries almost double the load at half the weight of similarly sized traveler cars.It is available in two lengths - 2m and 3m. The height of the track is 7/8" (22 mm). It is a low-beam roller style track. The hole spacing is set at 2 15/16" (75 mm) increments. Track is extruded from high-grade 6061-T6 aluminum and hardcoat-anodized for a hard, long-lasting surface. Torlon® rollers provide increased bearing contact over balls to handle higher loads. Captive bearings make cars easy to load and maintain.
