Ronstan Batten Systems


RONSTAN Ballslide T Batten Systems - Overview

Ronstan Ballslide T Batten System
Quick, Easy and Reliable - The patented Ballslide T Ronstan system uses the existing luff groove of the mast, so that no track needs to be installed. The Series 6 & 8 Ballslide T cars have captive ball bearings for free-running performance, and can easily be loaded and unloaded from the mast when fitting or removing the mainsail.

  • BallslideT Ronstan Batten cars are compatible with most popular mast profiles for boats up to 18m (60 ft).
  • Recirculating, captive ball bearings make raising and lowering the sail quick and easy.
  • No track installation required - BallslideT batten cars run in the existing luff groove.
  • The range includes all elements for a complete system, including headboard plates and batten receptacles.

  • Ronstan Captive Ball Batten Car System
    Strength & Simplicity - The all-new Captive Ball Ronstan Batten car system combining the performance of ball bearing cars and the convenience of easy removal of mainsail and cars from the mast.

  • The Series 22 & 30 Batten Cars run on twin races of captive Torlon® ball bearings and alloy end caps for precise, low-friction performance. Captive slide rods provide extra strength for high static loads.
  • The Captive Ball Ronstan Batten system provides optimum performance for raising, lowering and reefing the mainsail while head to wind or luffing. (For extreme sailing, reefing while sailing off the wind, etc. we recommend the full ball bearing car and track systems).
