Harken Carbo Racing Foil


The engineering resins in these strong, lightweight head foils offer significant advancements over the weaker PVC materials used by other manufacturers. The low-friction twin headsail grooves are ultra-smooth, allowing hoists, douses, and headsail changes to be easily and efficiently executed. Impact resistance is unmatched, with far less foil damage from loaded spinnaker poles, especially in cold weather. Heat has little effect on stiffness. 

Foils are UV protected and easy for the trimmer to see. For mast-up installation, simply uncoil the foil and snap onto the stay. 

Aluminum Chafe Guard 
An aluminum chafe guard keeps spinnaker sheets from damaging the foil during high-speed jibes. Testing shows this guard weighs the same as aramid fiber or composite, and is impervious to wear, unlike UHMW plastic tape which wears away quickly. A Harken chafe guard is included free with the purchase of a 7000, 7001, or 7002 kit.

Sizing Harken Carbo Headsail Foils
There are several dimensions that are key when selecting a Harken carbo headsail foil for your boat. Your luff tape size and forestay diameter will determine whether you need a Unit 0, 1, 2 or 3 system. your headstay length will determine which kit to get within those sizes. For example, a boat with a 1/4" headstay diameter, a headstay length of 40' and a size 5 (5/32) luff tape size would need a Unit #0 12m foil kit.
