Spinex 2.5

Spinex 2.5 – Top down spinnaler furler

General description

Discover our Spinex, the new solution to furl and unfurl asymmetric spinnakers.
Thanks to the integration of the Sail Bearing Technology developped by Profurl, with a Spinex system you will be able to operate easily and safely your asymmetric spinnaker.
 

ADVANTAGES TO USING SPINEX

SAIL BEARING TECHNOLOGY: EFFICIENT, RELIABLE FURLING
Problem: Because asymmetric spinnaker cloth is both light and fragile, the anti-twist cable has a tendency to damage it. Also, the cable spins faster than the sail during furling which means the latter sometimes jams. Profurl solution: Sail Bearing Technology comprises high-density spheres that spin freely around the anti-twist cable in order to protect the sail from the cable. Sail Bearing Technology allows you to:
• keep the sail away from the cable
• stop reverse furling, which causes the sail to jam
• reduce wear of the sailcloth
• make furling easier and faster because it has a greater diameter
than the cable on its own

 A COMPLETE SYSTEM READY TO USE
• SPINEX comes with drum, swivel, cable, end fittings, tack swivel, etc.
• Except for the length of the cable, SPINEX is ready to fit and ready to use out of the box.

 MULTI-PURPOSE and adaptable
• Remove the tack swivel and turn your SPINEX into a NEX ready to use with gennakers and code zeros.
• Profurl’s SPIN KIT fits on NEX furlers.

OTHER ADVANTAGES:
• Compatible with NEX technology, such as I-Connect, Safe System, etc.
• Improved safety when worked from the cockpit or short-handed.
• Requires little storage space.
• System compatible with all types of asymmetric spinnakers.
