Product Description

Harken Crossbow Self-Tacking Jib Systems - 20mm

The Crossbow™ is a self-tacking jib system designed for high-performance dinghies, skiffs, and catamarans under six meters (20 feet). The system features a curved track that hinges to align both car and track with the sheet loads for less friction, more load-bearing capacity, and for an ultra-lightweight design.

The two-piece car body is machined of 6061-T6 aluminum and Hard Lube-anodized for strength and corrosion resistance. Curved races evenly distribute the loads on Torlon® ball bearings for low-friction rolling. A Delrin® cap keeps the balls captive when the car is removed from the track. The hardcoat-anodized track has three pivoting attachment points that distribute the load.

Track is offered in 20 or 50 mm heights. Use 50 mm track with a single-line spinnaker system. The track’s center strut has a hole for a fair, chafe-free halyard lead.
