Marine design and manufacturing company, Spinlock will showcase two industry-firsts at boot Düsseldorf, the world’s largest indoor boat show, from 18-26 January.
With over 30 years’ experience, Spinlock is world leaders in the design and manufacturing of rope handling and personal safety equipment for sailing boats, dinghies and superyachts.
The company’s products are often showcased by being used in prestigious events such as the America’s Cup, the Volvo Ocean Race and Clipper Round the World Race.
The latest advance in rope holding technology
Visitors to the show will get an exclusive look at the successor to the company’s massively popular XTS0814 Powerclutch – the XTR0812.
The new XTR has been re-engineered to provide consistent and responsive control, further boosting its performance across the full diameter rope range and significantly improving holding on the latest small diameter rope types.
Compact, lightweight and with new styling to complement modern yacht design, the XTR rope clutch is designed for consistent holding on modern performance lines. Requiring just one-person installation for a variety of mounting options, simple removal of the jaws also allows for deck cleaning and servicing to maintain long term performance.
The XTX Powerclutch from Spinlock’s new soft grip clutch range is packed with must-have features for high performance on the water.
Easy to set up with no performance tuning and no need for handle rotation space, its lightweight uniquely small profile and neat retracting toggle give fingertip control of clutching power.
Controlled, consistent release across a full range of loads means that it is also gentle on rope covers, so increasing your ropes’ life.
Further benefits of the Spinlock XTX clutch range include easy installation, upgrades and maintenance, with service kits available for each and replaceable parts.
“As the most influential platform for international product debuts in the industry and a key date in the diary for sailing enthusiasts, boot Düsseldorf presents the ideal opportunity to show visitors from all over the world our cutting-edge performance-boosting new products,” James Hall Sales & Marketing Manager for Spinlock, said.
You can meet the team and view all the new products on the Spinlock exhibition stand G21 in Hall 10.
