full-batten mainsail

Full-batten mainsails (i.e. with battens running along its entire width) usually require an efficient sliding system. The common mainsail luff is not enough: usually, a special track must be applied to the mast, above the luff, on which particular travelers  are made to slide.

Ballslide Batten System by Ronstan is an innovative system that makes raising and lowering the mainsail quick and easy, without the need for any additional mast track.

Ballslide Batten SystemINSTALLATION & PROS

Installation is quick and easy: Ballslide cars run on twin races of recirculating ball bearings specifically designed and oriented for compression loads. Hoisting and dropping the mainsail has never been easier!

Pros are multiple: less weight, no additional cost, no additional track required. Furthermore, all bearings are captive, allowing for easy installation and removal.

AN “ADAPTIVE” SYSTEM

Ballside systems include headboards, battens, intermediate travelers and batten boxes.  With a complete range of car profiles and feet there is a Ballslide™ solution for most available mast profiles and luff groove shapes on mono-hull boats up to 18m and multihulls up to 11m.
