Ronstan traveller systems deliver the performance required for optimising sail
trim, responding quickly to changing conditions and getting the right balance
from the loads on sails, rig and foils. Ronstan systems have been put to the
test by Round the World Race teams, Vendée Globe challengers, and the
professionals on the prestige international circuits who demand the highest
performance and dependability, with no room for compromise.
Ball Bearing cars
Machined alloy car bodies provide high strength and durability with minimum
weight. Low profile cars ensure that sheets and control lines run close to the
deck. Highly efficient recirculating Torlon® ball bearing systems allow precision
adjustment and control even in the most demanding conditions.
Sliderod cars are suitable for static load applications where adjustment under
load is not required and are machined from a dedicated alloy body profile.
Attention to detail
Car bodies are machined to precise specifications, then honed to an exceptional finish before
being treated and anodised for maximum corrosion protection. Stainless steel elements
are put through a special high energy finishing process to achieve a uniquely smooth edge
and surface finish. Spring-loaded plunger stops engage with stop holes in tracks and can be
locked in the “up” (disengaged) position.
Cam cleat supports can be adjusted to the optimum cleating angle. Control sheaves provide
purchase systems for mainsheet travellers and genoa sheet lead adjustment. Ball Bearing
sheave and becket addition kits are available for cars and track control ends to provide extra
control line purchase where required.
7 track sizes are available in the standard product range, to match system specifications to
individual requirements. Beam track options are available for unsupported spans (cockpit,
companionway, hatch, etc.). Curved track can be supplied with bend in either horizontal or
vertical plane. Minimum bend radius depends on car length. See pages 130 & 131 for options
