A new range of tiller extensions is now available from Allen. The blue carbon tiller extension range features a larger outside diameter than previous Allen models, as well as a peel-ply grip that runs the length of the tube.

Allen Brothers has been working alongside their Team Allen sailors to make sure the new range is stiff enough to give you the right amount of feedback, yet forgiving enough to take a good beating. Although performance was at the top of the checklist it soon became apparent style should be too.

Managing Director of Allen Brothers, Liz Adams, commented on the style of the new range, "The new Blue Carbon range has a dark blue wrap included in the carbon tube, it gives a really nice blue shine in the sun. It's something that hasn't been done before in tiller extensions and we feel it really makes the whole thing pop! It will give the end user the best quality performance as well as making the boat look great."

The Blue Carbon range is available in five different sizes, and lengths over 1.9 meters come with a smaller end knob to reduce outboard weight. The Blue Carbon range is available direct from www.allenbrothers.co.uk or you can order one via your local Allen stockist.

Allen Brothers, the leading UK manufacturer of sailboat hardware, have been working alongside their Team Allen sailors to produce innovative and high performing hardware for the last 60 years.
