The lightest and strongest - The new TiiTAN Block from Allen

THE NEW TiiTAN BLOCK

A key feature within the TiiTAN bearing system is the use of a precision plain bearing washer. When the TiiTAN is exposed to extreme static loads, which would normally cause damage to the internal bearing system, it changes to a plain bearing block. Stopping the ball bearings from getting damaged and thus no longer performing as designed. As soon as the static load is reduced the TiiTAN returns to a high-performing dynamic block.

The TiiTAN block is perfect for use across a wide range of boats, including high-performance dinghies, foiling dinghies, sports boats and grand prix yachts. Applications can range from vang cascades, halyard turning points, backstay systems, highly loaded cunningham, and outhaul systems.

AVAILABLE IN A SPECIFIC ILCA VANG VERSION

NEW BOOM & VANG LEVER
The new OK boom features 3 mainsheet positions to suit different fit-outs. The three holes are drilled through a neutral axis to resist bending forces and then fitted with aluminium through bushes to allow for soft attachment of blocks.

The V2 Vang lever is designed for use on both the Finn and OK Dinghy. Four large custom-made sheaves guide the primary vang control line around the central axle. The large radius of these sheaves helps reduce loading and friction. Making the V2 Vang Lever easier to control when pulling or easing the control line.
