Mainsail Handling Battcar System A Slider Batten Cars
The one-piece solid aluminum
construction of the Harken Battcar System A Slider Cars is
lightweight and strong. Cars are easily removed from the track by freeing
screwpin endstop and sliding them off. Both
CB and Slider Battcar systems use the same
track. Mix and match sliders and ball bearing
cars for optimal performance and cost.
Slider Battcars offer a lightweight, costeffective
way to raise, reef, and douse
mainsails. Hardcoat anodized aluminum
cars slide on low-friction plastic inserts.
The compact car size translates into
reduced weight and stack height.
