Handle easily your headsails thanks to an FACNOR LX290 furling and reefing system!
Furling the Jib/Genoa is a simple handling operated from the cockpit.
The LX system enables to reef partially or furl completely the sail depending on weather conditions.
In regatta, the plates of the drum can be quickly removed and therefore the furler can be used just as a head foil on which a Genoa with a longer luff can be hoisted.
The rotating tack point takes up automatically the sail fullness when furling on ¼ of turn.
Already widely tested round the world, the reliable LS-LX-RX ranges are fitted with resistant sections and connectors as well as waterproof bearings running in grease.
