This has become a popular block in the vang systems of the Laser / ILCA / Moth (without key) or indeed any boat where the sailor is looking for an alternative to the Harken 25mm (wire) high load block.
(The range also includes 20mm & 40mm blocks & available in black & blue)
“The XHL block range has been designed to deal with extremely high loads without compromising on low load dynamic performance.
By combining our patented dynamic bearing technology with a plain bearing peek washer we have created a bearing technology that has extreme dynamic performance even after being subject to static loads of up to 1500kg.
Coupling this XHL bearing technology with CNC machined aluminium side cheeks and precision turned stainless-steel sheave has resulted in a range of blocks that are perfect for use in vang cascades, halyard turning points and backstay systems, where static loads can be extremely high but low load dynamic performance is also required.
The XHL range is available in 3 sheave sizes and in six vibrant colours allowing you to customise your boat or control system.” (Allen brothers Ltd.)
