Used by most sailors on the PWA TOUR, the Mono-Button Mast Base and Extension System (MXT) is designed to offer a secure, heavy-duty connection and ease of operation. MXT extension is fully integrated with stainless steel clusters/pulleys that provide the best weight-to-stiffness ratio and create very light but also very strong extensions.
Weight has been reduced by eliminating all unnecessary plastic, while increasing the cross-section of stainless steel parts for increased strength. This part can now withstand over 900kg of hauling load, double that used on the largest racing sails.
The special geometry with tilt bottom pulley provides perfect sail pulley/rope alignment. This allows the sail to be hauled all the way down (block-to-block) and it reduces hauling friction.
