Strong, lightweight composite roller bearings and bushing (in sized 20 winches) have excellent corrosion resistance and don’t require lubrication. Winches haven’t seen changes like these in more than 20 years! Combining advanced technology and materials with the creative minds of Harken Italy engineers, Harken’s Radial winch line is revolutionary and breaks through to the next level in winch design.
Details sailors will appreciate: weight reductions between 25 and 50 percent, allowing smaller winches to carry higher loads; shaped gripping surfaces for reduced line wear; stress-free seasonal maintenance, and one-person installation with easy upgrades to power.
We designed Radial winches from the deck up with three key ideas in mind: safety and long-lasting performance, streamlined installations, and hydraulic and electric upgrades as integral parts of the design, said Technical Director Andrea Merello.This all-new winch line represents a continuation of Harken’s goal of providing sailors with innovative ground-breaking products that will enrich their sailing experience.
