SEVERNE CYCLOPS EXTENSION CABLE
IN BRIEF :
The new Severne extension allows you to rig your sail in less than 3 minutes.
The CYCLOPS is equipped with a single block for quick and easy installation with a loop system.
Simply pass the rope loop through the tack block of the sail and hook it onto the single block of the extension, and you're done.
A single pull applies full tension to the tack in seconds.
All ropes and blocks are kept in perfect alignment to eliminate much of the friction and compensate for any loss of leverage due to the reduced number of blocks. An integrated handle eliminates the need for a tool.
High quality formula rope is used to further reduce friction and minimize wear.
EXCERPTS FROM THE WINDSURFJOURNAL TEST:
"Practical to use. It's a real treat when the preparation of the material hardly takes any time at all. And Severne has understood this!
The button on the extension to attach the rig to the float is also very practical. It is very easy to use thanks to its large size, which is another positive point compared to other extensions that offer buttons that are too small or difficult to reach.
Last but not least, once you've locked your tip in the cleat, there is an imprint of the tip in the heel of the extension, so you can put the extra tip in there before going to make half keys around the bottom of the extension or to put your handle in the pocket at the bottom of the sail that most of them have.
With this handy accessory and a loop system also used on the boom, our wave or freemove gear preparation takes no more than 5 minutes and it's very appreciable. It's not a gadget but an efficient object for those who sail often.
