Plain bearing blocks
Wichard plain bearing blocks provide robustness, UV resistance and endurance thanks to the use of suitable composite materials. They are ideal for manœuvres involving minimal distances and heavy loads (mastfoot block, mainsail foot, backstay, downhaul, reefing point etc...)
Ball bearing blocks
The ball bearing blocks range is perfect for manœuvres requiring both speed and large distances (spinnaker sheets and halyards, mainsail travelers, mainsail sheet)
The Wichard roller block range has been developed to provide reliability, endurance and performance. They are particularly useful for dynamic manœuvres under heavy loads: mainsail sheet, mastfoot block etc…
HR roller blocks
Just like the roller block range, the HR roller blocks are intended for heavy loads with their Torlon roller bearings and their HR stainless steel shackles.
Stainless steel blocks
The Wichard stainless steel block range is perfect for the genoa and various adjustments on cruisers with limited loads. The wide selection of attachments means that they are easy to accommodate on board.
This range of blocks includes friction rings and MXLEVO soft blocks and is aimed for use under heavy loads or low traffic: backstay, barber-hauler, mastfoot block, mainsail foot
Fitted to a pad eye or toe rail, Wichard snatch blocks are highly used for taking up a rope already reeved.
Many block accessories are available allowing you to optimise your deck layout
