The TiiTAN bearing system is one of a kind. Featuring twin rows of ceramic ball bearings running on a stainless-steel axle giving the titanium sheave unmatched rolling speeds. Ceramic ball bearings also offer the added benefit of reduced friction in salt water, when compared to stainless steel bearings.
At the heart of the TiiTAN is a precision bearing system with a plain bearing axel washer. When exposed to extreme static loads, the Tiitan bearing system transfers the load onto a high load plain bearing axel. This load transfer protects the ball bearings from static load distortion. As soon as the static pressure is reduced the TiiTAN returns to a high-performing dynamic block. The point at which this change happens has undergone meticulous testing and development to ensure the block stays in dynamic mode for as long as possible.
Aluminium side cheeks hold the TiiTAN together offering a much stronger and longer-lasting body that holds its shape under extreme loads. These side cheeks feature a chamfered rope guide to keep the block in the correct orientation as well as two lashing line holes. We recommend using thin whipping twine or kite line to lash the attachment rope in place.
The TiiTAN block is perfect for use across a wide range of boats, including high-performance dinghies, foiling dinghies, sports boats and grand prix yachts.
