Barton Traveller Systems Selection Guide
Select the optimum traveller and genoa car system to suit your boat and your sailing
Barton is a truly low friction system, realistically priced and designed for use on both cruising and racing yachts.
Travellers, end fittings and track are all extruded from top quality marine grade aluminium and finished in Barton's unique 'Spectro' grey anodised finish.
Aesthetic design, clean lines, high-tech materials and finishes all go to make this range of traveller cars a functional and practical enhancement to any sailboat. All end fittings feature a soft rubberised moulded cap, designed to withstand high impact without causing damage.
Standard travellers run on precision ground delrin balls. A Torlon ball package is offered where higher load applications are required. Torlon balls give up to 40% more load bearing capacity. These packages are available in all three sizes and for long or short travellers.
Double take off travellers:
With either shackle or toggle attachments, these allow coarse/fine tune mainsheet systems to be achieved. They can also be used with a link plate to allow for increased rolling load with the longer cars.
Control line sheaves:
In sizes 2 and 3 these feature our low friction large diameter ball bearing sheave system.
Shackle take off:
Feature a high load forged stainless steel pivoting shackle.
Toggle take off:
Features a solid cast stainless steel upstand with a soft rubber anti-tumble bearing fitted, preventing damage when blocks are not under load. These take offs accept the swivel post from our cruiser blocks and help achieve a truly low profile system.
