The arguably the strongest tiller on the market utilising space age technology.
Manufactured on a mandrill with pre-preg materials to produce the most consolidated carbon fibres ever! Each tiller is additionally wound with 45 degree twill to improve the tillers hoop strength and make it bash and crush resistant.
Fitted with a stainless steel plate to prevent traveller wear, and a cleat to allow easy and efficient use of a rudder pull down rope. The side cleat fitted is a CLAMCLEAT CL277AN RACING MICRO CLEAT
There are TWO tiller type/styles available, either the standard profile or the low profile style.
The Standard type tiller is for the Laser hull built in the UK and Europe by Performance Sailcraft Europe from 1969 to March 2019. The current 'Laser' is built by Laser Performance.
Low profile type tiller is for the Australian built Lasers, the ILCA Ovington boat (UK March 2019 onwards) and the Devoti ILCA (EU) builders.

"Once upon a time long before the ILCA, there were lasers produced by Laser Performance Australia that had more of a release angle on the transom. Despite the rules controlling the angle of the blade in the rudder stock, this increased released angle made the rudder more vertical. This also made tillers sit up higher over the traveller cleat. We then reduced the angle of the tiller head and thus was born the Aussie version of our world famous tiller. If you used one on a UK Laser - the Aussie tiller would hit the cleat and was not nice. At the same time Lasers in the UK, Europe and the USA, had less of a release angle and our normal tiller was made for them. Giving them the best clearance over the cleat for windy wave sailing.
Since the ILCA was born we can now assume that ILCA moulds were taken from the original Australian builder so our normal tiller now might appear too high. Now the nature of our tiller head means you can re profile the shape with a file and some fettling. However, if you are confident that you have an ILCA taken from an Aussie hull mould, and your gudgeons are not warn out - then the ILCA version of the tiller is what you want". Steve Cockerill
