Description

Deluxe Aluminium Tiller Extension for the Laser®.

Made from anodized 16 mm Aluminum tube. Supplied fitted with a UJ and an EVA foam grip.

Aluminium tiller extensions are not as strong or stiff as a carbon extension but a lot cheaper and a good option for those on a tight budget.

The difference between carbon and aluminium? - Carbon produces a very light weight, high strength extension. The stiffness can be controlled by the materials used and because it has a certain amount of flex, it will not bend out of shape - the downside, this technology can be expensive. Aluminium, however, is a simple low tech solution that just employs a length of aluminium tube which, if abused, will bend out of shape but can usually be straightened. If the tube is made too thick to help reduce the risk of bending, the tube becomes too heavy to use. This extension therefore is a tradeoff between price, strength and use.

    Ilca tiller extension class legal

    It feels sturdy with a comfortable grip. It came with the fitting to attach to the tiller, so it was very straight forward to fit.

    Just the job

    Bought to replace a tiller extension that was too short on my Streaker, easy to fit and much better to handle and grip than the old one.

    Laser Aluminium Tiller Extension

    Product came quickly and was packed well.

    The tiller extension looks the part and the end detail is practical.

    Length at 42 inch is conservative and will allow safer tacking, jamming of the tiller extension against the vang, causing an embarrassing, roll in capsize seems less likely.

    Painting the product black with a white end might help in carrying out that bit of magic behind the helms back in the hundred millisecond a laser can tack.
