When performance matters
 
As used by Sir Ben Ainslie on the AC45, the C-Tech adjustable tiller extension is a premium product.

A custom-developed, robust locking cam ensures your tiller extension will stay at its pre-set length at all times. 

The composite construction means no plastic memory so you will always have a smooth telescoping function.

Full Carbon J-Foils


New Technology

C-Tech has recently completed a set of J-foils for an SL33 using a new construction method. Utilising previous experience gained from Americas Cup foil projects we developed a full composite elbow join.
 
Previous J foils had been manufactured with a metal elbow to join the main shaft to the lifting surface. This was to overcome high loading in this area. Metal elbows alone can be up to 40kg if there is a large radius in the design.
 
C-Tech developed a method that would make a full composite foil possible. An elbow was tested to verify the construction method and the results exceeded all expectations. It was in fact the testing jig that failed at a load double of what the designers were expecting.

The finished J -foils weigh 34.5 kg and are stronger, lighter and stiffer than superseded set.  The key to the success of this project has been in developing a cost-effective manufacturing method that enables the right mix of off-axis fibre in the elbow that has been consolidated by autoclave pressure.
