Gyb'Easy boom brake


Why a boom brake?

Gybing remains one of the most challenging operations on a sailing boat even for experienced sailors and can possibly generate injuries and material damage. Gyb'Easy is an efficient and safe solution to reduce such risks. Thanks to the frictions of the specific line called Gyb'Flex passing over the boom brake, the boom is allowed to gybe smoothly and without jerks. The more the line passes over the openings, the more the friction is increased and hence the brake efficiency. The adjustment is made thanks to the tension of the line.

3 different positions exist for a better adaptation of the mainsail and wind conditions. It takes a few minutes to install it on a eye strap of the boom. Two different fittings can be implemented to fit with all the deck configurations.

Technical data:

  • Can be used on mainsail areas below 40 sqm.
  • Gyb'Flex line supplied: Length 16 m / Diameter 11 mm.
  • Weight 0,600 Kg.
