Allen XHL Block in BlueAllen High Load Blocks patented high strength 316 stainless steel line friendly ultra strap, to the soft contours of the sheave and cheeks moulded from advanced engineering polymers, patented dynamic bearing technology featuring twin rows of 316 stainless steel ball bearings all held together with a meticulously designed 316 stainless steel jacket.

Once you have made the ultimate block, how do you improve on it? Allen set a new standard for extreme performance when they introduced the A2030XHL block in 2015, so introducing different sizes to make it relevant to a wider range of applications seemed the obvious route. The new A2020XHL and its big brother the A2040XHL are already setting new performance benchmarks in extreme sailing.
