Antal Low Friction Rings & Solid Rings

Six models with holes from 7 to 38 mm, the simplest idea for maximum load and minimum weight.

Low friction rings are at the heart of Soft links. Simple, lightweight and resistant Rings, together with more sophisticated products, such as Solid rings and Hooks, revolutionized the way we design fixed and running rigging on sailboats, and not only on sailboats. Thanks to the perfect polishing Soft links give extremely low friction. The first of Soft links’ characteristics is versatility. I can use a Ring as barber, or lazy jack. On the backstay bridle instead of a sheave or for 8:1 control systems. For reefing or 3D genoa adjusting. And obviously, as a block.
