New Spinlock Zero Vest available at Mauri Pro Sailing Store

Spinlock Zero Vest The Spinlock Zero is designed especially for performance keelboat sailors, targeting the particular needs of this competitive and fast-growing group. Zero Vest combines articulation and a slim profile with unique ventilation features, creating a low-bulk vest for the Sportsboat sailors.

A fresh approach to the design and ergonomics of the product allows Spinlock Zero Vest to be worn like a close-fitting performance garment. Ultra stretch neoprene panels allow free articulation in the key body zones for active hiking and trapezing. The unique Body Fit adjuster ensures a streamlined fit for any shape of user across the whole size range.

Revolutionary new venting and fast-draining features increase breathability, allowing functional garments such as spray tops to perform underneath, as well as preventing water overloading - all problems that can impede best performance.

Wichard MX Shackles at Mauri Pro Sailing Store

Wichard MX Halyard Shackles Wichard's new MX is a High Resistance halyard shackle fully forged in 17/4 PH stainless steel to take on the high loads. MX has been specifically designed for static load operations and can be used to replace the terminals on flying sail furlers (i.e. halyard block) or as a 2:1 purchase for your mainsail and is now available for you on Mauri Pro Sailing Store.

Thanks to its unique design, the MX can excellently distribute the stresses and its particular shape enables it to perfectly position the line to avoid undue and excessive wear on the line.

The Wichard MX shackle can effectively replace the terminal of your flying sail furlers, especially the halyard block, by providing an outstanding strength/weight ratio. When luff tension is needed, it can be used to replace the halyard block on top swivel or to replace the lower terminal on spool (snap shackle etc.).

Wichard have specifically designed the MX shackle to adapt itself to the heads of most mainsails. Thus it can be used in place of a 2:1 purchase on a mainsail halyard making it easier to tension the halyard and hoist the mainsail.
