Octopus XL Pulley System
The Octopus XL pulley system has all the features of the Classic pulley system - ergonomic, sturdy (max. load 250kg) and efficient. The difference is that it uses double-diameter pulleys, which significantly decreases the friction due to the angle of the rope against the pulley, but otherwise works in exactly the same way as the Classic model.
It enables you to let the rope down with one hand, and pull it up easily by putting your foot against the pulley and using your hands to pull up the rope (much easier than the conventional method of lying on top of your buoy!), which is much more efficient in case of an emergency.
Made with top-quality components:
- a strong structure (polyamide charged with 40% fiberglass balls)
- a thick 8mm anodized aluminum arm (ALU6061)
- two low frictions polyamide pulleys for ropes 8 to 13mm
- marine stainless steel screws
The Octopus XL pulley model is designed to be used with ropes of 11mm or thicker to maximise efficiency of rope management, but will also work perfectly well with ropes of smaller diameter.
