For Carefree Sailing
The 4th generation of Furlex is
an uncompromising evolution of
the world’s best selling jib furling
and reefing system. Proven design

The halyard swivel for Furlex
104S and 404S features stainless
ball bearings. The load is
centered by the attachment of
the Dyneema® lashing.
The twin-groove luff extrusion and the split drum allow the racing sailor to convert the Furlex for racing. The cruising sailor can use the extrusion for 'wing on wing' downwind sailing with two genoas poled out to eaither side.
NEW Two sets of stainless ball
bearings and one additional set
of roller bearings for low friction
and low lateral deflection.

stainless steel. Seldén’s
patented load distributor for
Furlex 204S and 304S makes for
low furling resistance and
durability. This concept was
launched in 1983 and it still
performs flawlessly today.
Tack swivel with a 'free turn' and a uniform
cross section of the luff extrusion make for a
perfectly furled sail and effective performance
even when reefed. It also reduces the effort needed to furl that first turn.
NEW The tack ring has a smaller
diameter compared to previous
models and the shackle is also
smaller. This combination
reduces the initial furling

The forestay wire is centred and insulated the full length of the extrusion enabling the extrusion to rotate evenly around the wire. The furling
resistance is reduced and chafe between the wire and the extrusion is eliminated.
NEW The Furlex Aero Groove system reduces drag
and creates improved flow over the luff extrusion and consequently, the sail.
NEW The luff extrusion consists of 2400 mm sections
connected with an aluminium joining sleeve and a stainless
steel connecting plate. The joining sleeve transmits the torque
within the extrusions, and the connecting plates keep the
sections together with a slight gap between them. This way
chafe is avoided on both the extrusions and the sail.
