Sail Slide - Kiwi 4 sizes
Kiwi slides are normally sewn to the sail luff or can be laced through eyelets, and are actually stronger then the sail itself. They provide 50% less friction than the luff tape when hoisting or lowering a headsail.
By using Kiwi Slides you have a captive luff at all times - same as with hanked- on sails - which allows you to load or unload one sail while the other is working, if you have a double- groove luff extension . For short- handed crew, the captive luff means easy amd safe sail- handling for single and twin sails.
Sail conversion is easier and cheaper than luff tape. More than 3,500 sails have been fitted with Kiwi Slides; ask your sail maker to use them for your next sail conversion instead of luff tape.
