Dinghy Tiller Extensions

Our tiller extensions combine the properties and appearance of carbon fibres, aramid fibres and heat cured epoxy to produce what, we think, is the best tiller extension on the market.

Our tiller extension is 22mm untapered so it’s easier to grip. Also the fibres aren’t unidirectional; by orienting fibres off axis we’ve engineered a little bit of bend and improved the durability. The final layer is an open-weave, spiral helix in aramid (Kevlar) fibre which further improves damage tolerance and grip. It also aids to keep the extension in one piece even if the carbon fibres are broken. This could be the difference between a finish and a DNF.
