The Antal pedestal in carbon fibre relies on a belt drive that guarantees a light system. Thanks to the push buttons (Mod. C003), the person operating the handles can control one, two or more winches independently. Note that the push button does not engage the third speed: this can be still engaged by pushing the winch knob at the base of the winch. The system also comprises drive shafts (Mod. C004), in customised lengths on request, and gearboxes (Mod. C006).Moreover, the cardan joints (Mod. C005) allow the drive shafts to be angled even to a large degree, thus enabling them to adapt to any hull design. Carbon fibre pedestal, with belt drive on toothed sheaves that are mounted on steel roller bearings. Drive-box, which transmits the drive from the pedestal to the axle of the single winch. Push-button, which turns the drive-box on and off, and permits to choose which winch to work on. Aluminium drive shaft with black anodized ribbed end. Customised length on request. Aluminium universal joint with HR steel axles, mounted on both ends of the drive shaft, which enables to incline the shaft by large degrees. Gear box in right and left hand version, bronze gears on ball/roller bearings, HR steel axles and black anodized aluminium box.View More
XT R is the racing winch series obtained from the standard XT series. Self-tailing XT system, differentiated grip of the drum knurling, CNC base and skirt, fast opening screwed ring, axle with low friction PVD finishing. And in addition to reduce the weight: aluminium stem, peek roller bearings for the drum and the main shaft lightened gears and main shaft. To reduce weight, XT series winches are mounted on bearings with peek resin roller on an aluminium stem. Antal alloy gears mounted on low-friction and hard wearing PVD treated axles; corrosion-proof insulating gaskets. The base, machined by the CNC process (produced with computer numeric control machines with no cast components), is lighter and stronger than normal castings.View More

Outhaul cars allow to control the mainsail clew angle, and thus the sail belly. Antal offers two types of car for the clew angle control: with HS fibre sliders for traditional mainsails and with ball bearings for furling sails. Outhauls cars are available for boats up to 60’View More
FB24.120 system, 120 mm sliders. All components’ dimension and the distances of the sail from the mast are found in the sheet Full Batten Systems – Measures. Designed for large boats and for mainsails with a large roach, they offer the high strength of HS Fibre Guides (for tension load) and the low friction of the Torlon ball bearing (for compression). Maximum load because the HS fibre guides give excellent resistance to the main pull loads despite the compact size of the carriages. Each batten end fitting is attached to a slider with a triaxial joint to ensure that the batten can freely orient itself under all points of sail. At least one simple slider should be attached to the sail with nylon webbing between two battens. A headboard is attached to the sail with webbing and is secured to the slider (double) with a clevis pin which allows the headboard to pivot and to be removed. Self-captive bearings: it’s impossible for the bearings in the slider to come out, so it’s possible to take off the sliders from the track.View More
In 2008 Antal introduced the Low Friction Ring to the market, a product that revolutionized the line-handling on sailboats. In 2020 Antal introduces SectoRing, the spinning ring with a guiding cover, small in size and low in weight, the perfect solution for high loads where large and fast movements are not required.View More
Roller is a folding cleat with rotating horns: with a simple gesture of your hand, you can open or close roller even with the line on, just by turning one of the horns. Roller is open: you can easily tie or remove the mooring line. Roller is closed: this position minimizes the size and, more important, prevents other lines from getting caught. The horns can be shut down or turned up even under load. Roller is the only folding cleat you can close with the line on. Roller has perfectly rounded shapes in order not to damage the mooring lines. Available in 4 sizes and 2 finishes: silver (/SI) or black anodized (/B).View More
