Ronstan’s Orbit Winches™ are a new benchmark in high performance alloy winches. With a combination of fresh design thinking and proven manufacturing expertise, Orbit Winches weigh significantly less and offer lower line entry heights than any other winch in their class. Remarkably easy to service, they require no tools for disassembly or maintenance.
The fully machined aluminium drums feature the same Power Ribs™ that many will recognize from Andersen Stainless Steel Winches®, well-known for their impressive line grip, smooth control, and minimal rope wear.
Orbit Winches sizes 30QT and larger are equipped with the unique, patented QuickTrim™ self-tailer. This truly functional innovation allows sailors to easily and safely ease line tension to make minor sail trim adjustments without removing the winch handle or taking the line out of the self-tailer. With QuickTrim, racing sailors can react and respond instantly to minor course corrections or changes in wind pressure and direction, providing an unmatched advantage when frequent sail trim adjustments are required. Cruising sailors will also appreciate the simple convenience when adjusting sail trim.
Ronstan Orbit Winches are available now in sizes 20ST, 30QT, and 40QT.
