Industry Database

Spinlock, designers and manufactures of control products, lifejackets and PFDs, will launch its latest range of products at boot Düsseldorf, including the DAME award winning Sail-Sense.

The app-driven sail sensor has been designed to provide sailors and racing teams with information about the use and condition of their sails.

The sensor is permanently attached to a sail and measures key performance data including UV exposure, G-force and movement which in turn is fed to an app via Bluetooth connectivity.


Other new products for 2019 include the EAC carbon tiller extension that has evolved from the company’s EA tiller extension.

The extension is 50% lighter than its predecessor due to the incorporation of the latest technology and productive materials, whilst still offering the same strength and helm response.

Also making its boat show debut will be Spinlock’s ALTO belt pack flotation aid, the latest edition to the company’s PFD collection.


The inflatable pack has been designed for use by a variety of water-sports enthusiasts including SUP, kayakers and small motor-boat users.

The 50N floatation aid is worn around the waist. Upon deployment, an inflatable tube is released from the waist pack to provide support to the user under the arms and around the chest.
