More Speed and Power for your Grinders and Trimmers
A revolution in winch design comes from France. Pontos from Saint Malo in France has introduced a new standard to the world of winches. Their game-changing winches revolutionize the way you manoeuvre. Pontos brings racing technology to everyone and boosts your performance to new levels.
Award winning innovation Winner of the 2014 SAIL Magazine Pittman Award for Innovation, the Grinder and Trimmer Four-Speed Winches are faster and more powerful than all other winches on the market. And affordable. A boon to racers and cruisers alike. A third revolutionary winch, the Compact, packs more power in a smaller size—a real asset on sailboats where weight and space matter.
Easy Handling Raising a mainsail is almost child’s play with the Trimmer. Fast sheeting around the leeward mark to get to windward before the rest of the fleet has never been easier with the Grinder. Furl and sheet faster with the Compact. Proof of the pudding: Pontos winches were selected by nine racers in the 2014 Route du Rhum singlehanded 3,542 nautical mile transatlantic race. Pontos winches met the challenge.
