McConaghy Carbon Fibre Performance Wheels fit most major pedestal brands and have always been the only choice for many pro-sailors. It is little wonder then, that seven out of eight yachts in the 2011-2012 Volvo Ocean Race featured McConaghy steering wheels and systems. Our wheels will not only offer some serious performance benefits to skippers on a lot of production boats, they really are a great looking piece of kit both out on the course and moored to the quay.
Light weight, ergonomically designed and warm to the touch McConaghy Carbon Fibre Steering Wheels reduce flywheel effect and put skippers back in touch with their rudder providing unprecedented rudder feedback and control.
