CT AirBatten CT AirBatten The CT AirBatten was designed to meet the need for an unbreakable batten in over-lapping headsails. The CT Airbatten is an air pressurised batten that is unbreakable, fatigue resistant and able to be furled (when deflated). Successfully race tested in the 2007 America's Cup, the CT AirBatten has potential to be used on all type of yachts. Development of an airline system allows CT AirBattens to be inflated and deflated while sailing (racing). This makes CT AirBattens suitable for use with furling headsails.

Extra performance can be gained by making the headsail to the maximum size between forestay and spreaders. The stiffness of CT AirBattens also enables a roach to be supported on the headsail. Custom CT AirBattens CT AirBattens are manufactured in a range of lengths in 3 sizes: 29mm OD, 38mm OD and 54mm OD. All sizes have a 600mm long taper at the luff.
