Kenyon 3/4" Traveller Cars
Kenyon Traveller Cars feature SS wheels with SS Ball Bearings in free-floating races for minimum friction. Race design allows easy maintenance with only fresh water rinse. Free-floating races, while affording a minimum of friction and ease of maintenance, mean that Wheels and Ball bearings are held captive by the Track itself. All Cars are shipped on Car Loaders. Cars should be moved back onto a Car Loader when removing the Car from the Track (as with Ball-bearing Tracks), otherwise Wheels and balls will go amiss. See: Car Loaders. 4-Wheel cars are suitable for mainsails up to 200-sq. ft. with end boom sheeting. 8-Wheel cars are suitable for mainsails up to 500-sq. ft. with end boom sheeting.
