Cyclops Marine is the newest name garnering attention in the sailing technology and innovation field. Until now their focus has been on smaller boats, developing technology in partnership with INEOS TEAM UK, the UK's America's Cup team, and subsequently supplying multiple Olympic sailing teams.

Maximising speed may be their forte, but it was only a matter of time before their devices found homes on superyachts - giving sailors the ability to measure the load on anything from the mainsheet, to code sail tack lines, to backstays and runners, potentially applicable to any soft line under significant load. Accurate second-by-second load measurements are sent wirelessly to the Cyclops app or on-board instruments, and can then be logged in conjunction with GPS data for reliable, repeatable settings.

Thus, Cyclops is pleased to announce the newest addition to their smartlink range - designed specifically for use on larger boats and superyachts - the 20T. Using the same technology helping elite sailors around the world measure loads on critical, high performance lines, the minds at Cyclops have extended their obsession with making sensors sleek, robust and precise, but have let loose in making a larger, super-strong edition.

The result is the big brother of the smartlink range, still compact in design, its titanium frame measuring just 107 x 88mm, and weighing just 789g. Yet, as its name suggests, the new smartlink packs a considerable punch by remaining accurate under loads of up to 20T, and has aperture crafted and aligned specifically for the rigging of superyachts - unquestionably the strongest load sensor for its weight.

Some of the world's greatest sailors have shown how Cyclops data helps you win, now you can take the guesswork out of safety and performance on your superyacht with this precision technology.

The 20T smarttune is available through a global distribution network. For more information visit www.cyclopsmarine.com, or email us at .
