Barton Marine's Laser kits have now been approved as class legal for the Laser Class, providing a great new option for sailors looking for lightweight, free-running gear to upgrade their one design Laser. Extensively tested, sailors across the globe can train and race with confidence given Barton's proven quality and durability in the dinghy classes.

The Barton Laser range consists of three complete kits for the Outhaul, Downhaul and Kicker as well as Mini K-Cams, Size 0 Blocks and Ratchet Blocks. All of these products are class legal and provide great value after-market upgrades.

Barton's Kicker Kit's powerful 15:1 purchase is achieved through clever design of the base plate, fitted with the unique Barton fully swiveling triple cam block. The Outhaul Kit is strong and lightweight, with a simple toggle release for the mainsail clew. The Barton Downhaul Kit comes with 8:1 purchase for those who find the standard system a struggle. The whole kit range is easy to fit and includes high performance line.

Christian Brewer, Barton Marine Global Sales Manager said, "It's fantastic that our Kicker, Downhaul and Outhaul kits are now officially approved by The Laser Class. We have been manufacturing replica kits to the class for years and these can now be used at Laser class events. Our Rising Star, Harry Newton is also on board to help us with R&D as we look to further improve our Laser kits."
