Zircon blocks are the most efficient small boat blocks that Harken have ever made. At their core are industrial ceramic ball bearings mounted inside caged races. Zircon bearings are 700% stronger in compression than equivalent stainless bearings and need less energy to start rolling.

Mark Jardine, Managing Editor of YachtsandYachting.com and Sail-World.com, talks to David Brown of Harken UK at the RYA Dinghy & Watersports Show about the ultra-low friction Zircon block range.
