Wichard MXLEvo 12mm Max Line Soft Block

Wichard is proud to present the MXLEvo: a soft block solution designed for all yachtsmen, whether amateur or pro. Designed for heavy load applications (mast foot, halyard tackle, barber hauler, snatch blocks, etc.), this system is available in three sizes.

Economical and easy to use:

Delivered complete with a Dyneema SK78 loop, you don't need any specific technical knowledge to use the MXLEvo. It can be installed quickly and easily on any type of anchoring (chain plate, head ropes, etc.). The rope housing keeps the ropes inside the block when there is no load on the system. The MXLEvo offers excellent value for money. It is one of the cheapest soft blocks on the market.

Heavy load applications:

The MXLEvo is designed to be used with heavier loads (low rope movement speed). As such, it is the perfect solution for use as: a mast foot block, halyard tackle, barber hauler, block and tackle, sheet return, large sail foot, etc.).

Lightweight, robust and highly compact:

MXLEvo provides exceptional resistance for its weight. In comparison with a standard competitor's block, The MXLEvo 12 is:

  • twice as robust

  • half the weight

  • a third of the size

  • For a breaking load of 5 tonnes, the MXLEvo 16 is 35% lighter.

  • A reliable solution with no need for maintenance; as it does not contain any moving parts (such as a sheave), the MXLEvo is extremely reliable and requires no maintenance.

    Adaptable to your deck plan

    The loop on the MXLEvo can be positioned in one of two ways, making it easily adaptable to your deck and to whatever anchoring point or chain plate alignment you choose.
