Gybing remains one of the most challenging operations on a sailboat even for experienced sailors. The brake has proprietary Gyb'Flex line passing over the boom brake itself. Thanks to its design features and the friction of the line on the brake, the boom is allowed to gybe smoothly. The Gyb'Flex rope absorbs the shock loading.

Wichard 7150 Gyb'Easy Boom Brake

Gybe safely with Wichard's Gyb'Easy boom brake.
  • Why a Boom Brake?
    • Gybing remains one of the most challenging operations on a sailing boat even for experienced sailors and can possibly generate injuries and material damage. Gyb'Easy is an efficient and safe solution to reduce such risks.
  • Concept:
    • Thanks to the friction of the proprietary Gyb'Flex rope passing over the boom brake, the boom is allowed to gybe smoothly and without jerks. The more the line passes over the openings, the more the friction is increased and hence the brake efficiency.
  • Settings of the Gyb'Easy:
    • The adjustment is made thanks to the tension of the line. 3 Different (wraps of line) settings allow for adaptation of the mainsail and wind conditions.
  • Easy installation: It only takes a few minutes to install it on a eye strap of the boom. Two different fittings can be implemented to fit with all the deck configurations.
  • For mainsail areas below 402 m
  • Gyb'Flex line supplied (Wichard part: 7148):
