When Harken sets out to create a block for sailors who have always believed they didn’t need Harken, what happens? The new Element block. The name hints at its essence: everything that doesn’t contribute durability or strength is stripped away. The result is an economical block that does a Harken job.
Element blocks introduce sideplates that combine forged aluminum and compound curves for strength. They are simultaneously contemporary and very robust. Element’s design pairs the minimum amount of metal required to protect the sheave with a proven journal bearing. So size for size, Element is priced significantly lower, than our previously least expensive blocks.
