There are 8 different size kits available within this non - reversible range. We have set up a separate store category for these. Please check item title for size of cable provided as prices may vary.
Ultraflex® Non-reversible Planetary Gear Fast Connect Helms
These helms operate with 3.8 turns lock to lock and a stroke of 228mm. Their outstanding features are the no feedback
design that incorporates a patented Non-reversible mechanism, which eliminates continuous load on the operator
caused by propeller torque. These helms are suitable for larger outboards and sports boats. They use the M66 Ultraflex®
cable or a Seastar SSC62 style cable. There are two mounting options available, a 90° and a 20° bezel kit to allow for
angled and vertical dashboards.
The importance of a Non-reversible steering system for increased safety. The steering system of a boat is the mechanism that determines the
boat direction when the steering wheel is turned. If, for any reason, the driver does not hold the wheel, a situation of danger may occur caused
by a sudden change of direction of the boat due to external forces (waves, current, etc) or internal forces such as the rotation of the outboard
or stern drive engine originated by the way of rotation of the propeller. Engine torque usually generates a load on the steering system that
must be continually compensated for by the driver even when the boat is going straight. The additional effort by the driver to maintain a true
course can often cause fatigue. With Ultraflex® Non-reversible steering helms the load applied to the steering system is no longer a problem.
A special patented devise allows the helm shaft to lock until turned by the driver, maintaining the boat direction and neutralizing the feedback
loads on the steering cable. This mechanism is engaged when the driver is not turning the wheel and is automatically disengaged as soon as
the driver applies pressure on the wheel to change direction of the boat. The Ultraflex® Non-reversible mechanism designed for mechanical
steering systems makes driving a boat safer and easier.
