Trogear was founded by Henry Dokonal, a lifelong sailor eager to share his innovative ideas with other mariners.
This disruptive bowsprit solutions came out in 2015 after a few years of research and development in California, USA.
The sprit features an A-frame design, allowing it to rotate up and down. This unique feature appeals to cruisers and racers alike, looking for a safe solution to manage the furling sails from the cockpit, without compromising on performance or incurring extra docking fees.
Our hinge mount installation and adjustable bobstay means you can adjust the sail luff tension from the cockpit, giving you ultimate control when open ocean sailing or rounding the race marks.
