We like to do things a little bit differently at Cascadia 4x4. Our hawse fairlead is no exception! We drastically stepped away from the classic slot-shaped fairlead design offered by most manufacturers and created something innovative and interesting. The design is heavily influenced by the results of simulation studies conducted with the latest engineering software in order to achieve maximum strength. The fairlead is also stylistically matched to the "Flipster V2" but works just as well on its own. To top it off we decided to make it out of 6061 aluminum and give it the most durable aluminum finish known to humans - Type III hard anodizing.
CNC machined from USA sourced 6061 aluminum. At 1" thick this fairlead surpasses industry standards. Designed and simulation tested with the latest engineering software to produce the strongest fairlead shape possible. Each fairlead is hand finished to remove any imperfections left by the machining process. This ensures a smooth sliding surface for your synthetic winch line which in turn will make it last longer. We also machined a 1/8" radius fillet on the reverse side of the fairlead as a safety feature to prevent frayed lines. Type III "engineered hardcoat" anodized to MIL-A-8625F specifications. This is the strongest and most abrasion resistant finish available. 100% made in North America
