Streamlined "Universal" Tendon Quick Lock System - US Base Cup
Streamlined invented the tendon universal joint design from 1981 and it is the strongest joint of all. Their unique design has evolved, and has been refined over the years while every other company plays catch up using our unique design. Theirs still has the same basic original design, the overall size has increased and the materials have been upgraded. Further they have added a safety line to assure you can sail back even in the unlikely event of a tendon failure.
Since 2008 they machine the end caps from billet 6061 T-6 aluminum, anodize them hot red, and designed them to incorporate a true four line safety line. This design is not only safer, it keeps the universal closer together, were there a failure, it would be easier to sail in and virtually eliminates damage to the deck of your board.
