With our return rate being virtually non existent, we can guarantee all of our Epoxy and Epoxy Carbon sandwich flat stock battens against breakage for the life of your sail. Unfortunately because of the way they are constructed, this guarantee does not apply to any of our tube battens.

RBS Inc has been manufacturing battens for both the Windsurfing and Yachting Industry since 1985. In 1990 we quickly learned that the flexible Epoxy matrix and the pulform process was a superior process for this product. Our Epoxy battens have become the benchmark batten in the Windsurfing Industry and are quickly becoming the batten of choice in the Yachting Industry.

We take pride in saying that RBS is better than your BS.

CONSTRUCTION: Our battens are constructed using all undirectional 'E' fibers in a proprietary epoxy resin matrix. We use a unique rolltrusion process with a precise balance of glass to resin mixture which is monitered several times daily. This allows us to produce battens for optimum performance and durability. We produce superior battens that will take more punishment than any of our competitors.
For those who are looking for a stiffer version of our standard epoxy batten, we offer our Solid Carbon Bar batten.
