  • Product Spotlight | Teleflex Xtreme Steering Cable

    Teleflex Marine, the leader in marine steering systems for recreational boats, has introduced its innovative Xtreme Steering System bringing a new level of smooth, effortless handling and precision control to an important class of boats. New for 2012, this advanced, American-built mechanical steering system will enhance the driving experience and operational control of a wide range of outboard powered boats - aluminum fishing boats, pontoons, flats skiffs, and more.

    A key to this new system's performance is Teleflex's Xtreme Steering Cable, based on technology pioneered for the company's revolutionary Xtreme Control Cables. This robust, high performance cable features splined ridges on the inner liner for minimal contact between the liner and core. This design allows the core to glide freely, for minimal lost motion and smoother, easier steering. The resulting reduction in cable friction not only improves performance, it keeps the entire steering system running smoother, longer.


    This new generation steering cable is matched with Teleflex's new Xtreme Steering Helm featuring a high efficiency, custom gear train and an improved No Feedback (NFB) clutch that minimizes the affects of engine torque. This new NFB clutch design allows for smoother clutch release each time the wheel is turned. This results in smooth and seamless steering in both directions and at all engine speeds. Models are available without NFB.

    Teleflex Xtreme Steering reduces the effort required to turn the wheel in boats with higher horsepower engines or hulls with large wetted surfaces. Teleflex's Xtreme Helm has the smallest available footprint, for easy installation on even the tightest helm stations. Because it uses the same mounting pattern and bracket location as current Teleflex steering systems, it is an ideal and affordable performance upgrade for the widest variety of boats. The helm incorporates a new Xtreme Bezel with updated styling to compliment any dash or console - or it can be used with Teleflex Sport or Sport Plus tilt mechanisms for boaters who prefer tilt steering.

    The new Teleflex Xtreme Steering will not only improve the driving experience of just about any boat, it is literally a snap to install. Teleflex's innovative Dual Quick Connect feature makes attaching the steering cable and spent travel tube to back of the helm a simple and fast operation.
