The Sable high-speed handpieces are available in two styles, the Access™ S4500KL mini head and the RotaMax™ S6500KL torque head. These fiber optic highspeed handpieces are designed to provide maximum air driven power with smaller head sizes for optimal comfort and visibility. Sable handpieces have a durable titanium finish and ceramic bearings that deliver vibration-free performance while running longer at a lower decibel level. The handpieces have a 25,000 LUX fiber-optic illumination, a triple water spray system and a push button chuck mechanism. Sable handpieces are KaVo-compatible and work with the existing power optic system via the MULTIflex-style coupler. Sable Access and RotaMax highspeed handpieces are backed by a one-year warranty. Thirteen consultants evaluated these handpieces with a six-hole, 360° KaVo Multiflex LUX type coupler in 712 uses. These highspeed handpieces received a 91% clinical rating.

The handpieces fit securely onto KaVo-style couplers for quick-connect convenience.
