DOUBLE-CARBON-STRINGER Keeping core stability.
In order to get more stability and reduce stretching of the main profile below the boom, which we refer to as the sail’s core, we use 2 diagonal positioned stabilizers.
These two GT14 Carbon yarns are stitched in between the two main diagonals and improve stability in high wind, or when the sail is under heavy load during moves and/or landings. When exposed to less stretch you can imagine your sail will simply last longer, less material fatigue. Another advantage of the DCS is visible in the savings on the number of sail battens, we use no more than 4 and 5 where others choose 5, 6 and even 7 to achieve the same foil stability!
RIP-STOP-SLEEVE Mast sleeve tear prevention.
Mast sleeves have to endure a lot from countless mast insertions to mast breakage and washing on the rocks.
We know each sail is as strong as its weakest point so we use a heavy duty mast sleeve material with a rip-stop weave to prevent further tearing after being punctured. We use the same sleeve material throughout our entire range. Now why should your big sail be weaker than your small wave sail? Saving 50 grams won’t make a big difference, a strong mast sleeve does!
6-FINGER-CLEW The strongest clew-eye ever!
No chance of ripping out this clew-eye after a monster jump or gnarly washing.
The marine quality stainless steel Bainbridge® O-ring is held in place by as many as 6 finger strips sewn onto the clew of the sail. Built to last!
