PREMIUM PANELED TECHNOLOGY

Product Info

Overview

QUALITY  /  VALUE  /  PERFORMANCE

Our Premium Paneled sails combine our high-tech custom materials with traditional sailmaking cut and sew techniques to deliver acknowledged performance across a range of price points.

CONTROL ZONE

The upper section of the sail defines the control characteristics of the sail.  To maximise the handling, we use the lightest materials in the main body, reducing weight and swing weight.  These are bordered by a heavier leech material for durability.

POWER ZONE

The mid section generates the sail’s power and dictates how easy the sail is to see through.  For 20I3 we use a Dacron luff panel.  The Dacron is softer and has increased stretch characteristics. This creates a more forward pulling profile as the sail inflates

IMPACT ZONE

Heavy duty materials are kept lower in the sail, the area traditionally prone to damage with knees and harness hooks.  Twisted fibres and stronger yarns are combined with thicker films for maximum durability.  This extra weight is kept low in the sail so it does not affect the swing weight and lightweight feel of your sail.
