Different layouts

  • X-CUT
  • TRIOPT
  • EPEX
  • X-CUT
    A cross-cut sail (x-cut) consists of a number of horizontal panels parallel to each other and perpendicular to the leech. This is a very cost-effective way of producing a sail, making it affordable and long-lasting. Being the first sail-design on the market, the x-cut sail has a long and proven track-record.
    Cross-cut sails are typically made from a woven polyester cloth with straight fill yarns that are stronger than the warp yarns. The strong fill yarns are aligned with the load bearing direction of the sail resulting in a very durable sail.
  • TRIOPT
    Trioptimal layout is also referred to as radial, since the panels are radial typically oriented towards the corners of the sail resulting in a triangular shape. This layout distributes the forces the sail is exposed to optimally and helps maintain the shape of the sail. The panels that make up the radial layout are carefully arranged to follow the load pattern, ensuring a strong and stable sail.
    Upwind sails in a trioptimal layout are typically made from a laminate cloth, that is a sandwich cloth constructed of more layers. However, you will find a few trioptimal designs in a woven polyester cloth, and most nylon downwind sails are designed in a trioptimal cut.
  • EPEX
    The unique and patented EPEX membrane technology is the flagship of Elvstrøm Sails. A 100 % custom design where every single yarn is placed according to a load path design, computer calculated to the individual sailing preference. This enables the absolute optimal distribution of fibers over the entire sail resulting in an outstanding shape stability and performance.
    A broad range of materials and fibers are available to meet every need. The components are bonded under extreme and constant vacuum that evacuates all air, holds the membrane in place, and compresses the membrane components.

Blue Water Runner - Woven Polyester

The Blue Water Runner (BWR) is a downwind sail that has been designed for easy and safe handling. The BWR is a symmetric twin sail with furling cable. The sail can be furled from the cockpit and is therefore very suitable for short-handed sailing and cruising in wind angles of 135-180 AWA. The sail is easily hoisted on the bow sprit and left after furling. The Blue Water Runner can also be used two-plied as reacher in light-medium wind.

    Den lette Cruising spiler, er en all-round spiler med mindre kappe i agter- og underlig, for at gore sejlet mere stabilt og let at håndtere. Den lette cruising spiler bruges ved vindvinkler på 120-170° TWA. Sejlet er perfekt sammen med vores Elvstrøm spilersok, for nem og sikker håndtering.

    TWA: 120-170°
    TWS: 4-24 kn
  • Heavy Spinnaker

    Heavy Spinnaker

    Den kraftigere cruising spiler, er designet som den lette cruising spiler, men kan benyttes i højere vindstyrker, typisk i vindvinkler fra 115-175° TWA. Spileren er perfekt sammen med vores Elvstrøm spilersok, for nem og sikker håndtering.

    TWA: 115-175°
    TWS: 15-32 kn
  • Furlstrøm

    Furlstrøm

    Furlstrøm er sandsynligvis det lettest håndterbare medvindsejl, du nogensinde vil stifte bekendtskab med. Såvel opsætning, udrulning som indrulning er ekstremt let at håndtere, på grund af det indbyggede anti-torsions kabel i forliget.

    Sejlet er designet til at give ekstra power, når du sejler vindvinkler hvor fokken ikke længere er effektiv. Furlstrøm benyttes i lettere vindvinkler fra 70° TWA. Når det blæser lidt mere, kan du gå så dybt som 140° TWA med en Furlstrøm.

    TWA: 70-140°
    TWS: 5-25 kn
  • Furlstrøm XL

    Furlstrøm XL

    Furlstrøm XL er en gennaker der rulles rundt om et løst anti-torsions kabel. Det ruller fra toppen og ned. Furlstrøm XL kan benyttes på de samme vindvinkler, som en cruising gennaker, 130-165° TWA.

    Sejlet er designet lidt smallere I toppen således, at det kan rulles lettere ind.

    TWA: 130-165°
    TWS: 10-24 kn
  • Gennaker

    Gennaker

    Cruising gennakeren ligger designmæssigt meget tæt op ad en A2 racing spiler, men med mindre kappe i agter- og forlig, for at gøre sejlet mere stabilt og let at håndtere.

    Benyttes typisk ved vindvinkler på 130-165° TWA. Sejlet fungerer perfekt sammen med vores Elvstrøm Spilersok, for nem og sikker håndtering.

    TWA: 130-165°
    TWS: 4-24 kn
