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.

Racing Main Sail - Woven Polyester, Dacron AP

Many class rules have limitations on allowed materials. Woven polyester is often the only allowed, and the cloths we are using for these sails are treated with high temperature during production and are very stable. Reefs are normally custom made to suit the rules for the class, normally these sails have one full batten and three short tapered battens for optimal trimming abilities and light weight.

Material

The woven polyester used for our MAESTRO segment is a high-quality cloth with improved stretch resistance.

Performance, durability and price indicators are illustrated for each material combination on a scale from 1-10, 10 being the highest.

  • Conventional Main - short battens
  • Conventional Main - full battens
  • Try Sail
  • Conventional Main - short battens

    Conventional Main - short battens

    Sail Type
    The conventional mainsail with short battens still has full top batten. Having shorter battens in the lower parts of the sail makes the trimming and depowering easier. Short battens also make the sail weigh less and is normally the preferred choice for racing.

    The sail can be delivered with slides or luff rope, reefs and all other necessary options, for instance: trim stripes, sail numbers, cunningham, over-head leech line, loose foot and sail bag.

    Layout
    Available in cross-cut, trioptimal and EPEX.

    When to use
    The conventional mainsail with short battens can be used in all weather conditions – upwind and downwind. For heavy wind conditions the sail area can be reduced by reefing.
  • Conventional Main - full battens

    Conventional Main - full battens

    Sail Type
    The horizontal full battens in the conventional mainsail help keep the shape of the sail, and when lowering the sail, it practically packs itself into the lazy jack or zippack. As the sail is easy to use and stable, it is a favorite sail for many cruisers.

    The sail can be delivered with slides or luff rope, reefs and all other necessary options, for instance: trim stripes, sail numbers, cunningham, over-head leech line, loose foot and sail bag

  • Try Sail

    Try Sail

    The trysail is your storm mainsail which is designed to give the boat balance when combined with a small headsail. It is a narrow no batten sail that will not affect the mast in any negative way and is also designed without the usage of the boom.

    Layout
    Available in cross-cut.
