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.

EMS Fatfurl Main - Double Taffeta, Vectran/Technora

The FatFurl only available at Elvstrøm is specially designed with optimum shape and maximum sail area for all modern High-Performance Cruisers. The Fatfurl is larger than conventional horizontally battened mainsails. The continuous vertical battens with carbon top provide maximum support for the leech, whether the sail is fully deployed or reefed. The full battens are also to be used as reefing points, stretching the reefed luff and making the sail flat and efficient. The short intermediate battens have the same function. The EPEX layout ensures an optimum fiber distribution and a strong and stable sail. We will together with you find the best solution regarding type of fibers and surface. Optional integrated batten pockets are symmetric and ensures optimally airflow over the sail.

Material

Taffeta used as an outside layer on both sides adds strength and durability to the sail. It improves resistance against UV, tear, flex and chafe. Taffeta is available in light and heavy and in grey and white. The Vectran/Technora fiber combination is the most popular fiber combination for the cruising sailor both high performing and durable.Taffeta used as an outside layer on both sides adds strength and durability to the sail.
