Fathead - Double Taffeta, Vectran/Technora
The EPEX layout, with optimum fiber distribution allows us to build a stable and efficient Square Top. An optimum designed square head provides easy trimming and control. When the wind increases, the top of the sail will twist, and the result is a flatter sail. In light wind the extra area gives the boat more power. The square head mainsail has full battens, which in addition to making the sail stable when sailing also makes the sail pack itself when lowering it in to your zippack. The double taffeta layer protects the sail from chafe, wear and tear and additionally it protects the fibers from UV degrading. We will together with you find the best solution regarding type of fibers and surface combinations.
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.
