Different layouts

  • X-CUT
  • 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.
    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.

  • Code Zero laminate with high-density fiber luff

Marin Cable-free Code Zero 65 % - CZ laminate with high density fiber luff

The cable-free code zero made in a trioptimal layout from a code zero laminate with a high-density fiber luff, that makes up for the cable. This is truly a sail that makes a difference especially in lower winds. The sail goes significantly deeper than a conventional code zero with cable, due to the positive luff.  And not to forget very easy to roll and use, perfect for single-hand and cruising.

    Can be used at angles from 120-170° TWA. Perfect together with our Spisock ( Snuffer) for easy and safe handling.

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

    Heavy Spinnaker

    The heavy Cruising Spinnaker is like the light spinnaker. Can however be used in more wind.

    Can be used at angles from 115-175° TWA. Perfect together with our Spisock (Snuffer) for easy and safe handling.

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


    The Cruising Gennaker is close to the A2 but with less roach in luff and leech, to make the sail more stable (easy sailing).

    Can be used at angles from 130-165° TWA. Perfect together with our Spisock (Snuffer) for easy and safe handling.

    TWA: 130-165°
    TWS: 4-24 kn
  • Furlstrøm XL

    Furlstrøm XL

    The Furlstrøm XL is a Gennaker that furl s around a loose anti-torsion cable. It furls from the top and down.

    It can be used at the same angles as the cruising gennaker 130-165° TWA. It has a smaller head angle for better furling.

    TWA: 130-165°
    TWS: 10-24 kn
  • Blue Water Runner

    Blue Water Runner

    The Blue Water Runner is a twin furling downwind sail, which is easy to furl away from the safety of the cockpit. The sail is a 3-in-1 solution, working not only as a twin furling downwind-runner, but also as an ultra-light genoa and a reacher.

    In downwind mode the sail can be used at angles from TWA 140-180° and in reaching mode in TWA 60-135°.

    Please note that you are not able to colour this sail – contact your local Elvstrøm Sails dealer for more info on this sail.

    TWA downwind: 140-180°
    TWA reaching: 60-135

Simply select boat size, sail purpose and sail type and you are all set to colour your own symmetric or assymetric downwind sail! Once you are done and happy with the result save it by sending the layout by e-mail or request a quote. The number of panels varies according to the size of your sail and the colours in your computer layout may may differ slightly from the "real life" spinnaker colours.
