Your dream defines the sail we recommend. If you’re on a coastal cruise your sails must endure all types of weather conditions. Strength and durability of the sails is crucial and thus the sail is tailor-made with extra accessories and increased trimming options compared to the sails we recommend for the sailor who primarily goes day sailing. If you’re sailing off-shore or on a long-distance cruise, maybe even cross-Atlantic or around the world we design your sail with extra attention to the details, e.g. larger and stronger reinforcements, webbing in all rings, stainless rings on all sails, specially designed slides in the mainsail, extra stitching all over, wider seams, extra leech reinforcement, and robust UV-resistant thread.

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.
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.
