LUFF CURVE CONCEPT

We are always looking for more power and better handling … and the redesigned luff curves combined with the shaping points in the sails give us that unbelievable feeling! The sails have more power and don’t get heavy in the hands. We released some tension from the head to redesign the twist character, making it easier to open in the gusts while the lower leech remains relatively open.Pushing the shape more forward towards the luff was our main goal. Generally the luff curve becomes more round in the bottom and straighter in the top, to push more material in the sail near the mast and in the lower half to enable more twist up top. The amount of curve changes from sail to sail, but the overall concept remains the same. We extended the use of the DACRON LUFF PANEL to more sails in our range, taking advantage of its added smoothness and soft character.
