Quantum has been involved with the J/22 class since day one. We have put in endless hours of testing and refining our sails and rig tune to help you get the most out of your J/22. Today, our J/Boat division of designers and sailors works on all aspects of our program, continually injecting new ideas and thinking, so every day, we are moving forward. Quantum’s top J/22 race results include multiple world, North American, European and Midwinter championships.

J/22 Mainsails

J/22 Class Mainsail

The J/22 mainsail offers easy-to-adjust power controls as well as great performance in all conditions. This is our latest all-purpose mainsail designed to handle the big winds and deliver enough power to get you through the light wind and wavy conditions. Its cross-cut design and loose foot allows for deeper draft and great shape retention. Built with dimension polyant fabric, it's a low-cost, exceptional value mainsail that is fast, durable, flexible, and easy to manage.

INCLUDES: Loose foot, tapered fiberglass battens, draft stripes, sail numbers, visibility and spreader windows, insignia, class royalty, and roll bag.

J/22 Headsails

J/22 Class Jib

Quantum's jibs have evolved to become more user-friendly. With a deeper foot and a rounder entry, our jib has a wide groove and great acceleration out of tacks and off the starting line. We have found this sail to be a great performer in both flat and lumpy water. Jibs come complete with telltales, bronze jib hanks, visibility window, draft stripes, class royalty and roll bag.

J/22 Spinnakers

J/22 Spinnaker - AIRX 650

Quantum has long been the leader in spinnaker design technology. This is quite apparent in our J/22 spinnakers. We updated our horizontal profile to a more elliptical shape that gives the spinnaker maximum projected area while still being easy to fly. The strength of our tri-radial panels locks in the shape so your sail will stay fast longer. Airx 650 is the lightest cloth available that meets the class rules, and is now available colors shown. Spinnakers come complete with sail numbers and a fold bag. Price also includes class royalty.
