Intelligent Sail Design by Quantum Sails
Quantum Sails has elevated the art and science of sail making to a new level, resulting in the fastest and most efficient sail shapes and structures possible. It’s called iQ Technology and simply stated, it’s the most intelligent design system in the industry for making membrane sails.
Whereas some companies rely on off-the-shelf tools, Quantum’s iQ Technology is a fully integrated, proprietary approach honed over 25 years by people with vast knowledge and expertise in sailing and the complexities of engineered structures. iQ Technology integrates state-of-the-art design and manufacturing methods along with on-the-water testing in a systematic process that ensures outstanding sail performance, consistency and repeatability.
Using computerized 3D modeling, complex mathematical computations, and virtual testing, Quantum designers begin by analyzing each element of a membrane sail’s aerodynamic performance and structural requirements. Precise construction specifications of the refined sail design are then transferred to the manufacturing team where sails are made using meticulous manufacturing procedures with tolerances measured in millimeters. At the most demanding levels of the sport, performance is further optimized through rigorous, on-the-water validation and refinement.
iQ Technology informs the making of every Quantum sail. Sailors who choose Quantum sails can take pride in knowing their sails are made using the same high standards and manufacturing methods developed for Quantum's high-end, Fusion M® sails used in the most demanding environments. Our investment in technology is driven by our ambition to create a better sailing experience for all customers, at every level of sailing.
