Racing Upwind Sails

Racing Upwind Sails

It Is All About Shape

Quantum's racing sails are developed using the most technically advanced design, lamination, and shaping methods in the industry. Known as iQ Technology™, this integrated and proprietary process results in sail shapes that are fast, efficient, and infinitely repeatable.
 

 

ACHIEVING MAXIMUM CONTROL

Sail shape and minimizing stretch are the key variables in delivering optimum upwind performance and reducing heel and weather helm. These factors also extend a sail’s range. Quantum offers a full range of construction options for the racing sailor to help maximize shape and minimize stretch. Every upwind sail can be tailored to match boat size, budget, and demand for shape and shape life.

Cross Cut Woven Polyester

Woven sails rely on the proven performance and durability of traditional woven polyester (Dacron®). They are constructed of pre-made materials in a cross-cut panel configuration (oriented luff to leech). They continue to be the most popular and affordable type of construction for small to medium size racing boats, providing excellent balance between performance and durability.

Tri-Radial Sails

Tri-Radial sails take advantage of radiating panels of pre-made materials out of the three corners to better align the fabric thread line with sail loadings. The length, or “warp” fiber of the material, is oriented to align with the primary load path. Better alignment results in lower stretch improving shape holding. With multiple options for materials, the TR Series provides a performance upgrade compared to traditional woven polyester sails.
