All-Purpose | 2017 North Americans!The XCS-1 main is an all-purpose sail for all conditions. The traditional cross cut panel layout allows the rig to be set quite loose in light air, to maximize headstay sag, power and pointing ability. It also easily accommodates the increase in rig tension and backstay needed to depower in big breeze. The cross cut construction allows the sail to better match your mast bend when the backstay is on hard. This balanced design has proven to have a very wide groove, making it easier to maintain maximum speed over a range of conditions.Standard FeaturesLuff curve and camber designed for carbon fiber mastOne gaff battenTwo full length battenTwo leech battensLoose footVision and spreader windowsRadial teardrop patchesSpreader chafe patchTrim stripesLeech tell talesClass insigniaAdjustable leech and foot cordsRoll bagOptionalJ/70 mainsail reefSlugs on luffExtra set of J/70 mainsail battens
