Description

CRUISING TRI-RADIAL TR 2600 Series 2600 utilizes tri-radial construction with pre-made polyester composite materials. Large, unwoven polyester fibers (scrim) are sandwiched between exterior layers of woven polyester (taffeta). A polyester film provides off threadline (bias) stability. BOAT SIZE 55' and under MATERIAL Polyester composites with taffeta exterior skins COST TRI-RADIAL SAIL CONSTRUCTION Tri-radial sails utilize panels of pre-made materials radiating from the three corners of the sail. The long, or “warp”, fibers of the material are oriented to align with the primary load paths. Better alignment creates lower stretch improving shape holding. Tri-radials provide a performance upgrade for those who are looking for more than what a classic woven polyester sail can provide. Designed for Maximum Control When it comes to boat handling and sailing enjoyment, it’s sail shape that makes the difference. Sail shapes are custom-designed for your boat by Quantum’s experienced sail designers based on expected usage and boat-specific constraints such as mast bend, displacement and righting moment. Sail shapes feature a smooth, flat aerodynamic profile for optimum upwind performance, with an open trailing edge to reduce heeling and weather helm. The shape allows sailing into a higher range of wind conditions before reefing becomes necessary. The Right Materials There is a broad spectrum of material options ranging from simple woven materials, to custom composites and they are available from a variety of suppliers. In general, there are four categories:
