RACING TRI-RADIAL TR 1200
Series 1200 utilizes tri-radial construction with special warp-oriented woven polyester materials. Radial woven materials can be oriented to better align with sail loadings than in a traditional cross-cut configuration, providing a modest increase in ability to resist stretch with the proven reliability of woven construction.

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 results in 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 speed, it’s sail shape that makes the difference. To achieve the ideal shape, Quantum’s sail designers use proprietary computational tools, part of the iQ Technology® suite, to create custom shaping, tailored on a sail-by-sail basis to 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 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 three categories:
