UK Texas launched it's first Aramid Genoa in 2009 as soon the class approved it. Since the beginning we opted to use string sail technology. Utilizing all of our experience with the successful Pentex Tape-Drive genoa, we compensated for the stretch in the materials, and in 2011 we revised our designs with Mauricio Santa Cruz (three- time World Champion), and updated our tuning guide.
Our membrane loadpath construction, made of black aramid fibers, is designed as an all purpose sail. It is minimum class weight and easy to trim.
Material: Black Aramid loadpath yarns laminated inside two 3-D shaped Mylar skins.
