The Full Radial design is the most popular choice and strongest construction. The radial shaped panels fan out from the three corners Head, Clew and Tack and run throughout the sail. The Tri-Radial layout, which has horizontal panels in the middle, is eligible for smaller sails with lower loads. This construction is less expensive in production because it is easier to manufacture and cloth can be used more efficiently.
The benefit of both constructions is that the stress, which is radiating from Head, Clew and Tack into the sail, is along the seams instead of across them. The result is a strong sail and minimizes stretch and distortion. Furthermore the radial construction allows a more precise alignment of loads, while the number of panels enables the use of 3-D shaping and creating the optimum flying shape. In addition to the saildesign our excellent handcraft finish ensures precision shaped panels, strength, durability and performance.
