Features & Benefits
Blade mast-pocket construction features mast panel and 2 mil triax xply mast-pocket sides (3 layers) that are tensioned directly (all 3 layers under tack pulley webbings)– therefore downhaul tension is equalized between the mast panel and the mast pocket resulting in the Racing Blade’s firm, clean, easy-rotating leading edge Internal vertical and horizontal Kevlar strip applications at cams– defines profile and augments stability Tubed battens with varying carbon content at spoecific locations. The upper three battens are unique 100% carbon tubes ultra light and stiff to to maximize performance for the upper end Unique Sdm and Rdm mast compatibility. Tekcam2 Large (installed) and Reduced (in sailbag) included with size 8.6 and down Metallic cam interfaces– MCIs eliminate contact point degradation characteristic of cam designs without MCIs Xply batten pockets that alternate sail sides... using similar material for the batten pocket as the body material minimizes the asymmetric character of applied batten pockets. Pockets made with laminates allow the batten to be centered. These features combine to maintain rotation symmetry. In contrast, same-side dacron pockets promote assymetrical rotation Streamlined neoprene boom cutout with dual zippers– limits water entry into the mast sleeve, keeping the rig light for fast recoveries Tekcam2 camber inducer design- easy rotation and gentle to your mast 7 mil monofilm upper mast panel (inside mast-pocket)– augmented profile stability 4 mil Dimension Polyant laminated monofilm body panels– proven superior performance
