// SIMMER COMPETITION RACE //
SX SUPERTUBE batten is a revolutionary development which creates a more precise controlled sail profile and radically improves the sail dynamics. Designed with the same technique as our top performing SX masts. The SX Supertube batten is designed to create the perfect harmonic curve. The progressive material lay up of the batten controls the stiffness throughout the curve, starting with a softer fiberglass rod in the front, leading into a fiberglass tube then gradually shifting into 50% carbon then a 100% carbon tubing in the back. With the SX SUPERTUBE batten we can lock the center of effort further back without loosing control over the stability.
VERTICAL SHAPING LUFF PANEL // Distributes the load inside of the cutline into a larger area of the sail when more downhaul is added, increasing durability and reducing stretch in this critical area of the sail. Adds stability and locks in the center of effort in the sail.
REDUCED WEIGHT // Reduced weight on panel layout and battens.
SPEED SPECIFIC SIZES // 5.0 are 5.4 speed specific sizes featuring 8 battens.
INCREASED TWIST // Increased twist around batten 4 and 5 to create a lower centre of effort.
MONOFILM BATTEN POCKETS // Radically reduces the weight.
RDM COMPATIBLE // The smaller sizes of the SCR work with a SX10 RDM. The lower three cambers need to be replaced from camber ” Large” to Camber “Reduced”.
