Design Advantages

Race performance has been proven with extensive feedback over four years. A FlexiFurl batten is able to spring back to its custom tapered, designed flying shape to give a competitive edge.

Lightweight, high quality pre-preg glass and carbon are used to ensure optimum performance with little added weight.

Safety for your sails is ensured in the unlikely event of a FlexiFurl breaking, thanks to its design. Composite shells are encased in a tough webbing cover to protect the sail if broken.

Fast and efficient furling is made a reality with FlexiFurls. Large headsails can be furled to small diameters.

More Roach, FlexiFurls have a higher ability to take compression (when compared to airbattens) and can, therefore, support more roach.

“It has been a game changer switching to FlexiFurls. They have given us true race performance in our furling sails. Also, the service has been tops so happy all around.”
- Peter Holmberg

Tapered Options

There are two standard taper options that can be applied to any of the standard FlexiFurl battens.

66% Taper (T) - More camber before kinking

Mostly used for top battens in the deeper section of the sail where more camber is required before the batten kinks.

25% Taper (TS) - Suitable for small cables

Mostly used in leech applications when the batten is close to the luff or furling around a small cable.

Our sales team can help you specify the most suitable FlexiFurls for your application.

Furling around head Foils/Cables

There are a number of factors that come into play when furling FlexiFurls around a head foil or cable. As a general guide:

50mm FlexiFurl range

Approx furl diameter: 40mm

75mm FlexiFurl range

Approx furl diameter: 80mm

95mm FlexiFurl range

Approx furl diameter: 100mm

Full length top battens

Careful considerations need to be taken when specifying these battens. If the sail has too much camber the batten will ‘kink’ before full depth is reached. A custom taper is normally shaped into the batten to ensure the batten sets correctly. To do this we need the design depth % of the sail.

Customisation

We can customise standard FlexiFurls with non-standard lengths and tapered versions.
