2013 TR-9 XT

Light weight version of TR-9 race/slalom sail

For the racer who is looking at the lightest and potentially fastest TR-9, we are again offering a version using the well tested ODL04 Technora™ laminate.

A significant modification to the body panel layout of the TR-9 XT locates materials in a way that best combines the “crisp” feel of monofilm in the lower body with the light weight and softness of Technora™ in the upper sail body and leech. Test results of the new layout have shown significant advantage over previous constructions.

Each size is tested and developed individually and the final designs are chosen based on the best general performance characteristics of  increased range and top speed without compromising acceleration out of maneuvers. Tuning the luff curve and shaping relationships, and evaluating the stretch and orientation of sail body materials have been the means to achieving these goals.

By modifying the TR-9 wide luff by using additional ultra-light Technora™ in the upper half of the sleeve we have reduced stretch in that area and thus added more range and stability with more solid cam positioning, all without giving up the smooth tacking and jibing. There is also the added benefit of reducing weight in the top of the sail.

The outline geometries and aspect ratios have been adjusted on a size-by-size basis to ensure optimum balance and tension throughout the range by scientifically analyzing this with our custom load cell. This controlled level of change going from one sail to another gives us the magic balance of light handling and control in gusts, with sufficient tension for acceleration and forward drive.

For the ultimate in racing success, be sure and add at least one TR-9 XT to your quiver for 2013. We want this to be a year of competition that will leave all the real challenges up to you. Our excellent Maui based test team of Micah Buzianis and Phil McGain and the generous feedback from around the world has been instrumental in the day to day progression of MauiSails race sails. A word of caution though... the refinement found in the TR-9s may occasionally take your breath away.
