TR-X - 2014 MauiSails race sail
11th October 2013

We are excited to present the 10th edition of our TR race sail series. The path to the TR-X has been one of progressive evolution, a few revolutions, meticulous attention to detail and relentless testing. The result of these iterations is our fastest and most stable to date. For TR-X we addressed all aspects of performance including profile shaping, tension, new materials, panel layouts and mast performance improvement.

TR-X - 2014 MauiSails race sail

The TR-X combines the best features of last year’s monofilm and XT versions into one line that beats them both. By carefully examining the skin tension throughout the sail body we have located the stable and crisp feeling monofilm in the deepest profile and highest tension areas of the sail. Separated by a seam that follows the load line of the sail, we have built the leech and upper sail body out of our new lightweight metallized scrim laminate. The result is the loose, twisting portion of the sail is much lighter, quieter, and more efficient in the wind, breathing and responding perfectly with each gust while the profile area is locked solid and stable. On the water the combination simply provides a seamless feel of perfectly balanced power and endless speed and acceleration.

Luff curve and shaping have been refined along with mast improvements to provide a more solid and stable lower profile together with an incredibly efficient leech twist progression. Acceleration is more rapid but the sails also feel lighter in the hands with better balance in gusty conditions. Slightly more tension, especially in larger sizes helps the sails stay composed and stable. Sizing of larger sails has been adjusted based on Micah’s preferences and there are now new 7.7 and 9.3 sizes.

Of course the backbone to a high performance rig is the mast and we have made a great effort, working with our manufacturer to improve bend, consistency and durability. The new SRS Race 100K masts have a Kevlar outer layer in the lower section to protect against point loading and wear at the boom and cam areas.

This year the Team Race sail shines stronger than ever, masterfully forged into the ultimate race weapon.
