2010 Ghost XT
Side-shore light-weight wave sail
For 2010, MauiSails introduces a specialty, ultra-light, Technora wave sail called the GHOST XT. The name says it all. The GHOST XT provides surreal, barely there, lightweight handling, together with good power for low wind wave sessions.
Co-Sail Designer Art Szpunar had these comments about the new and exciting design:
"After using the Technora scrim in our XT series race sails for the past two seasons and noticing the material's excellent combination of ultra-light weight and good durability, we couldn’t resist making some wave protos. I ended up using a 5.3 GHOST XT proto for countless big wave, light wind sessions this last winter and fell in love with the sail.
The GHOST XT will be the perfect sail for those days with smooth surf, and for all sailors looking for that extra edge while wave sailing. It will be available in sizes 5.0, 5.3, 5.7, 6.1 and 6.7".
What is Technora
Technora is a very strong and light para-aramid fiber. Its tensile strength to weight ratio is 3x greater than that of fiberglass, polyester or nylon yarns which are other common fibres used in laminate sail cloth. Technora also has excellent fatigue resistance which means that it holds up very well to repeated loading, flexing, abrasion and UV. The Technora laminate cloth used in the GHOST XT provides the ultimate in light weight and stability with good durability.
