Freerace narrow sleeve 2-3 cam sail
In response to a number of requests to bring back our successful two and three cam narrow sleeve design range, MauiSails Blaze answers that and more.
A moderate clew cutaway and the latest shape tension relationships developed for the Titan GS are combined with a minimal conical sleeve. This makes a sail that rotates like an RAF and delivers racing performance perfect for fast free riding and Formula Experience racing. The desirable soft feel and easy maneuvering come from the even, smooth twist character, with only moderate downhaul required to achieve the correct setting.
Like the racing cousins, TR-8 and TR-8XT, the Blaze and Titan GS share family history. The lineage of both sails is carried through in the similar feel and excellent low end characteristics we aim for in this seven batten form. The best of the easy handling and softness is found in both sails, with the essential difference being the sleeve dimension and rigging style.
The graphic look exhibits the use of X-Ply materials in a striking recognizable pattern. Load focused attachments in the batten tensioner system maintain the trailing edge correctly tack to tack. Four tube/rod battens support general shape stability and light weight. The conical sleeve design never holds water and makes recovery and waterstarts easy.
Tough anti-chafe material protects the sleeve and tack area from damage. A deep cutout makes attaching the boom a breeze, especially when using the MauiSails™ custom boom head design. The integrated lightweight loop-on clew pulley adds a low friction solution to outhaul adjustment that is full race capable and easy to use.
The 2012 Blaze represents the ideal in easy handling Freerace characteristics, enjoyable power, and speed.
