The new E_TYPE performs not only at peak performance but also exceptionally well during acceleration and planing. This is thanks to the additional profile in the upper luff panel and the TT. TOP with active twist. Thanks to the CUTAWAY.CLEW this sail doesn't require an unnecessarily long boom! With the draft located well forward this facilitates rig control and contributes significantly to the unusually high draft stability of this No Cam sail. As well as the extra stiff tube battens (four in 6.2 and greater). Through the PROGRESSIVE.BATTEN.CONFIGURATION all E_TYPE sails have a size and range-specific batten amount. Sizes 4.0 to 5.8 come with 5 battens, up to 6.6 come with 6 and 7.3 and up feature 7 battens.
