The TR-2016 is at the top of the podium when it comes to pumping onto a plane and feeling that perfect glide through the lulls, with the right amount of shape combined with minimum tension and progressive twist from the boom to the upper leech.
We have made refinements to our sail to better match the luft curves around ‘constant curve’ masts. We’ve improved upper twist sections by having better connection from the top 3 battens to the head , easier rotation by releasing the cam pressure slightly, and more “even” shaping from top to bottom. Having the perfect balance of tension, shape, batten tapers and luff curve all adds to the "quiet feel" our TR race sails each year.
Batten tapers have gotten plenty of attention this year to help deliver the best profile position and balance throughout the wind range. With a realignment of the batten tapers (vertical batten percentages) we are able to deliver a more consistent profile from top to bottom, which again adds to the smooth hands free feeling of all MauiSails.
