As the inventors of the revolutionary Stratis membrane technology, Doyle Sails are at it again with another badass breakthrough in sail technology. The Doyle team have launched a product known as the Cable-less Code Zero sail in which an uninterrupted lens of uni-directional fibres designed in the luff of the sail takes the load from the tack all the way to the head. This advancement will give the ability to ease the tack up effortlessly and get more luff projection for deeper angles – more range, lighter weight and less total cost.
The secret behind the concept is that the load is taken along the sails natural load path instead of requiring the many tons of cable tension to try and keep the luff tight. In the cable-less code zero the luff is pushed to windward creating a far straighter luff for a fraction of the load, eating up crazy rule required mid-girth and allowing the luff to be eased and flown for deeper angles. When it comes time to furl the sail away the band of ‘unis’ down the luff allows for a quick and easy ‘bottom up’ furl.
Perfect application for the racing and cruising market as it alleviates the hassle of torsion cables. The kind of ‘no strings attached’ relationship every sailor wishes they were in…
