How much do you know about Future Fibres‘ world-renowned multi-strand carbon rigging products? AEROsix and ECsix?

AEROsix – Hybrid Carbon Rigging.

This technology is a novel rigging system developed with grand prix racing and high performance superyachts in mind. AEROsix is an aerofoil rigging setup comprised of a solid carbon plate that is bonded inside bundles of multi-strand carbon rods. This means performance, robustness, minimum windage and no vibration!

By combining both our solid carbon and multi-strand technology into one fluid product, we have achieved a cutting edge game changer that is both safe and very fast – a product unmatched by our competitors.

ECsix – Multi-strand Carbon Rigging

ECsix is the world’s preferred carbon rigging package. With proven and patented multi-strand technology it is also the most durable lightweight composite rigging on the planet.

ECsix pioneered the way forward for multi-strand technology, the same that is used in the hybrid AEROsix product. The carbon rod bundles allow ECsix to be extremely flexible permitting them to resist fractures from bending, compression as well as heavy impact.

ECsix and AEROsix have been tested at all levels of yachting from the The Ocean Race, SailGP , IMOCA Globe Series, 52 Super Series, Maxi72, Mini Maxis, AC45, Wally, Official J Class through to the world’s largest super yachts such as:

Aquijo, Anatta, Vertigo, Kokomo, Twizzle, Hetairos, Mari Cha III, Unfurled, Sarissa, Ohana, Inoui, My Song, Nikata, Liara, Odin, Ribelle, Missy and many many more…
