TECHNOLOGY

Severne Gator 2021 - crossover sail
pointer
EM3

EM3

eM3 is developed to combine the performance of the e-series cloths with maximum durability.

The use in the upper panels reduces not only the overall sail weight but also the swing weight, aiding manoeuvrability and control. Used in the BLADE and in the FREEK.

pointer
DOUBLE SEAMS

DOUBLE SEAMS

All Severne wave sails have 25mm double stitched window seams. The wider, single colour seam tape ensures maximum tear strength and crash resistance

pointer

BOOM HEIGHT REFERENCE

Boom height gauge for ease of reference.

pointer

3&4 ROLLER TACK PULLEY

Roller tack pulleys are matched to the sails downhaul requirements and aligned for friction free downhauling and threading ease. Rig your sails with the Severne Hardware Division extensions for function and simplicity.

pointer
THERMOFORMED TACK FAIRING

THERMOFORMED TACK FAIRING

Protects your board from impact and neatly covers the foot detailing. It incorporates the rope stash pocket for easy storage of your downhaul rope.

pointer
MOLDED SOFT EDGE

MOLDED SOFT EDGE

With recessed grooving, covering any vulnerable stitching the moulded soft edge encloses the hard edge long the foot of the sail and protects the stitching from wear along the board non-skid.

pointer
SPIDERFIBRE

SPIDERFIBRE

A web of fibreglass filament that disburses loads across seams and throughout the body of the sail. By using stronger, lighter fibres and reducing sail patching, we can measurably reduce weight and swing weigh and at the same time, increase strength.

pointer
EM4 HIGH LOAD LAMINATE

EM4 HIGH LOAD LAMINATE

Based on the proven eM3 platform, the high load eM4 material features twice the amount of X-Ply fibre and increased film thickness to maximise durability. This new material allows weight reduction whilst maintaining puncture resistance and tear strength. Used in the lower impact zone in the sail.

pointer

SEAMLESS FOOT CONSTRUCTION

A single panel in the foot area with hidden load patches and zero exposed stitching eliminates seam abrasion and seam creep in this high load area. Maximum durability and minimum weight.

WHERE CAN I ORDER SPARE PARTS OR MATERIALS TO REPAIR MY SAIL?

You can order repair material from your local dealer or distributor. Use the dealer locator to find your nearest SEVERNE dealer.

WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED MAST FOR SEVERNE SAILS?

All of our development, testing, rigging, and tuning are done using Severne masts. We don’t test the performance or bend curves of other masts, and can not guarantee which performance or durability you can get out of your sail using a different brand mast. Therefore, we strongly recommend our customers use SEVERNE masts.
