< MX5 range of racing sails are available for racing sailboats up to 80 ft. MX5 racing sails can include a wide range of fiber content including Technora and Twaron. These sails are available as a film/film (racing) or with single or double layer taffeta for offshore and endurance racing.

Designer's Note
MX5 Twaron / Technora sail membrane only uses fibre reinforcement where it is required and not where it isn't! This keeps weight to an absolute minimum without compromising the performance and durability of the sail. Because weight has been kept to a minimum, it also means that some or all of the weight savings made where reinforcement is not needed can be used to add extra reinforcement to the high-load path areas of the sail. The fibre reinforcement added to the membrane is also a continuous directional filament, which accurately follows the load path lines of the sail. Zero-crimped yarns are a must to ensure consistent translation of the design.

MX5 Membrane Surface Types
