The Racingblade is Loftsails’ dedicated slalom racing sail. On the competition circuit since 2012, the design is developed with attention to blistering acceleration and top speed.
Efficient and stable profiles, a relatively free leech, and wide ultra-low drag mast pockets are designed into the Racingblade. Wide mast pockets require firm tension for smooth airflow efficiency. The Racingblade mast pocket construction is unique: all 3 layers - the mast panel and the two mast pocket sides - are tensioned by the tack pulley webbings.
This construction - first developed by Loftsails - equalizes mast panel and mast pocket loading. which is key to achieving the Racingblades’ firm, clean, easy-rotating leading edge.
