Sailbattens are important

They hold design shape in the sail and they affect how a sail works. They can change a boats
upwind height and the rigs total power. Sailbattens can also diminish or extend – a sails range of peak performance.

You have got a new sail and you want to go fast...
So why put solid, low-tech, fibreglass rods or bars in your new sail?
Fiberfoam’s Composite construction techniques have been tried and tested over 30 years and our battens remain the first choice of today’s discerning sailor.

Fiberfoam's NEW profiles are custom designed for modern Rigs.

Our flat battens have less tendency to ‘S’ in the batten pocket and are more resistant to torque.

They develop less side-stay wear than round or ribbed profiles, and give a smoother overall sail shape than other profiles.

Our sailbattens are your fine tuning tool.

Furthermore, they are fast!
Be sure your Sailmaker gives the best – ask for FIBERFOAM Composite Sailbattens.
