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.
Fiberfoam’s Composite construction techniques have been tried and tested over 30 years.
Fiberfoam's Tapered 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.
Sailbattens are an important fine tuning tool - having the correct ratio of Luff stiffness to Leech stiffness plus the correct position of maximum draft .
