Composite Filament Membrane (CFM)
Our designers use state-of-the-art software that allows us to provide complex design solutions as:
• Numerical analysis
• Study of the forces
• Simulation to predict the physical behavior of the sails while sailing
• Sizing and verification of the structure of the composite material
• Stress test
The design of these membranes represents the most important phase for the successful construction of a CFM sail.
A sail built in CFM is significantly lighter with superior shape retention and lower weight.
The result of this equation is simple: less deformation + less weight = greater speed.
The Grand-Prix racing line is specifically designed for those who want the best for their racing boat. This range of sails is at the top of our production in terms of performance and lightness and the mainsails and headsails are exclusively made in carbon fibre membrane.
Competition and performance are man’s concerns. Beating one’s adversary is a reward that our clients know well thanks to our race sails. The Grand-Prix racing line is specifically designed for those who want the best for their racing boat. The mainsails and headsails are exclusively made in Aramid or aramid/carbon fibre membrane.

The new generation of laminate material has permitted the development of a high-tech line of sails developed primarily for skippers who wish to get sails that are easy to use and more durable.
