Lots of experience in design
There are countless different combinations of materials, material strength, sail cutting, sail size and production techniques. Finding the ideal combination requires many years of experience and comprehensive know-how.
With more than 60 years ofdevelopment experience, Elvstrøm Sails has acquired more specific knowledge than any other sailmaker in the world. You can therefore be assured that you will get your ideal wing from us!
We use only the best materials for our sails. Modern fibers and traditional yarns such as kevlar, carbon, dyneema, nylon, polyester, technora, vectran, dacron.
But our most innovative technology is called Epex, a high-performance membrane that is based on clear vision. A vision to design and produce a sail that outperforms conventional sails in terms of durability and performance. Epex was established in 2008 and as the first and only one of its kind in the market. Since then, products and processes have been further developed to what is now the most advanced technology.
After many years of development Elvstrøm Sails has succeeded in perfecting the process of producing high-quality sail membranes. Epex sail membranes are held in place over the entire surface throughout the process by means of a vacuum. In this way, a 100% homogeneous sail laminate is produced.
With several Elvstrøm SailPoints scattered throughout the European continent, you will find qualified Elvstrøm Sail personnel at major ports. Our network is constantly evolving to ensure we stay within reach.
