Ullman Sails FiberPath Sails is our premium racing product. Designed to the highest standards, specifically for competition and pro sailors, the sails are built to be lightweight, low stretch and strong, giving you superior performance and speed on the racecourse. Every FiberPath sail is custom-designed and lightweight. Our designers lay out the path of the fibers to perfectly align with the expected loads of the sail, accounting for differences in fiber characteristics such as stretch and durability.
FiberPath Grand Prix
Due to the exceptional load management characteristics of these sails they have the greatest shape holding abilities available. These features combine to make the sails the fastest on the water.
These custom membrane sails are built to be lightweight, low stretch, and like FiberPath Grand Prix, have the option of an additional light, rugged ‘skin’ (distinct from Taffetas) that increases racing life with minimal weight gain.
These sails utilize the same technology as our Grand Prix and Regatta products. Featuring aramid or polyester, FiberPath Sport offers racers some performance advantages of a FiberPath Grand Prix or Regatta custom membrane at a more competitive price.
Fiber Selection and Performance
All FiberPath sails are designed by the Ullman Sails Design Team and built at our state-of-the-art lamination plant. Through a high-pressure, high-heat lamination process we have developed a stronger and more durable laminate than other membranes on the market. Your Ullman Sails consultant can help you determine the blend of fibers that best match your performance needs.
