OneSD™ technology for sail data broadcast

Alongside the introduction of 4T FORTE™ sails, OneSails are the first sailmaker in the world to deliver sails with an electronic chip encapsulated in the membrane as standard.
The OneSD™ microchip will carry data which will help the end user and the OneSails network identify and monitor the sail over the course of its life. Simply place a suitable device next to the chip to read the recorded identifier and design data.

Currently is a tool used internally among the OneSails Lofts, but a PRO version of the OneSD™ chip will be introduced soon, providing important features for the owner. 
The possibilities will be many: real-time recording of sail activity when connected to onboard systems, measurement of hours of UV exposure or the number of turns and gybes made. Everything will be recorded with the goal of keeping track of usage and improving sail performance and ownership experience.
