4T Cruising Technology


4T FORTE with Cruising Shields are proving to be one of the best, and most advanced, technologies on the market with unrivalled durability and shape retention.


The entire 4T skin is encapsulated between rip stop "shields", which are UV, moisture, and mildew resistant. The whole skin, with its continuous fibres, is vacuum cured in a heat activated cross polymerisation process, which fuses the components together so that every single element in the structure contributes to shape holding.


As a result, a 4T FORTE sail membrane not only exhibits superior structural integrity, but the use of more efficient components creates a sail up to 33% lighter than woven alternatives!
