North Sails E-Type 2017
The extremely versatile E_TYPE combines handling and rigging advantages of a NoCam sail with a very lively power delivery and top speed.
This sail really wants to get going quickly, maximizing the enjoyment of maneuvers and aiding seamless transitions. To generate maximum performance and propulsion during acceleration and planning, the new E_TYPE features the NO.COMPROMISE.DESIGN derived from the WARP development.
The new E_TYPE performs not only at top speed on in its higher wind range but also exceptionally well during acceleration and planing. This is thanks to the additional profile in the upper luff panel and the TT.TOP with active twist.
With the draft located well forward facilitating rig control it contributes significantly to the unusually high draft stability of this NoCam sail.
As well as the extra stiff tube battens (four in 6.2 and greater). Through the PROGRESSIVE.BATTEN.CONFIGURATION all E_TYPE sails have a size and range-specific batten amount. Sizes 4.0 to 5.8 come with 5 battens, up to 7.3 come with 6 and 7.8 and up feature 7 battens.
