The low friction, light weight and durability of the twin-groove Carbo Racing Foil is a winning combination! The engineered Carbo material used in the foils provides significant advances over the PVC materials common to other racing foils.
The Carbo Racing Foil material is very low friction making hoists, douses and sail changes faster. Its high strength provides dramatic improvement in resistance to line wear, especially when jibing asymmetrical spinnaker sheets. Impact resistance is increased—less damage from spinnaker poles, especially in cold weather. Heat has little effect on stiffness. The black color provides superior UV protection and is easy to see against a light sky, making the jib trimmer’s job easier.
Because the Carbo foil uncoils and straightens, installation is simple. Snapping the foil onto the stay is easy and can be done with the mast up.
