Material: The material used for slalom sailing is sail material in combination with monofilm. These two materials are connected by gluing and stitching. The monofilm comes in handy to keep track of where your opponents are because it is transparent. The sail fabric gives the sail a lot of strength.

Cambers: The slalom sails often have cambers. The cambers ensure that the profile of the sail is optimized during the most severe circumstances. This allows you to achieve high speeds and the acceleration speed is unprecedented.

Battens: The battens in the slalom sails provide stability and reinforcement. Often there are 5 to 7 slats in a slalom sail that ensure a perfect balance between control and stability in the sail. Without battens your sail would collapse so they are very important.
