CABLE-LESS TECHNOLOGY

Our exclusive Cableless technology is a revolutionary sailmaking application that eliminates the use of torsion cables – increasing the range in upwind and downwind angles, more luff projection and less weight.

Initially designed as a concept to redefine and test the boundaries of traditional cabled Code 0 sails, the Cableless Code 0 has now become one of the most sought after and recognisable applications in the industry - winning all over the world. The success of the Cableless Code 0 has enabled Doyle Sails to push the boundaries even further and this same tried and tested technology is now being applied to headsails and staysails.

The Cableless technology sees an uninterrupted lens of unidirectional fibres designed in the luff of the sail takes the load from the tack all the way to the head. The secret behind the concept is that the load is taken along the sails natural load path instead of requiring many tons of cable tension to try and keep the luff tight. In the Cableless Code 0 the luff is pushed to windward creating a far straighter luff for a fraction of the load and allows the luff to be eased and flown for deeper angles. When it comes time to furl the sail away the bands of unidirectional Carbon running down the luff allows for a quick and easy ‘bottom up’ furl.

Given Doyle’s past experience in engineering sails that are able to save weight and handle enormous loads, the Cableless Code Zero is a perfect extension of their resources to deliver an easy to handle, light weight product that has application for both grand-prix racing programs and cruisers alike where a versatile sails with a wide range will enable more time spent sailing. The combination of Doyle’s extensive design and engineering team with the unique ability in the Stratis production process to run long, uninterrupted carbon fibres has ushered in the last ground breaking improvement to both upwind and downwind sailing.

The lower loads required for cable-less sails means weight savings can be made in mast, rigging, bowsprit and deck systems. The loads can be up to 30% less than a cabled sail making sails lighter, easier to handle and set up with a v straight luff.

This is a product that has been under development since 2016, and has been tested at the highest level of the sport in the last year. The results of the yachts racing this this Cable-less technology have been impressive, including;

  • Momo, Maxi 72 – Winner 2017 Maxi World Championship
  • Bella Mente, Maxi 72 – Winner 2017 Carribean 600
  • Proteus, Maxi 72 – Winner 2017 Corfu Challenge Cup
  • Ran, Fast 40+ - Winner 2018 Lendy Cowes Week
