The Benefits of HexaTraction for Competitive Sailing Teams and Boats

  1. Unrivaled grip and traction for sailing safety: HexaTraction's hexagonal modules provide exceptional grip and traction on your boat's surfaces, both inside and outside, reducing the risk of slips and falls in both wet and dry conditions. This enhanced safety feature is essential for competitive sailing teams, boat manufacturers, and boat owners that need reliable grip solutions.
  2. Lightweight design for optimal performance: HexaTraction's minimalistic design adds negligible weight to your boat, ensuring that sailing performance is not compromised. This is particularly important for competitive sailing teams and boat manufacturers where every ounce counts in terms of speed and maneuverability. Also thickness is below 500 microns once installed so you can think of it as unnoticeable grip solution. 
  3. Hassle-free installation and maintenance: The peel-and-stick application process of HexaTraction makes installation a breeze, without requiring any special tools. Its low-maintenance and easy-to-clean design allow sailing teams and boat owners to focus on perfecting their performance on the water, rather than worrying about their grip solution.
  4. Resistant to harsh marine conditions: HexaTraction is built to withstand the rigors of competitive sailing and harsh marine environments, being both UV and saltwater resistant. This ensures durability and long-lasting performance in even the most challenging environments.
  5. Customizable color options: HexaTraction is currently available in clear (transparent), black, white, and camo, but it can be manufactured in any color to match your boat's design or team colors. This flexibility allows you to maintain a cohesive and visually appealing appearance for your sailing team or boat.
