Future Fibres is to supply its new AEROrazr rigging to all teams competing in the 36th America’s Cup.

The newly developed aerofoil shaped solid carbon rigging is created especially for elite grand prix racing.

With the America’s Cup using advanced and technically progressive yachts, the selection of AEROrazr acknowledges the commitment Future Fibres has made with its design innovations, said Sam Watson, CEO of Future Fibres and parent company Southern Spars.

“With the introduction of aerofoil profiles to our already successful RAZR rigging product we have taken another significant step in our high-performance rigging offering,” he said.

The AEROrazr rigging is pushing the boundaries of innovation added Martin McElwee, head of Emirates Team New Zealand rigging and will push the AC75s performance to its maximum.

Future Fibres’ solid carbon RAZR rigging was custom designed and supplied to all nine newly built TP52 boats currently competing in the 52 Super Series.
