Performance
Sailing dinghy

I love it!! Very well balanced, responsive, and fast! Accelerates in the slightest puff of wind! I had my second sailing session today. There was a bit more breeze with gusts up to 12 - 15 kts. It was a blast. She is very stable on a reach and is fast to plan. Really a joy to sail. Thank you for designing this!

Technologies

Innovative and patented technologies, derived from architecture (Tension Dynamics®) and offshore racing

SAIL 
BLACK MEMBRANE

These sails are used in offshore races like the Vendée globe. They are the best choice for offshore sailors because they are lighter, more performant and more durable.

Introduced mid-2019 on reverso, the Black Membrane massively extended the boat's wind range, bringing even more power in light winds

In stronger winds, the black Membrane keeps a very stable profile, it doesn't flap during gusts or manoeuvers thus allows a faster sailing with more flow.

CARBON MAST

The carbon technology brings massive gains for boat responsiveness, righting moment (less heeling) and is much easier fo masting.

We innovated and all the deckware is connected to the mast without drills, for increased durability.

TENSION DYNAMICS®

This pre-tensioning patented system is Reverso's rigidity secret. it combines a lever locking system with two Dyneema® straps tensioned by 2 dedicated pulley system.
