New generation of sails.

Efforts are not spread equally in a sail profile, that is the reason why we use Membrane technology : Digital fibre application according to the sail's forces: XXL resistance in the stress zones and 3-ton press applied for perfect and durable lamination.

Every Reverso is equipped with the  7m² (75 sq ft) Black Membrane sail. Membrane is the technology used in round-the-world sailing races like the Vendée Globe.

Introduced in mid-2019 on the Reverso, the Black Membrane has significantly increased the wind range, providing more power in light winds, and in stronger winds, it maintains a very stable profile, does not flap during maneuvers, and allows for smoother, faster sailing.

Carbon mast as standard

Carbon technology brings massive gains in responsiveness, righting moment and ease of masting.

This mast is also 100% drill-less. We use a very high bond processes to avoid drilling the mast and have an increased durability.

The Reverso's mast is built in 4 parts of 140cm each. They are interlocking, with a carbon connection sleeve. The total weight of the mast is 6.5 lb (2.95 kgs).

Composite sandwich construction

We chose a composite "sandwich" structure with a Soric® honeycomb core.

During the draping stage of the fiber, a core material (Soric®) is incorporated, allowing for improved resin flow, and increased wall thickness, greatly increasing inertia and stiffness. A stiffer boat transmits the energy of the rig better, is more responsive, faster and more efficient.

The choice of the vacuum infusion construction allows a very high repeatability and presents the best strength/weight compromise. It is also more respectful of the environment and of the operators of the production team.

Folding hull.
The Reverso Air is rigid and portable.

The Reverso Air is the world's best performing compact dinghy. Its hull can be disassembled without tools in an instant to solve all the usual transport and storage problems.

You can now go on a weekend trip with your boat ... in the trunk of your car.

Dimensions :
Transport mode : 4’7" x 3’ x 2’4" - (145x92 cm h=72cm)
Storage mode (photo) : 4'7" x 2'4 x 3' - (145x72 h=92cm)

Lever locks: military grade.

These 316L stainless steel lever locks are used by the French army in operations. They are used to assemble the Reverso hull and ensure the "top" locking.

There are 2 per hull section, and only one of them can withstand more than 600kg of traction.

Tension Dynamics® : absolute rigidity

This pre-tensioning device is the secret of the Reverso Air's rigidity.

It consists of two Dyneema® straps tensioned by two cascade hoists. These straps connect the fore and aft sides of the boat to ensure the cohesion of the whole.

The system is oversized, and each Tension Dynamics® is built exclusively by David, our technical director.

The tensioning is done with one hand on the hoist (blue rope) and is multiplied by 14. Thus, a 2x660 lb (2x300kgs) compression force is applied for an absolute rigidity.

Reverso Cockpit.
Instant speed display

The XXL digital display allows you to validate and test settings and get instant feedback, to become a better trimmer and a better sailor.

It also records the day's Vmax so you can challenge your friends, measure your progress or challenge other sailors in the Reverso community
Each Reverso has a dedicated space in the cockpit to receive the speedo. it's available as an option except on the Reverso match where it is standard equipment.
