Mainsail damper | Sail-fuse®


The Sail-fuse® Nodus Factory™ textile shock absorber is an innovative load fuse and mainsail damper. It is designed to protect your mainsail and rig in the event of an impromptu gybe or sudden gust of wind.

How it works:
The Sail-fuse® is made of extremely strong Dyneema® textile webbing. It incorporates an energy absorber that breaks when the load on the mainsail exceeds a certain threshold. This dissipates the impact energy and prevents major damage to your yacht.

The Sail-fuse® is easily installed between the boom and the mainsail hoist. It is designed for use on all types of sailboats, from small dinghies to large racing boats.

Data sheet


  • Body: 100% Dyneema
  • Overmolding: Polyolefin
  • Rope: 100% High-density polyethylene (HDPE)


  • High breaking strength: Dyneema® is 15 times stronger than steel at the same strength.
  • Low weight: The textile fuse is very light, which is important for sailboat performance.
  • UV resistance: Dyneema® and polyolefin are UV-resistant, which means they won't deteriorate when exposed to sunlight.
  • Low elasticity: Dyneema® has very low stretch, allowing precise control of the sail.
  • Hydrophobic: Dyneema® and polyolefin do not absorb water, making them ideal for use in damp environments.
