ZIP WAKES vs TRIM TABS
- MORE EFFICIENT LIFT
Near full beam interceptor arrangements are much more efficient at making lift compared to trim tabs with narrow span.
- LESS DRAG
Zipwake’s interceptor blade extends between 30 to 60 mm, whereas trim tabs often project 150 mm or more reflecting substantial drag.
- 10 TIMES FASTER ACTUATION
Zipwake’s blade stroke takes 1.5 seconds, outperforming conventional trim tabs by a factor of 10.
- LESS WAKE
Interceptors provide more effective trim control creating less waves which directly leads to better fuel economy.
