Simmer Blacktip 2013

Quick overview


Simmer Blacktip PRODUCT INFO
The Simmer Blacktip is an ultra light, soft and compact outline four batten wave sail, designed for ideal performance with multi-fin boards. Its low aspect ratio keeps the power where it easily can be controlled and two kevlar stretch control tendons secure the profile stability. Equipped with large panels of 2 MIL Q-ply for super light and smooth handling. Designed and developed by Tomas Persson in close collaboration with Klaas Voget, the Blacktip presents the best drive and maneuverability in our wave sail range.

Simmer Blacktip  KEY FEATURES
- A versatile wave sail which generates the speed, maneuverability and drive to get it on in the waves while still having the feather light feel you need in maneuvers. 
- A lower positioned o-ring to respond to a more upright sailing position, seen in multi-fin sailing. 
- Low end power for early planing, high cut foot combined with relatively short boom for maneuverbility.
- Superb ability to de-power in the critical moment of a maneuver and very forgiving handling characteristic.
- Wider sleeve for more front end drive

Simmer Blacktip  RIDER COMMENT
“ The main advantages with the new four batten Blacktip is that it is super light, so it is really maneuverable. It keeps the drive all the way through the turn, even if the wave doesn’t have a lot of push and if your timing is less than perfect, the Blacktip still gives you the maneuverability and power to adjust your moves. “ - Klaas Voget G-4
