NEW 3D MAST HEAD PROTECTOR
profiled hard plastic reinforcement to protect from abrasion the head of the mastsleeve. This part is always subject to chafing on
hard surfaces when you rig your sail.
BRAND NEW 3D MAST HEAD PROTECTOR
For maximum anti chafe and minimal weight. Manufactured from heat moulded EVA for best protection and less abrasion.
The optimized shape covers all mast elements to protect the deck of the board from impact damages. Use of closed cell foam to offer maximum shock-absorbing and minimal weight without water absorption.
NEW 2-PLY FACTS
In order to be able to reduce the weight of the sails we developed a completely new range of laminate materials, with a much thinner film supported by a double structure of fibers, a balanced scrim of fibers orientated in the warp and fill and a classic X-Ply angled series of fibers. From here the name 2-Ply. We created a complex woven web for highest durability with
super light weight. Beside the proofed X-Ply we use this new laminate in the upper sail body to achieve minimal swing weight and protection of critical areas.
• less weight: use of new material decreases overall sail weight by
• softer handling for better performance and comfort in gusts
• better strain value for perfect profile and shape on long term
• better UV resistance due thinner film
• used in crucial sail areas for best response, maneuverability and
minimal swing weight
RADIAL PANEL LAYOUT 2G
improved layout for perfect and lock in sail shape, smooth profile, twist control and durability. The 2nd Generation provides a full Radial Panel Layout from all 3 corners of the sail, the seams are aligned with the forces that originate from tack, clew and head and avoid deformations of the shape and design of the sail.
