2 Cam Freerace

Clear

Description

The V8 is a freerace sail that offers incredible acceleration with each gust as well as from non-planing conditions. True race sail performance combined with a narrower sleeve adding better water drainage. 7 battens and twin Integracams to achieve great handling and light feel. Extreme early planning, soft rotation, easier jibing, wide wind range, great upwind and top end control, the V8 has the extra power and drive needed to accelerate and go fast on high performance boards. The sail configuration makes it considerably lighter in maneuvers, less physical and easier to downhaul than pure race sails.

Slalom for everyone.


Key Features

  • Custom laminated clew for optimized strength and load distribution. It features internally laminated Kevlar stripes that distribute the loads in the Clew area.
  • Deep profile in lower body section for controllable power combined with very smooth leech release and open head twist for acceleration and control in the gusts.
  • Moderate sleeve width combining stability and aerodynamic benefits of wide sleeve racing sails with improved handling and reduced weight.
  • Twin Cam design uses cams in a critical place to support the deepest profile in the boom area without sacrificing rotation.
  • Fully tubular middle and upper sail section reduces the weight and provides optimum profile stability; only foot batten does not use tube in order not to compromise durability in this vulnerable area.

Sail Shaping

Sail shaping balances the speed and power of a sail with control and handling. Shaping lower down in the sail will produce a little less power but increases maneuverability. Shaping higher up in the sail creates more drive and low-end power.In the performance oriented sails this extra power is easy to control due to the profile stability supported by cams and tube-battens. In the maneuver and wave oriented sails, low shaping distribution provides uncompromised maneuverability.
