Our new generation of wave sail in the GUNSAILS range combines characteristics of the Transwave and the Peak. With 5 battens and a slightly deeper profile, the Horizon introduces itself as a Power Wave sail. This results in profile stability and drive with that bit extra in acceleration and planing power. The use of 3 mil square ply in the top makes the handling even better compared to it’s predecessor Transwave. The new, evenly opening leech construction guarantees a huge wind range and gives the Horizon immediate reactivity. With a flatter profile above the boom, the unique push can be combined with a reliable ON/OFF.
The smaller sizes, including 5.0, show distinct Radical Wave characteristics. With a more compact outline and a lower bending curve, the profile flattens and becomes slightly softer. This helps the sail to remain direct but still forgiving in order to be easily controllable in high winds.
The new Horizon is probably the most adaptable wave sail of the GUNSAILS era. With a clear wave and high wind focus in the small sizes, it becomes a powerful Power Wave sail starting from size 5.3. It brings exactly the characteristic which the respective wind strength demands. This ability increases the wind range and guarantees pure windsurfing pleasure, also outside the wave.

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - F.R.E.D.

F.R.E.D. will help you to fi nd the optimal luff trim for your sail. The mark is found in the upper sail window and serves as an orientation point to create the perfect luff tension (loose leech).


GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Top Guard

The large reinforcement at the sail top avoids abrasion and wearing out whilst rigging.


GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Vario Top

The top opening is enlarged for an easier mast insertion. The adjustment buckle is placed behind the mast; unnecessary webbing can be stowed in the top opening.


GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Mini Battens

Lightweight mini battens take control of the leech while twisting and avoid detrimental leech fl utter. In this way, the window fabrics are spared and the longevity of the sail is predefined.


GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Batten Guard

PVC tabs on the upper batten pockets prevent wearing out and abrasion whilst rigging.


GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Internal Trim Batten

The Internal Trim Batten system is completely integrated into the batten pocket and the battens can stay tensioned in the sail. The profi led end piece offers additional protection against abrasion.


GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Pocket Guard

A PVC braid, sewed on the bottom batten pocket, protects your sail from abrasion while uphauling and waterstarting.


GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Reduced Boom Length

The Reduced Boom Length design shortens the boom length. The handling is much easier and feels more compact. The sail control is signifi cantly improved. A shorter boom is generally stiffer and will assist in maintaining the sail stability and profile.


GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Offset Clew

The Wave sails are equipped with 2 clew eyelets which are set asymmetrically for individual tuning:

Upper eyelet for more power
Lower eyelet for more control


GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Trim Setting

The boom length is printed beside the clew. The mast lenght is patched on the mast protector.


GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Boom Position Control

The printed height scale at the boom opening helps you to easily remember your personal boom position.


GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Double Lock Seams

Double seams form the most stable connection between individual panels and different materials. They are used in stress zones as well as in areas of high tension and make your sail robust and durable.


GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Foot Guard

All seams in the significantly stressed foot area are protected by Dacron coverings. A PVC edging from foot to the first batten protects the leech edge against your board’s nonslip coating.


GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Comfort Pulley

The integrated triple pulley has large easy turning stainless brass rolls which greatly reduce the effort required for sail trimming. Also, if you prefer, the rolls are removable to allow the use of standard downhaul pulley hooks.


GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Sleeve Volumer

The GUNSAILS logo that is sewn on the sleeve keeps it open at the boom opening area like a clip and thus mast insertion is much easier.


GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Strap On

For very easy packing away and storage: Just roll the sail up and fix the elastic retainer.


GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Mesh Pocket

On the inside of the protector you will find a closable mesh pocket which can hold e.g. your downhaul surplus.


GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Mast Foot Protector

The large mast foot protector can be pulled back whilst rigging. The loop eases the initial pulling down of the sail. The uphaul can be comfortably inserted through an opening in the protector.


GUNSAILS | Sail Tech - Intelligent Material Assembly

The well designed combination of different materials allows weight savings without losing stability. By varying the stretch behaviour of the individual materials, we can precisely define each sail profile under pressure and guarantee you consistent sailing characteristics over the long term.


GUNSAILS | Sail Tech - Tension Frame

The Tension frame forms a functional unit with the smart clew construction. It is built from multidirectional x-ply and framed with insignia. Therefore it can resist maximum stress levels. The Tension frame receives the force from the clew and distributes the tension with the additional warp lines into the sail. The layout of the tension frame is designed to support the individual profile of every sail. Conclusively the tension frame improves the response of the sail and increases the profile stability. It also ensures long lasting sail characteristics and improves the overall durability of the sail.


GUNSAILS | Sail Tech - Double Lock Seams

Double Seams provide the most stable connection between panels or different materials. They find use in areas of high material tension and make your sail tough and durable.


GUNSAILS | Sail Tech - Smart Clew Construction

The Smart Clew Construction is based on the tension specific and precise alignment of different materials. The result is an extremely durable clew area without additional weight. Depending the sail the layout of the materials varies in order to suit the resulting tension lines in order to distribute the force from the clew, towards the Tension Frame into the sail. That helps to create more response, better profile stability and long lasting sail characteristics.


GUNSAILS | Sail Tech - Kevlar Stretch Control

Through the selected use of kevlar warp laminate, we are able to precisely define the stretch properties of every sail. This leads to more response and a long lasting and stable sail profile. The light and unidirectional kevlar threads show very low stretch, even under highest loads. They are individually positioned in each sail to suit its range of application, leading to long lasting performance and sail characteristics.


GUNSAILS | Sail Tech - Multidirectional X-Ply

Multidirectional X-Ply is used in high stress areas. The thread layout shows a higher density of polyester yarn, thus making the material more resistant than the regular X-Ply. The additional vertical thread direction allows the material to take more tension and force in the critical tension line.


GUNSAILS | Sail Tech - Square-Ply

The square ply is based on the same concept as X-ply material. However the threads are aligned in a 90 degree angle and the material offers a higher overall thread density. That allows us to reduce the thickness of the included monofilm to save weight, but ensure durability at the same time.


GUNSAILS | Sail Tech - X-Ply

X-PLY the all time classic of the reinforced laminates. It is light, stable and has a good transparency. Therefore it is used in the window area of the Wave-and Cross Over Sails. X-Ply also does withstand higher punctual stress. In case of a cut, the threads avoid further damage because they stop the cut from spreading through the window.

Windsurf UK 11-2018 / HORIZON 5.0 2019

GUNSAILS | Test reports Windsurf UK - Horizon 2019

OVERVIEW: The Horzion is new to the Gunsails line-up for 2019, said to combine charac-teristics of two of its predecessors — the Transwave and Peak. Classed as their `power wave' option, it possesses five battens through its nine-size range (3.7- 6.1m) and exclusively uses x-ply throughout its panels, bar the Dacron luff panel to cushion the power delivery. Rigged for test on a 100% Select RDM (although said to also be compatible with SDMs), it sets with a little more luff curve than most here, the lower two battens retaining good rotation around the mast. Tuning is made simple by referring to FRED (standing for Fast Rigging Easy Doing) — Gunsails's visual trimming guide located in the upper panel. Downhaul until the looseness reaches FRED, before Eine-tuning using the two clew eyelets — the top one for power or the bottom for control. What could be simpler? In doing so, the leech falls away down to the batten above the boom, whilst the profile displays a moderate amount of shape forward in the draft. Detailing on the Horizon is functional, with many of the features you'd expect of a modern sail, such as a mesh pocket integrated into the tack fairing, a strap to hold the rolled sail together, and a multitude of guards and abrasion pads to reduce wear. Some of the very latest developments in sail design aren't present in the Horizon. For example, the batten pockets alternate from side to side rather than being integrated into the sail's panels. But then with retail price significantly under any of its rivals, you can't have it all your own way! The Gunsails pro rider team boasts some notable names amongst their ranks, so we were intrigued to use a sail from the Gunsails loft for the first time.

PERFORMANCE: Using the upper clew eyelet, the Horizon feels larger than its quoted area in marginal winds and creates a good deal of bottom end grunt, the centre of ef-fort low and forwards in the draft. There's a lot of movement in the luff sleeve, which coupled with the Dacron luff panel enables the sail's profile to grow into a much more purposeful shape as the wind increases. With its five bat-ten outline and geometry, the Horizon does feel more of a high-wind freeride / freemove contender, rather than a loose and neutral manoeuvre specialist, when compared to others in the group. It encourages a more locked in stance and would be a great companion for coastal bump and jump, or making the most of less than ideal wave arenas. With balanced handling and a dependable delivery, it copes superbly with violent gusts, the lower clew eyelet always avail-able should the conditions continue to become more severe. Speed and upwind drive are real assets of the Horizon, both well received when stuck on the inside of a cross-onshore spot. On the wave it does try to go neutral as it is eased out, the battens pushing back round the mast as the draft depth reduces. Ultimate-ly, it feels a little heavier and stiffer than some, which is to be expected, but given its cost, the performance on tap is certainly impressive.

THE VERDICT: Representing excellent value for money, the Horizon provides assured, dependable power and real practicality for everyday coastal use, from high wind blasting to tackling tough cross-onshore wave spots.

ON THE BEACH: Peak and Transwave are a thing of the past. GunSails follows the trend of other brands and transfers both sail lines into the Horizon. From 5.3 square meters and larger the program is called Power Wave. The sails with five square meters and smaller still have plenty of power, but the profile is much flatter for better off above the boom. All sizes use only five battens. The equipment of the Horizon is full of X-Ply for the toughest use. Therefore the sail is quite heavy with 3.69 kilograms and takes the last place in our group. New this year, as with the Seal, is the seam guide from the clew and leech to the mast top for improved twist behaviour. We tested the sail on a Gun Expert with 70 percent carbon. For the sail and the regular use by hobby windsurfers a very good compromise between performance and durability! Typical for Gun are slightly higher trim forces and a noticeable Loose Leech.

ON THE WATER: The horizon is perfectly aligned right from the start. This sail wants to glide, especially straight ahead. The pressure point is rather low and doesn't pull the rider over the front immediately at the first small gust. Much more gusts are automatically converted into propulsion in a good interplay of twist in the leech and a soft sail course in the luff. This is great for climbers and all those who are not permanently busy plucking the sail to generate a little performance here and there. The Horizon does a lot by itself and accelerates, although it is not one of the ultimate planing engines. The ride stability of the Horizon is absolutely first class. Also the acceleration of the powerful Gun is very uniform and gets everything out of fast boards without ever getting uncontrolled, this feature pays off on shallow water and there the Horizon will always prove itself. Those who only want to ride waves and jump with a wave sail will be less happy. The Gun does not react as directly to steering impulses as the five-batten competition from Severne or Naish. Also the low clew reminds a little of the times of the Transwave. Only wave beginners can take advantage of the constant drive, experts miss neutrality.

CONCLUSION: The Horizon has its roots in this size much closer to the Transwave than to the old peak. Was this decision a good one? That's for you to decide! The Horizon is a classic powerwave sail with excellent gliding characteristics.

PLANCHEMAG 11-12 2018 / HORIZON 5.3 2019

GUNSAILS | Testergebnisse Horizon 2019 Planchemag

This great new 5-batten Power Wave 2019 is an evolution of the Transwave and Peak 2018, it has a distinctive profile in the luff area in 5.3 sqm (editor's note: less pronounced and more compact in the smaller sizes) and a nice Loose Leech. The construction consists of different types of X-Ply (except the Dacron mast panel), with a lighter Square-Ply (90° angulation) at the top/leech.

ON THE WATER: Fans of powerful sails will be thrilled, the new Horizon 5.3 m2 is one of the best in this area. It is more powerful than the 4-batten Seal, with superior profile stability and more pull to get from the spot. Light surfers will quickly feel overwhelmed by this permanent basic pull in the sail. It appeals more to a powerful wave riding style, e.g. in weak wave conditions or more on shore conditions; so when you need support to move large volume boards, move heavy riders, overcome shore break and above all continue planing. It is a bit more bulky in the wave than a 4-batten sail and at the same time has a much better handling than a freewave sail. The Horizon is also suitable for Bump & Jump, to jump and have fun in small waves. Also tested in 4.0 m2, the Horizon is significantly less profiled and more in line with the standards of competitors. It is very strong to ride from A to B and in speed, with impressive stability in the upper wind range. The performance is easier to channel, less awkward, with a very wide range of use, including bump&jump and strong winds.

CONCLUSION: The Horizon offers an adaptive range that becomes more profiled from 5.3 m2 to allow more power wave riding and has a flatter profile in the smaller sizes for a more sensitive wave riding, easier to hold while offering high qualities in terms of range, stability and performance.
A super versatile and very efficient wave sail.


GUNSAILS | Test Reort Horizon 2019 Wind Mag


DESIGN: The Horizon is the new addition to the GUNSAILS line and replaces the Transwave and Peak. It is held by 5 battens, its program aims to combine power, agility and control. Its shape is more compact than the former Transwave and its profile is more neutral.

ON THE WATER: The Horizon is a fully battened sail with a good profile tension. It seems to have a slightly more forward profile than the old Transwave and above all a pull that is more forward oriented. It always has power and some pull on the rear hand, but the sail is less exhausting and has good propulsion. The Horizon is a fast sail and also starts planing fast. With a stable profile and tightly pulled, the sail releases a strong power that allows you to quickly get out of difficult situations. To jump over the ramp in onshore wind is a real benefit. Also in bump & jump conditions it is pleasant, here you appreciate his control and also the range of use, the power development is now much more natural than with the former Transwave. In the wave it is not too bulky and behaves correctly neutral, but its profile and handling are not as sensitive as the most wave oriented of the group.

CONCLUSION: GUNSAILS introduces a new 5-batten wave sail with revised design. Powerful and efficient, it is aimed at all those who are looking above all for power to jump over waves and ride them, but also want to have fun in choppy water. With the help of the two clew eyelets you can play at the settings and thus neutralize the performance, which also underlines the versatility of this model.

+: Power, performance, stability, efficiency
-: Less sensitive and neutral
