4 CAM COMP SLALOM SAIL

Our R&D team around sail designer Renato Morlotti continuously develops our World Cup sail and maximizes year after year the acceleration and top speed in all wind ranges. At the same time the demands of the Pro Racers are realized. Besides breathtaking performance, the sail also needs a certain amount of handling to support the rider's endurance. Because the immense planing power and maximum acceleration must remain controllable to achieve the best results.

Our R&D team around sail designer Renato Morlotti continuously develops our World Cup sail and maximizes year after year the acceleration and top speed in all wind ranges. At the same time the demands of the Pro Racers are realized. Besides breathtaking performance, the sail also needs a certain amount of handling to support the rider's endurance. Because the immense planing power and maximum acceleration must remain controllable to achieve the best results. This is ensured by 4 roll cams and a batten frame, which consists exclusively of light, stiff tube battens.
A revised 3D mast sleeve made of stretch-free square-ply, unidirectional Kevlar strips inside and a luff panel made of robust x-ply material keep the GS-R in shape at all times. So the GS-R can deliver its performance at the touch of a button. The racing scene is constantly on the move and with the arrival of Foil Races, the demands are changing. For this season, the sizes, gradation and number of sail sizes have been revised and also optimized with regard to foiling.
In addition we present the purebred Foil Race sail GS-F. With maximum drive and maximum acceleration at even better top speed, the race sail is more than ready for the next World Cup season.
Our Pro Team agrees: the GS-R 2021 sets new standards in slalom.

WIND SPÉCIAL TEST 2021 | GS-R 7.0 2021

Test Report Windsurf Sail Surf Magazin, Windsurf Journal, Planchemag, Windsurf UK, Windnews

Fast and balanced

DESIGN: The Gunsails race sail sizing has been retuned this year to adapt to the advent of foiling in PWA World Cup slaloms. The GS-R 7.0 features a large notch on the clew, while the two clew rollers have a large offset to match the power/opening of the leech. Gunsails also reduced the X-Ply reinforcement in the foot and omitted the X-Ply reinforcement in the top of the sail, resulting in a nice weight savings.

ON THE WATER: With good dynamics from the planing phase and efficient pumping, the GSR is a smooth sail for this class. With a balanced pull in the center of the boom, the sail is neutral and runs with ease. Whether the wind is strong or light, the rig will adjust without forcing a position or playing with your back hand. Just let the rig work for excellent performance and guide the sail with your fingertips as if the sail's profile were slimmer. It's a guarantee of good operability, but also efficiency on long rides like long distance surfing where the physical aspect can make all the difference. In the contact phases, where every gust or wind hole makes the difference, the Gunsails continues its performance with an exemplary straightness on all courses and especially well close-hauled. However, the rider who likes to race or plays with the speed might miss a little more backhanding and acceleration on demand, especially when upwind. When jibing, the Gunsails doesn't scare its rider, the power is well neutralized and the camber changes direction smoothly. Only a little inertia at the front can lead to destabilization when you close in again on a new course.

VERDICT: With a smooth planing and great balance, the GSR 2021 is a lightweight sail that is easy to handle both technically and physically. Its speed, average speed and ability to stay efficient on all courses make it a great tool for the less technical surfers who like to explore the water on downwind, half-wind and upwind or for example in long distance racing.
