The R&D team around sail designer Renato Morlotti focuses on the GS-R, besides drive and acceleration, especially on technical and physical controllability. And this in constant dialogue with our GUNSAILS team riders and always with the goal of optimizing speed and acceleration even further and guaranteeing perfect handling. Speed is king! That's why the small sizes up to 6.3 sqm get a complete redesign this season. Innovative mast sleeve design, completely reworked profile and modified outline eliminate the speed limit. With the lighter sail feel and absolute control in strong wind conditions, the GS-R can push the limits in both slalom and speed events.
In order to focus not on the sail, but on the race, the GS-R's configuration is crucial: 4 smooth rolling cams, a batten configuration made of lightweight tube battens and a stable draft point ensure optimal handling and perfect control. A 3D wingsleeve made of Square-Ply, unidirectional Kevlar strips inside and a luff panel made of strong X-Ply material keep the GS-R's profile perfectly in shape. Also test reports confirm - Unlimited performance at the push of a button and a reliable companion for every World Cup race.

Let's start the race!

The development work on a race sail is never finished. It is only interrupted by the brief moment when the best prototype goes into series production and is then meticulously continued. Such a moment has just happened again and we are proud to present our best GS-R.

Testbericht Windsurf Segel

WIND MAY/JUNE 2023 // GS-R 7.0 2023

Performance at all levels

DESIGN: The GS-R 7.0 remains unchanged, with only the sizes below 6.3 receiving a complete technical redesign. The GSR is equipped with two clew eyelets to rein in or maximize performance on a strongly pronounced profile. The Gunsails is the only slalom sail equipped with a luff tension adjustment aid.

ON THE WATER: From the very first moment, the Gunsails displays a sense of power that is constantly felt. The GS-R stands out in the lower part for its excellent takeoff when planing. On the water, the profile is stable in all conditions, with an unchanging linear stability, without the need to change the position of the rig. The GSR gives a stiffer feel compared to other sails. The leech opening is pronounced, allowing the sail to breathe and accelerate easily. The steering response is sensitive, and the distribution of the front and rear pull allows for a sensitive ride. The power in the low speed range allows excellent placement and easy control of opponents in match racing. It shows a sporty character that is ideal for slalom racing, but will be a bit more physical on long rides once the upper wind range opens up, especially on the upper eyelet. The physical effort will be harder for riders with little power to use the full potential of the sail. The GS-R stays very efficient in the gybe without feeling bulky in the hands. Camber rotation is good, with good relaunch power.

CONCLUSION: Once again, the GS-R shows that it still compares favorably to the competition. With remarkable stability and performance in the low and mid range, the 7.0 stays in the race. Planing performance is impressive in easy water conditions, but will be a bit more rough in the upper range. Overall, Gunsails offers a slalom model with excellent value for money with its efficiency.
