4 CAM SLALOM SAIL
World Cup Racing Performance on the next level. The GS-R has been completely redesigned for the upcoming race season. In the 2019 setup, our slalom sail sets new standards in acceleration, drive and top speed. The development is based on close cooperation between the R&D team in Tarifa and our PWA athlete Ben van der Steen.
> High tech sail for ambitious speed or slalom sailors
> Maximum drive and improved acceleration
> Perfect aerodynamics due to 3D Wing Sleeve and neoprene cover
> Triple Offset Clew for maximum trim flexibility
> Tackstrap to further adapt the downhaul tension
> Sizes 5.0 and 5.6 RDM only
Size 6.3 is equipped with RDM Camber. To use the sail with a SDM mast you need this SDM Camberset.
With a new concept and adapted outline, all sizes for 2019 are constructed on the basis of 7 battens. The bending curve and the mast sleeve construction have also been completely revised. The 3D Wing Sleeve is made of light and stretch free Square-Ply, the main luff panel is out of solid X-Ply material, supported by unidirectional Kevlar strips in the inside of the profile. With new XXL cambers and the combination of two monofilm thicknesses in the upper area, the sail gets even more profile stability and an improved reactivity. This increases pump efficiency as well as acceleration in low and high wind. The construction made it possible to maintain the resulting performance across all sizes. Smaller sails are softer to provide more control in high winds. Large sizes are more reactive and provide maximum drive and acceleration. Thanks to the balanced sail body, not only performance increases but also the handling of the sail.
Through tireless dedication and the daily testing routine, our team in Tarifa has once again succeeded in initiating the next era of the GS-R: uncompromising performance across all wind ranges. Ready to race!
