POWER WAVE SAIL

A wave sail that also ensures unlimited fun beyond the wave - our Horizon launches into the fourth season. The 5 batten power wave sail is truly an all-round talent and adapts to any conditions: whether radical wave maneuvers or bump & jump action. The Horizon is capable to do both and proves itself in the waves on Maui as well as on choppy or flat water on the North Sea.

KEY FACTS:
> Extra power for more planing performance and lift
> Wide range of use from Radical Wave to Bump & Jump
> Offset Clew: Two offset clew eyelets for individual tuning, adjustment for power or control
> 100% X-Ply / Square-Ply and Kevlar Warp Laminates for most extreme use
> RDM compatible only (5.7 and 6.2 sqm also tolerate SDM)

Top acceleration, right from the start. The Horizon delivers a speedy planing performance for a wave sail. Thus, even upwind courses are never a challenge with the Horizon. With its 3 mil light square-ply in the top section and a reduced weight, it is easy to maneuver, to control and to handle in any situation. For the 22 series, the luff lengths have been significantly extended for the medium sail sizes. The longer aspect ratio allows the draft to sit a bit lower, making ON/OFF even smoother.
Another plus point: the Horizon is the chameleon among wave sails. Due to its adaptive size range, where each size is specifically designed to the according conditions, it covers an enormously wide wind range. The smaller sizes up to 5.0 sqm are designed rather for strong wind and radical wave action, whereas from 5.3 sqm onwards, the profile is a bit fuller and thus ideal for bump and jump and intense acceleration. 5.7 and 6.2 sqm can also be equipped with a SDM, smaller sizes are RDM only.
The Power Wave sail Horizon - as versatile as never, as action-packed as ever.

WINDNEWS ITALY - JUNE 2021 / HORIZON 5.7 2021

Rapport de Test Wave Sail Voile vague

In 2020 we tested GunSails' "big" four-batten wave sail, the Seal 5.7... this time we're taking on the same size of the five-batten power wave model: the Horizon 5.7, which comes in nine sizes from 3.7 to 6.1.

The proven 5-batten shape makes it even more suitable in this size than the Seal 5.7 as a freewave/bump&jump sail and also as a freeride sail, without losing sight of its role as a power wave, which is very suitable for our swells. A sail that is very easy to rig, because in this size you can combine it with rdm or sdm 430/21 masts without too many restrictions, and in both cases it doesn't take long to trim the sail optimally. For the test we paired it with our rdm Reptile Fibra 100 430/21 and it's likely that the sail gained in responsiveness, considering how the mast in question "reacts".

On the water, we immediately found ourselves with an intuitive sail that requires no special concentration to perform at its best even in light and gusty wind conditions. When the wind is really " light", as is often the case when using a 5.7 in the waves, you simply have to use the higher eyelet which "closes" the sail a little and makes it more planing and powerful. In normal or windy conditions it is better to use the lower eyelet as the Horizon already offers a fast planing start with constant sail pressure, but in this setting, in the strongest gusts, the upper part of the sail works great, making the leech "breathe" better and we get a super stable sail profile.

When jibing, the Horizon plays up its qualities as a wave sail.... quite light in the arms, agile, but also a bit less neutral and sensitive in the surf than the Seal. But all in all... a super flexible sail, offered at the usual super price and guaranteeing a really wide range of use: it can be used in wave spots, but also in flat water and chop, it feels comfortable in medium/light winds, it can be ridden more freely than the Seal 5.7 even in strong and gusty winds thanks to the five-batten shape. Nice!
