Faster and more performance oriented than the typical freeride sail, but still light and without cambers.

Our Freerace sail RAPID has proven its abilities in several tests by being the fastest in its class. Nevertheless, the Rapid doesn’t need you to be an expert to release its full potential.

The 7 batten setup and slalom inspired outline ensures a stable profile and an untypical amount of high performance for a no cam sail. Due to a small modification of the batten configuration, the profile moves slightly towards the clew improving acceleration and top speed. At the same time the sail is super comfortable in its handling and rotates easily through every jibe.

To sum it up, this sail is without compromise - slalom characteristics and top speeds combined with the easy handling of a no cam freeride sail. That’s why it’s called Freerace.

Image

FAST RIGGING EASY DOING

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).

Image

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.

Image

TOP GUARD

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


Image

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.

Image

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.

Image

BATTEN GUARD

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

Image

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.

Image

POCKET GUARD

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

Image

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

Image

BOOM SETTING

The boom length is printed beside the clew.

Image

BOOM POSITION CONTROL

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

Image

SLEEVE VOLUMER

The Gun Sails 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.

Image

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.

Image

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.

Image

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.

Image

MESH POCKET

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

Image

STRAP ON

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

Image

HD X-PLY

The new High Density X-Ply shows the highest thread density of our used materials. It combines the characteristics of the square ply with the ones of the regular x-ply. Together they form a highly resistant and durable material, which is light at the same time. HD X-Ply finds application in the upper panels of our wave and freemove sails. The area including the material is specifically designed to suit the range of the sail. The result is an especially stable and reactive leech construction.

Image

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.

Image

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.


Image

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.

Image

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.

Image

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.


Image

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.

Image

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.

Image

CROSS BATTEN CONCEPT

Mostly used on the flatwater range due to a lot of surface in the boom area. The longest batten of the sail starts below the boom area, crosses the boom line and ends above the clew. The crossing batten does stabilize the profile, which is extremely important in that area. Like that the sail is more effective in acceleration and pumping and has a more stable pressure point.


Image

SYMMETRICAL BATTEN SYSTEM

The alternate positioning of the battens on the back and the front of the sail leads to a more equalized tension- and weight distribution. This arrangement will provide you with the exact same sail feeling, independent of the direction you are riding.

PLANCHEMAG SPECIAL TESTS 2017

 

RAPID 6.7 2017 / Has pure slalom genes


ON THE WATER


Power is diffused gradually in light winds and it takes a good squall before this typical race profile comes alive. It doesn't do so well planing in small waves. It doesn't give you the best support under the back hand, it is less lively. But once it gets moving you'll fully appreciate its stability and raction at the front. You can stay well planted at the back. while being pulled forward... (complete test report available on planchemag.fr)

 

+ Bargain price, easy to adjust, glides windward and crosswind, stability, control.

- Less impressive in low wind conditions.
