What is the point of the fastest sail if you can’t tame it? That’s why another focus of our sail designer Renato Morlotti lies on the technical and physical controllability of this sail. In permanent interaction with our team riders, we work on every little detail until all parties involved will agree.
A big step towards reducing the sail weight was already made in 2021. Nevertheless, through a re-design of important patches and an increase in lightweight 3mil ply, a few grams could be saved again, without neglecting the durability of the sail. On the water this is rewarded with more efficient pumping and top dynamics. Due to its balanced profile, the GS-R adjusts itself automatically, the rider can concentrate fully on the race in autopilot mode. This is also supported by the silently working leech, which absorbs gusts and noticeably improves the control of the sail, especially in the upper wind range.
With a profile supported exclusively by tube battens, 4 smooth rolling cams and its stable, forward-facing centre of effort, the GS-R is ready to accept any challenge.
Welcome GS-R 2022.

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.

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.
