The choice of the right batten setup with the correct batten type is a crucial point to influence and optimize the sail profile. In the GS-R we use up to 4 different tube batten diameters in order to create the aerodynamically perfect profile. Light 9 and 11mm tubes in the top area to control the twist and save weight, combined with slightly stiffer 14 and 16 mm tubes in the boom area to withstand higher sail pressures and secure the profile stability.
Our cambers have outlying rolls which ensure easy positioning on the mast. Once in position, the rolls reduce the friction and allow an easier and softer rotation of the sail. We offer four different types of camber depending on the position they are used in the sail. Through the change of cambers and the correct adaptation of the spacers the sail can be modified to be used with an RDM instead of an SDM mast. The right spacer setup can also help to finetune the sail. You can find detailed instruction on our website in the support category.
3D WING SLEEVE
The aerodynamically optimized mast sleeve, resembles the wing of an airplane and enables maximum power development of your sail. An additional line of kevlar warp laminate in the middle of the mast sleeve is working like an anchor, holding the 3D profile in its defined position. Therefore the center of effort stays always in its place and the sail continuously accelerates!
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.
TRIPLE OFFSET CLEW
Three different clew positions enable maximum trim flexibility. The use of the upper clew will give you an ergonomic advantage in low wind, enabling the ideal lever to pump and plane through. The centre and lower clew lead to more control in mid to high winds. Through the correct use of the Triple Offset Clew your sail sets your centre of gravity into the perfect position to transform all your energy into speed.
The boom opening is covered with a zipped neopren cover thus reducing air friction and improving overall aerodynamics. The cover also prevents water from entering through the boom opening what will help your waterstarts.
The GS-R and Vector are equipped with the tack strap to further regulate the downhaul tension. Through an additional fixation point the bottom contour of the sail is perfectly held in place, thus enabling higher speeds and more performance.
The zipper opening in the mastsleeve allows easy access to the cambers, thus simplifying the rigging and enabling easy camber fine tuning through spacers.
