For 2020 we achieved some extra weight savings without compromising durability. Therefore, we added some new Kevlar lines within the sail body to precisely control the stretch and guarantee long lasting sail characteristics. The sail sizes are adapted to the prevailing conditions. Smaller sizes are more compact and slightly oriented towards wave and windy conditions, thus making the sail forgiving and easy to control.
The bigger sizes from 5.7 to 6.9 have an updated luff curve resulting in a flatter and more reactive profile. With just the right amount of power the sail feels always light but does still generate tons of speed and acceleration. Within one trim adjustment the sail already covers a massive wind range, what once again underlines the unique versatility of the Torro.
To sum it up, the Torro 2020 is represented by its wide range of use, effortless handling and guarantees fun and progression for all windsurfing levels.

Freemove Windsurf Sail

F.R.E.D.

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - F.R.E.D.

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).


TOP GUARD

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Top Guard

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


VARIO TOP

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - 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.


MINI BATTENS

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - 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.


BATTEN GUARD

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Batten Guard

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


INTERNAL TRIM BATTEN

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - 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.


POCKET GUARD

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Pocket Guard

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


REDUCED BOOM LENGHT

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - 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.


OFFSET CLEW

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - 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


TRIM SETTING

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Trim Setting

The boom length is printed beside the clew. The mast lenght is patched on the mast protector.


BOOM POSITION CONTROL

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Boom Position Control

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


DOUBLE LOCK SEAMS

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Double Lock Seams

Double seams form the most stable connection between individual panels and different materials. They are used in stress zones as well as in areas of high tension and make your sail robust and durable.


FOOT GUARD

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - 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.


COMFORT PULLEY

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - 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.


SLEEVE VOLUMER

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Sleeve Volumer

The GUNSAILS 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.


STRAP ON

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Strap On

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


MESH POCKET

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - Mesh Pocket

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


MAST FOOT PROTECTOR

GUNSAILS | Sail Features - 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.


INTELLIGENT MATERIAL ASSEMBLY

GUNSAILS | Sail Tech - Intelligent Material Assembly

The well designed combination of different materials allows weight savings without losing stability. By varying the stretch behaviour of the individual materials, we can precisely define each sail profile under pressure and guarantee you consistent sailing characteristics over the long term.


TENSION FRAME

GUNSAILS | Sail Tech - 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.


DOUBLE LOCK SEAMS

GUNSAILS | Sail Tech - 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.


SMART CLEW CONSTRUCTION

GUNSAILS | Sail Tech - 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.


KEVLAR STRETCH CONTROL

GUNSAILS | Sail Tech - 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.


MULTIDIRECTIONAL X-PLY

GUNSAILS | Sail Tech - 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.


SQUARE-PLY

GUNSAILS | Sail Tech - 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.


X-PLY

GUNSAILS | Sail Tech - 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.


WINDSURFING JAHRBUCH 2020 | Torro 6.0 2020

Testbericht Windsurf Freemove Segel Surf Magazin, Windsurf Journal, Planchemag

ON LAND: The Torro has earned an enviable reputation as a balanced all-round sail. Our tests in recent years have shown that the sail always works well on freeride to wave boards and in the appropriate conditions. For 2020, the Torro has been further refined in some details. The tube batten above the boom has returned. The additional seams in the sail top have disappeared, because a continuous panel saves weight, just like the new and thin mesh laminate. Exemplary are the numerous reinforcements and the generous use of X-Ply, which improves the durability for use in waves. For those who prefer a more direct sailing feel and use the Torro mainly in flat water, GUNSAILS also offers the slightly less expensive Torro FR in sizes above 5.3 with monofilm instead of X-Ply in the main window. The correct luff tension is quickly found thanks to the trimming mark for the Loose Leech.

ON THE WATER: In non planing the Torro lies neutral and very balanced in the hand. The correct angle is easy to find. The Dacron luff panel and the harmonious profile provide gentle feedback without the sail being backhanded. The mixture of directness and damping is very well done and even heavy surfers can pump hard without the sail deforming. This simple characteristic makes it possible even for less experienced surfers to enjoy the full acceleration of the Torro. The sail remains stable up to the upper wind range. The soft feedback of the profile also has a positive effect on the handling: Whether Race Jibe, Duck Tack or Bottom Turn, the power of the profile can always be controlled easily and predictably. Only those who want a sail that looks more like a breath of nothing should turn to the next page. The Torro's large trim range is also worth mentioning: apart from the fact that it also works with the "wrong" trim, it has a great range even with a very bulbous setting. So you can adjust it very well for different boards, spots and surf styles.

CONCLUSION: Cry out of happiness, because you're not sending it back! Whether it's breaking waves, bump and jump or a freeride session in flat water, the Torro can do it all. It is one of the most balanced, versatile and customer-friendly products tested. Every windsurfer who likes to go out in different conditions can take advantage of it without hesitation.

WIND SPÉCIAL TESTS 2020 | Torro 5.7 2020

Test report Windsurf Freemove Segel Surf Magazin, Windsurf Journal, Planchemag

The session will always be fun

DESIGN: The Gunsails Freemove evolves according to the sail surface, from wave to freeride, and adjusts its geometry. The 5.7, in the middle of the line, has a short 177cm boom, reinforcements in the knee area and in front of the rider, and a narrow mast sleeve. For 2020, the luff curve has been revised and the profile refined.

ON THE WATER: With its modified profile and the addition of unidirectional Kevlar fibres in its construction, the Torro 2020 responds more directly, with the rig providing better stability. The acceleration is dry and more noticeable. However, the power is not rough or disturbing in the hand, the handling is only made easier without shaking the rider. A subtle dose of softness brings comfort to the ride. With a weight reduction of 100 grams, the riding sensation is improved by free handling. With a boom length of less than 180 cm, a low eyelet and a relatively straight cut under the boom, the Torro can change direction at any time. The Torro shows good skills in the wave and you don't have to worry about your rig. It also shows good stability when going straight with a good balance between forehand and backhand. The reactive acceleration is exhilarating, so you can enjoy driving towards a ramp or just go full throttle. The Torro is the heart of the "Bump & Jump" concept. The Gunsails is especially easy to rig, as the logo of the trim aid is ideally placed at the top of the sail.

CONCLUSION: The new Torro vintage shows an increase in dynamics and at the same time remains one of the most playful sails on the market. This all-round profile is the very definition of funboard that feels comfortable anywhere without neglecting any area of use. We have enjoyed using the Gun at full throttle both in the waves and in flat water. The Torro is very accessible, with a clean finish and a great price.
