FREEMOVE FREERIDE SAIL

The new Torro FR 2020 moves from the X-Over category even further in the direction of Freeride/ Bump&Jump. Instead of square-ply in the top, we now used monofilm, which gives the entire profile a more direct feeling. This also has a positive effect on the weight of the sail. Nevertheless, all sail reinforcements remain at a top level. The complete sail outline is generously laid out with X-PLY. For sure the stable Tension Frame and the standard GUNSAILS features are on board aswell and therefore ensure longevity.

What the new Torro FR loses in terms of wave suitability, it clearly compensates with flat water fun. With a pronounced loose leech in combination with the strong planing performance it covers a huge wind range. 5 battens including a tube batten above the boom allow early planing and an amazing top speed. The genes of the classic Torro also guarantee easy handling in all manoeuvres. Here the new Torro FR becomes a great handling alternative for a classic 6 batten freeride sail.
The Torro FR is and remains the ideal combination of handling and freeride and stands for unlimited surfing fun at all windsurfing levels.

Freemove Windsurf Segel

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.


PLANCHEMAG N°403 – August/September/October

GUNSAILS | Torro 2020 Test report Planchemag

TORRO 5.7 2020
475 EUR

More powerful than the 5 batten Horizon, the Torro shows a robust finish with lots of X-Ply and a lighter mesh material in the sail top. It is equipped with one tube batten for more profile stability and needs a strong pull on the luff for the Loose Leech and rotate the battens in the jibe. From 5.7 to 6.9 there is also the Torro FR version without X-Ply in the main window.

On the water
With a clearly visible belly behind the mast and a slightly flatter profile on the back hand and a smooth twist in the leech, the Torro feels a little firmer, stiffer than average in planing and acceleration. It has good forward pull with a well balanced ratio between mast and sail hand. What's noticeable is that the profile is less deformed than a lot of competitors, it remains cemented in the front area. You can also relieve the back hand, it's just enough to put your hand on the boom, the Torro lies well balanced in your hands, without having to force with increasing wind. The more the wind increases and gets gustier, the more you appreciate its stability and control, with good upwind characteristics and a top end speed you have to expend less force in your arms than with other sails. When it comes to handling, the sail neutralizes itself faster than others when you release the back hand to let the excess power flow away. You can thus sail with tightly spaced harness lines and enjoy the planing, and the sail automatically adjusts itself to the wind. However, it doesn't make itself as easily "invisible" in the arms as an onshore wave sail or some freewave sails that are lighter, softer and more reactive.

Conclusion
An excellent Bump&Jump sail, which, thanks to its qualities of control and performance in the upper wind range, also reaches into the strong wind freeride range. On top of that, there is still enough forward pull to get through wind holes, which contributes to a very wide range of use.
