NeilPryde 2018 Collection

We all have individual ambitions — whether it’s planing for the first time, beating a friend to the buoy or winning a World Championship. Each of us defines our own goals and success but we are all connected by a unifying sense of victory. At NeilPryde, our mission is to inspire you in your own personal achievement, and to provide you with the best equipment to attain it. We understand winning in the water—about combining cutting edge designs with high performance materials. If we can’t find something we need, then we’ll invent it. This year, we usher in a whole new level of performance by reinventing how a sail is made. Take a look, and find your own win — whatever that may be. We only play to win.

 

The 2018 V8

The V8 is a freerace sail that offers incredible acceleration with each gust including non-planing conditions. It delivers true race sail performance combined with a narrower sleeve, 7 battens and twin Integra-cams to achieve smooth handling and a lighter feel. With extremely early planing, soft rotation, large wind range and great upwind and upper hand control, the V8 has extra power and drive needed to accelerate and go fast on freerace boards. The sail configuration makes it considerably lighter in maneuvers while being less physical and easier to downhaul than pure race sails. Slalom for everyone.

 


The 2018 Speedster

With an outline coming straight from the RS:Racing development program, the Speedster is an explosive, performance-freeride sport sail. The Speedster offers greater performance and wind range than a classic freeride sail while being more user-friendly and balanced than a cam sail. Tubular battens allow the center of effort to remains in place while the profile delivers an exhilarating combination of performance, speed and acceleration. Slalom without Cambers.

 

The 2018 Ryde

Plane for the fist time, discover your first jibe and waterstart, or ride for hours hooked in the harness lines on perfect flat waters — the Ryde has been designed to offer great low-end power and stability for early planing and controlled maneuvers. Easy to rig and trim, it delivers immediate fun with no constrains, while retaining the NeilPryde signature performance feeling. No Stress / Easy Rider.

 


The 2018 Fusion

Sitting right between the wave and freeride programs, the Fusion offers a flavor for every taste. The Fusion is more stable and has more drive than a traditional wave sail, while being lighter and more maneuverable in the waves or in the air than a freeride sail. Use it anywhere, in any wind strength, on any water condition. Learn the basics, jump, catch a wave, or get into freeride mode, because on any given day you can experience it all. With forgiving handling and full HD construction, the Fusion perfectly fits to freewave, freemove and freestyle-wave boards.

 

The 2018 Wizard

The Wizard is the most accomplished freestyle sail there is, working perfectly for every level, whether you are going for your first spocks or pushing limits with double power moves. Delivering explosive acceleration, direct drive and insane lift, the Wizard planes instantly and depowers on-demand, providing silky smooth handling. Early planing, stability and balanced feel during tricks are the key requirements for a freestyle sail and the Wizard has it all. Plenty of air and more pop than ever. The Wizard now uses the revolutionary Powerfuse construction featuring fully integrated, laminated panels of variable thickness that support localised loads and strengthen the sail where it needs it most.

 


The 2018 Atlas

When you need to get safely across the white lines, or charge upwind through lulls, the 2018 Atlas delivers reassuring power and control — all that you need in on-shore wave conditions. Early to plane, the Atlas is up and ready for action with efficient, controllable power at all times. Featuring great upwind ability and acceleration, the Atlas pushes hard with unmatched profile stability. Atlas now uses the revolutionary Powerfuse construction featuring fully integrated, laminated panels of variable thickness that support localised loads and strengthen the sail where it needs it most.

 

The 2018 Combat
The legendary Combat stands out as the sail of choice for any wave sailing condition. No matter which spot, from side-offshore winds and perfect peeling waves to huge onshore white waters, the Combat will never disappoint. Designed for dynamic and aggressive sailors, the Combat delivers low-end power when you need it — for as long as you want it. Light for jumping, stable for predictability, and strong for endurance, the Combat is equipped to deal with whatever, whenever, and whoever. The Combat now uses the revolutionary Powerfuse construction featuring fully integrated, laminated panels of variable thickness that support localised loads and strengthen the sail where it needs it most.
