FLIGHT EVO

SPEED HAS A NAME. MEET THE NEW EVO XI.

The technology, ideas and concepts that are created and refined during the RS:Racing development process are ultimately applied to all of the sails in the NeilPryde range. Last year’s EVOX has introduced a milestone in the history of development of racing sails. Countless victories have shown the success of this new sail technology.

At NeilPryde we live and breathe innovation, however, seeing the performance of the EVOX we were for the first time hesitant to make deep cutting changes, because why change something that outperforms already on so many levels? Therefore, we focused on tweaking and improving some minor imperfections to make this year’s EVOXI, the 18th sail of the RS:Racing Evo series, even better than its predecessor while not fully revolutionizing it.

KEY FEATURES

QUADRUPLE LUFF PANEL LAYOUT

Both EVOXI and FLGIHT EVO feature four continuous, durable, stretch-resistant and lightweight luff panels that carry most of the sail body shaping.

This configuration stabilizes the critical section draft position while providing an increased film thickness proportional to downhaul load distribution.

Continuous panels eliminate horizontal seams crossing the highly loaded leading edge, which increases response of the sail. Introducing this stable leading edge platform allows very high downhaul loads and integrated clear pocket construction.


COMPONENT SLEEVE CONSTRUCTION

Combining different materials in the sleeve sections allows us to achieve optimum profile entry stability and elasticity, smooth rotation and light weight. By removing any stitching that could come in contact with the mast

we created a seamless leading edge. This increases precision during the assembly process, reducing weight at the leading edge and creating a perfectly clean profile entry to eliminate construction weak spots.

Lightweight TetoronTM Upper-front section (1) offers the necessary elasticity and durability to resist direct mast contact.

A low stretch DyneemaTM Armour Web section (2) can take high downhaul tension and is critical in stabilizing the profile entry, providing smooth bridging between UltraCams.

A tapered strip of TetoronTM along the back edge of the sleeve (3) where it connects to the sail body is used to provide the necessary elasticity in this area together with improved durability.

The bottom part of the sleeve is finished in our durable and elastic Luff Glide material (4) allowing for important smooth rotation.


LEADING EDGE RIB

Carbon ribs sewn onto the upper sleeve’s leading edge stabilize this critical section of the profile on the highest battens where cambers are not used.

This helps maintain the sail’s profile clean, reducing drag, allowing higher top speed and ensuring proper rotation.


TWIST SHAPING CONCEPT

As in the EVOX, the Sail twist allows more release, so you feel like you have gained an extra gear. Even with just seven battens, EVOXI opens instantly, gaining that moment of acceleration when going through a gust, feeling much more stable and preventing the center of effort from moving back in the sail. The result is reduced backhand pressure that gives smooth acceleration boosts in gusts.



FEATURES

CLEAR WINDOW IN MAST SLEEVE

Clear window in the mast sleeve for better visibility during racing. Especially when arriving to the first buoys. This was the most required feature from our team riders to improve racing.

CARBON LEECH MINI BATTENS

Provide maximum support with minimum weight.

VISUAL TRIMMING SYSTEM

Downhaul tension guide. Max. and Min. Recommended leech release points. Located on the upper leech between battens #2 and #3.

DUAL BOOM LENGTH COMPACT CLEW

Has been slightly improved and redesigned to avoid contact of sail edge body with the boom. Outer and inner clew position straight alignment. Retains same clew height and boom to mast rake on both clew positions, reduces weight and prevents rear part of the foot touching the water when jibing.

CARBON COMPOSITE BATTENS

Carbon tubes are placed in the central section of the sail body, adding extra stability and preventing the profile from moving back. The lightness of carbon battens minimize the swing weight which increases the reflex of the leech which is something really unique in our sail.
Starting from the Top; #3 (Single RDM Carbon tube) and #4 (Precision Tapered CNC 2-piece Carbon tube) Besides the Carbon tubes in the central section of the sail, additional Fiberglass tubes offer extra durability in areas more exposed to crashes.
The progressive flex creates a deeper profile, essential in generating low end power and upwind performance.
Starting from the Top;
#1 - #2 (Single RDM Fiberglass tube) and #5 - #6 - #7 (Precision Tapered CNC 2-piece Fiberglass tube).

BATCAMS

Batten tensioner system allowing precise tuning and secured positive locking without the need for tools. Starting from the Top: #1 - #2 - #3 (Mini lightweight Batcams combined with tension adjuster set), #4 - #5 (Batcams combined with tension adjuster set) and #6 - #7 (Batcams combined with tube screw adjuster and Allen key for an extra tension system).

LOOPSTERS

Allowing easy rigging through loop to loop system and optimized adjustable outhaul function that reduces the friction and eliminates any crossing lines
(crucial when using adjustable outhaul system).

ULTRACAMS

Suspended camber system improves sail rotation and acceleration out of jibes. Simultaneous tuning of battens and cambers makes sail tunable for different mast diameters and camber pressure.

FUSE POCKETS

Overlapping body panels create a sleeve for battens, eliminating the need for traditional, separate batten pockets. This saves on unnecessary weight, simplifies construction and creates a fully symmetrical batten cavity, delivering a fully equal sail on both tacks.

KEVLAR BATTEN BRIDGES

To distribute the high downhaul load crossing the battens.

AERODYNAMIC BOOM CUTOUT CLOSURE

Prevents the apparent wind from blowing into the mast sleeve and generating drag.

BATTEN CHAFE PROTECTION

Abrasion resistant PU print to help protect the battens from damage caused by rigging or boom contact.

SAIL SHAPING

Sail shaping balances the speed and power of a sail with control and handling.
