FLIGHT EVOIII

FOIL RACING. REDEFINED.

All sizes of the Flight EVOIII have been completely redesigned for 2022. 

Now featuring 4 internal luff panels, covered by 1 oversized sleeve, this edition of the RS Flight is the most stable, aerodynamic foil sail we have ever made.

High aspect ratio with a large foot to optimize performance on the foil.

3 clew positions to allow optimal tuning whether competing in slalom or upwind-downwind races.

HIGHLIGHT TECHNOLOGY

QUADRUPLE LUFF PANEL LAYOUT

The Flight EVOIII features four continuous, durable, stretch-resistant and lightweight luff panels that carry most of the sail’s body shaping, covered by one oversized luff sleeve. This configuration stabilizes the critical section draft position while providing an increased film thickness proportional to the downhaul load distribution.
Continuous panels eliminate horizontal seams crossing the highly loaded leading edge, which increases response of the sail.

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.

HIGH ASPECT RATIO DESIGN. FURTHER REFINED.

Foiling requires a very precise technique as it is crucial that the position of the draft stays unchanged to keep the flight stable and uninterrupted.

The very high aspect ratio design of the sail adds efficiency, while keeping profile stability and this way dramatically improves the foiling experience. This specific design makes the sail’s luff longer, therefore allowing for the boom to be shorter, which translates to more control.

HIGHER EFFICIENCY

Lift is created by the leading edge. On a high aspect sail, the leading edge is much longer relative to the sail size and this extra lift creates a more efficient sail for the rider. One of the major drag components is the tip vortex. On a high aspect ratio sail this is relatively less compared to the overall sail size, hence the effect is minimized.
