Key Features

  • Versatile: Moderate and progressive luff curve for optimum maneuverability, speed and power in both onshore and side-shore conditions.

  • Fuse Pocket construction for a fully symmetrical batten cavity

  • Central Moderate Profile for optimum balance between upwind power and stability. Increased shaping in mid and forward body section for consistent drive.

  • Wide Wind Range: A large tuning range, thanks to a stable profile, allows the rider to trim the sail for all conditions.

  • Construction: Available in both clear and HD window.

  • 4 battens configuration on all sizes.

Designer's Comments

The new Fuse Pocket construction introduced this season in the wave and freestyle program, allows us to reduce the seam shaping and retain profile stability and power of the Combat 2017. This results in a sail that feels much lighter in the hands, with less back-hand pressure that maintains drive and upwind performance. In parallel, the new Powerfuse allows us to reduce the weight while increasing the strength in critical sections making the Combat stronger than ever.

Technology

  • High-strength rip-stop grid made of high-tenacity ULTRA yarns at +/-40 degrees. This yarn has a similar breaking strength to KevlarTM, but much better UV resistance. Available on Fly / Combat / Atlas / Wizard.

  • 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, eliminating the tendency of traditional batten pockets to load differently from one tack to another

  • Moderate Compact Clew for a compact outline with rider focused surface area and improved sail twist.

  • Powerfuse is a whole new way to reinforce and lighten the sail body by using an innovative material fusion method. Doing away with unnecessary patch reinforcements, seams and stitches, we created fully integrated, laminated panels of variable thickness that support localised loads and strengthen the sail where it needs it most.

  • Double stitching is used on all critical seams on all sails allowing them to endure prolonged exposure to high loads and impacts.

  • Pro Tips

    “It works fantastically in any wave conditions. The perfect balance between power and lightness, speed and maneuverability.”
