RS:RACING EVOX

The all-new RS:Racing EVOX simply revolutionizes how a racing sail is built: ground-breaking Airflow Batten Layout places battens parallel to the airflow when sailing, reducing drag and improving acceleration and speed. The resulting seven-batten design allowed us to dramatically drop the sail weight and speed up rotation while holding on to stability. EVOX is further charged with reactive leech opening and handling, updated progressive aspect ratio, cleaner panel layout doing away with the unnecessary and four UltraCams. Welcome to the future of fast.

WATCH THE EVOX IN ACTION

AIRFLOW BATTEN LAYOUT

Battens are laid out angled up from the mast and, as a result, they end up laying horizontal and parallel to the airflow when sailing. This cleans the airflow along the sail body and reduce drag. This innovative concept allowed us to reduce the design from eight to seven battens by extending the total length of each batten.

More Acceleration

Clean airflow along the sail body reduces drag. Combined with the new leech twist, the sail reacts to every gust and pump, opening instantly to gain that moment of pure acceleration. These improvements result in increased overall top speed.

Better Stability

EVOX is incredibly stable, especially considering it is a seven batten racing sail. The angled batten design gives excellent support to the sail profile, leading the sail to feel far more comfortable through gusts.

Lighter Weight

The lightest RS:Racing sail ever developed. The weight was reduced by an average of 500g compared to EVO9 while maintaining strong construction and without reducing film thickness. Reducing from eight to seven battens as well as adjustments in the Quadruple Luff Panel Layout and clew construction add to the very significant weight reduction.

Faster Rotation

Ease and speed of rotation was a top priority in the EVOX evolution. The elimination of one batten and the reduction of the profile in the rear of the sail in the boom area allows the rotation to start to “S-bend” in the back — like a freeride sail — and then smoothly progress through the front, to the UltraCams. Flipping the sail through rotation is much quicker and allows you to exit the jibe faster with greater stability.

Technology

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Structural laminated panel with radiating yarns that seamlessly absorb and disperse loads into the sail body.

    Racing Legacy

    ONCE A BENCHMARK, ALWAYS A BENCHMARK.

    RS:Racing — a mark that declares the concentrated essence of NeilPryde. Sails with the best technology, speed, power and enhanced specification, designed to propel you across new boundaries. Sails for riders who only play to win.

    Over 30 years of domination in slalom and speed events didn’t come easily. It came from the hands and hearts of the best racers in the world, the best designers and top engineers. We know how to bring them together and make the fastest sails in the world.

    The RS:Racing EVOX marks a decade of evolution in NeilPryde’s EVO series and the 17th sail borne from the RS:Racing program.

    We can’t wait to see what you do with it.

    I have been working on the RS:Racing program for many years now with Robert Stroj and those sails helped me to win many world titles and break records. The new EVOX is just incredible, it is the most exciting improvement yet — I can’t wait to get it on the race course.

    I already loved the EVO9 but the new EVOX is such a boost. With only seven battens it´s not only much lighter, it also accelerates continuously in light winds and gusts. And thanks to fast cam rotation, there is less back hand pressure while allowing super quick jibes.
