Designer's Comment

With a shorter boom and higher cut foot than the Hellcat, the Ryde perfectly combines Freemove and Freeride characteristics. Six battens and the Dynamic Compact Clew make it fast and controllable in straight lines with a wide windrange that provides a truly fun freeriding experience.

Technology

  • ArmourWeb is constructed from full polyester lines at +/-40 degrees, creating an interlaced, woven web for high tear resistance. Available on Fusion / Ryde / Speedster / V8 / Dragonfly.

  • With the Dynamic Compact Clew, where the clew is positioned forward from the trailing edge, the profile behind the clew is able to twist off when wind pressure increases. The sail automatically adjusts its shape, preventing the draft from moving back and controlling excess power.

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

  • “Fun for everyone!”
