  • Dual Boom Length C/Clew

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Forceline Panel

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

    High Aspect Ratio Design

    The Flight EVO is the answer for everyone who was waiting for a pure Foil Racing Sail that offers top performance in racing.

    Higher Efficiency

    Foiling requires a very precise technique, as you don't want any change in the position of the draft. As soon as the center of effort moves unpredictably, the stability of the flight gets interrupted. The high aspect ratio of the sail finally adds the stability to fully improve the foiling experience.The position of the sailor changes with the long mast and therefore the boom can also be shorter, which offers much more control and efficiency in movement. Unlike in Slalom, during foiling the sailor does not have the sensation of feeling the water chop as he flies above it and therefore can leverage the higher aspect ratio sail.

    Extra Lift

    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.This allows the rider to reach a very stable high speed.

    Highlights

    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. LightweightTetronTM 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 TetronTM 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.

    Quadruple Luff Panel Layout

    Flight EVO features 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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    Carbon Leech Mini

    Provide maximum support with minimum weight.

    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.

    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 #5 and 6# (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 #4 - #7 - #8 (Precision Tapered CNC 2-piece Fiberglass tube).

    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.

    Visual Trimming System

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

    Batten Chafe Protection

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

    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.

    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).
