GUN SAILS TECHNIKA
For very easy packing away and storage: Just roll the sail up and fix the elastic retainer.
Our sail designer Renato Morlotti pays special attention to the choice of the right sail materials to ensure the longevity of your sail.
For the 2006 line, we used two new x-ply versions, especially the large sail windows are provided with close meshed material for even more durability.
Sails like the Hammer, Wave MC and Target that are significantly stressed, are equipped with large insignia patches which are also part of the new, characteristic design.
BOOM OPENING STIFFENER
Monofilm added to the mast sleeve of the boom opening keeps it slightly opened for an easy threading of the mast into the luff pocket.
SBS SYMMETRICAL BATTEN SYSTEM
At all camless sails the batten above the boom section is positioned on the opposite side of the sail. In this way, a well-balanced tension is gained on both sides of the sail, especially on the area with the most profile.
The clew is especially reinforced, as it ranks to the stressed zones, and is also protected with a PVC edging.
Our sails have either one, two or three clew eyelets, depending on the range of use.
RUBBER TOP PROTECTION
A solid rubber protection at the sail top avoids abrasion.
Easy adjusting of the vario top is guaranteed by the special strap. A further feature is the neoprene-covered buckle
A continuous PVC edging from the leech up to the clew protects your sail edge from abrasion while in contact with your board.
In addition to that, a special webbing is also sewn along the edges to spare the monofilm material and the seams.
The seams in the upper sail parts are covered by an internal sewed dacron patch.
The new Thermofoam mast foot protector can be pulled back while rigging. It offers best protection for the mast, as well as for the board and the rider.
With the additional strap it is very easy to pull the sail over the mast.
The wave sails Hammer and Wave MC as well as the Mega X line are equipped with a low profile triple pulley tack and all other models with an eyelet.
The new ITB (Internal Trim Batten) is now completely integrated into the batten pocket. The aerodynamics of the leech are improved and the battens can be kept tensioned in the sail all the time. The fine tuning can be done with the enclosed hexagon key.
Super lightweight mini battens, made out of several layers of monofilm, take control of the leech while twisting and avoid aggravating leech fluttering.
In this way, the window fabrics are spared and the longevity of the sail is predefined.
WEAR OUT STOP
PVC tabs on the end of the batten pockets prevent wearing out and abrasion whilst rigging.
For our camber sails, we use special ball or roller bearing cambers for a soft rotation and easy mast insertion.
Each camber has a special shape and diameter, well-adapted for its position and guarantees an optimum fitting.
