The S1 is a high performance 4 batten wave sail. A reduced batten count makes this sail light, flexible and responsive. Less structural rigidity gives the rig a bigger sweet-spot, and allows the sail to auto-correct during wave-riding by giving the draft just enough movement to ensure constant power delivery.
Developed on an identical platform as the S-1 Pro, this year’s S-1 replicates the dynamic performance in a more accessible construction.
With it’s 3 or 4 batten interchangeability the S-1 is an extremely versatile wave sail. The convertible batten system means the S-1 can be run as either a 3 or a 4 batten sail depending on conditions and preference. The S-1’s very broad range of appeal is matched only by its wind range.
Shaping is located extremely low and forward in the sail, and with a 4th batten added becomes extremely stable. The dropped clew allows short boom lengths for manoeuvrability and boom rigidity.
Built in quality eM3 materials, SpiderFibre, and with a diamond shaped Dacron luff panel for smooth power delivery, this sail is engineered for performance. Now with eM4 in the lower panels to make the 019 S-1 stronger and lighter.
The S-1 is a manoeuvre oriented wave sail for the modern wave sailor.
This high abrasion area is made from only 1 panel and does not carry any exposed seams, preventing any potential weak point in this area. As a result, seam creep and seam-related failure have been eliminated.
DURABLE AND LIGHTWEIGHT
eM3 is developed to combine the performance of the e-series cloths with maximum durability. The addition of a 90-degree pre preg polyester scrim has provided unique tear resistant characteristics and the off-axis loads are carried through the 22-degree X-ply fibres. The red and new blue adhesive maintain the UV resistance and tear strength, while the reduced film thickness significantly reduces the weight. The use in the upper panels reduces not only the overall sail weight, but also the swing weight, aiding manoeuvrability and control. Used in the BLADE and in the FREEK.
All Severne wave sails have 25mm double stitched window seams. The wider, single colour seam tape ensures maximum tear strength and crash resistance
Protects your board from impact and neatly covers the foot detailing. It incorporates the rope stash pocket for easy storage of your downhaul rope.
A web of fibreglass filament that disburses loads across seams and throughout the body of the sail. By using stronger, lighter fibres and reducing sail patching, we can measurably reduce weight and swing weigh and at the same time, increase strength.
