INTRODUCING AN INNOVATIVE RIG DESIGNED AROUND POWER-TO-WEIGHT RATIO
THE POWER OF A BIGGER SAIL WITH THE WEIGHT OF A SMALLER ONE.
Gone are the days when lightwind windsurfing on lakes and calm seas meant massive sails and heavy gear, Take Flight.
Conventional sails are typically flat with power coming from surface area. This sail focuses on power-per-square metre. The result is a compact sail with a very deep profile,a sail with the power of a much bigger sail and the weight of a smaller one.
THE FLIGHT CONCEPT
Rigged on its RDM mast, it is designed to flex and breathe. With regular sails, you choose a size to be overpowered. The sails are still heavy and designed for control when maxed out. With this concept, you choose to be lightly underpowered.
FEEL IT AT EVERY JIBE
The sail’s power will pull you on to the plane and once in flight, you have a light rig in your hands.
Jibing rotation becomes smooth and the instant power helps you plane out of jibes.
Smaller also means less weight for easier handling on land, less sore backs from uphauling. The sail itself is built using ultra-light-weight scrim film and includes an innovative mini- uphaul that velcros itself to the luff sleeve to save weight and to prevent the uphaul from getting tangled.
To optimize the sail, we developed new specific and technical accessories. It makes it the ideal rig for foiling and light wind conditions.
