A lifetime of PWA World Titles, IFCA World Titles and World Speed Records.
Completely redesigned for 2023, our most technologically advanced Slalom sail ever. Designed from the ground up with our new state-of-the-art 3D design software. Entire sail is modeled in 3D in its actual flying shape with twist and luff curve accounted for. Our quadruple luff panel allows us to align panels with the highest loads. Full carbon battens above the boom offer ultimate performance and weight.
RS:Racing holds more world titles and speed records than any other racing sail over the past 20 years.
4 levels of material make up the luff sleeve to increase strength and load carrying performance in this critical, high-stress area of the sail. This luff sleeve design allows us to carry a maximum amount of downhaul tension and greatly reduces stretch in the luff sleeve area, thus increasing performance.
Since foil sails do not need such an emphasis on control, we were able to reduce the RS:Flight to 6 battens, cutting out un-necessary weight and giving the sail a softer feel and better pumping / gybing abilities.
Battens are laid out in an aerodynamically correct way, taking into account the rake of the sail when sailing. This improves airflow, allows for easier rotation and faster acceleration.
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.
The outline of the RS:Flight is much higher aspect than the RS:Racing outline. This allows the sail to take maximum advantage of every gust and promotes maximum speed and upwind/downwind performance.
Designed purely for foil free-race, RS:Flight takes advantages of design features which are not optimal to use on fin sails due to the need for control and wind release over chop when using a fin. Hence, RS:Flight features all the design advantages listed above to gain maximum performance when used to power a pure foil race board.
