HYBRID - ULTIMATE ALLROUNDER
- SIZES: 3.7 / 4.2 / 4.7 / 5.2 / 5.6 / 6.0 / 6.4 / 6.7 / 7.2 / 7.7 / 8.2
The ultimate convertible sail range. A high-performance quiver designed to get you on the water having fun no matter what the conditions.
Windsurfers looking for just one sail range to cover all their sailing from high wind waves to light wind flatwater. A sail width huge wind range in all kind of condition and always great fun to use.
The ultimate convertible range, the Hybrid is rich in design features. For 2018, Gaastra took this design concept to a new level and have created a completely integrated high performance sail with each size changing in design for the appropriate wind conditions. One range that will finally cover all conditions from wave to freeride without losing any performance.
The smaller sizes from 3.7 to 4.7 perform like a power wave sail. Control, early planing and maneuverability for the windiest days and when the waves appear. Four batten designs with Full X-Ply HD window and fiberglass battens provide maximum performance and durability.
The middle of the range from 5.2 to 6.4 progresses into a classic 5 batten bump and jump profile replacing our successful well-known Cross range from previous seasons. The sail is fast, stable and powerful the perfect choice for when conditions start to become a little less consistent. High performance Glass and Tube battens in the sail centre produce the perfect profile for stability and performance when conditions get tougher and the full X-Ply HD window makes the sail extremely durable.
In the largest sizes 6.7 to 8.2, the full 6 batten profile of a freeride sail will offer speed and performance to win every match race. A combination of Tube and Glass battens and full profile maximize freeride power allowing you to make the most of the lighter days on the water. It´s a real full power freeride machine.
The all new Hybrid takes windsurfing to a new level. You can invest in a minimum number of sails to maximize performance in all conditions.
REINFORCEMENT BATTEN POCKET
Light and durable reinforced area, to help protect against all types of wear and tear!
Very light and durable for the perfect trim.
The GA Vario top will not slip. Designed for maximum performance the GA vario top is easy to use and strong enough for the PWA. With set and forget system that means you only have to adjust it once. It also features:
- VARIO POCKET - A simple pocket on the top of the luff sleeve allows to store away any excess webbing from your Vario Strap. No more flapping Vario Tops in the 2018 GA Sails range.
- VARIO PROTECT - This little add-on for the top cap on the Vario Tops protects the adjustable webbing from breaking down from wear and tear on rough ground.
To get the best possible colour for the longest possible time, GA has invested heavily in their film over the past season. The result is an outstanding colour that won't fade no matter what you do to it.
In order to be able to reduce the weight of the sails, Gaastra developed a completely new range of laminate materials with a much thinner film supported by a double structure of fibers - a balanced scrim of fibers orientated in the warp that fit within a classic X-Ply angled series of fibers. From its structure, the name 2-Ply arose. GA has created a complex woven web with the highest durability that is also very lightweight. Besides the proven X-Ply, they use this laminate in the upper sail body to achieve minimal swing weight and protection of critical areas.
- Less weight: use of new 2-PLY laminate reduces the weight in the top area of the sail by more than 10%.
- Softer handling for better performance and comfort in gusts
- Better strain value for perfect profile and shape in the long-term
- Better UV resistance due to a thinner film
- Used in crucial sail areas for best response, maneuverability and minimal swing weight.
MAST SLEEVE OPENING
The GA Silicon patch above the boom cutout opens the mast pocket just a little, allowing the rider to insert the mast with just one hand, without having to move up the luff.
A redesign that makes the fold flow much easier. It is clean and just how it needs to be: Perfection!
