Advanced Skyblade designs carry Loftsails racing pedigree into the world of foiling competition.
Foils generate significantly less drag when compared to fin setups. During flight, the pilot requires speed and precision control. To take full advantage of the low-drag foil setup, Skyblade is designed around a notably high aspect ratio and a reduced leech. This outline is held by a rigid 7 batten, 4 cam frame to create a super-stable foiling machine.
For 2023, the sail profile was further fine-tuned to be slimmer in the back section thus generating more forward drive and better acceleration. A reduced top batten, and a slight increase to the aspect ratio, provides stability to balance the additional power.
The Skyblade line-up is expanded and features new sizes: 6.1, 5.2, 4.3 The new sizes are optimised for strong wind, high speed foiling.
Skyblade construction features x-ply panels for the central window, leech and foot; and bi-ply top panels for extreme UV-resistance. The sails are built to survive both on and off the racecourse.
The 3-layer mast pocket is built using a 2-mil quad axial x-ply. This material is super lightweight and has no folding memory, which helps to maintain the luff in optimum condition.
Additionally, all cambers inducer contact points use Metallic Cam Interfaces to prevent material degradation over time.
Internal vertical and horizontal Kevlar strip applications define profile and augments stability
