RS Racing Evo XII
The RS:RACING EVOXII is more than an evolution from its predecessor, it is a step towards a new design, fully embracing the high aspect design designers introduced in Flight series.
With racing competition formats and courses evolving towards a mix of Slalom and Foiling, we want to be sure to be ahead of the game, ensuring the new RS:RACING EVOXII performs equally well on fin as on foil. The EVOXII features a moderate high aspect ratio, where the larger sail sizes have a relatively higher aspect ratio than the smaller sail sizes. This design ensures that also the smaller sizes have that extra lift and efficiency, allowing the rider to get the maximum out of the sail.
Thanks to the high aspect ratio, we could eliminate the the larger sizes from the range, as the 9.0 will perform in the same way as a 9.4 in lighter winds. The high aspect ratio especially impacts the luff length and boom size needed per sail. The bigger the sail, the more pronounced is its high aspect ratio, meaning that the bigger size sails will need smaller booms in relation.
The RS:RACING EVOXII will come with new sizes and larger gaps in between, as we have improved the wind range; meaning we can cover wider wind ranges with less sizes. RS:RACING EVOXII – the art of racing, made for you.
PROGRESSIVE HIGH ASPECT RATIO DESIGN
With the 2020 series of the RS: Racing EVO are introducing the high aspect ratio design that could already be found on the flight Evo. While the high aspect ratio is much more defined on the bigger sail sizes, it is less so defined on the smaller sizes. Thanks to this progressive high aspect ratio design, we are fully leveraging this design’s benefits. The sails become equally controllable on foil as well as on fin.
COMPONENT SLEEVE CONSTRUCTION
Combining different materials in the sleeve sections allows designers to achieve optimum profile entry stability and elasticity, smooth rotation and light weight.
By removing any stitching that could come in contact with the mast team created a seamless leading edge. This increases precision during the assembly process, reducing weight at the leading edge and creating a perfectly clean profile entry to eliminate construction weak spots.
Lightweight TetoronTM Upper-front section (1) offers the necessary elasticity and durability to resist direct mast contact.
A low stretch DyneemaTM Armour Web section (2) can take high downhaul tension and is critical in stabilizing the profile entry, providing smooth bridging between UltraCams.
A tapered strip of TetoronTM along the back edge of the sleeve (3) where it connects to the sail body is used to provide the necessary elasticity in this area together with improved durability.
The bottom part of the sleeve is finished in our durable and elastic Luff Glide material (4) allowing for important smooth rotation.
TWIST SHAPING CONCEPT
Just like its predeccesors, the sail twist allows more release, so you feel like you have gained an extra gear. The EVOXII opens instantly, gaining that moment of acceleration when going through a gust, feeling much more stable and preventing the center of effort from moving back in the sail.
The result is reduced backhand pressure that gives smooth acceleration boosts in gusts.
MAST SLEEVE WINDOW
Clear window in the mast sleeve for better visibility during racing. Especially when arriving at the first buoys. This was the most required feature from team riders to improve racing.
CARBON LEECH MINI BATTENS
Provide maximum support with minimum weight.
VISUAL TRIMMING SYSTEM
Downhaul tension guide. Max. and Min. Recommended leech release points. Located on the upper leech between battens #2 and #3.
DUAL BOOM LENGTH COMPACT CLEW
Has been slightly improved and redesigned to avoid contact of sail edge body with the boom. Outer and inner clew position straight alignment. Retains same clew height and boom to mast rake on both clew positions, reduces weight and prevents rear part of the foot touching the water when jibing.
CARBON COMPOSITE BATTENS
Carbon tubes are placed in the central section of the sail body, adding extra stability and preventing the profile from moving back. The lightness of carbon battens minimize the swing weight which increases the reflex of the leech which is something really unique in this sail.
Starting from the Top;
#1 - #2
(Single RDM Fiberglass tube)
(Single RDM Carbon tube)
#4 and #5
(Precision Tapered CNC 2-piece Carbon tube).
#6 - #7
(Precision Tapered CNC 2-piece Fiberglass tube).
Besides the Carbon tubes in the central section of the sail, additional Fiberglass tubes offer extra durability in areas more exposed to crashes.
The progressive flex creates a deeper profile, essential in generating low end power and upwind performance.
Batten tensioner system allowing precise tuning and secured positive locking without the need for tools. Starting from the Top: #1 - #2 - #3 (Mini lightweight Batcams combined with tension adjuster set), #4 - #5 (Batcams combined with tension adjuster set) and #6 - #7 (Batcams combined with tube screw adjuster and Allen key for an extra tension system).
Allowing easy rigging through loop to loop system and optimized adjustable outhaul function that reduces the friction and eliminates any crossing lines (crucial when using adjustable outhaul system).
Suspended camber system improves sail rotation and acceleration out of jibes. Simultaneous tuning of battens and cambers makes sail tunable for different mast diameters and camber pressure.
Overlapping body panels create a sleeve for battens, eliminating the need for traditional, separate batten pockets. This saves on unnecessary weight, simplifies construction and creates a fully symmetrical batten cavity, delivering a fully equal sail on both tacks.
KEVLAR BATTEN BRIDGES
To distribute the high downhaul load crossing the battens.
AERODYNAMIC BOOM CUTOUT CLOSURE
Prevents the apparent wind from blowing into the mast sleeve and generating drag.
BATTEN CHAFE PROTECTION
Abrasion resistant PU print to help protect the battens from damage caused by rigging or boom contact.
