RS Flight II
NeilPryde designers are extremely excited to introduce the new Flight EVOII to the range. Experience foil racing like nothing before, thanks to the refined high aspect ratio of the sail.
The new 7-batten layout of the sail makes it lighter overall, and dramatically improves its handling especially during maneuvers, which is extremely important in foil racing.
Team made it their mission to equip and design this sail to be the must-have for foil championships and racers that seek nothing more than their next victory. This sail is an evolution of its predecessor, fully delivering on the high aspect ratio needed to speed through your next finish line effortlessly. The Flight EVOII comes in race-ready construction and further optimized the balance of speed and control.
This sail has it all: speed, gracious design, stability and control, and it won’t let you down, no matter if upwind, downwind or reaching.
Quench your thirst for speed with the new Flight EVOII.
QUADRUPLE LUFF PANEL LAYOUT
The Flight EVOII features four continuous, durable, stretch-resistant and lightweight luff panels that carry most of the sail body shaping. This configuration stabilizes the critical section draft position while providing an increased film thickness proportional to downhaul load distribution. Continuous panels eliminate horizontal seams crossing the highly loaded leading edge, which increases response of the sail. Introducing this stable leading edge platform allows very high downhaul loads and integrated clear pocket construction.
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.
LEADING EDGE RIB
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.
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.
