V8 Flight is THE Future of performance free ride foiling, available in all sizes to cover complete wind range from 6-25 knots; developed for riders that want to out-fly the others!
HIGH ASPECT RATIO DESIGN. REFINED.
Foiling requires a very precise technique as it is crucial that the position of the draft stays unchanged to keep the flight stable and uninterrupted.
The very high aspect ratio design of the sail adds efficiency, while keeping profile stability and this way dramatically improves the foiling experience. This specific design makes the sail’s luff longer, therefore allowing for the boom to be shorter, which translates to more control.
Lift is created by the leading edge. On a high aspect sail, the leading edge is much longer relative to the sail size and this extra lift creates a more efficient sail for the rider. One of the major drag components is the tip vortex. On a high aspect ratio sail this is relatively less compared to the overall sail size, hence the effect is minimized.
V8 Flight is rigged with tighter leech compared to conventional V8 freerace sail and provides exceptional performance in light wind; 8.0 on the foil will easily out-plane (or out-fly) any super large free ride sails while it will remain stable and fast even once the wind picks up.
COMPONENT SLEEVE CONSTRUCTION
Combining different materials in the sleeve sections allows us 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 designers 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.
New Integra-cam RDM specific sizes now allow for direct conversion between RDM and SDM mast; RDM cams feature extended body length to compensate the less sleeve space taken by RDM mast and keep all the cam pressure correct despite the smaller mast diameter.
AIRFLOW BATTEN LAYOUT
Angled batten design for streamlined airflow.
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.
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).
Batten tensioner system allowing precise tuning and secured positive locking without the need for tools.
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.
