NEIL PRYDE SAIL SYSTEM RANGE CHART SAIL

SIZE

CAMS SPECIALIST USE

The Signature Wavesail of Bjorn Dunkerbeck. The most powerful of the wave sails, the Search has been formulated around the virtues of the 12 X World Champion: Power, Stability, and Consistency. For the sailors who demand extra power in their wavesails in their quest to tear it up in all conditions.

3.9 / 4.2 4.5 / 4.7 5.0 / 5.4 5.8 / 6.2

0

Wave

The Signature Wavesail of Jason Polakow. Specifically designed to match the radical wave sailing style of Jason who vehemently demands the sail to react to his every whim. Flatter than the Search, but more powerful than the Core, the Zone is light, powerful, but most of all maneuverable.

3.3 / 3.7 4.1 / 4.4 4.7 / 5.0 5.3 / 5.7

0

Wave

The Signature Wavesail of Josh Stone. The lightest of the three wavesails specifically designed for the light to medium weight wave and freestyle sailors. With only four battens and an even lower aspect ratio than the Zone, it is the most forgiving of all the wavesails.

2.9 / 3.3 3.7 / 4.1 4.4 / 4.7 5.1 / 5.4 5.7 / 6.2

0

Wave/Freestyle

The sail of choice of Freestyle World Champion Antoine Albeau. The Expression has been designed to provide very early planing power with the balance and control needed for sophisticated maneuvers. The Experience is a full on freestyle sail also ideal for wave sailing in moderate conditions.

4.2 / 4.7 5.2 / 5.7 6.2 / 6.7 7.2

0

Freestyle Wave

The versatile crossover sail. Specifically oriented for flat-water cruising or flat water maneuvers. Designed to provide the top end speed and control for flat water blasting with the low end and stability needed for freestyle.

4.9 / 5.4 5.9 / 6.4 6.9 / 7.4

0

Freemove

The classic, lightweight, easy to use freeride sail. With a wide wind range and favored performance in the low end. This no cam sail handles smoothly in the gybes and has the softest feel of the flatwater sails. A lower cut foot than the RAF Jet for speed and earlier planing, flatter shape for control.

4.0 / 4.5 5.0 / 5.5 6.0 / 6.5 7.0 / 7.5

0

Freeride

The recreational sail with the widest wind range on flat water. With the use of two intercams and stiffer battens, the sail has a deep but stable profile for early planing and fast, controllable speeds.

5.4 / 6.1 6.7 / 7.3 7.9 / 8.5

2

Freeride

Our no-cam freerace sail. The Diablo is perfect for sailors looking for race sail performance without the hassle of cams. With a longer boom than the slalom sails, but shorter than the pure racing sails for optimum reaching speed / upwind performance ratio.

6.4 / 6.9 7.4 / 7.9 8.4

0

Freerace

The multi cam freerace sail with one of the widest wind ranges in the flat water line up. The V8 comes with a longer boom than the slalom sails, but shorter than the pure racing sails for optimum reaching speed / upwind performance ratio. With the deepest profile of all the sails in the NP range it has exceptional early planing capabilities.

NEIL PRYDE SAIL TECHNOLOGY

Kevlar™ SP Leech Construction A lightweight and ultra strong leech construction using Kevlar X-Ply for stability and durability applied specifically in the areas where monofilm directly meets the leech.

Integrated Mini Leech Composite Battens Flat aerodynamic composite mini battens sewn directly into the upper sections of the sail for added stability and durability to the leech without a significant increase in weight.

Batwing Leech Technology Leech design cutting away excess material to reduce unnecessary leech flutter.

Multi Position Clew Multiple clew positions to allow tuning for a variety of conditions and sailor heights.

Microlite Batcams A lightweight aerodynamic batten tensioning system.

Leech Chafe Protection Buttons Buttons strategically placed in the leech area to reduce the wear and tear associated with rigging on rough surfaces.

Chain Lock Patch Construction A unique construction technique designed to increase strength and save weight by using load line specific reinforcing. By replacing the traditional 5 layers of material with reinforced load

lines, the areas of the clew that take the strain when under pressure, and then cutting out the excess material between them, we’ve actually managed to increase the strength of the clew while reducing its’ weight.

Flexible Aerodynamic Kevlar Foot Fairing Aerodynamic chafe and impact protection utilizing neoprene and Kevlar for durability and flexibility.

Triple Roller Tack Fitting Solid metal tack fitting with three rollers for ease of downhaul.


SAIL SPECIFIC FEATURES*

Luffglide Luffpocket Material This material provides superior durability and stretch characteristics, and a slippery surface that facilitates the insertion of the mast into the luffpocket as well as the rotation of the sail.

Supercam II Wide shouldered cams providing ample support area for superior leading edge development and draft stability combined with soft rotation.

Cam Pressure Adjustment System An innovative system using molded spacers that allow sailors to perfectly adjust the pressure on the cambers to fit their individual needs to reach optimum performance. Because

not every sailor is the same size or needs the same amount of cam pressure, and because sails are not rigid structures and stretch throughout their life, this system allows the sailor to always have the perfect mast/sail tuning.

Component Luffpocket Construction A Luffpocket construction technique used in cam sails that provides a low friction material in the cam area to facilitate camber rotation, and a stretch resistant lightweight material in the top to reduce swing weight and stabilize sail entry. Neil Pryde Component Batten System A sail and size specific draft placement batten system that permits us to place the draft exactly where we want it for individual sizes and models. This optimizes the sails for their given design guidelines and specifications. By using tube / rod combinations with varying stiffness and bend characteristics of tubes and rods, we are able to exactly match our design specifications to the sails. CNC Tapered Rod Battens Precisely tapered computer controlled heavy duty batten system Flexhead Configuration A flexible head configuration with the use of a tube/rod component batten which allows the head of the sail to adjust dynamically to the wind by allowing twist along the horizontal and vertical axes.

Tube Specific Batten Tension Adjustment System Tube specific adjuster that creates a marked weight reduction compared to last year’s system with an increased adjustment range.

Rounded Head Configuration A Heavy Duty construction configuration with minimal drag combined with maximum surface twist. * As listed for each individual sail.
