Echo

The all-new Echo debuts as a no-compromise sail for those who demand the best dedicated trickster on the market. This sail is designed for those who push the limits of freestyle and forge a new standard for our sport. The latest edition features an even more compact outline, flatter foot batten profiles, a tight leech, and ample luff curve down low.

Unlock massive flat-water tricks by tapping into the custom membrane’s limitless pop. The ultra-light HD Membrane Matrix locks profiles, yet delivers and easy breathing feel. Compared to previous iterations, the Dacron luff panel has been narrowed up, while luff curves have been updated to give maximum drive and acceleration. A straight-cut foot outline, and improved trajectory mapping, keep the head and leech properly supported. The new sails have the perfect amount of profile to get you rolling, and an amazing ability to snap flat when unloaded. Put this altogether with a brand-new lamination standard, and you have something truly remarkable.

Avanti Sails Echo 2

New in 2019

Totally new designed Echo features tighter leech which allow for the sail to feel more as one unit with more response and feedback to the rider.

80% reduction of bottom batten curvature. Allowing the sail to go even more neutral than on previous models.

High Cut Foot The trailing end of the foot batten sits along a Illustrator line from boom end to tack. This means free and easy duck moves and comfortable handling during a freestyle manoeuvre.

No Sock Center Seam. A feature that Avanti has been using for years on our race sails has now found its way to the Echo. The seamless luff sock. No stitching to be ripped by the mast, and an improved geometry over the mast.

Dacron Luff Panel. To get unrivaled pop out of the rig, the Echo utilizes a narrow Dacron luff panel in concert with a membrane leech plate. The Dacron allows our freestyle sail to sit flat, and eases transitions during aggressive moves.

Performance & Durability

Narrower Dacron Panel. In 2019, a narrower dacron panel was done in order to tame its power and extend the wind range.

Rainbow Batten Trajectories. Rainbow Batten Trajectories minimize pocket stretch and ensure rigged symmetry.

Anti-Abrasion. Anti-Abrasion Silicon Bumpers prevent unnecessary wear. MicroLight Batten Tensioners provide balanced skin tension.

Hotspot Trajectories. Extra fiber density on centenary between clew and focal point of luff curve keep shape from migrating upward.

Helix Leech Plys. Sine wave leech reinforcements minimize cyclical flexing along any given line and extend toughness against flutter degradation.

Advanced Fibers

GemTone Fiber. Enriches color weight and vibrancy on the water and ensures sails that are lighter, stronger, and more durable than the competition.

Updated Fiber Map. HotSpot clew to luff trajectories keep shape locked low and forward.

Maximum Weight Reduction

Ultra lightweight. Feather Weight Construction puts this sail’s weight 15-20% under industry standard.

Visibility. Cobra Vision Window yields good visibility while maintaining the integrity of the membrane in critical high-stress areas.

Lightweight Components

Nylatron Tack Pulley. Super lightweight ‘Nylatron’ tack pulley wheels save weight and allow easy downhauling.

Kevlar Reinforced Fairings. Reinforced head and tack fairings give maximum durability against abrasion.

Sail Foot

Extended Toughness

  • Helix Leech Plys minimize cyclical flexing along a given line and extend toughness of leech.
  • Teijin 8083 luff sleeve material gives excellent durability and repels water.
