Fenix

For 2019, Avanti re-masters the Fenix in a sharp green and white combo. The HD Membrane Matrix features and all new base film and a lamination built to exacting tolerances. This product has set the industry standard, and this latest iteration builds on its rich legacy of World Wave performance.

The Fenix offers the best on/off characteristics of any sail for pure wave sailing. Sail profiles fill-in when you need drive and deflate to neutral during man oeuvres, making this range an absolute client favorite. The Fenix is all about the wave, and nothing but the wave. From the stormy onshore beaches of northern Europe, to glorious side-off conditions in the tropics, nothing quite covers the range of conditions with as much fluidity. We find this to be the best choice for modern waveboards, where extra drive is often desired from one’s sail choice.

Avanti Sails Fenix 2

New in 2019

Clean leech with the right amount of tension, keeping the sail very reactive to rider input and balanced.

Neutral shaping on the bottom batten, the Fenix goes into perfect OFF when sail is kept open only to inflate when power is wanted.

HD Membrane Matrix. Slightly thicker film gauges and robust fiber mapping provide maximum strength and durability.

Batten Count. Primary sail sizes set on a four batten layout providing just the right balance of skeletal structure. Large sizes benefit from a fifth batten for added stability.

Dacron Luff Panel. Wavesail performance is closely linked to overall rig elasticity. A Dacron luff panel provides an easy breathing feel. Rig the sail with a tighter leech, and still benefit from a reactive leech whether landing a back loop, or making an aggressive cutback.

Head Loading. Improved string mapping keeps the sail head under constant load ensuring the twist and drive of the sail is always under control and in place.

Performance & Durability

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
