Poweride

Introducing the new 2019 Poweride V2. Compact, comfortable, and super fast, the latest no-cam offering further optimizes our RAF speedster in a completely new layout. Borrowing from our Streamline Sail Design philosophy, the V2 sets up with a traditional cross-batten position, and upper battens that are raked aggressively to stay in-line with airflow. We also debut new Scalloped Luff Trajectories in our membrane whose clever positioning build shape forward and reduce distortion. This new Poweride is clean, fast, and unequaled in handling.

As an avid user of no cam sails at my home spot in Garda, I have been especially involved in the development of this sail range. To me, the very reason for using no cam sails is the overall sailing comfort. Of course I’m hooked as well at going fast! The sails must feel light in the hand, sit balanced over the board and allow for the user to sail for hours without effort. We tuned up the feel of each size, and got a lot of stability into the rig with our updates, including the new Scalloped Luff Trajectories. Bringing the cross batten closer to the clew eyelets also gave us a better structure, particularly in light or negative outhaul modes. More smiles, less teeth grinding.

Objectives

– New sail sizes to match market feedback and typical quiver choices.
– Design sails to excel on a wide array of board types from easy freeride to slalom.
– Increase body stability by utilizing a cross-batten position in close proximity to the clew.
– Add grunt and power to the bigger sizes through luff curve improvements.

Twist Dynamics. Each sails size has an upgrade the overall twist profile. The scooped twist flow works in harmony with the skeleton to give the sails and easy breathing feel over a tremendous wind range.

Foot Batten Particulars. To improve rotation of the sail, foot cup has been slightly reduced to allow easier sail body rotation. Rather than kicked up, the foot and cross batten angles remain standard. Keeping this orientation, slightly more perpendicular to the foot edge, adds stability and reduces foot perimeter bounce in chop.

Performance & Durability

Flow Aligned Battens. The new Streamlined Design features a fanned batten layout. This new batten layout reduces drag and increases acceleration, while maintaining the stability of a more traditional cross batten position.

Scalloped Luff Trajectories. Scalloped luff trajectories push profile into batten fronts, locking shape low and forward. To compliment the new design, a complete new string pattern was mapped to maintain stability and overall response from the rig.

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.

– No Sock Center Seam. Our single piece leading edge sock panel with no center sock seam reduces turbulence and adds durability.

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.

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.

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.
