Introducing the new 2021/22 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.
