Robert Stroj, NeilPryde’s designer, introduces the first sail of their 2011 Collection…
Solid Power with Lightweight Efficiency.
Robert Stroj – Designer:
With the new Atlas we created a wave sail that has constant power, upwind drive and plenty of acceleration – all crucial in onshore conditions.
Our focus during development was to achieve all of the above while keeping the Atlas feeling smooth and forgiving, as a wave sail should feel.
We achieved our goal with a compact outline for improved control and tight lower/mid leech for upwind performance and low-end power; positive outhaul tension which smoothes twist keeps the profile stable and releases power when needed.
4.0, 4.2, 4.5, 4.7, 5.0, 5.4, 5.8, 6.2
For 2011 we are also introducing a new printing technology bringing a new world of color to our sail range.
This new technology, making use of a roller printer, allows us to print the films prior to lamination. This gives us the flexibility to use multi-colored designs and as the printing is on the inside of the film there is no need to worry about it coming off.
If you like what you see you’re going to love what they do!
