“The ultimate World Cup racing sail. Radical, incredibly fast and yet still manageable even by the less experienced thanks to its unrivaled soft cam rotation. Due to the new three-stage SIZESPECIFIC.DESIGN all WARP F2015s are designed to be more individual than ever before to match the specific wind conditions:
1. 6.3 and smaller are designed for maximum high-end stability and v-max, to avoid the sail from becoming unstable and moving around even in extreme gusts.
2. Thanks to the LUFF.LIFT.DESIGN all sizes from 7.0 and up have an increased lift to generate instant ! power and acceleration when sheeting in or during pumping.
3. On the 8.4 and up the pre-shaping has been increased whilst the luff curve got reduced. This leads to even more low-end power and clearly more efficient pumping ability.
Totally new is the adjustment of the POWER.CONTROL.RATIO. Starting from the competition weight of the ideal PWA Slalom Racers (90-100 kg) all WARP F2015s have the optimum balance between maximum acceleration and optimum control when overpowered.
KEY FEATURES – WHAT’S NEW?
01 AVAILABILITY: 15th of September.
02 SIZESPECIFIC.DESIGN: Thanks to three different, size-dependent concepts each sail size is individually “matched to the wind strength.
03 POWER.CONTROL.RATIO: Optimal ratio between maximum acceleration and optimum control, size specifically adapted to the ideal PWA Racer (90 – 100 kg).
04 Shorter softer masts (7.7 and above): Makes the bigger WARP F2015 become more flexible, which makes the “extra power easier to control and less physical!
