Ease-of-use in the "PATRIK"-way. We carefully selected a no-compromise light but durable construction especially for our freeride sail range.
The luff panel is a 2.5 MIL x/scrim-ply which loads gently but is more robust and higher load resistant compared to the dacron.
The sail bottom part is made of 5 MIL x-ply material to give good protection against impacts without compromising the weight too much. The main window is a solid and thick 5 MIL monofilm which provides best combo between visibility, impact resistance and weight. All these things should still be combined with a good shape stability, which is a key factor in this area (main power of the sail). For the top part of the sail, we chose a 4 MIL blue tinted monofilm, which is lighter and adds UV-resistance where you don't need to see through.
As a further bonus, we chose a clear 5 MIL x-ply and blue 5 MIL x-ply along leech and top panel, to add a touch of wear resistance to the area which is always stressed while rigging and rolling the sail.
The ride on a foil sail needs to be smooth and easy otherwise the changing power load will get you out of balance and into trouble. So make sure to put enough downhaul as indicated by the change of colour on the batten sleeves. Use the outhaul to select the amount of backhand power you prefer according to your size and body weight. Use the lower clew position in strong winds or when feeling overpowered.

"This sail incorporates all our knowledge gained with out slalom foil sails. We're proud of the result. Transferring most of the locked and controlled feeling of our FoilS2 into a non-camber design has been a challenge but even with the first prototyp we knew that we ca do it. Feel it for yourself. There isn't any better and easier foil sail out there."
