The Oxygen has lungs – it’s alive – and breathes like no other sail! 

With the pace and response of a full-on slalom rig this no-cam profile rivals all but the best for outright speed and screaming reaches that will blow your mind. 

So, unless you only race downwind, overpowered, why would you ever want cams anyway? Year after year of magazine tests confirm the pedigree and how the Oxygen’s enormous tuning range delivers incredible control in a high variety of conditions for a permanently easy, efficient ride.

For 2016 the forward batten taper has been tuned for extra depth and reactivity across a wider band of use.

Pro Tip

  • OXYGEN
    "The way the Oxygen twists and always stays beautifully balanced makes it a dream to use. Adjust downhaul if required - but keep some shape with the outhaul"

  • OXYGEN
    "The Oxygen is a great allround sail. Easy to waterstart and gybe with it's narrow luff sleeve and no-cam rotational design. The real surprise is just how stable the thing is, that just blew me away. Drag racing with Monty, I just could not get it to wig out on me. If I had to have only one sail for summer fun, this would be the one"

FAQ

Will older versions of Loftsails masts be compatible with newer models of Loftsails sails - and vice versa?

Loftsails IMCS mast bend-curve specs have been consistently produced across the range since 2000. The current production technique and component materials have remained unchanged since 2007, so all Loftsails masts and sails produced since then are fully compatible.
