Excess Speed Guaranteed. Loftsails 2017 Racingblade has several subtle modifications that add up to an extra gear in your slalom performance.
Planche Mag (FRA) awarded the Racingblade 2016 with a 10+ for maximum speed that proves its capability versus rivals. For 2017 the Racingblade has been redesigned with seam curve profiles that shift deeper profiles around the boom area that push in greater low-end power and added acceleration. The new 2017 designs are also more reactive to trim variation. Additionally the 2017 construction places 7-mm. monofilm into the upper rear mast panels (inside the mast pocket) that limits luff elongation to the upper forward sections of the sail. This provides stability and delivers superior performance, especially in maxed conditions.

Extensive side-by-side comparison testing proved that 430 masts delivered superior performance than 460s on the 7.0 Racing Blade. A 460 will result in a stiffer feel in the rig, which may be suitable for heavier riders. A 460 RDM mast may be a step in a softer direction that could also be an option to consider.

Note that the Racing Blade 7.8 and 5.0 have similar recommendations to use masts that might be considered quite short relative to their quoted luff lengths and that the same response as above applies.
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.
