Features
& Benefits

  • Tube battens – Stability for the upper end of the wind range
  • Slick Tekcam2 rotation. (Tekcam2 Large for SDM also supplied) – Easy cam rotation makes your windsurfing experience more enjoyable.
  • Metallic cam interfaces – MCIs eliminate contact point degradation characteristic of cam designs without MCIs
  • Centered battens in X-Ply sleeves. (Alternate pocket sides) – Using similar material for the batten pocket as the body material minimizes asymmetric character of Dacron batten pocket construction that, due to Dacron stretch, allows the batten to stay on the sail side. Pockets made with laminate pockets force the batten to stay centered. This is important to keep the sail symmetrical. If all batten pockets are Dacron, and mounted on the same side of the sail, the sail will want to stay on one tack more than the other, rotate to one side easier than rotation to the other side. Loftsails X-Ply batten pockets that alternate sides limit asymmetric character.
  • Streamlined neoprene boom cutout with dual zippers – limits water entry into the mast sleeve during falls, keeping the rig light for a fast recovery
  • Unique, super durable full IYU250 4-part mast-pocket construction – The perfect material between your mast and the elements
  • Exclusive 3.5-mm. Biax upper body panels – Resists damage from impacts and UV and reduce weight
  • 5-mm. Triax-laminate foot panels – For steadier handling and added drive in turns
