SUPER_HERO 2024 - Unleash your potential
LOOK NO FURTHER - THE WAVE SAIL FOR ANY CONDITION AND RIDER WEIGHT. THE CENTERED DRAFT POSITION MAKES THE SUPER_HERO THE MOST NEUTRAL WAVE SAIL OUT THERE.
When designing the 2024 Wave x Freestyle Collection, the concept was “Plug and Shred”. We want you to be on the water as fast as possible with the least amount of hassle, in the widest range of conditions. The SUPER_HERO has always been at the forefront of this philosophy and the changes we have made for 2024 amplify this concept.
For SS24, we have refined the SUPER_HERO to optimise the performance in all conditions. With the SIZE SPECIFIC DRAFT POSITION, sails in sizes 5.0 and larger have a slightly higher draft position to facilitate earlier planning and a lighter feel. Yet in the smaller sizes, the lower, more central draft position remains to give maximum control. This is why the SUPER_HERO remains THE ultimate World Cup Wave sail, which always works optimally in all wave conditions around the globe.
The SUPER_HERO continues to ride very smoothly, is as responsive as a 3-batten sail in float and ride conditions yet has real bite at the decisive moment. The SUPER_HERO is direct when pumping, planes early, develops real drive on the wave, is stable and offers this special neutrality for superior control thanks to its SIZE SPECIFIC DRAFT POSITION.
We have continued to pursue our LIGHT DONE RIGHT CONSTRUCTION, which in 2022 saw a modified panel layout, reinforcement patches with high-strength high-modulus fibres „Made in Germany“ and a new mast sleeve construction, designer Kai Hopf achieved a weight reduction of a clearly noticeable 200 to 300g! Unlike other brands, the thickness of the fabric and film used was not been reduced and thus the well-known durability of the SUPER_HERO is fully maintained! That‘s exactly why we call it LIGHT DONE RIGHT CONSTRUCTION.
Every single size of the SUPER_HERO is perfectly tuned and matured down to the last detail. The batten rotation remains buttery smooth even with minimal clew tension and the top works very actively, swallows hard gusts and supports acceleration. Therefore, you can confidently choose to ride a smaller size than many other wave sails.
»For me the Super_Hero is the ultimate wave sail. In underpowered float and ride conditions the range is unbelievable, yet it remains stable and very controlled in every situation - in all wave conditions, all over the world.«
THE SUPER_HERO IN A NUTSHELL:
Your wave sail for any conditions!
The SUPER_HERO has it all: unbeatable handling, neutrality, and the lowest weight without sacrificing durability. We can truly claim that it is the most versatile wave sail with the widest possible wind range that we have ever built. That‘s why we recommend it unreservedly for all conditions and all rider weights!
For the SUPER_HERO 2024, we've made these enhancements:
Size-specific draft position so that each size is optimised for the demands of the conditions it is used in
Sizes 5.0 and upwards have been modified to adapt to this size-specific philosophy to allow for earlier planning and a lighter feeling in the hands
Size 3.4 has been refined to give even more stability and control in higher wind conditions
All sizes are also available in HD construction
