SUPER HERO is THE ultimate wave sail which always performs optimally in all wave conditions around the globe. The perfectly balanced sail is the personal favourite of PWA Wave triple world champion Victor Fernandez and is a real World Cup asset that is designed specifically for wave usage. Thanks to the absolutely neutral and perfectly balanced handling, its calm handling characteristics are unrivalled and it remains stable and highly controlled in every situation. The SUPER HERO feels like a three-batten design combined with the stability of a five-batten one. The specially developed profile blows out very efficiently and produces high propulsion even when underpowered, which is why it’s suitable for almost all riders, regardless of weight.
The SUPER SESSION combines easy handling with a surprisingly immediate riding feel, giving the rider absolute control and confidence in all situations. With the SUPER SESSION, even the more brutal wind and wave conditions can be handled with confidence.
Product Manager Raoul Joa:
«Because the SUPER SESSION is the first true freewave sail, we have given it a crisper and more immediate riding feel than the SUPER HERO.»
The draft position, which is positioned higher and further forward, ensures a crisp, immediate and yet extremely light riding feel.
XPLY PLUS(100/150 microns): The laminate with the lowest stretch and the best UV and puncture resistance on the market
TRI PLYfoot panel (150 microns): The added third thread line boosts the fabric’s ripstop properties by 30%.
HOLLOW LOWER LEECHwith additional MINI BATTEN: This stabilises the profile above the boom and prevents leech flutter.
Low weight thanks to the WEIGHT-OPTIMISED PANEL LAYOUT
MINIMUM MAST CONCEPT: Two masts are suitable for all sail sizes.
Top performance with RDM masts, yet compatible with our SDM masts as well
Light – lighter – a radically lightweight sail. The IDOL LTD is the completely personalised pro model of freestyle record world champion Gollito Estredo. Boasting incredible handling characteristics, the sail was created by designer Kai Hopf, implementing all the desires of the rider himself. The result is the most highly developed and extreme freestyle sails that we have ever manufactured in series. All sizes are sensationally lightweight because the innovative and high-tech laminate ODL and the 100-micron ULTRA FILM were used instead of the usual XPLY material. These materials are 50% lighter than previous sailcloths, which makes the IDOL LTD weigh about as much as a 1.5 m² smaller SUPER HERO (e.g. 4.8 and 3.4).
«The somewhat narrower top and the lower position of the batten above the boom gives the new IDOL LTD even more lift and control when I’m doing all of my manoeuvres.»
CONVEX DACRON LUFF-PANEL: Maximum elasticity without distortion of the battens enables maximum lift for all jumps from lee position.
HOLLOW LOWER LEECH with additional MINI BATTEN: This stabilises the profile above the boom and prevents leech flutter.
The additional RADIAL LOAD STRIPES in the clew improve profile stability and extend the wind range.
With the use of the finest high-tech materials (ODL laminates, 100-micron ULTRA FILM) this is our most lightweight freestyle sail ever.
An extra-high clew and short boom enable the quickest diving manoeuvres without loss of speed.
