About the sail
Lift, LOT’S OF POP, short boom, high base, and straight profiled battens, lightweight! These were the requests from our freestylers. To meet the requirements of the team a large Dacron panel was introduced into a four batten construction, to create earlier planning and more pop in the sail. The straight profile in the top of the sail combined with a tight leech allows for super easy ducking of the sail and back winded tricks. No gimmicks has been invented or stitched onto the sail- The team requested the most functional freestyle sail possible with a slashed down weight to have no holds for pulling the fastest and highest moves.
This winter, together with Nicolas Akgazciyan, we butchered the Slash to achieve the new 2G evolution. Two new sizes, 4.0 and 5.6 are added to complete the range. The clew is lowered and the boom shortened in order for the sail to be ducked more comfortably. The base is now cut even straighter to give total freedom when ducking. The sail head is reduced drastically keep the top part of the sail more stable and light during all sorts of manoeuvres. The mast Dacron panel is now wider and centred perfectly to contrast the push and weight of the rider to get the max pop. The sail has become a toy to play with in all conditions. If parts were in excess, they have been removed to make the Slash become the most responsive freestyle sail available.
- Straight profile for throwing the sail into the wind
- Loads of rotation along the mast sleeve for more pop
- Tight cut leech for more stability and power during air time
- Light build
- Dacron panel next to mast sleeve giving extra profile to float more in the air
- Straight cut base outline for better under the sails moves
- Full Xply monofilm
I’ve been freestyling many years and entering the top five of the PWA freestyling ranking.
One of the reason of joining the Black Team and Point-7 was because I knew that the riders were followed and considered a 100% for the development. In this case, I had the opportunity to express the style of my experience directly on the Slash. When I look at the second evolution of this baby, I see the reason of each chhange all around it.
Throw it, shake it, and make it dance!
