Slalom speed seekers, who don’t like the hassle of cams, but want to make sure that what they have in their hands, has been developed in each detail to the millimeter. If cambered sails are not your cup of tea, then the sheer performance specs and looks of the AC-X should be the one for you. Let the wind fill in the sail, and you’ll be smiling seeing others eating your spray!

THE TESTS ON MAGAZINES SAY

graph

The fastest slalom sail with no cams ever, without compromise. A magazine test winner from 2014 to 2018 for its high-end speed and control. 10+ has been its vote in speed. Isn’t being the fastest what you are looking for all the time?

IT'S CHARACTER

graph

The AC-X is developed to be the fastest sail on the water and has proved itself on many magazine tests, without having a wide mast sleeve and cambers. The high-end performance will give you the high speed that you have always dreamed about, with minimal effort and easy handling characteristics. Probably the lightest seven batten no cam sail on the market, and high-end performance of the sail that excels even further in over-powered conditions. Power and enhanced stability in both low and high wind conditions, combined with a very locked-in feeling that is only comparable to a cambered sail.

ON THE WATER

graph

Yes, it has no cams! No need to look twice on the sail sleeve: if you can’t believe that the sail has such a good performance with no cams, just go for the first jibe, and you will straight away realize that the AC-X has really no cams! The sail is balanced between both arms and delivers pure slalom performance to the board and fin, to keep the trim on the rail. The sail has the same wind range as a pure race sail, it has an amazing upwind performance for a non-cam sail, and the deeper 2019 Dacron profile implements a comfortable drive through the jibe. The new 2019 profile with Dacron layers, absorbs the chop and waves allowing more control and enabling a higher average speed across the waters compared to the previous version.

FOR ZERO19

graph

The black magic has been applied to the AC-X by adding a softer luff panel on batten 6 to batten 5 area. This stripe is allowing the area to be filled in by the wind immediately and to give 3 advantages to the sail by bringing more profile in that frontal and lower area: More power, more drive and when hitting a chop, it will absorb all the impact by allowing to keep your stance firm. All this will give a higher and more comfortable top speed.

COMPETITION RESULTS

graph

Winner of many national slalom championships in different categories.

This is a masterpiece sail model from Point-7. After using the cam sails the whole year round, jumping on the AC-X feels like opening the soft top on your car and going full speed through an empty road with beautiful scenery around you. When you rig the sail, and see others on cam sails, you can’t just wait to jump on the water and upset them with this outstanding no cam sail. You feel the adrenaline already while you are rigging the sail, knowing the satisfaction it’s performance will bring on the water. You will shock not only the others, but also those around you. Check out the new power of the sail, and be even more impressed.

DEVELOPMENT TARGET

graph

Designed to take out all the annoying details that cam sails offer but aiming to have pure slalom racing performance to annoy cam sails. All this whilst allowing the rider to save more energy and be able to stay on the water all day.

OUTLINE

A real slalom sail figure. The base invites you to close the gap on your slalom or free race board as with any racing sail. A negative leach to enjoy a light feeling on the back hand, extra speed and acceleration. The top of the sail has a smaller head for more stability in stronger wind. The right mix between low and high aspect ratio duties.

BATTENS

7 tubular battens to follow the pure slalom foil profile from the sail. Each batten is assembled easy for replacements.

EYELETS

One eyelet, one position. This is the concept. We have worked on the leach to the millimeter, and the eyelet positioning is extremely important to make sure the leach gets the right tension. The eyelet it’s in the sweet spot, and that’s where it must be for the best performance.

PROFILE

The increase of profile in the front increases the drive for earlier planning and acceleration in lighter winds. The drive is fundamental for carving the board better in the jibes. A deep front profile allows stability in stronger wind, therefore increasing comfort and control. Now with the new Dacron stripe inserted between the foil and mast sleeve, the sail will offer a bigger control in stronger wind, as the stripe will absorb the chops. At the same time, it gives an extra profile as the Dacron will make the sail deeper for lighter wind and give the extra power and acceleration.

CUT OUT

A bigger cut out than a normal freeride sail, has been introduced allowing more S-shaping release as the wind and speed increases through the foil. This results in giving us the chance to increase our water performance without having to exert extra power and energy. The shape of the cut out comfortably welcomes the back end of the boom.

BODY MATERIAL

Mostly assembled by the 4mil Anti UV-Black Laminate. Highly responsive and reactive for world champion performance. 5mil Anti UV-Black X-ply base panel for protection from accidents. Clear monofilm window for perfect vision through the sail. X-ply batten pockets for lighter weight and better reflex.

FOIL

As the wind enters the sail it forms a deep and fast front profile along the mast to allow stability. The wind swiftly moves to give power exactly where the stance of our body is comfortably centered on the board, and releases quickly and smoothly through the back of the sail, to allow light back hand pressure for pushing on the fin. As the wind increases, the sail will automatically self-adjust its power, thanks to the S-Shaping, along the whole middle upper leach opening.

RIGGING

The AC-X is straightforward to rig, requiring a reasonable amount of force to counter its moderate luff curve and apply the downhaul required, guided by the visual aid in the top panel. It can rig both rdm and sdm mast, but from 6.5 up, the use of the sdm will give a better performance. Playing with the outhaul will boost up power or increase control. Tighten the lower 2-battens and the top batten, but just remove wrinkles on the other batten without overtightening them.
