Freestylers this is your non compromise to go extreme! It’s built to stand out and be the Sh!t! Yentel Caers has travelled the main freestyle spots bringing this discipline to the next level. Our Slash, had to follow Yentel needs, and has brought him to win multiple EFTP events, reaching PWA podiums, and all of this with the true freestyle addiction. If you are tired of single moves, get the slash to close simply any double moves!

THE TESTS ON MAGAZINES SAY

graph

The freestyle sail which has no limits, and no wind range limits.

graph

IT'S CHARACTER

graph

The sail is a powerful toy, with fast acceleration to allow moves in shorter spaces, power in lighter winds and higher stability in stronger winds. Lots of Pop! Stability all around its structure. In a double move sequence, it will not limit the power to the first move.

graph

ON THE WATER

graph

Super light in the hands with good power on the front hand to make you feel the extreme acceleration in no space. It delivers an exact profile spot to rely on and exercise all the moves around. It will allow to have power even to finish the second move. You will not need to use your own power and extra skill to finish the move. Easy and comfortable in all the conditions to allow the focus only on the best way to stand out!

FOR ZERO19

graph

The batten layout on the full outline has been changed, bringing a stiffer leech to offer a bigger stability and control during the show. The lower batten profile has been re-shaped to have the sail to rotate faster and more direct when switching stance and tacks. A double mini-batten has been added to the biggest panel in the sail for extra tension in the area. The clew has been lowered further to allow a better ducking.

COMPETITION RESULTS

graph

Through a clean and addictive freestyle mood, the Slash has conquered multiple EFTP winds, and conquered PWA podiums this year.

I’m really stoked about the performance of the new Slash! We managed to stiffen up the middle leach even further allowing more power especially when entering the second move of the sequence. The sail makes freestyle much more fun, because the combination from great control combined with power in the right position, makes the sail perfect for all kind of moves from old school to all the newest moves. Thanks to the new performance I was able to bring my freestyle to the next level and it really showed in the events. We really looked to make the sail to perform in every condition, because I like to switch up between flat water freestyle, choppy conditions are even freestyle in the waves. Freestyle is getting more extreme.

DEVELOPED AND DESIGNED

graph

The Point-7 Black Team. A team of professional sailors and designers who have proved themselves by designing the winning sail for the World Champion in the PWA Slalom World Tour. Now with their pro Freestylers Team, with Top 3 PWA rider Yentel Caers as their leader, the Slash is continually under pressure to continue its development.

graph

DEVELOPMENT TARGET

graph

No gimmicks have been invented or stitched onto the sail. The team requested the most functional freestyle sail possible with a slashed down weight to have no restraints for pulling the fastest and highest double moves.

OUTLINE

A short balanced boom length and high foot satisfy the needs of our riders to control the sail without having excess outline in the way. The reduced head outline shape allows a fast rotation of the sail, and a light feeling.

BATTENS

Straight profiled four-batten construction to save weight, and with no profile along the top 3, allowing the sail to be ducked with simplicity.

EYELETS

Low clew and straight foot of the sail to allow for better ducking and shorter boom length to allow for extra power.
One ring positioning to save weight. Placed in at the perfect height to bring the correct balance to the tension of the leach, and good easy ducking.

ROTATION AND PROFILE

An important rotation lets the batten sit in front of the mast on the lower part of the mast sleeve – giving lift as the wind enters, thanks also to the Dacron panel. This concept brings in the extra power in the front of the sail. A main concept, to have more power in light winds, dragster acceleration, and tons of pop. Moving behind the mast panel area the profile of the sail is totally flat, and 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.

CLEW

Low clew and straight foot of the sail to allow for better ducking and shorter boom length to allow for extra power.

BODY MATERIAL

To meet the requirements of the team, a large Dacron panel was introduced into create earlier planing and more pop in the sail. The Dacron luff panel is wide and covers a long area along the mast: centered perfectly to contrast the push and weight of the rider to get the max stability and higher pop. Mostly assembled by the 4mil Anti UV-Black Laminate. Highly responsive. The construction is light, but extensively tested on the water to make sure that it would still take the biggest crashes using a 5mil Anti UV-Black X-ply base panel for extra strength. Clear monofilm window for perfect vision through the sail. X-ply batten pockets for lighter weight and better reflex.

RIGGING

The Slash is straightforward to rig, requiring an easy amount of force to counter its luff curve to set the rotation of the profile according to each freestyler needs. Playing with the outhaul will boost up power or increase control but do give good outhaul tension until you you’re your perfect performance. Tighten the bottom and top batten, but just remove wrinkles on the other battens, without over tensioning them.
