DESIGNED FOR

Slalom speed seekers, who don’t like the hassle of cams. 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

The fastest slalom sail with no cams ever, without compromise. A magazine test winner from 2014 to 2021 for its high-end speed and control. 10+ has been its vote in speed. One of the most potent top end engines here, if you have the board and mettle to keep up with it, you simply will not be beaten across the water. A drag racer’s dream. If you want to be the fastest around your local spot and make it look effortless, this sail could be the most coveted prize in your setup.

ITS CHARACTER

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. Its low-cut foot encouraging the rider to lock it into a committed stance.

WHATS NEW FOR 2022

A longer boom length has been developed on the AC-X. The advantage of having more power in light wind to increase the overall average speed. When entering a lull or gust the new boom length allows to keep the same stance and pressure on the board increasing comfort and performance.

ON THE WATER

It certainly has all the feel and drama of meaning business on the water. 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. A deeper Dacron profile implements a comfortable drive through the jibe. The 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. Once planing the acceleration, the AC-X provides is simply another level – it seems to find another gear with every subsequent gust. It demands being paired with a fast free-race or slalom board – something that has the capacity to keep up with it! When you venture into powered and overpowered conditions, you discover the AC-X’s true personality – it is a true free-race thoroughbred, finding favour with the taller, heavier rider that can use the energy it delivers. The centre of effort is locked firmly in place yet comes from such a high location that it best suits those with an assertive riding style. It helps lift the rider’s stance and push the board’s speed, making it fly on its fin. Carry this speed into the turn and the AC-X has the balance and handling to reposition easily, the lower luff panel breathing to soften the delivery and provide the extra low- end power to complete the transition efficiently.

RACE RESULTS

Winner of many national slalom championships in different categories.

DEVELOPED AND DESIGNED BY

The Point-7 Black Team. A team of professional sailors and designers who have proved themselves by designing the winning PWA tittle sails in Slalom, Waves and Freestyle.

DEVELOPMENT TARGET

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. 

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.

AC-X 22

AC-X 22

The deep Dacron lower profile absorbs the chop & waves, allowing more control, enabling a higher average speed. The Dacron will create a deeper for
lighter wind and give the extra power and acceleration, plus a comfortable drive through jibe.

The top part of the luff built in Xply locks the profile, keeping the sail highly reactive. The power exactly focuses where the stance of our body is comfortably centered. This allows light back hand pressure for pushing on the fin.

Small head for less drag but closed to keep the winglet effect.

A negative leach to enjoy a light feeling on the back hand, extra speed, and acceleration.

As the wind increases, the sail will automatically self-adjust its power, thanks to the S-Shaping, along the whole middle leach opening.

The eyelet positioning is positioned to make tension the leech with right pressure. 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.

Its low-cut foot encouraging the rider to lock it into a committed stance. The sail is balanced between both arms and delivers pure slalom performance to the board and fin.

5mil Anti UV- X-ply base panel for protection from accidents. All our Ply, X-ply and Scrims monofilm are produced in the Unites States.

Anti-UV transparent grey window to have a 100% Anti UV-Monofilm sail.

Lower Dacron Luff panel for extra power and comfort

4mil Anti UV X-ply laminate for high reactivity

X-ply alternate batten pockets for lighter weight and reflex. 7 tubular battens to follow the pure slalom foil profile from the sail. Each batten is assembled easy for replacements

High X-ply luff panel for fast reflex.
