BLADE _CONTROL ORIENTED WAVE

The Blade has defined the 5-batten wave sail category for nearly two decades.

With the new GRADIENT PANEL TECHNOLOGY improvements are obvious. Lighter weight and better stability.

Corners have overlapped panels which reduces the amount of patching. At the same time, these overlapped areas extend into the body of the sail so it transitions the load much better, will be less stretched over time. It’s a more stable way of building sails.

Rather than a single curved luff panel, the Blade uses separate panels that radiate out of the head and tack corners. This perfectly aligns the sail material with the direction of load. Previously the curved panel would have bias stretch in all the wrong places. Direct transmission of power. Increased longevity. Total Control.

TECHNOLOGY

Severne Blade 023 - Wave sail
pointer
VX2

VX2

/ MATERIAL
VX2 is a vertically oriented X-Ply featuring increased fibre density for stability and control, reduced film thickness for less weight, and our proven scrim layer for dependable durability. The 2 signifies the film thickness in mil.

/ ADVANTAGES.
VX2 laminate significantly reduces deformation in the sail compared to eM3 material. The vertical stretch has been reduced by more than 20% whilst the horizontal stretch characteristics have increased fractionally to enhance the elastic springy feel that has defined the SV wave sails.

MORE STABLE.
MORE DURABLE.
LESS WEIGHT.

pointer
DOUBLE SEAMS

DOUBLE SEAMS

All Severne wave sails have 25mm double stitched window seams. The wider, single colour seam tape ensures maximum tear strength and crash resistance

pointer

3&4 ROLLER TACK PULLEY

Roller tack pulleys are matched to the sails downhaul requirements and aligned for friction free downhauling and threading ease. Rig your sails with the Severne Hardware Division extensions for function and simplicity.

pointer
THERMOFORMED TACK FAIRING

THERMOFORMED TACK FAIRING

Protects your board from impact and neatly covers the foot detailing. It incorporates the rope stash pocket for easy storage of your downhaul rope.

pointer
MOLDED SOFT EDGE

MOLDED SOFT EDGE

With recessed grooving, covering any vulnerable stitching the moulded soft edge encloses the hard edge long the foot of the sail and protects the stitching from wear along the board non-skid.

pointer
SPIDERFIBRE

SPIDERFIBRE

A web of fibreglass filament that disburses loads across seams and throughout the body of the sail. By using stronger, lighter fibres and reducing sail patching, we can measurably reduce weight and swing weigh and at the same time, increase strength.

pointer
EM4 HIGH LOAD LAMINATE

EM4 HIGH LOAD LAMINATE

Based on the proven eM3 platform, the high load eM4 material features twice the amount of X-Ply fibre and increased film thickness to maximise durability. This new material allows weight reduction whilst maintaining puncture resistance and tear strength. Used in the lower impact zone in the sail.

pointer

SEAMLESS FOOT CONSTRUCTION

A single panel in the foot area with hidden load patches and zero exposed stitching eliminates seam abrasion and seam creep in this high load area. Maximum durability and minimum weight.

pointer
GRADIENT PANEL TECHNOLOGY

GRADIENT PANEL TECHNOLOGY

Corners have overlapped panels which reduces the amount of patching. At the same time, these overlapped areas extend into the body of the sail so it transitions the load much better, will be less stretched over time. It’s a more stable way of building sails.

Rather than a single curved luff panel, the Blade uses separate panels that radiate out of the head and tack corners. This perfectly aligns the sail material with the direction of load. Previously the curved panel would have bias stretch in all the wrong places. Direct transmission of power. Increased longevity. Total Control.

Using the new GRADIENT PANEL TECHNOLOGY. Corners have overlapped panels which reduces the amount of patching. At the same time these overlapped areas extend into the body of the sail so it transitions the load much better, will be less stretch over time. It’s a more stable way of building sails.

The GRADIENT PANEL TECHNOLOGY logically reduces weight, increases strength and controls stretch. Overall weight is reduced but the more significant improvement is the feel – quicker reacting and lighter feel.

Rather than a single curved luff panel, we use separate panels – split luff – that radiate out of the head and tack corners. This perfectly aligns the sail material with the direction of load.

Previously the curved panel would have bias stretch in all the wrong places. Direct transmission of power. Increased longevity.

What is new on the 023 Blade?

The 023 Blade sails make use of GRADIENT PANEL TECHNOLOGY, as well as, make use of high end materials such as VX2 and EM4.

You can read more about technologies here.

What is the difference between the Blade and the Blade Pro?

The Blade Pro uses CarbonFusion technology and is constructed using carbon fibre laminates.

The Blade is less expensive than the Blade Pro.

Can I rig the Blade on an SDM mast?

No, the Blade Pro’s are designed on RDM masts

Should I use different mast extensions to match the Blade quiver or can I use the largest one?

You can always use, for example, Cyclops 36 cm on all Blade Pro sizes. If you notice you mainly 24cm extension and below it’s a good option to save weight by going to a 24cm extension instead. Besides weight, there aren’t significant performance gains between the two extensions.

What is the difference between Blade and S-1?

The S1 is more manoeuvrable orientated, which means it has more backhand power that allows you to change your line more in the bottom turn and makes it easier to rotate through manoeuvres like wave 360.

The Blade is kept more neutral with more power in the front of the sail giving you a lot more control for both riding and jumping.

Does the Blade change characteristics depending on size?

No, the Blade is a wave sail across the full range.
