Specifically designed for the Formula Windsurfing class, the FW has been developed with Steve Allen to deliver race winning performance.
Available in 4 sizes to cover all racing conditions: 9.7, 10.5, 11.5, 12.5
All sizes utilise 9 battens to maximise wind range and profile stability.
Construction mimics the exact sail prototypes that were tested by our racers to maximise performance and minimise weight.
SEAMLESS HEAD PANEL
This high abrasion area is made from only 1 panel and does not carry any exposed seams, preventing any potential weak point in this area. As a result, seam creep and seam-related failure have been eliminated.
DIRECT DRIVE TENSIONERS
The DDT 4 and DDT 5 tensioners directly connect the tube batten to the leech of the sail. This new design eliminates the heavy section of tube that is needed for the standard batten tensioner and being smaller, has superior aerodynamics. It is used on all lower tension battens in the OVERDRIVE M2 and the MACH 2.
OPTIONAL CLEW POSITIONS
This is the recommended setting and carries the adjustable outhaul fitting. It creates the perfect balance between a comfortable clew height and leech tension. This is the setting that Matteo Iachino and Tristan Algret will use for 99% of their PWA slalom races.
This setting is lower and further in. It softens the feel of the sail and may be more comfortable for smaller, lighter riders looking for more control in higher winds.
PERFORMANCE MONOFILM CONSTRUCTION
Monofilm Construction to maximise performance and minimize weight. Construction mimics the exact sail prototypes that were tested by our racers.
BOOM HEIGHT REFERENCE
Boom height gauge for ease of reference.
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.
Used on the MACH 2, the XL Cam maximizes leading edge stability by allowing increased cam pressure to be distributed over a wider surface area.
Rotation is improved by the increased the leverage of the longer cam.
Mast wear is reduced due to less friction from the 8 rollers.
SpiderFibre on the leech of the sail massively increases the perimeter strength and inhibits vertical stretch between the sail panels.
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.
