2013 IDOL

Competition Freestyle <> Wave

It was time to give the growing community of radical freestylers a new 100% competitive sail at hand that supports the creativity and experimentation of the tricksters even more then current sails. A sail, adapted to the latest trends and moves that are initiated out of the leeward position and need a lot of lift (eg, Culo, Kono). A sail that supports advanced and professionals to show there full performance. A signature model for the greatest freestyler of all time: Gollito Estredo!

Interestingly freestyle sails and power wave sail designs are very close to each other in many respects. This explains why Kai Hopf took the legendary Hero as the starting point for the development of the brand new IDOL and adapted it exactly to the requirements of the freestyle world record champion Gollito Estredo in a number of stages. The superiority of the 4 batten design is obtained (as well as on the HERO) primarily through the BALANCED.LUFF.LENGTH that determines the precisely balanced ratio of luff- to boom length: As short as possible for radical throw-ability, as long as necessary to ensure sufficient stability for a maximum wind range. The draft being more forward oriented which produces a lot of lift to enable increased pop, thus providing more time and height for jumps out of the leeward position. In addition, the unique straight foot geometry supports all kinds of tricks and duck-maneuvers as it offers more "space". 4 battens, an optimized mix of materials. The use of lightweight materials and fittings as well as the new PURE.PATCH.TECHNOLOGY all together enormously reduce the weight of the sail. Overall, the new IDOL is the ultimate competition freestyle sail that, because of its origin, even works remarkably well even in waves.
