14_logo_cat_performance.jpgPerformance Switch.Cam

Following the extremely successful WARP F2012 the compact shape has been taken over, but with a slightly longer CROSS.BATTEN. 


This results in greater comfort and control during acceleration and in overpowered conditions, because the longer CROSS.BATTEN flexes off more. The steeper top batten, which provides a better connection to the top of the sail, results in a more active twist. This leads to quicker acceleration and an expanded wind range. These and many other details secure that the S_TYPE combines planing with impressive performance and incredible speed. Better than any other sail - without any disadvantages in control or handling!

Another reason for the huge range of use is the medium-sized CONICAL.AERO.SLEEVE.DESIGN mast sleeve. This represents the ideal compromise between optimum propulsion and comfortable waterstart behavior. Regardless whether at high speed or simply cruising and jibing, the S_TYPE has many faces - the perfect universal performer.

As to its durability: Apart from legendary features such as DOUBLE.SEAM and DURATECH.FOOT, we added a seam protector to the CROSS.BATTEN to prevent chafing. Simply ingenious: All S_TYPE sizes work with one mast length
