VOLT / VOLT HD

5-Batten-Wavewf2.png

Since its introduction the VOLT has established itself as THE Freestyle Wave sail and the ideal partner for classic single fin boards! The fifth generation of the 5 battens bestseller convinces with extremely high draft stability and a very wide wind range, especially in overpowered conditions. 

 

Maximum energy and electrifying handling: The smaller sizes of the VOLT are again oriented towards the requirements of the wave riders, the larger sizes towards freestylers. The result is a sail line that can confidently be called the ultimate all-in-one freestyle wave range.

No other NorthSails sail adapts to the conditions so effortlessly. No wonder sailors are so enthusiastic about the huge range of use. The whole team were involved in the testing. For the huge list of desires countless innovations were necessary which are hidden in every detail of the VOLTs DNA.

Thanks to a short luff the new VOLT feels extremely compact and neutral making for incredible handling characteristics. In combination with a unique foot geometry, a low draft position, a modified leech tension plus the iMODULAR.DESIGN the VOLT remains extremely neutral on the wave and during difficult maneuvers. The sail immediately reacts to even the smallest impulse.

The sophisticated luff curve and the modified profile distribution result in insane handling combined with great low-end power. The impressive performance makes it the ideal choice for any spot on the planet. And all of this over an extremely wide wind range, as there is no other wave sail that covers such a wider range, especially when overpowered! Although all sizes are designed for RDM masts they still work equally great on SDM masts. That's the reason why the new VOLT feels softer, super easy to control and can be pumped easily.

2. Profile differentiation 

17_idol_ltd_profile1.jpg IDOL LTD

> super high clew >> allows fastest possible ducking to avoid loosing any speed
> DACRON+ODL.DOUBLE.LUFF-PANEL >> generates maximum lift for all jumps against the sail
> horizontal draft position: very forward >> goes neutral during manoeuvres
> vertical draft position: high >> generates maximum lift for flat-water jumps
> 4mil ULTRA.FILM + 3 tube-battens + iROCKET tensioner + MINI.PROTECTOR >> lightest freestyle monofilm sail on the market
> greater gap between batten #3 and 4 >> makes the sail go completely neutral once you sheet out or duck the sail
17_volt_profile1.jpg VOLT

> 5 batten layout >> maximum wind range and stability
> horizontal draft position:
- small sizes = draft forward >> maximum stability
- large sizes = centered draft >> increased power

> vertical draft position: medium >> very balanced
> pronounced loose leech >> maximum stablility
17_hero_profile1.jpg HERO

> 4 batten layout >> ideal compromise between stability and lowest weight plus maximum luffability
> horizontal draft position: draft back >> power on both hand ideal for multi-fin wave-boards
> vertical draft position: medium-low >> great stability despite fewer battens
> reduced loose leech >> great low-end power
> greater gap between batten #3 and 4 >> less resitance for the wind to fill out the sail and improved on-off on the wave
