Maximum performance just below World Cup level with a balanced handling - these are the cornerstones for the development of the RAM F13. So the starting point this time could be again just the current World Cup WARP. To make its unbeatable performance easier to manage, first we removed one camber plus the mast sleeve width was reduced. Then all the components, design features and details were exactly matched to the range of use in order to obtain the simplest possible handling without any performance compromises. As a result the RAM F13 is, and remains a relentlessly fast Slalom sail, with again improved acceleration power and top speed over the whole wind range through a steeper angle of the top batten.
7 battens, a narrower mast sleeve and the reduced weight make the RAM F13 far less physical to handle than the WARP F2012.
The INDEPENDENT.SHAPING.CONCEPT supports this concept decisively. Instead of just using one kind of shaping for the complete sail (sail body and mast sleeve), Kai worked with 2 separate 3-D profiles for the sail body and mast sleeve. The wind range has improved drastically by an impressive 25%.
Additionally the TWIN.TRIM.CLEW lends further positive range of use. The secret of the TWIN.TRIM.CLEW lies with horizontally placed clew eyelets. The outer clew position provides more power and direct feeling, while the inner position lends superior control and a softer sensation.
The TT.TOP, super stiff BOX.BATTEN and the wide and conical AERO.SLEEVE mast sleeve design features, lead the new RAM F13 to breathtaking top end speeds for both GPS and competition pilots. A missile of this caliber has never been so easy to use and is the secret to it’s success.
