One who says that only sails with cambers are true performance engines has never been out on an X_TYPE. This extremely versatile sail combines convincing handling and rigging of a NoCam sail with a very tangy power delivery and top speed. Simply powerful thrust and speed AND the ease of a NoCam sail for relaxed maneuvers. The secret is the reduced aspect ratio that was taken over by the World Cup winning sail WARP F2012 plus the relatively high sail foil tension which guarantees maximum performance even without cambers.
The new X_TYPE fascinates not only with top end performance but also during acceleration and planing due to the deep profile below the boom and the TT.TOP with active twist. Thanks to a pronounced CUTAWAY.CLEW the boom length is kept nice and short!
The forward draft location facilitates rig control and steering, and significantly contributes to what is an unusually high draft stability profile for a NoCam sail. Thanks to the PROGRESSIVE.BATTEN.CONFIGURATION, all X_TYPE models feature batten numbers relevant to size and application, with Kai Hopf managing to perfect the 6.0 and 5.4 sizes with just 6 battens. This helps reduce weight and improves handling. What’s more all X_TYPE sizes can be used with a single 460 mast - one mast fits all!
