The new Firewing has seen a complete overhaul.
A subtle increase in the luff tube width and the additional of a 4th cam, now make
the Firewing fully race competitive straight out the bag.
A change to vertical seam shaping has meant we could increase the foil depth,
whilst at the same time keeping that foil locked forward where it is controllable.
This not only added power, but more importantly increased the stability of the sail
and allowed us to increase the boom length for more drive.
The leech has been opened in the mid section, whilst keeping it relatively tight through the top,
which helps to keep the board pinned to the water for control, whilst the sail still releases.
The Firewing offers huge top end top blitz down the reaches, low end drive to pull you out of gybe marks
and all of this in a soft and easy to use package that will see you standing tall on the podium, or smashing your GPS records.
John Skye NOTES
“The new Firewing is another level.
We literally have spend hours, days and months tuning and refining the sail to maximise performance.
For me control is really important so everything about the new design was focused on maximising performance whilst
keeping ease of use and control right in the centre.
With this sail I am going faster than ever with minimum effort”.
5.2-6.2: 7 battens and RDM mast for increased comfort and manoeuvrability in strong winds.
7.0: 7 battens and SDM mast for ideal balance of weight, manoeuvrability and stability.
7.8-9.2: 8 battens and SDM mast for pure power and stability in lighter winds.
- Longer boom – Improved drive.
- (NEW) Performance construction.
– Complex mix of materials throughout the sail to give the perfect blend of light weight, strength and style.
- Head curve: Reduction in the top batten length to reduce tip swing weight.
NEW Integrated Trim System.
