For the first year in RRD sails history we introduce a full power PWA race winning sail. Absolutely zero compromises in making this sail 100% race ready and tuned for winning at the highest level. A wide sleeve, carbon battens, deep profile and performance that will blow you away.
With the heritage left behind from the Firewing, we still focused on making things easy and the X-wing offers both blistering speeds and power, whilst remaining light in the hands and easy to use. It is not for the faint hearted, but go with it and anything is possible.
John Skye NOTES
“A crazy amount of work has gone into this sail with hours of testing, refining and more testing helping to produce a sail that not only offers the performance needed to win races, but also remains incredibly comfortable to use. We focused on every detail possible to make sure that every sail that comes out the factory is race tuned and ready. Featuring a completely new luff curve, a new widened luff sleeve, a new batten configuration, new shaping throughout… the list goes on and no details were left untouched. Next year promises to be something special!”.
A deeper draft profile increases the power and stability plus allowed as to reduce the cam pressure and improve the cam rotation. We have achieved a more connected leech twist thanks to a completely new luff curve as well as adjustments to the shaping in the leading edge. Thanks to the improved stability and control we’re able to reduce the number of battens in the larger sizes from 8 to 7. This reduces the weight and also improves the pumping and low-end performance.
The new X-WING has 3 eyelet positions all with similar boom lengths to ride the sail more neutral or more lifty, depending on your style and set up.
The X-WING is a sail that works more smoothly and efficiently across the full wind range.
