Here comes the evolution of the world champion sail that made Pierre Mortefon the reigning PWA Overall racing champion. And with this sail, he will be back in the hunt for the World Cup crown in 2022!
In racing, maximum acceleration and control over the material are what count when it comes to standing at the top of the podium.
So it’s only logical that all the innovations and improvements of the WARP_FIN 20.22 are aimed precisely at this. Last year’s model marked a complete redesign. The more pronounced High Aspect Ratio design, especially in the larger sizes, with a shortened boom length and a forward-shifted profile, requires less power, is lighter in the hand and offers more control at the upper wind limit. In addition, stiffer tube battens stabilize the shape well into the overpowered range and you can easily convert even monster gusts into a plus in speed. All in all the WARP_FIN is more balanced, less exhausting and even more controllable. On the other hand, acceleration and speed-up have also been improved to make up ground after the start and jibes. Based on the successful NO COMPROMISE DESIGN concept, the draft position has been moved a bit further up to lift the board which leads to improved planing and explosive acceleration thanks to reduced resistance. The NO COMPROMISE DESIGN also makes it possible that the propulsion does not start abruptly and has to be “muscled down” but builds up much softer than with other power slalom sails! This relieves the pilot, gives power reserves for the entire course and full concentration on the race.
There are other positive side effects of the modified profile geometry with a higher draft position: the trim of the board improves and in combination with the unrivalled soft camber rotation the sail shifts even more effortless and faster.
For 2022 the team has worked on optimizing the upper luff curve which again improves the overall performance and makes the sails even less physical. To comply with the new PWA rules most work went into new 5.8 to ensure it covers the same wind range and performance as the previous 6.2 and 5.5.
Whether you wanna be the fastest at your spot or win national or even international races the WARP_FIN 20.22 is your weapon of choice.
