Neil Pryde Racing EVO XIV 2023
Completely redesigned for 2023, our most technologically advanced Slalom sail ever.
Designed from the ground up with our new state-of-the-art 3D design software.
Entire sail is modeled in 3D in its actual flying shape with twist and luff curve accounted for.
Our quadruple luff panel allows us to align panels with the highest loads.
Full carbon battens above the boom offer ultimate performance and weight.
RS:Racing holds more world titles and speed records than any other racing sail over the past 20 years.
4 levels of material make up the luff sleeve to increase strength and load carrying performance in this critical, high-stress area of the sail. This luff sleeve design allows us to carry a maximum amount of downhaul tension and greatly reduces stretch in the luff sleeve area, thus increasing performance.
Ultimate control and stability are provided by the 7 batten design.
Battens are laid out in an aerodynamically correct way, taking into account the rake of the sail when sailing. This improves airflow, allows for easier rotation and faster acceleration.
Carbon ribs sewn onto the upper sleeve’s leading edge stabilize this critical section of the profile on the highest battens where cambers are not used.
This helps maintain the sail’s profile clean, reducing drag, allowing higher top speed and ensuring proper rotation.
