DETAILS

S_TYPE SL

International press outlets have repeatedly rated the S_TYPE as the best of its class. As a highly competitive slalom sail designed for everyday sailors, it has an unquenchable thirst for speed, but is nonetheless easy to handle. One of the reasons for this is that the S_TYPE SL has inherited the racing DNA of the WARP to guarantee maximum performance potential. At the same time, the S_TYPE SL’s handling is extraordinarily simple for its class. This is made possible by the revolutionary NO COMPROMISE DESIGN, which was adapted from the WARP 20.19. A reduced profile, loose leech and luff curve all improve performance in the lower end of the wind range and thus boost acceleration. 

The S_TYPE SL in the NO COMPROMISE DESIGN is the perfect synthesis from the most successful race slalom sails in our company’s history. Whether you’re racing along at maximum speed or casually cruising and gybing, the S_TYPE SL boasts extreme versatility. Kai Hopf combines the balanced handling and comfort of the S_TYPE SL with the top-end performance of a WARP. The result is an outstanding level of power on all courses and superior control to boot. Particularly noticeable is the highly tapered luff sleeve in the AERO SLEEVE DESIGN 2.0. Its width in the aerodynamically important boom area enables the optimal transition from the “thick” mast leading edge to the “thin” sail profile. However, at the top of the sail the luff sleeve has remained relatively narrow to enable fast on-water starts. This is supported by the LUFF LIFT DESIGN of the WARP 20.19, which provides additional lift. The S_TYPE SL is incredibly useful as a high-performance sail for various board types because it can be sailed with either two or three cambers (removable camber in the foot area). Simply genius! All S_TYPE SL sizes perform reliably well with just one mast length.
