For all kinds of wind and wave conditions.
Lighter, loser, softer. An innovative sail fabric and a better outline stand out as the defining characteristics of the new 2014 CURVE. Using the new lighter 4mill x-ply, we managed to shed some weight without losing the legendary durability this sail is so well known for.
A shorter boom and a shorter sail-foot improve the handling of the sail compared to its predecessor. The wider sail head with increased loose leech guarantees more control. With a softer and more stable ON/OFF feeling the CURVE becomes the perfect partner in every turn.
Point-of-pressure stability and perfectly balanced power in a huge wind range is what extensive research and development on the five battened CURVE has resulted in.
It doesn’t matter how high your sailing level is, the CURVE will convince with its outstanding performance and construction quality.
Compact, universal wind range and virtually undestroyable!
