Buckle up!

Think, design, engineer, build, test, test, test, test, repeat. The NeilPryde Racing Program strikes again with the new edition of the speed-record-holding, World Cup-winning EVO series. The all-new RS:Racing EVO9 over-delivers on speed and acceleration but the real improvement comes in improved shaping. Reduced luff length and the pronounced leading edge curvature enhance performance and handling while the tip cut-out reduction generates more drive and limits induced drag.
Reduced luff length and increased leading edge curvature generates constant drive and high acceleration in gusts.
The tip cut-out reduction reduces induced drag thanks to unrestricted head batten twist.
The twist shaping concept incorporates powerful, forward-oriented lower body profile together with increased twist and profile reduction in the mid-body area of the sail. This concept retains power and acceleration while at the same time increases the release in the lower leech area. As a result, the new EVO9 rig can be sailed with more rake angle, increasing lift on the fin and improving top-end acceleration and speed. At the same time head twist is controlled in order to keep consistent pressure on the mast foot and prevent the nose of the board from lifting in gusts.

EVO9 features progressive aspect ratios across different sail sizes in order to address the specific functionality. Higher aspect ratio in larger sizes (7.8 and up) increases light wind efficiency and performance of the rig as well as improving maneuverability at the marks by reducing the boom length. Lower aspect ratio in smaller sizes (7.0 and down) helps maintain top-end control and stability by keeping a longer boom and focusing the sail center of effort around the rider area where it is easier to control.

The dual boom length options, allows for the rider to adapt the sail's performance to various conditions. Outer clew position can be used when you are looking for extra power and upwind lift while the inside clew setting provides better power release and control. Those performance adjustments are made possible by the outer position supporting (locking) the lower leech twist for increased power, while the inner position allows the lower leech to twist freely making it release excessive power while locking the draft forward.

The evolution of component sleeve construction completely eliminates the front seam along the sail leading edge. This increases precision during the assembly process, reduces weight at the leading edge, creates a perfectly clean profile entry and eliminates a weak spot in construction at the exposed leading edge by removing any stitching that could come in contact with the mast.

Combining materials with specific properties in the sleeve allowed us to achieve optimum profile entry stability and elasticity, critical for rotation and light weight. The upper-front section is made from a lightweight woven material that has the necessary elasticity and durability to resist wear from direct mast contact. A low stretch Dyneema™ ArmourWeb section can take high downhaul tension and is critical in stabilising the profile entry, providing smooth bridging between Ultra Cams. Lightweight, rip-resistant laminated film/taffeta with Dyneema™ yarns controls the stretch while providing ultimate rip resistance. Bottom part of the sleeve is finished using our Luff Glide material that combines very low friction against the mast (important for smooth rotation) with excellent durability and necessary elasticity in the bottom part.

EVO9 features four continuous luff panels that carry most of the sail body shaping. This configuration stabilises the critical section draft position while also providing lightweight yet stretch-resistant way of increasing the film thickness proportional with downhaul load distribution. Continuous panels eliminated horizontal seams crossing the highly loaded leading edge, which increases response of the sail as well as durability. Introduction of this extremely stable leading edge platform that is able to take very high downhaul loads allowed us to integrate Clear Pocket construction in the remaining sail body.
Mini Batcams
Streamline and reduce weight in critical upper leech.

Carbon Leech Mini Battens
Provide max support with minimum weight.

Allow easy rigging through loop to loop system that reduces the friction and eliminates any crossing lines (crucial when using adjustable outhaul system).

Batcam Screw Adjuster
For easy and precise tension application.

Innovative suspended camber system dramatically improves sail rotation and acceleration out of gybes. Simultaneous tuning of battens and cambers makes the sail easy to tune.

Three-Piece Cam Battens
A 3-piece batten provides the framework for the design of a smooth, lightweight and stable sail profile.
Carbon/fiberglass tube: stiffest section.
Hollow mid-section: medium stiffness.
Precision Tapered CNC Batten: variable stiffness.

Mini Carbon Battens
For a smoother leading edge in the upper area where no cams are used.

Clear Pocket Batten Sleeve
Overlapping body panels create a sleeve for battens, eliminating the need for traditional, separate batten pockets. This saves on unnecessary weight, simplifies construction and creates a fully symmetrical batten cavity, eliminating the tendency of traditional batten pockets to load differently from one tack to another.

Kevlar Batten Bridges
To distribute the high downhaul load crossing the battens

Aerodynamic Boom cutout closure
Prevents the apparent wind from blowing into the mast sleeve and generating drag.

Batten Chafe Protection
Abrasion resistant PU print to help protect the battens from damage caused by rigging or boom contact.
