NeilPryde Atlas HD Sail 2021
Atlas HD - 4.2 and 6.2
The Atlas is a sail that opens up lots of opportunities for its rider. It can be used for jumping, wave riding and bump and jump conditions. It thrives in onshore wave conditions due to its powerful nature which makes them less than perfect conditions a dream.

Back in the range, the Atlas offers a predictable, stable and friendly ride, ideal to use in on-shore wave conditions. Early to plane, the Atlas is up and ready to get into the action with efficient, usable power at all times.
Featuring great upwind ability and acceleration, the Atlas pushes hard, when conditions are less than ideal and its high lift characteristics propel you up high in the air during jumps.
The Atlas 2021 is probably the sail that has most benefited from the introduction of the Ultra Scrim into the second panel down. This sail has always been powerful and quick to get planing, but the new lighter material further down from the head, combined with the extra stretch that Ultra Scrim gives you make the sail much easier to handle now in strong gusts and for lighter sailors.
It still has the juice you need to get going but without the brutal power, those previous editions have been known for.
RADIAL HD panels used in our HD construction are there to strategically re-distribute the tack and clew loads throughout the sail’s body; improving the sail reflex without deforming.
RADIAL HD panels are custom stitched per sail size for the HD versions of COMBAT and ATLAS to offer similar characteristics to Powerfuse at a lower price point.
POWERFUSE panels in the PRO construction are there to strategically re-distribute the tack and clew loads throughout the sail’s body; improving the sail reflex without deforming the laminates.
POWERFUSE transforms wind energy into power, instead of losing it through material stretch.
It helps profile stability and prevents deformation.
We have taken out traditional, separate batten pockets by overlapping body panels to efficiently create a sleeve for battens. This reduces 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.
Double stitching is used on all critical seams across our sails, allowing them to endure prolonged exposure to high loads and impacts.
