THE SUPER NAKED FROM RACE SAILS
Slalom speed seekers, who are looking for an easier race cambered sail, with less ripping out power, especially for an easier execution of jibes.

Slalom speed seekers, who are looking for an easier race cambered sail, with less ripping out power, especially for an easier execution of jibes. Less weight in the front of the sail to allow to contrast the power with less energy, Lighter to water start and jibe. If you are still looking to be a national champion, with the AC-K PRO there is no need to look for a full race sail to win, when we are able to offer this super naked version. You can finally keep top speed and performance for hours on the water, without having to use the energy of a full race sail.

Nowadays, if you are looking to have a cam sail with high performance, you are forced to go for the same no compromise sail as the pro:a race sail, can be very demanding and taking lots of energy for no reason, unless you are using it on a race course. Other option would be to choose for a 3-cam sail where the performance will be highly reduced by changing outline, batten number, cam number, sleeve size, opening of the leach and many other aspects. Our development was to bring our AC-one sail to keep its pedigree, but from this, develop an easier version in the characteristics which was needed. As all the features of our AC-One were already super friendly, the only thing we did, was to reduce the mast sleeve size, which would bringpower that only pro sailors would need. Allow a softer and faster jibe rotation, and to have a batten construction which would be easy to replace in case of accidents. The new AC-K pro benefits from the same 3 XXL cams which allow an amazing rotation, 7 battens without having complicated glued or pined parts, same outline, leach opening and stance as the AC-one. A lighter AC-One version, ready to compete at any level, and dedicated for a larger public that were forced before to choose race sails for no reason.A real Super Naked from the race sails.

3cam sails, 4 cams sails: wording belonging to the past life of slalom. Now a cam sails it’s either for Racing at pro level, or to race between your friends, and it has 2 names: AC-ONE, or AC-Kpro.

Changes from 2019

Deeper profile, sail body and leach opening as the AC-One. New cams: Lower cam to give a nice round powerful profile, an XXL-cam below and top of the boom to allow a smooth rotation and a faster profile. Less downhaul force to downhaul the sail. Performance one step ahead in all directions.

CONSTRUCTION

All our Ply, X-ply and Scrims monofilm are produced in the Unites States. Completely assembled by the 4mil Anti UV Laminates. The new Anti-UV transparent grey window will not only bring your windsurfing being unique on the water, but to have a 100% Anti UV-Monofilm sail. More aggressive and stealth looking. Protecting your sails even more from the UV-Rays, acting as darkening lenses. X-ply batten pockets for lighter weight, highly responsive and reactive for world champion performance. 5mil Anti UV-Black X-ply base panel for protection from accidents.
Cams: Different size cams are placed in the sail to determine the light pressure and fast rotation on the higher cam, stability, profile and power on the lower cams.

RIGGING

The AC-K PRO needs to have the mast inserted on top of the cams. After pulling downhaul to 15cm of its final setting you can either put on the boom, and later slide in the cams before putting the final downhaul on, or place the cams on with the right technique, pulling on the full downhaul, and later putting the boom on. You will find more instructions and video on the support section on our website. Playing with the outhaul will boost up power or increase control. Tighten the lower 2 battens and the top batten, but just remove wrinkles on the other battens, without overtightening them.
