In Italy racing is art. For no compromise slalom sailors, who know how to attack jibes and are ready to feel the power of the beast when flipping the sail. For those who don’t just want to be on the podium but want to be first!

On the water feel

Leaving the beach, the sail will totally feel light in your hands. Crank up the throttle and see how you get once set to 6th gear and be ready to absolutely fly! Why? Downforce! Softness and stability! The AC-One pushes the deck down, eliminating any unwanted nose-lift from lively boards and absolutely charges through – or rather over – chop and swell. Yes, it’s insanely powerful yet easy to control as all the power is in the front, leaving the back hand with no effort to be applied. In fact, it is mega, turbo powerful – the acceleration is insane. But the force pins down the hull and leaves you in a nice, high position of control over the thumping V12 at the end of your arms. When it comes to jibing, the entrance to the jibe is easy thanks to its light profile at the rear part of the sail but be ready to handle the boosted power of its acceleration once you flip the sail.
With the 3-cam the rotation became light and smoother than before. The softer feeling from the 2019 foil gives an extra power in light winds, increasing up to 20% performance from the previous years. The transition from lighter winds to stronger gusts, is much smoother. This allows to keep the same stance and body position no matter the wind intensity donating more control, more instant and easy acceleration, no loss of board control. Simply easier and faster!

Changes from 2019

2019 was first version from the 3cam and 7 batten AC-One history. There was still lots to explore and test after having taken this sail to the first slalom events. All details have been gone through to modify the second-generation edition. A big boost will come from a new opening of the lower part of the leach. In addition, the sizes 5.0, 5.6 and 6.2 have been adapted to use our rdm masts only. Softer feeling in stronger wind, faster rotation. For those who have the first edition, will straight away feel the work done on it!

CONSTRUCTION

Mostly assembled by the 4mil Anti UV-Black Laminate. Highly responsive and reactive for world champion performance. 5mil Anti UV-Black X-ply base panel for protection from accidents. Clear monofilm window for perfect vision through the sail. X-ply batten pockets for lighter weight and improved reflex.

RIGGING

The AC-1 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 pop on the cams before putting the final downhaul on, or place the cams on with the right technique, pulling on full downhaul, and then putting the boom on. You will find more instructions and videos 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.
