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 bring power 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
Take all the goodies from a full-on competition slalom sail, reduce its mast sleeve and shallow a little the profile. This is the AC-K PRO. Featuring a medium sized luff pocket, a sweet smooth rotating 3-cam set-up combined with a lot of low-end power to get planing nice and early. The AC-K PRO is a high-speed powerhouse that is easy to handle and sits ridiculously light in your hands, keeping the board at a steady hover above the water to give you the best possible control and speed out of your kit. The AC-K PRO is an incredibly fast sail to use, flattering even the nervous rider with a blistering performance.
Instead, take the AC-K PRO in any conditions, and will just deliver all the time. From early planning to overpowered conditions. Going fast was never so easy! Let the pressure build steadily, lock your stance in place, hold on and let the magic happen. Slicing through the air, it is effortless to cover ground on and whilst rapid on all points of sail, seemed to point beautifully close to the wind. The center of effort is low, focused around the rider and providing feedback through both hands. It is just so balanced and requires little technical input or energy expenditure from the pilot, enabling them to prolong their drag-racing sessions. The faster you sail, the lighter the AC-K PRO ’s handling, which is also very apparent in transition, thereby encouraging you to enter and maintain your speed throughout
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.
