Its Character 

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 on 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.

On The Water Feel 

It’s not about freeriding, it’s nothing less than pure acceleration, speed, and control. This is what is experienced as soon as you close the gap of the AC-K PRO . The power is balanced between both arms and the sail keeps accelerating without having to pull or work with your arms. Just relax them and let your body weight sit comfortable on the balanced profile from the sail. The light feels and easy rotation of the sail, will let you enjoy and execute perfect fast jibing without having to lose energy and power. As the wind picks up the sail becomes lighter, more fun and will not demand to switch to a smaller sail so easily.

Who Does the ACK Suit?  

For those looking for an easier race cambered sail, with less ripping out power, especially for an easier handling. Less weight in the front of the sail to allow to contrast the power with less energy, Lighter to water start and jibe. You can finally keep top speed and performance for hours on the water, without having to use the energy of a full race sail.

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.
