Every serious freeride windsurfer demands a sail that is easy, comfortable and forgiving, but at the same time the sail needs to maintain an impressive overall performance and top end speed.
NO-CAM FREERIDE CHALLENGE
Of course we took on this no-cam Freeride challenge and have set the standard for no-cam Freeride sails with this latest edition of the KA Sail KOYOTE.
TWEAKING THE OVERALL DESIGN
This season, we aspired to set an even higher standard by tweaking the overall design of the KOYOTE sail in several different areas. Thanks to the new colour scheme we use in the KA Sail range for 2017 you’ll definitely get noticed on the water with the new KOYOTE!
LIGHTER FEELING AND BETTER CONTROL
A notable feature is the use of lighter materials to reduce swing weight giving the sail a softer feeling and better control, most noticeably when sailing in rough conditions.
We gave the KOYOTE a more compact outline, which we have been testing in our Race and Slalom sails for a few years now.
CONTINUOUS RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
All learnings from the continuous R&D program for the KONCEPT sail line have been incorporated in the KOYOTE designs.
THE REAL SECRET TO A BLISTERING TOP END SPEED
However, the real secret to the KOYOTE’s success is the progressive leech twist and slippery upper foil profile that reduce drag and deliver a blistering top end speed.
SERIOUSLY FAST FREERIDE
This sail is seriously fast and has been known to top the forty knot barrier on numerous different occasions!
The foil tension is grafted for excellent draft stability when overpowered, yet the handling is soft enough for effortless maneuvers and easy pumping.
The sail can be easily locked down for straight down the line blasting and is extremely well balanced and beautifully predictable throughout the transitions.
The KOYOTE displays the perfect combination of composite tubes and glass rod battens, which maintain the draft location in the sail perfectly.
AN INTELLIGENT MATERIAL MIX
An intelligent mix of X-ply and Monofilm materials in the construction of the sail combines durability with a crisp lively feel and blistering acceleration.
Abrasion resistance enablers such as for instance the moulded soft edges on the foot and cross-over battens, the batten end-protectors and a twin ply Dacron head panel each increase the sail’s longevity.
