The KA Kryptonite 2015 is a 4 batten wave sail targeted to those who want a more lively sail in their quiver. It has a shorter and more compact profile compared to the Killer and a bit less built-in foil shape for a more “throw-around” persona.
Compared to the 2014 edition, we added some luff curve to improve the sails’ wind range allowing the front of the sail to fill up more. Incorporating this with a dynamic leech and crisp gust response, the Kryptonite 2015 will deliver an engaging ride that will put you in the box seat!
Aramid Draft Lock clew stringers help stabilize the draft and provide a stronger more responsive clew. The use of our hi-tech tri-axial 2 ply laminate in the top panels of the sail keeps the swing weight down. A 7 mil Monofilm window provides crystal clear vision and a crisp gust response, while in the Kryptonite Blue the window has been done in X-ply for those who want the added security of a 100% X-ply construction and a slightly softer feel.
Features include a stainless steel triple tack pulley for smooth downhauling, super strong webbing reinforced stainless steel clew eyelet and a host of abrasion resistance features, like the PVC foot protection, the Kevlar reinforced head moulding and batten end protectors.
Comparing Kryptonite to Killer, it is a better choice for sailors under 85 kgs or for those who sail in stable, less gusty winds. For heavier riders, the Killer offers more power and a bit more stability in gusty “on/off” conditions.
The refinements made to the 2015 Kryptonite have created a lighter, stronger and more engaging sail that blends wave and freestyle sailing into a level that is out of this world!
