The design team working on the KAOS has always been primarily focused on the further development of the feel of the sail in order to make it an even more unique extension of your style. Easy to ride and working great for sailors of all levels. This sail just does what you tell it to do!
We first introduced the KAOS back in 2015 to complete our full range of KA Sail Windsurfing sails for each windsurfing discipline with a dedicated Freestyle sail … now it’s time to meet the 2018 KAOS!
4-BATTEN FREESTYLE SAILING
This 4-batten Freestyle sail was originally specifically targeted to those sailors who enjoy a little Freestyle action, wish to take their performance to new and higher levels and go out of their comfort zone!
POWERFUL, EASY & LIGHT
The KA Sail KAOS has a strong, powerful yet super light and super easy to control character. This allows you to commit yourself for the full 100% to performing your Freestyle trickery and remain in full control at all times. KAOS offers plenty of power on demand. Seam shaping, luff curve and batten tapers have been tweaked to refine the balance and power delivery.
IT'S ALL ABOUT TRICKS!
Freestyle sailing is all about the tricks and that is exactly what our design team had in mind for the KAOS. Direct response and pop of the sail were the main points of attention for the design team.
SHARP EDGED PRECISION TOOL
Without a doubt the 2018 KAOS has an even sharper edge. KAOS is a precision tool. A shorter and more compact profile and less built-in foil shape guarantee a more ‘throw around’ persona, better neutrality and easier ducking.
KAOS comes in only one construction for the 2018 season, offered in a cool and very noticeable red and yellow colour combination. Here, we have chosen to use a Dacron panel for instant de-powering, lightweight tri-axial X-ply for further weight reduction and a tough Monofilm window panel which provides a crystal clear vision.
SMOOTH ROTATION & NEUTRAL HANDLING
The moderate seam shaping balances power with light handling, essential for Freestyle moves. A smooth rotation of the sail and neutral handling is guaranteed by the moderate luff curve.
Main features of the KAOS include a stainless steel triple tack pulley for super smooth downhauling and strong and lightweight webbing.
KAOS also offers a full range of abrasion resistance features, like Aramid foot and tip protection, Kevlar reinforced head moulding and batten end protectors. Some of the simple features include e.g. sharp-looking details and eye-catching new-school-cool graphics.
The clew reinforcements were also improved to ensure the ability of the KAOS to survive even the most harshest of wipe-outs! On the other hand, the use of high-tech materials in the luff and leech has obviously reduced weight to the minimum.
There is little doubt that KAOS leads in style and performance!
