Control, Speed and Power! Those were the key words to describe the focus of our dedicated design team when framing up this 2017 KA KILLER wave weapon!
The 5-batten set-up of our wave sail, the KA Sail KILLER, maximises stability and wind range, allowing you to commit your focus 100% to riding the wave!
The 2017 KILLER is even lighter than before, with more refined placement of materials to reduce swing weight. This year though we have made use of a high-tech 2 mil tri-axial laminate in the bottom panel as well. With 2 different constructions on offer, the blue and yellow color combination comes with a Monofilm window, improving vision when sailing DTL and looking into the setting sun, when you’re out there all alone scoring that one last wave! The red and yellow color combination is a bombproof 100% X-ply construction.
The team focused particularly on the development of a new look and improved feel for the 2017 KILLER as a unique extension of your style. We’ve reworked refinements to the luff curve by increasing the curve near the boom to help the sail fill out more. For 2017, we have also removed the second vertical panel along the mast sleeve and have redesigned the shaping in this area for a less locked-in feeling.
The KILLER has become even more lethal than before this season. More shaping in the front of the sail delivers the power you crave, yet there is also a subtle softness in the sail you will not easily forget! You will also notice the sail’s ergonomic features are perfectly balanced, allowing you to drive down the wave with speed to burn. Engaging fully committed rail-to-rail turns becomes child’s play…
TURN, SMACK, GOUGE, REPEAT!
Don’t be fooled into thinking we have sacrificed strength to gain weight savings. That myth has well and truly been busted! As always, we gave our R&D team strict orders to try and destroy one of the prototypes. They took it to some of Western Australia’s heaviest reef and shore breaks and put themselves right in the impact zone … the only thing that came out broken was their ego! This sail was built to last and take the heavy hits! If you’re looking for a great all-round wave sail to use in a wide range of conditions, then look no further!
THE 2017 KILLER IS A TRULY AWESOME ALL-ROUND WAVE WEAPON THAT WILL RESPOND TO EVERYTHING YOU THROW AT IT!
