With a light 4-batten set-up, the KA Sail KAMIKAZE is our 2017 wave offering, especially targeted to sailors who want a more lively sail in their quiver...
NEW MEMBER ON THE TEAM!
Meet the KA Sail KAMIKAZE, the new and improved version of the KRYPTO! With a much more lively look and feel, this brand new KAMIKAZE is in our 4 batten wave sail. If you are new school cool, then this is definitely the sail for you!
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. The KRYPTONITE designs were obviously at the basis for the KAMIKAZE.
Some added luff curve has seriously improved on the sails’ wind range, allowing the front of the sail to fill up more. Boom and mast lengths deliver a more compact sail than the KILLER. With a dynamic leech and crisp gust response, the KAMIKAZE 2017 will without a doubt 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 a crystal clear vision and a crisp gust response, while the window in the KAMIKAZE Red is in X-ply for those who are looking for the added security of a 100% X-ply construction and a softer feel.
KAMIKAZE VS KILLER
When comparing KAMIKAZE and KILLER, the first is a better choice for sailors under 85 kgs or for those who preferably sail in more stable, less gusty winds. For heavier riders, KILLER offers more power and a bit more stability in gusty “on/off” conditions.
The sail’s features include a stainless steel triple tack pulley for smooth downhauling, a 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.
Lighter, stronger, more engaging …
The refinements made to the wave sail range for 2017 by the design team have created a lighter, stronger and more engaging ride with the KAMIKAZE, which blends wave and freestyle sailing into a level that is out of this world! Crazy wave sailing action!
