The KONCEPT is still considered to be KA Sail’s signature sail. This sail has both impressed and brought huge smiles to speed freaks around the world for many years now!
We could easily go on and on about the records this sail has already broken on multiple occasions… However, we would much rather keep it simple and explain its virtues… The KONCEPT combines the blistering top speed and acceleration of a full-blooded race sail with the user friendliness of a freeride sail.
It’s all about the right combination!
Thanks to its lightweight ergonomics, you will hardly know it’s there when you are blasting down your local speed strip and setting new personal speed records.
STABILITY AND 3 CAMS
The 2016 KONCEPT has the stability you would certainly expect from a super high performance race sail without it becoming a monster that only giants can hang on to. This is achieved by a combination of reasonably high foil tension, 3 cams, 7 carbon composite battens and a moderately wide luff sleeve in super lightweight hi-tech 2 mil tri-axial X-ply.
MORE LIGHTWEIGHT ERGONOMICS
Notable for 2016, is the addition of extra hi-tech 2 mil tri-axial laminate to the upper leech which reduces swing weight, even further enhancing the lightweight ergonomics. We also added extra luff round and seam shaping in the lower foil to get a more locked-in feeling and a more balanced sail.
Sizes 4.2 to 6.2 are optimized for speed sailing with more shape in the lower foil, while the 6.6 to 9.5 are more Slalom oriented and faster cross wind. Sizes 5.8 up to 9.5 are standard delivered with SDM cambers; sizes 5.4 and down are supplied with RDM cams. A replacement set is available to make the switch between SDM and RDM.
KONCEPT, THE SCIENCE OF SPEED!!!
