Severne Element 7.5

Jun 17, 2009

Luff: 486 Boom: 206

Through lightweight materials and a cutaway clew, the Element 7.5 remains incredibly light in the hands, considering it pulls like a sail a metre bigger. For so much power there is an amazing sense of efficiency at speed, and it doesn’t sacrifice high-end stability compared to more normally shaped 7.5 m2 sails. The stiff leading edge that helps make all this happen takes work to rotate in transitions. As a positive, once the cams begin to move they complete their movement without a hitch and the rig feels lighter than expected when you need to balance it mid-jibe. This true freeride sail has a huge sweet spot making tuning easy. The feel is similar regardless of how precisely you tension the sail. This makes it a great choice for anyone wanting a sail they don’t need to get too technical with to enjoy. severnesails.com
