Simmer X Type 7.5

Jun 17, 2009

Luff: 487 Boom: 219
We are surprised to find that for a sail that is built as durably as a wavesail that it is light in the hands and one of the fastest in the test. Part of what makes it feel light is a flatter profile that keeps it from being as powerful as the cam sails. In transitions though, it seems like this is a justifiable trade-off as its lightness lets it move trough a turn quickly with a smooth rotation. The flatter profile also helps it remain stable when fully powered gaining wind range at the top end. For an advanced rider there is good feedback to help you trim the sail and its efficiency cannot be beat. Advanced riders will also love how tunable the X Type is in that through downhaul you can set the draft higher to match with a wider board for light air and then lower for a narrower board when the wind picks up. simmerstyle.eu
