Aerotech Phantom 5.7

Jun 20, 2009

Luff: 428-32 Boom: 183-86
Aerotech’s Phantom is a unique six-batten wavesail. This extra batten along with seam shaping helps provide excellent stability and ample low-end power that benefit anyone sailing in onshore conditions. Its deep pocket and high draft provide even the heaviest riders with something to balance against and quickly accelerate to speed. The all X-ply construction helps it survive the waves while we found it to also perform equally well as a freeride sail for mid-wide boards. The sixth batten keeps it stable through big gusts, but a noticeable elasticity prevents it from being a speedster. Considering the Phantom’s longish boom, the sail balances surprisingly well in transitions but the rotation is noticeable during technical manoeuvres. The tuning range is limited as the leech goes from tight to completely loose with just a slight tug on the downhaul. aerotechsails.com
