Gaastra Pilot 6.0

Jun 20, 2009

Luff: 450 Boom: 190
The Pilot’s ease-of-use makes it a true freeride sail. It offers simple and effective downhaul tuning for different wind conditions without changing the sail’s overall feel. The power is easily accessible and the Pilot still remains well balanced when fully powered. A huge sweet spot makes it easy for any rider to find a comfortable harness-line placement. The higher draft suits wider boards best, but with more downhaul it will work on inboard-strapped freeride boards as well. This may not be the fastest sail but its balanced feel is so good that you will consistently push your own personal limits. A long boom helps stability but hurts manoeuvrability and rotation. However, good depowering will keep riders in control for nailing their first planing jibes. gaastra.com
