NeilPryde launch their 2014 range of sails, Boardseeker will pick out a couple for a special mention, so stay tuned, however first let’s get familiar with the whole range…
“Every day we set out to build sails that are better than any that have come before them. We evolve, tinker, test, question without compromise. In the end, we inevitably end up with something that is bigger than the sum of its parts. A NeilPryde feeling — where you just know when it’s right.
“Introducing the 2014 range, the next step in our journey to sailing perfection. We took the Forceline Panel idea from 2013 and evolved it into something bigger and better — a full sail concept where loads are dynamically controlled using advanced materials that do away with unnecessary panels and seams. The 2014 sails are built for one thing and one thing only — performance.
“Variable density yarns built into the materials allowed us to follow loads and reinforce the sail where it needs it most. Segmented luff panels in freeride sails follow loads to support significant downhaul tensions. On wave sails, the fully integrated Forceline Frame radiates from tack to clew and follows the leech into the head, holding the sail’s shape and creating a shield that can support the high loads experienced in these areas.
“We call it precision crafted performance.
“Dear water, apologies in advance.”
