// PRO WAVE PERFORMANCE WITH DRIVE TO MANOEUVRE
22/23 Blacktip presents absolute high-end performance for the advanced
to pro, wave sailors looking for a sail to push their limits in any
conditions. The Blacktip is the solution for any rider looking for a
sail with a light feel, direct power delivery, and a wide wind range.
This combined with extra back-hand throttle to create drive to manoeuvre
in the critical sections of the wave, is what makes the Blacktip first
choice for pro riders such as Alessio Stillrich and Ben Proffitt.
22/23 Blacktip presents a refined luff curve design, with a slightly
lower aspect ratio compared to 2021. These improvements promote a
lowered center of effort and a more forward-focused profile. These
features combined enable a crisp and reactive feel to the sail. Load up
and release at any instance. The Blacktip’s main technical features
include; a progressive four batten layout in all sizes. Precision
tapered battens on the lower two battens to keep the draft forward and
locked in. A Q-Ply luff panel for a smooth transition of power, combined
with a vertical kevlar load line that maintains the skin tension from
top to tack, preserving the longevity of the materials while providing a
light-weight sail that will stay intact for many seasons to come. The
Blacktip is also available in an extra durable full X-Ply version, the
22/23 Blacktip presents the cutting edge of sail design for the
hardcore wave slayer looking for a manoeuvre oriented wave sail to push
their wavesailing to the next level!
