CONTINUOUS R&D

Our vision for the flagship sail of the KA Sail performance range was quite simple: create a sail that allows any serious racer to reach his or her full potential! To achieve this vision, we are consequently continuously developing, testing, tuning and refining these sails. Meet the KA.RACE 2017!

8 BATTENS / 4 CAMS

The KA.Race set-up, with its 8 carbon/composite battens and 4 cambers, is a full-blooded professional race sail created solely to win. Bred to win! No compromises have been made! A powerful lower foil provides huge power and acceleration, while the slippery upper profile minimises drag, delivering limitless top end speed. The relatively high foil tension in the KA.RACE teamed with the carbon/composite battens and 4 cambers enables draft stability levels that should be experienced to be believed!

SMALL TWEAKS …

Rather than making massive radical changes to the KA.RACE for 2017, we have improved on the highly successful 2016 design by means of multiple small tweaks and changes, that combined push the performance level even higher.

LIGHT SOFT AND FEEL

The result of these small tweaks is a lighter and softer feel with a bit less pull from up-high, which makes the sail easier to lock down especially in rougher water.

HI-TECH MATERIALS

Extra hi-tech materials in the upper luff sleeve of the KA.RACE have impacted the mast bend and leech twist for a lighter feel, enhanced acceleration, speed and stability. We added luff round in the lower foil which has improved stability. The increased luff curve provides a fuller profile in the lower section of the sail, which has greatly improved its low-end sailing and end speed.

REDUCTION OF SWING WEIGHT

A notable feature of the KA.Race is the hi-tech 2mil tri-axial laminate in the upper leech and foot panel. This reduces the sail’s overall weight and assists control by reducing the swing weight and softening the ergonomics, especially noticeably in rough conditions.

All KA Sail Race sails can be used on either RDM or SDM masts; sails in sizes 6.3 and up come standard with SDM cambers and the 5.5 comes standard with RDM cambers. Replacement RDM camber sets are available separately.
