SIGNATURE RECORD SAIL

We could easily go on and on about the records this sail has already broken on multiple occasions… However, we would much rather keep it simple and explain its virtues…

BLISTERING SPEED AND ACCELERATION

It’s all about the right combination! The KONCEPT combines the blistering top speed and acceleration of a full-blooded race sail with the user friendliness of a freeride sail.

LIGHTWEIGHT ERGONOMICS

Thanks to the lightweight ergonomics of the KONCEPT, you will hardly know it’s there when you are blasting down your local speed strip and setting new personal speed records. With the 3 cam set-up, the KONCEPT offers the perfect balance and stability you would certainly expect from a super high performance race sail without it becoming a monster, that only giants can hang on to.

COMBINING FEATURES

This is all achieved by a combination of reasonably high foil tension, 3 cams, 7 carbon composite battens and a moderately wide luff sleeve in super lightweight hi-tech 2 mil tri-axial X-ply.

CHANGES FOR 2018

The 2017 Koncepts were working so well already, we had difficulty finding much we could improve upon in this sail. However, we did make some minor changes which proved very worthwhile in testing.

For 2018, sizes 6.2 and down gained a little more seam shaping at battens 5 and 6 to improve drive and bottom end power. Furthermore, twist was increased at batten 4 to improve top end, internal reinforcements were added, engineering and materials were further examined and some changes were made to reduce weight. We have also modified the SDM cambers to improve rotation and have enhanced the batten materials.

MORE LIGHTWEIGHT ERGONOMICS

We have used extra hi-tech 2 mil tri-axial laminate to the upper leech area which reduces swing weight, enhancing the lightweight ergonomics of the sail. The addition of extra luff round and seam shaping in the lower foil of the KONCEPT will create a more locked-in feeling and a more balanced sail.

SPEED OPTIMISED PROFILE

KONCEPT sizes 4.2 to 6.2 are optimised for speed sailing with more shape in the lower foil, while the 6.6 to 9.5 are more Slalom oriented and faster cross wind.

RDM VS SDM CAMBERS

KONCEPT sizes 5.4 up to 9.5 are delivered with standard SDM cambers; sizes 5.0 and down are supplied with RDM cams. A replacement set is available to make the switch between SDM and RDM.
