Race performance without cams
Designed for: Slalom speed seekers, who don?t like the hassle of cams.
If cambered sails are not your cup of tea, then the sheer performance
specs and looks of the AC-X should be the one for you, that is if you
are up or it!
The tests on magazines say: The fastest slalom sail
with no cams ever, without compromise. A magazine test winner from 2014
to 2017 for its high-end speed and control. 10+ has been its vote in
Its character: The AC-X is developed to be the
fastest sail on the water and has proved itself on many magazine tests,
without having a wide mast sleeve and cambers. The high-end performance
will give you the high speed that you have always dreamed about, with
minimal effort and easy handling characteristics. Probably the lightest
seven batten no cam sail on the market, and high-end performance of the
sail that excels even further in over-powered conditions. Power and
enhanced stability in both low and high wind conditions, combined with a
very locked-in feeling that is only comparable to a cambered sail.
Race Results: Winner of many national slalom championships in different categories
Developed and designed by: The Point-7 Black Team. A
team of professional sailors and designers who have proved themselves
by designing the winning sail for the World Champion in the PWA Slalom
Development Target: Designed to take out all the
annoying details that cammed sails offer, but aiming to have pure slalom
racing performance to annoy cammed sails. All this whilst allowing the
rider to save more energy and be able to stay on the water all day.
Battens: 7 tubular battens to follow the pure slalom foil profile from the sail. Each batten is assembled easy for replacements.
Eyelets: The choice to have two eyelets.
The lower eyelet to create more opening of the lower leech to increase
control in stronger wind, and the higher eyelet to increase power and
acceleration. We do advise the upper eyelet, unless you are a
Profile: The increase of profile in the
front increases the drive for earlier planning and acceleration in
lighter winds. The drive is fundamental for carving the board better in
the jibes. A deep front profile allows stability in stronger wind,
therefore increasing comfort and control.
Foil: As the wind enters the sail it forms a
deep and fast front profile along the mast to allow stability. The wind
swiftly moves to give power exactly where the stance of our body is
comfortably centered on the board, and releases quickly and smoothly
through the back of the sail, to allow light back hand pressure for
pushing on the fin. As the wind increases, the sail will automatically
self-adjust its power, thanks to the S-Shaping, along the whole middle
upper leach opening.
Cut out: A bigger cut out than a normal
freeride sail, has been introduced allowing more S-shaping release as
the wind and speed increases through the foil. This results in giving us
the chance to increase our water performance without having to exert
extra power and energy. The shape of the cut out comfortably welcomes
the back end of the boom.
Body Material: Mostly assembled by the 4mil Anti
UV-Black Laminate. Highly responsive and reactive for world champion
performance. 5mil Anti UV-Black X-ply base panel for protection from
accidents. Clear monofilm window for perfect vision through the sail.
X-ply batten pockets for lighter weight and better reflex.
Rigging: The AC-X is straightforward to rig, requiring a
reasonable amount of force to counter its moderate luff curve and apply
the downhaul required, guided by the visual aid in the top panel. It
can rig both rdm and sdm mast, but from 6.5 up, the use of the sdm will
give a better performance. Playing with the outhaul will boost up power
or increase control. Tighten the lower 2 battens and the top batten, but
just remove wrinkles on the other batten without overtightening them.
