The PWA Slalom World Champion sail
The PWA Slalom World Champion sail.
Designed for: No compromise slalom sailors, who know
how to attack jibes and are ready to feel the power of the beast when
flipping the sail. For those who don?t just want to be on the podium,
but want to be first!
The tests on magazines say: The fastest sail in downwind slalom racing.
The name AC-One derives simply from the initials and sail number of
Andrea Cucchi put together. Point-7 founder, head of development, team
manager and the man who last year decided to create a group of young
professionals and have them train together under the name ?BLACK TEAM?.
It?s character on land: Approach the AC-ONE and
start feeling both a little scared and excited about what?s about to
happen! The feeling is amplified tenfold when you launch the
deep-drafted, scary-looking, PWA World Champion race sail.
It?s character on water: Leaving the beach though
you think ?this is quite easy actually? and then dare to crank up the
throttle and see how you get on. Set it to 6th gear and be ready to
absolutely fly! Why? Downforce! The AC-One pushes the deck down,
eliminating any unwanted nose-lift from lively boards and absolutely
charges through ? or rather over ? chop and swell. Yes, it?s insanely
powerful. In fact, it is mega, turbo powerful ? the acceleration is
insane. But the force pins down the hull and leaves you in a nice, high
position of control over the thumping V12 at the end of your arms. When
it comes to jibing, the entrance to the jibe is easy thanks to its light
profile at the rear part of the sail, but be ready to handle the
boosted power of its acceleration once you flip the sail. If you think
it?s not easy to harness the acceleration, well, this is what our
champions need to be champions at the PWA! If you are looking for
something easier then, for sure, we advise our AC-K. But if you are
technically skilled, you will enjoy each part of its performance, and
then you?ll feel instant acceleration out of turns and dirty air.
Race Results: Men PWA SLALOM WORLD CHAMPION. Women PWA Vice World Champion. PWA Slalom Constructor Sail Champion.
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: Not only testing the sail for
straight-line speeds, but also checking how the sail would perform in
the starts and jibing around the marks with seven other riders closely
in pursuit, just as in real competition conditions for which a racing
sail is developed. To have the fastest sail on the race course. Comfort
on the straight line, power out of the jibes, turbo boosted
acceleration, light feel when carving through the jibe. Downward force
to pin the board to give the best balance to hover over any water
Outline: No compromise Hi-Aspect for
endless speed. The base automatically closes the gap on your slalom
board. A negative leech to speed up the exiting of the wind. A light
feeling on the back hand, giving extra speed and acceleration. The top
of the sail has a smaller head for more stability in stronger wind.
Battens: 8 tubular battens, with 8
different setups to follow the pure slalom foil profile from the sail,
including 3 batten construction in batten seven and six.
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 from 7.1 up to 9.2, and the
lower eyelet for all sizes under 7.1
Profile and Foil: The front boosted profile
set by the 4 cams allows a stable entry for the wind to pin down the
board and give stability and pressure, which transforms into drive,
power and amazing acceleration. 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 when needed. As
the wind increases, the sail will automatically self-adjust its power,
thanks to the S-Shaping, along the whole middle upper leech opening.
Just hook in and hold on, as the sail will not limit its speed in auto
pilot mode. The deep profile will carve the board amazingly, and the
flatter foil on the back will give little pressure on the back-hand,
allowing comfort through the curve. Be ready to take the sail on the new
tack as it will boost you forward with extreme acceleration.
Cut out: Each size has a well-tested and
different size cut-out to allow a comfortable S-shaping release. This
brings the sail to have the right S-Shaping performance of the cross
batten to allow, according to the size and conditions, the best
compromise between power and release. It will make sailing more
comfortable at all times, and the need to adjust the setting of your
adjustable outhaul less. 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 improved reflex.
Cams: Different sized cams are placed in the sail to
determine the light pressure and fast rotation on the higher cam and
stability, profile and power on the lower cams.
Rigging: The AC-1 needs to have the mast inserted on
top of the cams. After pulling downhaul to 15cm of its final setting
you can either put on the boom, and later pop on the cams before putting
the final downhaul on, or place the cams on with the right technique,
pulling on full downhaul, and then putting the boom on. You will find
more instructions and videos on the support section on our website.
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 battens, without over-tightening them.
