The revitalized Firelight will take you back to when we first released this sail. Lighter in weight than the past 3 seasons, this new Firelight feels as light as the original without any loss of structural integrity. New for 2017 is the new .55mm lightweight OX Webbing sleeve that is nearly indestructible.
The Firelight feels like an "automatic" powered sail with no need to pump up onto a plane. These sails now handle higher winds with more grace than the older cut.
Once on the water this sail has a light and direct feeling in the hands, which redefines possibilities in your wave and freeride sailing. Whether you sail in onshore bump and jump or mast high Ho'okipa you will complete more moves, build confidence and develop skills faster.
The Firelight is an "automatic" sail that rigs easily, and pulls you up on a plane faster than any of our other wave sails. This is a favorite of the sailors at Kanaha on Maui who sail hundreds of days a year.
The range was designed to rig on shorter masts with the 6.0m perfectly suited to a 400cm and the 4.7m on a 370cm mast; this further reduces overall rig weight.
The key materials used are the Technora corner reinforcements and the super LightWhite® laminate made exclusively for Hot Sails Maui supplied by USA based market leader Challenge Sailcloth. These exotic materials enable us to deliver a super light and responsive sail, which is built to survive the toughest of conditions.
