The 2017 GPX has been in development for 5 years; it is a fully mature design with virtually no flaws. We wanted to combine the best characteristics of race sails, but eliminate any rigging hassle or technical knowledge to get the most from this sail.
The result is a powerful, fast and fun freeride sail which morphs from a super fast flat water freerace design in the larger sizes into a more low-end power bump and jump sail in the smaller sizes.
To ensure that the sail remained durable we chose the SlamLam® window as used in the wave sails together with the LightWhite® laminate in the upper body to reduce weight and maintain strength. New for 2017 is the addition of our .55mm thickness lightweight OX Webbing sleeve that is nearly indestructible.
The compact 3D shaping enables riders to use shorter masts and enhances rider control, and overall rig weight is reduced. The sailing experience will be best when combined with the ULTRA 100% RDM however the GPX is more forgiving and will be excellent on any of our masts.
