The SuperFreak Maui Edition took everything we loves about the SuperFreak, (and that is nearly everything) and combined it with all the most contemporary pure wave sail features.
The result for 2017 is again a lighter sail with extreme maneuverability, and is very lightweight yet tough. It is designed for wave riding and also for freestyle as there is more room for your body to move in extreme moves. Landing jumps like a back loop is easier with the looser leech. Power is strong; with better pull out of low wind situations due to the increased shape below the boom.
The 2 battens directly above the boom are both 90% in length, stopping just short of the mast sleeve. This batten design provides a super controllable, luffable sail that can be powered or de-powered in an instant. New for 2017 is the addition of our even lighter .55mm thickness lightweight OX Webbing sleeve that is nearly indestructible and absorbs 80% less water than the original OX webbing. It makes a big difference is sail weight as the older sails used a very thick 2.5mm thick polyester webbing that was tough, but absorbed a lot of water as the sail aged. In the 5.3m for example a PVC window Ox webbing SFME once soaked with water is 1.5KG heavier than these new sails!
The SFME now is made with SLAMLAM® laminated window for lighter weight and extreme cold water durability. Overall the sails have lost between 300 and 500g of dry weight in this new model vs. older ones!
All SuperFreaks are available in custom colors, please let us know how you would like your new sail to look, alternatively you can choose one of the production colors.
