The 2022 SpeedFreak is our most comfortable freeride sail for light wind flat-water sailing in a similar style as our Dacron SuperFreak.
This season we again reduced the sail’s weight. The 10m is barely over 10 pounds! That is 47 grams per square meter of sail! But the FEEL of the sail in your hands is even lighter than the physical weight. The rotation of the camber is so smooth you will barely notice it is even there.
The SpeedFreak is an amazingly smooth riding sail. It is much easier to sail than a comparable monofilm freeride sail as the dacron absorbs the gusts, and the sail can be pumped onto a plane in very little wind. The ride is completely quiet and jibing is so smooth you would never guess you on a speed type sail with a single camber.
The sail is not critical of your sailing style either. If your harness lines are a little out of balance, or your outhaul is slightly too tight or too loose, this sail can work with you. It turns lighter wind sailing into a completely low stress pleasure. It is no slouch for top end speed either equipped with race sail style tube battens for draft stability and weight reduction.
With a super smooth rotating single cam below the boom the larger sizes stay fully shaped at all times. Full power while jibing or water starting and delivering a stable pull between gusts and lulls.
The main body of the sail is made of 3 different weight Dacrons with the high-tension downhaul supported with 125 micron Dimension X-Ply®. The sail is available with or without a PVC window.
