The FoilGlide is NOT just a freeride sail with ‘Foil’ written on it… Specifically designed for foiling with focus on the following points;
This is one of the most important characteristics. And we do lightweight sails better than anyone.
Easier to pump. Doesn’t need the stiffness as rig load is reduced once up and flying.
Need to reduce any draft movement as it affects the trim. Better to keep everything constant. Cams keep the sail profile stable and minimize any movement.
Better control. The shorter boom length allows you to easily adjust your stance.
After the success of our foil racing sail, the HyperGlide, we have created a user-friendly freeride version – the FoilGlide. Sharing a lot of technology and ideology these sails are the ultimate for foiling.
The high aspect design is more stable, more efficient and more controllable. Keeps the boom lengths short and easy to manage. Combined with a tighter leech, the leverage is increased which gets you up and foiling with a smaller sail in lighter winds.
With only 4 battens and lightweight construction, the physical weight of these sails is significantly less than other sails. For foiling this makes maintaining trim much easier, and just a lot more fun to use. Fewer battens, as well as less skin tension, makes the FoilGlide soft and easy to pump up onto the foil.
The FoilGlide is THE choice for freeride foiling.
