The Ace is our dedicated freestyle sail, designed to give maximum lift, stability, and easy ducking. The key strength of the Ace is its ability to go from entirely neutral to full power in an instant. The tight leach allows you to effortlessly duck the sail through the wind into a back winded position. The Ace features a lightweight panel layout that makes handling a breeze. The high-cut foot allows the sail to move around your body position without throwing you off balance and this combined with the Dacron panel along the luff will provide you with instantaneous power to direct into your moves. The Kevlar Stretch Control System keeps the draft in place as well as making the sail more durable. The fith generation of Ace features large monofilm panels, this give a more direct feeling and provide a more effective power delivery. The new panel layout also features a light-weight Q-Ply in the luff panel, combined with a vertical kevlar load line from top to tack. This helps to control the profile as well as the longevity of the materials, hence a lightweight sail that will stay intact for many seasons to come. Dedicated freestylers will rig the Ace with less downhaul with a tighter leach for maximum lift, freestyle wave riders can choose to apply slightly more downhaul for more control in a wider range of conditions. Our design team has also fine-tuned the aspect ratio with slight adjustments to the mast and boom lengths that have further improved the balance between low-end power and high-end control, allowing you to get on your smaller sizes earlier and stay on them for longer if the wind picks up.
