MATRIX: FREERIDE DREAM!
More power, more control: Fully redesigned, the new Matrix impresses all with a lower foot, and the fifth batten that crosses the boom area. The result is a state-of-the-art freeride design with a lower center of gravity and a more compact outline. No matter what conditions you sail, the Matrix will get the job done!
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
The new Matrix is equipped with six battens and NO cambers. The new Radial Panel Layout optimally distributes the forces on the sail, it also allows a better profile alignment, more harmonious twist behavior while making the sail more robust. The foot area is free of folds and the bottom window of the sail was again reinforced. The three composite tube battens ensure that the power zone remains stable even in hammering gusts. With the new shorter boom and shorter mast, the Matrix is a modern performance-oriented sail. The new changes make it quite different to the Cross. The new outline in the foot area makes it easier to pull the sail on the board. It is easy to rig, jibes like a wave sail, but once you hook in it develops turbo speed, like a real slalom sail. Whether you have a Freeride, Freerace or a thoroughbred Slalom board under your feet, the Matrix will deliver performance . The pressure point is further back allowing for effortless planing without pumping, even with larger and heavier boards. It is designed to work perfectly with our Gaastra 75 and 55 percent carbon masts.
CEDRIC BORDES SAYS
“In the jibe I thought I had a wave sail in my hands, but when I hit some gusts into the sail, I realized that I held a slalom sail. The Matrix is a chameleon, perfect for freeriding!”
