Savage ’13


The Savage our high performance no cam sail. It resembles its cambered sister, the Phantom in the 7 batten configuration with a dropped tack. These sails share many of the features of our race winning Vapor in a more accessible and easy package. The additional tube batten gives added stability and higher wind range at the top end. The drop tack allows a better close of the gap and a more tensioned and fuller foot outline. The speed potential is a couple of knots higher than the Matrix. The drop clew with the outhaul pulley is more pronounced producing a moderate boom length with a relatively wide sail chord at this point, adding both power and control. Having no cams, the rotation in this quasi race sail is like on a wave sail; this is particularly nice on the smaller sizes in strong wind. A 5,5 has been added and the biggest size is a new 8,6.

Bottom Line:

All the advantages of a race sail without all the disadvantages of cambers! Jibes like a free ride sail, has speed like a race sail. What more could you ask for?

  1. Use of C-Film // for better durability and performance
  2. Radial Panel Layout 2G: improved layout for perfect and locked in sail shape, smooth profile, twist control and durability
  3. 3D EVA mast protector // for maximum shock-absorbing and minimal weight
  4. 3D mast head protector // for maximum shock-absorbing and minimal weight
  5. dropped clew -// shorter boom, improved lower twist
  6. seven battens
  7. no cambers
  8. Drop tack with tension strap -//100% race sail performance
  9. Compact outline with shorter luff -// the power stays low in the sail
  10. Dynamic twist pattern -// smooth behavior and blistering acceleration
  11. 3D mast head protector // for maximum shock-absorbing and minimal weight
