Gun Sails Flash 2008


     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is Gun Sails’ freeride sail; a no cam, early planer with good acceleration and a decent top end speed. The main difference between the 07 and 08 models is the extra tube battens giving better control and a more stable centre of effort when the sail is at full power.

Over to Gun Sails designer Renato Morlotti:

“The Flash sail becomes completely neutral in the hands; the camless mast sleeve rotates quickly and smoothly, a big plus in manoeuvres. With only one trim adjustment the Flash covers a very wide wind range and offers superb performance, even in low winds. A high-output and performance-oriented freeride machine for all riders who want to experience the maximum of fun and pure speed”

Features

  • Easy trimming with comfort pulley and low sleeve friction
  • More centre of effort stability and planing power from multiple tube battens
  • Multiple seam protection and foot guard avoid abrasion while uphauling the sail
  • Airfoil leech design for more control
