GPS 8.0 2014 only 300.00!

$950.00 $300.00

The latest evolution of the GPS builds on the amazing raw speed, light weight and handling of the 2013. Feedback from our team indicated that the only quality lacking was comfort and control in extreme conditions. So we have reduced the directness slightly and given the sail a little softer feel with more dynamic twist. In the real world control is directly translated to speed so the ability to keep the sail locked down and sheeted in no matter what delivers genuine speed benefits. In testing the sail has proven easier to sail with higher average speeds.

Description

New materials for 2014 is the improved lightweight HSL1.5A scrim used in the leech and the addition of Technora to the MPKT6 sleeve material for lower stretch.

Sizing has been adjusted to change the 8.8m2 to 9.0m2 and the 9.9 m2 has been deleted. The 9.0 m2 focuses primarily on low end power and early planning and can get you going in virtually the same wind as the 2013 9.9 m2.

The small sizes 5.0, 5.5 and 6.0 have been significantly softened with more twist (more so in 5.0 with less in 6.0) to better handle the large gusts and variations in windspeed inherent in strong wind sailing.

Also new for 2014 is the addition of a special 3 camber 7.8 specifically designed for race classes requiring 3 or less camber inducers. The other sizes may be used in 3 camber race classes by removing either the top or bottom camber inducer.
