Model: North Sails Windsurfing Sail Volt 2013
The kings are dead, long live the king! After many successful years, the multiple award-winning sails ICE and DUKE with the longest development history. The best of the both areas is not being taken over by its worthy successor named the VOLT! Maximum energy and electrifying handling: In the smaller sizes the brand new VOLT is oriented towards the requirements of the wave riders, in the larger sizes towards the freestylers. The result is a sail line that can confidently be called the ultimate all-in-one freestyle wave range.
No other NorthSails sail adapts to the conditions so brilliantly and sailors are so enthusiastic about the huge range of use. No wonder since the whole team was involved into the testing. There was a huge list of desires and Kai Hopf had to dip deep into his bag of tricks in order to meet everyone’s wishes to make the VOLT a top performer in any of condition. Therefore countless innovations are hidden in every detail. Thanks to a short luff the new VOLT feels extremely compact and neutral making for incredible handling characteristics. In combination with the unique foot geometry, a low draft position, a modified leech tension plus the iMODULAR.DESIGN the VOLT remains extremely neutral on the wave and during difficult maneuvers. The sail immediately reacts to even the smallest impulse.
The sophisticated luff curve and the modified profile distribution ensure that despite the insane handling the low end power and the impressive performance make it the ideal choice for any spot on the planet. And all of this over an extremely wide wind range, as there is no other wave sail that covers such a wider range, especially when overpowered! Although all sizes are designed for RDM masts they still will work equally great on SDM masts. That’s the reason why the new VOLT feels softer, super easy to control and can be pumped easily. The VOLT series works best on single fin boards, which are driven over the rail.
