The Turbo GT utilises cams to enhance foil stability and induce pre-set profile for power and drive through gusts and lulls.
All cams are positioned below the boom to lock the power zone very low in the sail where it can most easily be controlled. Swing weight is also improved by lowering all the hardware and allowing the upper sections to flex and exhaust freely.
The Turbo GT can be run on either RDM or SDM masts. Incredible rotation is the advantage on the RDM mast, and increased stability is the benefit of an SDM mast. Both options will deliver blazing speed, early planing and an ultralight feel.
For 2020 significant gains were made in speed and stability;
AERO-LINE battens and Mach2 twist patterns dramatically improve the aerodynamics for a faster sail.
Increased skin tension and a refined batten skeleton improves stability and extends the wind range.
The Turbo GT delivers cam performance.
SEAMLESS HEAD PANEL
This high abrasion area is made from only 1 panel and does not carry any exposed seams, preventing any potential weak point in this area. As a result, seam creep and seam-related failure have been eliminated.
A key component in stabilising the leading edge, the STABILIZOR PANEL is a panel of thicker 188 Monofilm. This material has minimal stretch in all directions and enables the high skin tension to create a very rigid profile for instant acceleration and maximum wind range.
Another benefit of the low stretch properties of 188 Monofilm is that the designed sail shape is maintained for longer as there is less long term stretch. This is pretty important as there are high downhaul loads which can cause most race sails to lose their original shape quickly.
BOOM HEIGHT REFERENCE
Boom height gauge for ease of reference.
3&4 ROLLER TACK PULLEY
Roller tack pulleys are matched to the sails downhaul requirements and aligned for friction free downhauling and threading ease. Rig your sails with the Severne Hardware Division extensions for function and simplicity.
THERMOFORMED TACK FAIRING
Protects your board from impact and neatly covers the foot detailing. It incorporates the rope stash pocket for easy storage of your downhaul rope.
MOLDED SOFT EDGE
With recessed grooving, covering any vulnerable stitching the moulded soft edge encloses the hard edge long the foot of the sail and protects the stitching from wear along the board non-skid.
SpiderFibre on the leech of the sail massively increases the perimeter strength and inhibits vertical stretch between the sail panels.
EM4 HIGH LOAD LAMINATE
Based on the proven eM3 platform, the high load eM4 material features twice the amount of X-Ply fibre and increased film thickness to maximise durability. This new material allows weight reduction whilst maintaining puncture resistance and tear strength. Used in the lower impact zone in the sail.
SEAMLESS FOOT CONSTRUCTION
A single panel in the foot area with hidden load patches and zero exposed stitching eliminates seam abrasion and seam creep in this high load area. Maximum durability and minimum weight.
The Dropped Clew allows for the reduction of boom and luff lengths; reducing the swing weight, increasing stability and promoting manoeuvrability.
