The RS:Racing EVO XII is more than an evolution from its predecessor; it is a step towards a new design, fully embracing the high aspect design we introduced in our Flight series.
With racing competition formats and courses evolving towards a mix of Slalom and Foiling, we want to be sure to be ahead of the game, ensuring the new RS:Racing EVOXII performs equally well on fin as on foil.
The EVOXII features a moderate high aspect ratio, where the larger sail sizes have a relatively higher aspect ratio than the smaller sail sizes. This design ensures that also the smaller sizes have that extra lift and efficiency, allowing the rider to get the maximum out of the sail.
Thanks to the high aspect ratio, we could eliminate the larges sizes from the range, as the 9.0 will perform in the same way as a 9.4 in lighter winds.
The high aspect ratio especially impacts the luff length and boom size needed per sail. The bigger the sail, the more pronounced is its high aspect ratio, meaning that the bigger size sails will need smaller booms in relation.
The RS:Racing EVOXII will come with new sizes and larger gaps in between, as we have improved the wind range; meaning we can cover wider wind ranges in less sizes. RS:Racing EVO XII - the art of racing, made for you.
NEILPRYDE RACING PROGRAM
A mark that declares the concentrated essence of NeilPryde. Sails with the best technology, speed, power and enhanced specification, designed to
let you experience the unexpected. Sails made to compete and win.
Over 30 years of undisputed leadership in slalom and speed events didn’t come by chance. It came from the hands and hearts of the best racers in the world, the best designers and top engineers. At NeilPryde we know how to bring them together and make the fastest sails in the world. Since we started the racing program in the early 1980’s, the objective has always been the same: Create the fastest and most advanced sails yet, through continuous research, development and innovation paired with an insatiable appetite for speed.
The technology, ideas and concepts that are created and refined during the RS: Racing development process are our guiding design principles, ultimately applied to all of the sails in the NeilPryde range. The RACING range stands for countless wins on the water, wins that are based on the continuous efforts our team makes, to create the fastest and most advanced sail yet.
>PROGRESSIVE HIGH ASPECT RATIO
With the 2020 series of the RS: Racing EVO we are introducing the high aspect ratio design that could already be found on the flight Evo. While the high aspect ratio is much more defined on the bigger sail sizes, it is less so defined on the smaller sizes. Thanks to this progressive high aspect ratio design, we are fully leveraging this design’s benefits. The sails become equally controllable on foil as well as on fin.
But what does high aspect mean for the sailor?
The high aspect ratio of the sail adds stability and helps to improve the stability of the sail, especially when foiling, this is important, as you don’t want any change in the position of the draft. As soon as the center of effort moves unpredictably, the stability of the flight gets interrupted.
Higher efficiency - lift is created by the leading edge. On a high aspect sail, the leading edge is much longer relative to the sail size and this extra lift creates a more efficient sail for the rider. One of the major drag components is the tip vortex. On a high aspect ratio sail this is relatively less compared to the overall sail size, hence the effect is minimised.
Twist shaping concept - Just like its predecessors, the sail twist allows more release, so you fee like you have gained an extra gear. The EVOXII opens instantly, gaining that moment of acceleration when going through a gust, feeling much more stable and preventing the centre of effort from moving back in the sail.
The result is reduced backhand pressure that gives smooth acceleration boosts in gusts.
>QUADRUPLE LUFF PANEL LAYOUT.
The Flight EVO II features four continuous, durable, stretch-resistant and lightweight luff panels that carry most of the sail body shaping. This configuration stabilises the critical section draft position while providing an increased film thickness proportional to downhaul load distribution. Continuous panels eliminate horizontal seams crossing the highly loaded leading edge, which increases response of the sail. Introducing this stable leading edge platform allows very high downhaul loads and integrated clear pocket construction.
>COMPONENT SLEEVE CONSTRUCTION.
Combining different materials in the sleeve sections allows us to achieve optimum profile entry stability and elasticity, smooth rotation and light weight.
By removing any stitching that could come in contact with the mast we created a seamless leading edge. This increases precision during the assembly process, reducing weight at the leading edge and creating a perfectly clean profile entry to eliminate construction weak spots.
Lightweight TetoronTM Upper-front section offers the necessary elasticity and durability to resist direct mast contact.
A low stretch DyneemaTM Armour Web section can take high downhaul tension and is critical in stabilizing the profile entry, providing smooth bridging between UltraCams.
A tapered strip of TetoronTM along the back edge of the sleeve where it connects to the sail body is used to provide the necessary elasticity in this area together with improved durability.
The bottom part of the sleeve is finished in our durable and elastic Luff Glide material allowing for important smooth rotation.
>LEADING EDGE RIB.
Carbon ribs sewn onto the upper sleeve’s leading edge stabilize this critical section of the profile on the highest battens where cambers are not used.
This helps maintain the sail’s profile clean, reducing drag, allowing higher top speand ensuring proper rotation.
//Mast sleeve window - clear window in the mast sleeve for better visibility during racing. Especially when arriving at the first buoys. This was the most required feature from our team riders to improve racing.
//Carbon leech mini battens - provide maximum support with minimum weight.
//Visual trimming system - downhaul tension guide. Max and Min. Recommended leech release points. Located on the upper leech between battens #2 and #3.
//Dual boom length compact clew - has been slightly improved and redesigned to avoid contact of sail edge body with the boom. Outer and inner clew position straight alignment. Retains same clew height and boom to mast rake on both clew positions, reduces weight and prevents rear part of the foot touching the water when jibing.
//Carbon composite battens - carbon tubes are placed int eh central section of the sail body, adding extra stability and preventing the profile from moving back. The lightness of Carbon battens minimise the swing weight which increases the reflex of the leech which is something really unique in our sail.
//Batcams - batten tensioner system allowing precise tuning and secured positive locking Without the need for tools.
//Loopsters - allowing easy rigging through loop to loop system and optimised adjustable outhaul function that reduces the friction and eliminates any crossing lines (crucial when using adjustable outhaul system).
//Ultracams - suspended camber system improves sail rotation and acceleration out of jibes. Simultaneous tuning of battens and cambers makes sail tuneable for different mast diameters and camber pressure.
//Fuse pockets - overlapping body panels create a sleeve for battens, eliminating the need for traditional, separate batten pockets. This saves on unnecessary weight, simplifies construction and creates a fully symmetrical batten cavity, delivering a fully equal sail on both tacks.
//Kevlar batten bridges - to distribute the high downhaul load crossing the battens.
//Aerodynamic boom cutout closure - prevents the apparent wind from lowing into the mast sleeve and generating drag.
//Batten chafe protection - abrasion resistant PU print to help protect the battens from damage caused by rigging or boom contact.
