Watch out here we come! Introducing the 2015 Vapor Race Line up- A lighter and faster sail than anything yet to be produced. More effortless in the hands, superior acceleration with constant forward drive.“What’s New?”
A straight Leech on slalom sizes 5,2 to 9.6 allows these sails to knife through the wind with less resistance. A Posi Leech on Formula sizes 10,0 11,0 12,5 to keep upwind ability and drive in lighter winds A Higher aspect ratio to capture more wind, turning it into more power. A deeper shape in the lower region and in front along the luff sleeve.
More Flexibility in the rig for all sizes giving more control in rough waters. A New 2Ply mast sleeve construction on slalom sizes for more durability. A slightly more narrow Mast sleeve in the top half of the sail for better aerodynamics. An additional vertical luff panel to control the increased shaping down low.
The GA Vapor is a no compromise racing sail. The R&D process continues throughout the entire year to keep the windsurfers winning. In 2014, Gaastra won the IFCA slalom world title and the Formula world and european championships. The new 2015 models have been beating these sails already for the past months! They can’t wait to get them on the race course!
Gaastra has implemented their new design features with new outlines, compact batten positioning and stabilized head configurations. On the slalom sizes they adopted a straight leech as it was the best compromise for downwind racing, while on the formula sizes the posi leech works better with its added drive upwind. We increased the aspect ratio on the slalom sails making them more agile around the jibes and with increased shaping in the bottom and in the luff higher up in the sail performance is at a new level. Gaastra also worked on the flexibility of the rig fine tuning it for every single size. They changed the mast sleeve material on the slalom sizes and reduced its width in the top half of the sail. On the Formula sizes they redesigned them all and put a new outline with a much smaller head in all the sizes. Gaastra changed the batten positioning finding a more efficient upwind power zone, which helped us to take one batten off the 12,5 making it an 8 batten 4 camber configuration like on the other sizes. A newly designed head and clew fairings for additional protection of those exposed areas of the sail make the sails much more durable.
The trademark features like C-Film, Radial panel layout, SAS System, new designed tack fairing, all combine to make the 2015 Vapor in a league of its own.
