With its outline coming straight from the RS:RACING EVO11, the SPEEDSTER is an explosive performance Freeride sail. More user friendly than a cambered sail (easier to rig, uphaul and jibe), the Speedster is more balanced, offers greater performance and wind range than a classic freeride sail.
It delivers an exhilarating combination of performance, speed and acceleration. Slalom without cambers.
Handling and Performance
Combination of a narrow sleeve without cambers and race inspired luff curves.
Power and Stability
The tubular battens configuration allows the center of effort to remain in place and reduce the weight while giving optimum profile shape and stability.
Speed and Acceleration
Battens are laid out angled up from the mast and, as a result, they end up laying horizontal and parallel to the airflow when sailing, which helps cleaning the airflow along the sail body and reduces drag.
Our exclusive custom printing technology allows us to print the films prior to lamination, giving us the flexibility to use UV resistant multi-coloured custom graphics. The print is of minimal thickness, reducing weight and producing a higher definition of colour. During lamination, the printed side is placed on the inside of the film, which drastically reduces wear and tear. NeilPryde 2020 sails' colors are made to last an eternity.
We have taken out traditional, seperate batten pockets by overlapping body panels to efficiently create a sleeve for battens. This reduces unnecessary weight, simplifies construction and creates a fully symmetrical batten cavity, eliminating the tendency of traditional batten pockets to load differently from one tack to another.
Double stitching is used on all critical seams across our sails, allowing them to endure prolonged exposure to high loads and impacts.
