Directly derived from the RS:RACING development program, the V8 offers true race sail performance without the downsides.
Extreme early planning, soft rotation, wide wind range, great upwind and top end control, the V8 has the extra power and drive needed to accelerate and go fast on high performance boards.
The Twin cams and deep profile will help you keep your planing through the lulls and maintain top-end speed.
The sail configuration makes it considerably lighter in maneuvers and less physical than pure race sails. Slalom for everyone / non stop planing.
Race Like Feel Performance
Race inspired luff sleeve and deep, powerful profile combined with airflow battens layout and integracams.
Easy Handling of A Freeride Sail
Easy rigging - requires less downhaul tension than a pure race sail and only 2 cams which also make jibing rotation extremely soft and effortless.
It actually became our sail of choice when learning, testing and developing our Windfoil program thanks to early planning and profile stability when on the foil.
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.
