NP V8 2019
2019 Neil Pryde V8
The V8 gives race like feel and performance thanks to
a race inspired luff sleeve and deep, powerful profile,
alongside the easy handling of a freeride sail. Easier
rigging – requires less downhaul tension than a pure
race sail and only 2 integracams which also make jibing
rotation extremely soft and effortless. V8 is our best
option to transition into Slalom and a great Slalom sail
option for girls. But that’s not all. It actually became our
sail of choice when learning, testing and developing our
Windfoil program. Suitable for freeride, freerace, slalom
and pure foil boards.
Moderate sleeve width combining
stability and aerodynamic benefits of wide
sleeve racing sails with improved handling
and reduced weight.
Twin Cam design uses cams in critical
area to support deepest profile in the
boom area without sacrificing rotation.
The profile, supported by these 2 small
cams rotates much easier than full size
race cams, allows the sail to respond
directly to the back hand.
Integrated Batten Pocket construction for
a fully symmetrical batten cavity. TECHNOLOGY
Deep profile in lower body section for
controllable power combined with very
smooth leech release and open head twist
for acceleration and control in the gusts.
Custom laminated clew for optimized
strength and load distribution. It features
internally laminated Kevlar stripes that
distribute the loads in the Clew area.
