€639.00

Designed for: Slalom speed seekers, who are looking for an easier race cambered sail, with less ripping out power, especially for an easier execution of jibes. Less weight in the front of the sail to allow to contrast the power with less energy, Lighter to water start and jibe. If you are still looking to be a national champion, with the AC-K PRO there is no need to look for a full race sail to win, when we can offer this super naked version. You can finally keep top speed and performance for hours on the water, without having to use the energy of a full race sail.

 

Nowadays, if you are looking to have a cam sail with high performance, you are forced to go for the same no compromise sail as the pro:  a race sail, can be very demanding and taking lots of energy for no reason, unless you are using it on a race course. Other option would be to choose for a 3-cam sail where the performance will be highly reduced by changing outline, batten number, cam number, sleeve size, opening of the leach and many other aspects. Our development was to bring our AC-one sail to keep its pedigree, but from this, develop an easier version in the characteristics which was needed. As all the features of our AC-One were already super friendly, the only thing we did, was to reduce the mast sleeve size, which would bring  power that only pro sailors would need. Allow a softer and faster jibe rotation, and to have a batten construction which would be easy to replace in case of accidents. The new AC-K pro benefits from the same 3 XXL cams which allow an amazing rotation, 7 battens without having complicated glued or pined parts, same outline, leach opening and stance as the AC-one. A lighter AC-One version, ready to compete at any level, and dedicated for a larger public that were forced before to choose race sails for no reason.  A real Super Naked from the race sails.  3cam sails, 4 cams sails: wording belonging to the past life of slalom. Now a cam sails it’s either for Racing at pro level, or to race between your friends, and it has 2 names: AC-ONE, or AC-K pro.

 

Its character:   Take all the goodies from a full-on competition slalom sail, reduce its mast sleeve and shallow a little the profile. This is the AC-K PRO. Featuring a medium sized luff pocket, a sweet smooth rotating 3-cam set-up combined with a lot of low-end power to get planing nice and early. The AC-K PRO is a high-speed powerhouse that is easy to handle and sits ridiculously light in your hands, keeping the board at a steady hover above the water to give you the best possible control and speed out of your kit. The AC-K PRO is an incredibly fast sail to use, flattering even the nervous rider with a blistering performance.

Instead, take the AC-K PRO in any conditions, and will just deliver all the time. From early planning to overpowered conditions. Going fast was never so easy! Let the pressure build steadily, lock your stance in place, hold on and let the magic happen. Slicing through the air, it is effortless to cover ground on and whilst rapid on all points of sail, seemed to point beautifully close to the wind. The center of effort is low, focused around the rider and providing feedback through both hands. It is just so balanced and requires little technical input or energy expenditure from the pilot, enabling them to prolong their drag-racing sessions. The faster you sail, the lighter the AC-K PRO ’s handling, which is also very apparent in transition, thereby encouraging you to enter and maintain your speed throughout

 

On the Water AC-K PRO : It’s not about freeriding, it’s nothing less than pure acceleration, speed and control. This is what is experienced as soon as you close the gap of the AC-K PRO . The power is balanced between both arms and the sail keeps accelerating without having to pull or work with your arms. Just relax them and let your body weight sit comfortable on the balanced profile from the sail. The light feels and easy rotation of the sail, will let you enjoy and execute perfect fast jibing without having to lose energy and power. As the wind picks up the sail becomes lighter, more fun and will not demand to switch to a smaller sail so easily.
