Its character: The AC-X is developed to be the fastest sail on the water and has proved itself on many magazine tests, without having a wide mast sleeve and cambers. The high-end performance will give you the high speed that you have always dreamed about, with minimal effort and easy handling characteristics. Probably the lightest seven batten no cam sail on the market, and high-end performance of the sail that excels even further in over-powered conditions. Power and enhanced stability in both low and high wind conditions, combined with a very locked-in feeling that is only comparable to a cambered sail. Its low-cut foot encouraging the rider to lock it into a committed stance.
On the Water AC-X: It certainly has all the feel and drama of meaning business on the water Yes, it has no cams! No need to look twice on the sail sleeve: if you can’t believe that the sail has such a good performance with no cams, just go for the first jibe, and you will straight away realize that the AC-X has really no cams! The sail is balanced between both arms and delivers pure slalom performance to the board and fin, to keep the trim on the rail. The sail has the same wind range as a pure race sail, it has an amazing upwind performance for a non-cam sail, and a deeper Dacron profile implements a comfortable drive through the jibe. The profile with Dacron layers, absorbs the chop and waves allowing more control and enabling a higher average speed across the waters compared to the previous version. Once planing the acceleration, the AC-X provides is simply another level – it seems to find another gear with every subsequent gust. It demands being paired with a fast free-race or slalom board – something that has the capacity to keep up with it! When you venture into powered and overpowered conditions, you discover the AC-X’s true personality - it is a true free-race thoroughbred, finding favour with the taller, heavier rider that can use the energy it delivers. The centre of effort is locked firmly in place yet comes from such a high location that it best suits those with an assertive riding style. It helps lift the rider’s stance and push the board’s speed, making it fly on its fin. Carry this speed into the turn and the AC-X has the balance and handling to reposition easily, the lower luff panel breathing to soften the delivery and provide the extra low- end power to complete the transition efficiently.
