The RS:Convertible joins NeilPryde’s windsurfing portfolio as THE lightweight, effortless foil and slalom sail. Both sails were developed in conjunction and as a result, both rigs offer extreme direct power in an industry leading light weight design. The sails feel as light as a no-cam sail, making them ideal for accommodating the more upright posture of foil sailing. When used with reduced outhaul tension, the sails generate a considerable amount of power, ideal for early foil take off. In overpowered conditions, the sails may be flatted and the draft pulled forward to maintain complete, stable control whether foiling or slalom sailing. Used for freeride or racing, the RS:Convertible rigs offer complete, user-friendly performance whatever the objective – free-ride bliss or pure blazing speed.
Sail (Available only in 7.8): The RS:X Convertible sail is a high performance three-cam sail based on the RS:RACING design and specifically developed to perform both on Windfoil and Slalom boards. Compared to a pure racing sail, the RS:X Convertible has a higher aspect ratio, shorter boom length, and increased foot size to accommodate vertical rake while foiling.
Mast: The RS:X Convertible mast is composed of 95% prepreg carbon fiber, measures 460cm, and comes in at a total weight of just 4 pounds. Made with an increased wall thickness, the mast features a reinforced column which prevents ovalization during compression, eliminating the main reason of mast breakages.
Boom: The RS:X Convertible boom measures 180 – 230cm and features a 100% Monocoque carbon body and tail, and a universal adjustable outhaul kit. The full carbon boom tail provides for an extremely stiff boom connection and a more responsive transmission of the sail’s power.
Extension (34MXT, same used for both RS:X and RS:One Convertible): The RS:Convertible extension features a stainless bottom piece combined with perfectly aligned, angled pulleys and the exclusive MXT mono-button system. The alloy extension offers the ultimate range of trimming options.
