LEADER OF THE PACK.
INSET CLEW Details:
The GTXrace for 2011 sets a new precedence for a 3 cam race sail. Complete with
the unique Gaastra Inset Clew design, this race horse keeps you moving at top speed
all the time. The GTXrace will give the Vapor a run for its money.
“We just keep learning when developing the Vapors and the GTXrace always benefits.
This market sector is getting bigger and bigger and we are confident this design for
2011 will be hard to beat!”
The semi-wide sock technology and 3 cam set up make the GTXrace light and
nimble. It will jump on a plane and get up to speed with lightning quickness. Sizes
7.0 and down have a 7 batten configuration while the 7.5 and up have an 8 batten
configuration. This gives the sail the ideal proportions and gives more life to each size!
“Smokin fast- If I wasn’t racing on the world tour, the GTX would be good enough
for me. I love the weight and feeling of the rig- it is almost good enough for me to
spritz the world champion!”
A perfect slalom racing machine that gives anyone wanting to go fast
the perfect opportunity. Suits recreational racers looking for easier
operation than that of a full bred racing sail.
The Inset Clew shortens the boom, provides effortless
acceleration, and higher performance in disturbed
wind and choppy conditions. The Inset Clew provides
automatic depower control in puffs, by allowing the
battens to twist open behind the boom. Normally, in
a gust the center of effort moves backward and the
draft increases making the sail feel backhanded, and unwieldy.
This invention stabilizes the draft depth and holds
the center of effort forward keeping the power in your hands where it belongs.
Unlike competitors, the Gaastra Inset Clew repositions the boom and center of effort without compromising the outline. This allows the battens above and below the boom to react to the automatic depower this feature provides.
Keeping the area beneath the back of the boom prevents us from needing to put that area somewhere else.
Furthermore, this helps maintain a low and easily controlled center of effort. A protective silica bead around the inside of the opening and a maintenance free mini-batten beneath it guarantee smooth shape and infinite longevity.
