Same concept as 2021 while all sizes got refined
Every single size now on the same performance level…overall smoother package.
Luff curve optimised between batten 3 and 5, less physical
Feels lighter in your hands…more control in high winds (= higher v-max)…improved acceleration
New PWA rules required to reduce the range to 6 sizes
Most work went into the new 5.8 making sure that it covers the same range and performance as the previous 6.2 and 5.5
Draft position refinements… balances out the whole sail
For 2022 the team has worked on optimizing the upper luff curve which again improves the overall performance and makes the sails even less physical. To comply with the new PWA rules most work went into new 5.8 to ensure it covers the same wind range and performance as the previous 6.2 and 5.5.
“THE WARP_FIN 20.22 HAS AN IMPROVED OVERALL PERFORMANCE – OVER ALL SAIL SIZES! I AM STOKED BY ITS ACCELERATION, LIGHT FEELING IN MY HAND AND CONTROL IN HIGH WINDS. WITH THE PERFECT RACING MACHINE FOR EVERY CONDITION, I’M CONFIDENT TO DEFEND THE PWA SLALOM TITLE! ”
Here comes the evolution of the world champion sail that made Pierre Mortefon the reigning PWA Overall racing champion. And with this sail, he will be back in the hunt for the World Cup crown in 2022! The WARP_FIN 20.22 is the least physical yet most competitive slalom sail out there. In racing, maximum acceleration and control over the material are what count when it comes to standing at the top of the podium. So it‘s only logical that all the innovations and improvements of the WARP_FIN 20.22 are aimed precisely at this. Last year’s model marked a complete redesign. The more pronounced High Aspect Ratio design, especially in the larger sizes, with a shortened boom length and a forward-shifted profile, requires less power, is lighter in the hand and offers more control at the upper wind limit. In addition, stiffer tube battens stabilize the shape well into the overpowered range and you can easily convert even monster gusts into a plus in speed. All in all the WARP_FIN is more balanced, less exhausting and even more controllable. The NO COMPROMISE DESIGN also makes it possible that the propulsion does not start abruptly and has to be “muscled down” but builds up much softer than with other power slalom sails! This relieves the pilot, gives power reserves for the entire course and full concentration on the race. Whether you want to be the fastest at your spot or win national or even international races the WARP_FIN 20.22 is your weapon of choice.
+ NO COMPROMISE DESIGN: Guarantees an ideal mix of maximum power and forward pull without loosing stability / wind-range or becoming super physical
+ SIZE SPECIFIC DESIGN: Thanks to three different, size-dependent concepts each sail size is individually matched to the wind strength + XPLY BATTEN POCKET: Eliminates stretch and doesn´t absorb any water (dry weight = wet weight)
+ 7 BATTEN DESIGN: Makes the WARP one of the lightest slalom sails on the market
+ HYPER CAM 2.0: Completely new and technically superior: the camber revolution with adjustable length – for optimised rotation and increased performance + iROCKET 2.0: factory calibrated individual batten tensions using a torque wrench
+ MODERATE CUTAWAY CLEW: Less blow out / hinge-effect for more power and more direct acceleration
+ ON THE COURSE FOR THE COURSE: Developed and tested in real racing conditions on the course against all competitor sails convinced us that the warp can beat anything out there
+ FULLY INTEGRATED PROTECTOR: lightest protector of its kind but still super effective
