Description

The Neil Pryde V8 Flight Windsurf Sail is our dedicated foil free-race sail. Combining the ultimate foiling technology of our Flight EVO range with the ease of use of the V8, V8 Flight is the ultimate high performance free-race foil sail. Super-fast and stable, 4 sizes from 5m to 8m will give you the ability to outfly your friends in anything from 6-25 knots. A favourite sail in personal quivers and windsurf centres across the world.

Specification:
• Luff: 462cm
• Boom: 177cm
• Ideal Mast: 430 RDM / SDM
• Weight of Sail: 4.25kg

Features:
• Integra Cams – New Integra-cam RDM specific sizes now allow for direct conversion between RDM and SDM mast; RDM cams feature extended body length to compensate the less sleeve space taken by RDM mast and keep all the cam pressure correct despite the smaller mast diameter.
• Airflow Batten Layout – Angled batten design for streamlined airflow.
• Visual Trimming System – Downhaul tension guide. Max. and Min. Recommended leech release points. Located on the upper leech between battens #2 and #3.
• Dual Boom Length Compact Clew – Has been slightly improved and redesigned to avoid contact of sail edge body with the boom. Outer and inner clew position straight alignment. Retains same clew height and boom to mast rake on both clew positions, reduces weight and prevents rear part of the foot touching the water when jibing.
• Loopsters – Allowing easy rigging through loop to loop system and optimized adjustable outhaul function that reduces the friction and eliminates any crossing lines (crucial when using adjustable outhaul system).
• Batcams – Batten tensioner system allowing precise tuning and secured positive locking without the need for tools.
• Kevlar Batten Bridges – To distribute the high downhaul load crossing the battens.
• Aerodynamic Boom Cutout Closure – Prevents the apparent wind from blowing into the mast sleeve and generating drag.
• Batten Chafe Protection – Abrasion resistant PU print to help protect the battens from damage caused by rigging or boom contact.

Foiling requires a very precise technique as it is crucial that the position of the draft stays unchanged to keep the flight stable and uninterrupted.

The very high aspect ratio design of the sail adds efficiency, while keeping profile stability and this way dramatically improves the foiling experience. This specific design makes the sail’s luff longer, therefore allowing for the boom to be shorter, which translates to more control.

HIGHER EFFICIENCY
Lift is created by the leading edge. On a high aspect sail, the leading edge is much longer relative to the sail size and this extra lift creates a more efficient sail for the rider. One of the major drag components is the tip vortex. On a high aspect ratio sail this is relatively less compared to the overall sail size, hence the effect is minimized.

V8 Flight is rigged with tighter leech compared to conventional V8 freerace sail and provides exceptional performance in light wind; 8.0 on the foil will easily out-plane (or out-fly) any super large free ride sails while it will remain stable and fast even once the wind picks up.
