FREE-RIDING, FOILING AND FUN
The E_Pace is exactly the kind of athletic free-ride sail that makes windsurfing so fascinating and uncomplicated. It’s easy to rig, accelerates like an e-motor, and planes without pumping. The E_Pace embodies pure windsurfing: lots of thrust, speed AND simplicity.
Versatility is the E_PACE’s greatest strength, thanks to the 3 in 1 design with a greatly reduced luff curve, which is almost straight in the upper area. The downhaul tension dictates the character of the sail, depending on the trim setting. The MIN and MAX trim points offer the opportunity to cover an incredibly wide wind range. On MIN setting the E_Pace accelerates powerfully from the slightest wind pressure, and is ideal for foiling. On MAX trim, however, it offers endless speed and control even when overpowered thanks to its pronounced loose leech. When used for foiling the E_PACE features a special clew eyelet to be able to position the sail even more upright!

E PACE MIN AND MAX DOWNHAUL SETTINGS
MINIMUM DOWNHAUL SETTING
LEADS TO – – TIGHT LEECH (= REDUCED SAIL TWIST) – REDUCED SAIL AND MAST PRE-TENSION (= INCREASED MAST TWIST) – DRAFT SLIGHTLY FURTHER BACK
ON THE WATER – – MAXIMUM LOW END POWER/PULL – EASIER AND MORE EFFICIENT TO PUMP – SOFTER AND MORE COMFORTABLE TO SAIL IN LOW END CONDITIONS – TIGHT LEECH IDEAL FOR FOIL USAGE (ESPECIALLY IN COMBINATION WITH THE ADDITIONAL LOWER CLEW FOIL EYELET)
MAXIMUM DOWNHAUL SETTING
LEADS TO – – PRONOUNCED LOOSE LEECH (= INCREASED SAIL TWIST) – HIGH SAIL- AND MAST PRE-TENSION (= REDUCED MAST TWIST) – DRAFT SLIGHTLY FURTHER FORWARD
ON THE WATER – – MAXIMUM HIGH-END-CONTROL / V-MAX – MORE FORWARD AND DIRECT PULL FOR EXPLOSIVE ACCELERATION WHEN POWERED UP
