KA.Race 2022

KA.Race 2022

Our vision for the flagship sail of the KA Sail performance range was quite simple: create a sail that allows any serious racer to reach his or her full potential!

KA.RACE, OUR FLAGSHIP SAIL

In order to achieve our vision of allowing any serious racer to reach his or her full potential, we are constantly developing, testing, tuning and refining these sails. They are under continuous development and close examination every time we do a new production build. 

2022 SET-UP ... BLISTERING SPEED, ACCELERATION AND LIGHTWEIGHT ERGONOMICS

We remain true to our mission statement to stay leaders in innovation and produce very high quality products with a high performance level. The KA.RACE remains our full-blooded professional race sail, created solely to win, and the KA.RACE 2022 continues to be a 7 carbon/composite batten/4 camber sail.

The most notable change for 2022 is that we have decided to add the former 4-camber KA.SPEED sizes (4.7 - 5.2 - 5.7) to the KA.RACE range. Main reason for this is that we noticed that the difference in performance between KA.RACE and KA.SPEED was only very slight. For the sake of transparency in our ranges, KONCEPT will remain our 3-camber Freerace sail, KA.RACE our 4-camber Race sail and the KA.SPEED 5.7 will replace the KA.RACE 5.6 this year.

The smaller sizes KA.RACE will be speed-oriented for 2022, optimised for downwind speed runs with acceleration and top speed exceeding that of a full-blooded race sail, with a refined twist optimisation.

Sizes 6.3 and up have been tuned for Slalom racing, with more shape added in panels 5, 6 and 7 to increase accelleration. This improved panel lay-out and extra shaping with a more powerful lower foil provide huge drive and acceleration while the slippery upper profile minimises drag, delivering limitless top end speed in the KA.RACE series, with new graphics to top it off.

UNBELIEVABLE DRAFT STABILITY AND A SOFT, LIGHT FEEL

The relatively high foil tension of the KA.RACE is teamed up with the carbon/composite battens and 4 cambers producing draft stability levels that should really be experienced to be believed! The sail has a light and soft feel with a bit less pull from up high which makes the sail easier to lock down especially in rougher water. Reduced overall weight of the sail without sacrificing the incredible stability whilst keeping the emphasis on acceleration and top speed!

HI-TECH MATERIALS AND REDUCTION OF SWING WEIGHT

Hi-tech materials in the upper luff sleeve area of the KA.RACE have impacted the mast bend and leech twist for a light feel, enhanced acceleration, speed and stability. Notable feature is the hi-tech 2mil tri-axial laminate in the leech and mast sleeve, reducing the sail’s overall weight and assisting control by reducing the swing weight. This gives the KA.RACE a soft ergonomic feel, which is especially noticeably in rough conditions.

RDM VS SDM CAMBERS

Sizes 4.7, 5.2 and 5.7 come standard with RDM cambers, but are SDM compatible. Sizes 6.3 and up are supplied with SDM cams, but are RDM compatible. SDM and RDM camber replacement sets are available separately by request.
