The new 2011 series of racing sails introduced by Simmer Style is about to revolutionize the world of windsurfing. These new sail models offer incredible speed and top control. The Simmer Style 2XC is a powerful, yet fun to ride freerace sail, perfectly suited for entry level slalom enthusiasts or drag racing. The sail combines pro racing performance with forgiving freeride maneuverability to offer a very smooth, fast and exciting drive. The race oriented profile generates plenty of low end power for early planning and creates a smooth and fluid glide across the water.

The increased leading edge curvature improves the aerodynamic performance of the Simmer Style 2XC and allows the rider to cut thorough the wind at impressive top speed. A simple and efficient two mini cam system defines a full draft profile and creates a locked center of effort. This feature allows the rider to experience a higher top speed without worrying about control and improves rotation and handling. The sail is kept stable at high speeds or in high winds by a solid six battens system. An additional Kevlar Stretch Control Tendon maximizes the draft stability. A new luff curve allows the rider to use a less responsive mast to assure better control during technical maneuvers.

The upper part of the 2XC is lighter and assures improved sail flexibility. This way the sail is able to adjust itself to various wind conditions. The sail is crafted using top quality X-Ply, Q-Ply and Monofilm fabrics, plus additional Kevlar and Dacron reinforcements. This structure makes it incredible light and durable. The Simmer Style 2XC provides plenty of power and a high top speed. It is perfect for advanced riders who are ready to experience a new thrill.

The sail is well built. Very robust and solid. It has a low aspect, and the longer boom produces good power for early planning. The sail works really nice with less downhaul than other sails in its class. A little outhaul improves cam rotaton. On wat...more
