The Severne Freek 2018 is designed to give maximum lift, stability and easy ducking. Higher aspect ratios improve lift. The 5 batten layout means more stability and wind-range, and by utilising our high-tech materials technology actually weighs less than most 4-batten sails.
A dynamic relationship between luff curve and seam shaping enables the Severne Freek to inflate further and faster for increased power and explosive pop, whilst still going neutral for reliable duckability. The higher skin tension adds stability and extends the wind range.
Dedicated freestylers will rig the Freek with less downhaul with a tighter head for maximum lift, freestyle wave riders may use more downhaul for more control in a wider range of conditions.
The 2018 Severne Freek gives maximum freestyle performance.
All Freestyle and Freestyle Wave
The FREEK is recommended for RDM masts.
A web of fibreglass filament that disburses loads across seams and throughout the body of the sail. By using stronger, lighter fibres and reducing sail patching, we can measurably reduce weight and swing weigh and at the same time, increase strength.
This high abrasion area is made from only 1 panel and does not carry any exposed seams, preventing any potential weak point in this area. As a result, seam creep and seam-related failure have been eliminated.
Durable and lightweight
eM3 is developed to combine the performance of the e-series cloths with maximum durability. The addition of a 90-degree pre preg polyester scrim has provided unique tear resistant characteristics and the off-axis loads are carried through the 22-degree X-ply fibres. The red and new blue adhesive maintain the UV resistance and tear strength, while the reduced film thickness significantly reduces the weight. The use in the upper panels reduces not only the overall sail weight, but also the swing weight, aiding manoeuvrability and control. Used in the BLADE and in the FREEK.
Boom height gauge for ease of reference.
In our quest to create a truly symmetrical sail we have developed the Aero Batten Pocket. Rather than add the batten pocket on one side of the sail, the panels of the sail are overlapped to create a channel for the batten. The tensioner is then loaded from both sides of the sail creating even tension across both sides of the foil.
The result is improved sail symmetry, and reduced weight.
A single panel in the foot area with hidden load patches and zero exposed stitching eliminates seam abrasion and seam creep in this high load area. Maximum durability and minimum weight.
All Severne wave sails have 25mm double stitched window seams. The wider, single colour seam tape ensures maximum tear strength and crash resistance.
Roller tack pulleys are matched to the sails downhaul requirements and aligned for friction free downhauling and threading ease. Rig your sails with the Severne Hardware Division extensions for function and simplicity.
Protects your board from impact and neatly covers the foot detailing. It incorporates the rope stash pocket for easy storage of your downhaul rope.
High load laminate
Based on the proven eM3 platform, the high load eM4 material features twice the amount of X-Ply fibre and increased film thickness to maximise durability. This new material allows weight reduction whilst maintaining puncture resistance and tear strength. Used in the lower impact zone in the sail.
