The Turbo GT utilises cams to enhance foil stability and induce pre-set profile for power and drive through gusts and lulls.
All cams are positioned below the boom to lock the power zone very low in the sail where it can most easily be controlled. Swing weight is also improved by lowering all the hardware and allowing the upper sections to flex and exhaust freely.
The Turbo GT can be run on either RDM or SDM masts. Incredible rotation is the advantage on the RDM mast, and increased stability is the benefit of an SDM mast. Both options will deliver blazing speed, early planing and an ultralight feel.
Improvements for 2018 include changes to the tack geometry to make rigging and derigging even easier.
SDM Mast APEX PRO – For ultimate performance APEX – High end performance with increased reliability
RDM MAST (WITH RDM CAMS) RDM BLUE – High end performance with increased reliability.
Boom ENIGMA – For the ultimate performance BLUELINE – For uncomplicated reliable performance
Seamless Head Panel
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.
SpiderFibre on the leech of the sail massively increases the perimeter strength and inhibits vertical stretch between the sail panels.
Boom Height Reference
Boom height gauge for ease of reference.
Internal Printed X-Ply
Printing the films prior to lamination with the x-ply gives us the flexibility to use multi-coloured, custom graphics. The print is of minimal thickness, reducing weight and producing a higher definition of colour. During lamination the printed side is placed on the inside of the film so there is no need to worry about wear. Your sails will forever remain looking bright and fresh.
Seamless foot construction
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.
The Dropped Clew allows for the reduction of boom and luff lengths; reducing the swing weight, increasing stability and promoting manoeuvrability.
3&4 roller tack pulley
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.
Molded Soft Edge
With recessed grooving, covering any vulnerable stitching the moulded soft edge encloses the hard edge long the foot of the sail and protects the stitching from wear along the board non-skid.
Thermoformed Tack Fairing
Protects your board from impact and neatly covers the foot detailing. It incorporates the rope stash pocket for easy storage of your downhaul rope.
* Recommended mast lengths are dependent on rider weight: lighter riders may prefer a shorter/softer mast, while heavier riders may prefer a longer/stiffer mast.
