Hansen FreeRace HCL 7.1

Jun 17, 2009

Luff: 468 Boom: 214
The FreeRace is a tight luff sleeve version of Hansen’s racier Slalom line. It incorporates the Hansen Control Leech (HCL), which are neoprene wedges in the sail’s trailing edge that give it another way to twist for better efficiency when needed. In a gust all you feel is the board accelerate letting you know that the HCL is working. The Freerace 7.1 has an efficient and slippery profile and proved to be the fastest sail in the test. The flatter profile does sacrifice some power though, and is therefore best matched with more efficient riders. It rigs on either a 460 or 430 mast (SDM or RDM), and we found using a 430 RDM seems to allow the cams to rotate a little easier. There is obvious attention to detail with sail care features that include a great boom height guide and a completely removable mast pad. hansensails.com
