Sailworks Retro 7.5

Jun 17, 2009

Luff: 495 Boom: 206-211

More so than any other sail tested today, or over the past 10 years, the Retro has come to define the term freeride. If you want a sail with nearly as much horsepower as a power cam sail then simple bag-out the Retro with minimal downhaul. If you want to race your buddies on a narrow-tailed slalom board, just add some downhaul and watch them eat your wake. It takes some knowledge of tuning to make all this happen; attention to detail can be required when rigging. For all this straight-line wonder the Retro does sacrifice a little in transitions as the rotation is more noticeable and the rig is slightly heavier than with other RAF sails during transitions. But, it still feels lighter and rotates easier than any cam sail. sailworks.com
