SUPER HERO / SUPER HERO HD

The consistent evolution of the legendary HERO makes the SUPER HERO the ultimate World Cup wave sail with an extremely wide range of use. On the one hand, it captivates with a manageable top performance, even in nuking spots such as the Canaries or South Africa, remaining perfectly controllable even in fully overpowered jumping conditions. On the other hand, it offers powerful acceleration at the lower wind limit, as you need for down the line riding on Maui or Mauritius. Designer Kai Hopf has moved up the batten above the boom increasing the gap to the foot batten similar to a 3 batten sail. This FREE.BOOMZONE.CONCEPT provides an incredible on-off on the wave. The batten-free area is super easy to pump and offers less resistance for the wind to fill out the profile in the wind in the underpowered conditions, similar to a 3 batten sail. However, in order to ensure high stability in strong winds and uniform a performance, Kai uses two MINI.BATTEN and the HOLLOW.LOWER.LEECH directly above the boom. In addition, RADIAL.LOAD.STRIPES starting from the clew stabilize in particular the boom-free area and ensure an even load-distribution. The result is a 4 batten wave sail with incomparable wide wind range which combines maximum low end power with control and stability.

The low weight makes for incredible handling, while rigging you can already imagine how light and soft the sail feels. The rotation is as smooth as silk, even with minimal outhaul tension. The top of the sail works very effectively to support the power, therefore you can safely choose a sail size smaller than with many other wave sails. This applies to almost any rider, regardless of their weight.

Sail sizes range from 3.0 up to 6.7 to cover a maximum range of use. To ensure maximum draft stability the 3 largest sizes feature a 5-batten layout.

SUPERHERO HD

Basically identical, the SUPER HERO HD comes without monofilm even in the window panel.

KEY FEATURES:

  • LEECH (scooped leech outline) with additional MINI.BATTEN: stabilizes the profile right above the boom and prevents leech flattering.
  • Additional LOAD.STRIPES improve the stability and extend the wind range.
  • iBUMPER: The most advanced and effective molded mast protector
  • LUFF.LENGTH: Luff as short as possible for radical handling and as long as necessary for maximum wind range
  • Extremely sturdy, unbreakable epoxy battens
  • Also available in a monofilm-free HD construction

IDOL LTD

Character

Light, lighter and as radical as possible! The IDOL LTD is the personal pro model of freestyle record world champion Gollito Estredo. For this freestyle genius Kai Hopf has fulfilled all his wishes and created the most sophisticated, extreme freestyle production sail that we have ever built. All IDOL LTD’s are unbelievably light sails because instead of conventional X.PLY the futuristic high-tech laminate "ODL" is being used in combination with our 4mil ULTRA.FILM. These materials are 50% lighter than conventional sail cloth and push the weight sensationally low. To clarify: The weight of IDOL LTD corresponds to a 1.5m smaller HERO / VOLT (e.g. 4.8 compares to 3.4)!

 KEY FEATURES:

  • NEW: HOLLOW.LEECH (scooped leech outline) with additional MINI.BATTEN: stabilizes the profile right above the boom and prevents leech flattering.
  • Additional LOAD.STRIPES improve the stability and extend the wind range.
  • 2 designed around the RDM 430 and 400 mast
  • Our lightest Freestyle sail of all time thanks to trend-setting high-tech yachting materials (ODL laminate, 4mil ULTRA.FILM)
  • Super high clew and short boom allow fastest possible ducking to avoid loosing any speed.
  • iROCKET 2.0, NorthSails lightest batten tensioner of all time
  • Exclusively designed for RDM masts.

Details

From the second you ride the IDOL LTD you will have a smile on your face. It feels absolutely neutral, doesn’t show any unwanted life of its own and is a feather in your hands so that you nearly forget about the sail during moves and maneuvers. This is one of the most important aspects especially for freestyle! It spins incredibly fast through all tricks even during the most difficult ducking moves and feels as if you rotate without a sail.

The high clew and the short boom length excel at ducking so that no speed is lost. With the new IDOL LTD the success rate of difficult maneuvers and the fun increases straight away making you automatically go for even more radical moves!

Another important point:

Even if other brands do not speak about it, we tell the truth: ultra lightweight can only be achieved through the reduction of material thickness. Since the film thickness of the ODL laminate is reduced to the absolute minimum, the UV stability is limited. Therefore, this sail is excluded from the usual NorthSails 2+3.year.warranty
