The aggressive EGO is a completely new breed of Wave sail, that can and does deliver more than regular Wave sails. Look into for a sail that’s truly ahead of its time. The EGO is the ultimate Wave sail for innovative riders! The EGO marks a new era of Concept Wave sails, that we intend to develop consistently in the coming years, with a radical approach.
For us, the EGO represents a symbol of innovation, built with exceptional materials to incorporate the latest trends in sail design. Yet despite our passion for innovation, we are true to our motto, innovation follows function“. With this in mind, Kai Hopf developed the BALANCED.LUFF.LENGTH, a precisely balanced ratio of luff length to boom length. As short and compact as possible for radical handling and as long as necessary for a decent twist, and ensuring maximum wind range. In order to achieve sensible sizes, Kai uses the proven NORTH SAILS CROSS.BATTEN.CONCEPT in combination with the CUTAWAY.CLEW, that’s reaped real benefits in handling. When it comes to the number of battens, Kai is fairly conservative, since good high-end control and a wide wind-range still demand 5 battens.
IMPORTANT: the EGO is North's first sail exclusively designed for RDM masts due to its special elastic characteristics. The smaller mast diameter perfectly matches this softer feeling sail and shorter luff.
