Used Condition 3/5 ( small hole in and in luff tube – see pictures)
In the 40-year history of the Simmer Style brand, the Blacktip has become our best-selling sail model of all times. This success is primarily due to its superb versatility to deliver high performance in any wave sailing conditions, from side-offshore winds at Hookipa or the perfect peeling waves at Ponta Preta; to nuking onshore winds in Pozo. Our talented team has tested and tortured our 2021 prototypes in all imaginable conditions. The design team has re-thought, re-designed, and refined down to the smallest details in every sail size; creating a sail that long respected designer Tomas Persson claims to be the most refined sail design in his career.
The -21 Blacktip presents ultra-light, direct handling combined with a generous wind range, a.k.a the ultimate performance sail for the avid wave sailor. Its progressive four-batten layout in all sizes provides fingertip control and drive to maneuver in the critical sections of the wave. The large monofilm window gives you superb visibility when lining up your turn. The Blacktip is also available in an extra durable full X-Ply version, the Blacktip Legacy. The new panel layout featuring light-weight Q-Ply in the luff panel, combined with a vertical kevlar load line from top to tack helps to control the profile, preserving the longevity of the materials while providing a light-weight sail that will stay intact for many seasons to come.
The design features include a lowered center of effort and a more forward-focused shape, combined with an improved luff curve in the upper quarter of the sail, that allows for a lower point of the initiation of the twist. A compact outline and medium-to-low aspect ratio provide a powerful front-end drive to generate speed in turns, with superb control in high-wind jumps. The 2021 Blacktip presents a cutting-edge of sail design for the radical wave sailor looking for a sail to push their wavesailing to the next level.
The Blacktip is available in a all X-Ply version, the Blacktip Legacy. Simmer Style’s heritage is found in providing high-end performance coupled with hardcore durability. Blacktip Legacy enters the arena prepared to slay wave after wave and stay hungry for another, no matter what the consequences maybe, even if you are in an environment with sharp features and obstacles. With all X-Ply construction and PVC main paneling, Blacktip Legacy also possesses the precise handling and fingertip reaction that the Blacktip is famous for, being of the very same profile. This is the best choice for any rider who wants a bulletproof sail that allows you to go for it, knowing your gear can handle it. The ever durable Blacktip Legacy is your shield of invincibility.
