The performance of the Blacktip suits the rider who wants to maximize every opportunity as you need to do during a heat. With a higher aspect ratio and increased distance between the battens, the new sail feels more reactive than ever, combined with some additional backhand throttle, allowing you to load up and release instantly. One of the many signature features of the Blacktip is its massive wind range, keeping the profile locked in through heavy gusts. The Blacktip requires a more committed sailing style than the all-new Evoq, but it will allow you to push your manoeuvers bigger than before and provide that extra boost to go further, faster, and higher.
The 2024 Blacktip features the new Q2-Ply in the foot and clew panel, 20% lighter than X-Ply with the same strength. The simplicist panel layout is designed without any load crossing seams for optimal distribution of forces. The Q-Ply luff panel creates a smooth power delivery, combined with the vertical kevlar load line that controls the central effort and increases performance longevity.
