Introducing the Avanti Sails Icarus 2022.
The Avanti Sails Icarus probably offers the best compromise between performance and handling when foiling among all existing freefoil sails. It exceeded all expectations in the British magazine "Windsurf UK" and was immediately crowned the test winner.
Thanks to the high-aspect profile and the minimal loose leech, the planing properties are so good that even heavier riders can start foiling from 8-9 knots. Appropriate pumping technology is of course still necessary. The reduced number of sail battens and the minimally sized mast pocket also make the sail appear extremely light and make it easy to ride.
From 10-11 knots nothing stands in the way of a relaxed foiling experience and the Icarus shows what it can do. Namely to ensure an absolutely relaxed and uninhibited experience above the water.
Sailing characteristics of the Icarus:
Closed high-aspect profile provides power in low wind.
Perfect handling in the low to medium wind range.
Very stable pressure point that causes horizontal pull (especially for foiling).
Butter smooth rotation of the profile in the jibe (rotates completely by itself).
In the upper wind range, smaller sizes of the Icarus are recommended.
New on all 2021/22 Avanti sails: the Avanti Quick Lock System.
This system enables faster rigging and de-rigging of the sail, thanks to a click mechanism that connects the line at the end of the boom directly to the sail. No more annoying knots - one click and GO!
The cheaper classic monofilm version does without the very soft riding experience, but is still an absolute performance guarantee. Particularly UV-resistant and high-quality materials were used for this cheaper construction in order to come as close as possible to the performance and durability of the membrane version.
