Man has dreamed of flight for eons
Avanti is proud to offer a product painstakingly developed to bring you ever closer to the limitless realm of our feathered friends. We know riding a foil is special. Some compare the feeling to floating in bottomless powder. Others marvel at the efficiency of slicing smoothly above a turbulent sea. After years of development, and backed by a deep history in foil-bourne craft, Avanti is proud to finally release ICARUS… and it’s EPIC.
Building on the overwhelming success of the standard model, for 2023, Avanti is offering the Icarus ME for the discerning customer. With an Aramid membrane body, the ME version shines as the uncompromising best sail on the market for free-foiling. The ultra low-stretch model yields a larger sailing range, and easier softer handling as a result of it’s superior construction. Arguably the most advanced sail in our lineup, you don’t need to be a pro to reap the benefits for everyday use.
The Icarus focuses on the concept of using a minimal sail size for maximum delivery. The foiling revolution has us sailing in lighter winds than ever before, and through design, we can now do this with smaller sail sizes than ever imagined. The Icarus features a relatively narrow mid-width sock, and a skeleton lightly balanced on Avanti Arc Cambers for super easy rotation. True shaping carries a solid 3/4 of the way up the plan form. The the tighter twist flow and short boom length work in harmony to deliver unmatched drive per square meter, without excessive back-hand pressure.
