2020 Naish Lift Freerace Sail
Who is it for?
The LIFT Freerace is for dedicated windsurf foilers looking for next level performance without the hassle of a big race sail.
What’s it do?
This sail delivers early take-off with improved speed and control for high performance foiling.
Why is it unique?
The LIFT Freerace is a lightweight cam sail specifically optimized for fast foiling, with an emphasis on reaching.
This all-new 2-cam foil sail combines light weight, easy handling and easy rigging with freerace performance.
It’s ALL new, baby!
The LIFT Freerace is an entirely new category of sail design that combines a defined forward camber with low internal tension. Unlike ‘race’ foil sails which focus exclusively on upwind/downwind, the LIFT Freerace adds great reaching performance to the mix, making it far more versatile. This concept borrows heavily from wing sails. The camber induced leading edge maintains an efficient low drag shape—even at low angles of attack (sheeted out)—while the reactive leech easily bleeds off excess power at speed for maximum control. The sail has plenty of power for early and easy launch onto the foils. Once in the air, it’s fast, efficient and easy to control. The large foot profile allows the gap to be closed, even in the more vertical foil stance, while the medium-width sleeve and hi-tech materials make it lightweight and easy-to-handle.
