// SUPERIOR CONTROL IN ALL CONDITIONS
The 2022 Icon performance is defined by its ease of handling utilizing a powerful and direct riding feel. The five batten panel layout gives you complete command in all situations and the confidence to push hard. With five battens to keep the sail draft in forward locked position, the sail works equally well for high-wind jumping environments to powering driving turns in challenging onshore conditions and all wind angles in between. Adaptability is Icon’s signature trait and a big reason it is been so popular for well over a decade. The Icon also provides the ultimate level of stability in any wind range. This superb stability also means that the Icon is less physically demanding for the rider to use compared to the Blacktip, providing the rider with an absolute focus on maneuvers and going really fast with full control at all times.
Technical solutions in 2022 include a refined luff curve design, with a lower aspect ratio compared to 2021. The batten above the boom has been moved up to create more drive, as seen on the Blacktip. Combined, these refinements offer the control of a 5 batten sail, but with the drive of a 4 batten wave sail. A compact outline and medium to low aspect ratio provide a powerful front-end drive to generate speed in turns and high-end control in high-wind jumps.
Versatility is the name of the game for the avid windsurfer who wants to make the most out of any wave sailing conditions. The new Icon is the result of more than 40 years of design evolution. It’s designed for ease of use and high-end performance in all conditions, from side to onshore. The Icon’s iconic performance allows you progress in any environment.
