Gaastra introduce the new Pure – ‘The Freestyle Magician’ – to their 2012 line-up: Our Freestyle team demands the best freestyle sail on the market – once again the goal has been achieved! The Pure replaces the ever-popular contest winning Echo LE and keeps you on the podium!

R&D

The team guys love these sails. They are super light, accelerate quickly and do what they are told. These days power moves have to flow smoothly and you need perfect balance coming from the rig.

The Pure has it all…

TECHNICAL DETAILS

Ultimate lightweight construction has X ply panels radiating out of the tack and clew to provide a solid infrastructure making this range tough. The monofilm construction has different thicknesses to provide light weight performance with durability. The high clew design combined with the higher aspect ratio makes this sail easy to manoeuvre in all conditions.

A shorter boom and flatter profile with a tight leech give easy, instant acceleration!

A new size range is tightly spaced for any condition and rider size. The proven 4 batten skeleton is used from 4.0 to 5.4 and then the 5.6 and 6.0 are 5 battens to balance out the extra luff length.

All sizes are fixed tops and are mast specific!

Steven van Broekhoven says:

“I like everything about this sail! Everybody knows that the Echo LE was and is still the best freestyle sail on earth- we have had an advantage with these sails for a while now. A 4 batten freestyle specialist sail from 4.0 and up… A dream come true!

“New sail designer Peter Munzlinger has jumped up a new level creating the Pure with improvements on the Echo LEs…

“The sail is unbelievable! It gives me power when I want it and allows me to turn it off when I don’t need it! It’s super-light and ducks perfectly when overpowered. I can do no wrong with this sail! New moves, no problem. Contest performance, deadly!”

BOTTOM LINE

If you want a no compromise freestyle sail that is light and nimble, get the Pure… It will blow you away!

    it looks like the 2011 vandal enemy.

    I think it is rather cool with the skulls and all, but although Vandal is Gaastra I would rather have the new enemy than the pure, because Vandal changes his designs less.
