2022 Blacktip Legacy

// PRO WAVE PERFORMANCE WITH DRIVE TO MANOEUVRE

The 22/23 Blacktip presents absolute high-end performance for the advanced to pro, wave sailors looking for a sail to push their limits in any conditions. The Blacktip is the solution for any rider looking for a sail with a light feel, direct power delivery, and a wide wind range. This combined with extra back-hand throttle to create drive to manoeuvre in the critical sections of the wave, is what makes the Blacktip first choice for pro riders such as Alessio Stillrich and Ben Proffitt.

The 22/23 Blacktip presents a refined luff curve design, with a slightly lower aspect ratio compared to 2021. These improvements promote a lowered center of effort and a more forward-focused profile. These features combined enable a crisp and reactive feel to the sail. Load up and release at any instance. The Blacktip’s main technical features include; a progressive four batten layout in all sizes. Precision tapered battens on the lower two battens to keep the draft forward and locked in. A Q-Ply luff panel for a smooth transition of power, combined with a vertical kevlar load line that maintains the skin tension from top to tack, preserving the longevity of the materials while providing a light-weight sail that will stay intact for many seasons to come.

The Blacktip Legacy delivers the highest level of durability with the PVC window paired with all X-Ply scrim in the lower sail body.  Besides its added durability benefits, the PVC window creates a smoother power delivery compared to the monofilm version, which has a more direct feel.

The 22/23 Blacktip presents the cutting edge of sail design for the hardcore wave slayer looking for a manoeuvre-oriented wave sail to push their wavesailing to the next level!

// The Legacy Construction
Our DNA of the Simmer Style quality is materialized in the Blacktip Legacy. It is built to withstand the most punishing conditions on the planet. The softer character of the PVC window gives the Legacy sail a more forgiving feel compared to the monofilm version of Blacktip. So as well as superb durability, the BT Legacy offers a smooth and comfortable ride, especially in high-wind conditions. 

  1. A third Kevlar Stretch Control tendon for added durability and to minimize the stretch in the PVC window.
  2. Durable and light-weight 4 MIL wide-spaced X-Ply scrim. 
  3. PVC window, highly durable with crystal clear view.


2 //  Vertical Kevlar Load Line

Kevlar load line from top to tack to control the central effort; increase the longevity of the material which ensures that the sail profile stays in position when strong gusts hit the sail.

3 // Q-Ply Luff Panel
The 2 MIL Q-Ply luff panel creates a softer and more forward-focused power delivery. This is combined with the strength provided by the vertical load line for maintained profile stability and durability.



4 //  Kevlar Stretch Control Tendons
The Kevlar Stretch Control Tendons distribute the load throughout the surface of the sail from clew to luff. They control the breaking point for the twist, increase the wind range, and increase the longevity of the sail. An original Simmer Style feature that has been widely adopted by many other sail brands.


5 // Finger Patch Tendons
The Finger Patch Tendons in clew create greater load distribution over a larger area of the sailcloth surface, which increases the durability, as well as the direct handling of the sail.

6 // Stainless Steel O-Ring
The Stainless Steel O-Ring provides the strongest possible connection between the boom outhaul and the sail, providing direct power delivery and sail. Simmer quality defined. 


// 5 MIL X-PLY

The most durable laminate scrim on the market. 100% polyester film, 150 microns thick, with high stretch resilience thread reinforcement in an X-pattern. The layers of film are bonded together with a UV resistance glue. The Icon features X-Ply paneling in the foot panel and clew area to handle wave sailing abuse in harsh conditions.

Made in USA.

// 2 MIL Q-PLY
Q-Ply is a colored scrim which is mainly used in the top half of the sail. The Q-Ply combines a square thread pattern with an X-pattern. This overlapping thread pattern allows us to use a much thinner polyester film, at only 50 Microns thick. Q-Ply offers super strong durability combined with lightweight performance. As it has a more flexible characteristic than X-Ply, it makes the sail feel more alive in the area where the sail is designed to move and twist.

Made in USA.
