2022 Icon Legacy

// 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

The Icon Legacy features a bulletproof all laminated scrim panel layout with 4 MIL wide-spaced X-Ply in the transparent paneling. Icon Legacy redefines what a sail can do and where it can go, where will it take you?

1 // The Legacy Construction
Our DNA of the Simmer Style quality is materialized in the Legacy construction. The Icon Legacy is built to withstand harsh conditions. The main body paneling features 4 MIL wide spaced X-Ply scrim, this provides both great visibility and extra durability. All the same performance as the monofilm version of the Icon.


2 // 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.

3 //  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.


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 // 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. 

6 // 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.


// 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.
