Foilsailing is more popular than ever and is developing rapidly. Meanwhile, in addition to classic foilriding, foilstyling as a playful variation with a clear leaning towards freestyle is causing a lot of excitement and unlimited possibilities. Both “playgrounds” have specific requirements that regular fin sails cannot meet.

This is exactly why the completely redesigned F_PACE range consists of two differently designed models, which up to size 5.8 are clearly described as F Pace Style while 6.4 and 7.4 come as F PAce Ride. Both designs have one thing in common: they are spiked with innumerable, foil-specific design features that have a decisive influence on performance and result in extraordinary characteristics in their respective spectrum. Only 4 (STYLE) or 5 (RIDE) battens, a super short boom and a reduced luff curve combine to produce a favourably soft and very light foil sail.

The high aspect outline with reduced top surface corresponds perfectly with the low water resistance of the hydrofoil and the hardly existing lateral forces. With less movement in the top, the rig remains stable over the board, for maximum control yet very reactive. The foot perfectly closes with the deck and allows for extreme angles against the wind, especially on the F Pace Ride with the extended foot batten – yet thanks to the extremely concave outline without any negative influence to the handling! The new, externally added Sleeve Inducers combine the best of both worlds: super fast rigging and the rotation of a no-cam sail combined with the optimized aerodynamics of a cam sail. Together with the tight leech, they allow the F Pace to start flying even with the slightest breeze. Should it really be necessary to pump, the low sail foil tension immediately builds up propulsion and effective acceleration.

Especially on the F Pace Style the extremely short boom, 4 super easy rotating battens and the low weight result in a playful handling that difficult manoeuvres and moves require: a lot of propulsion, minimized swing weight and - if necessary - spontaneous on-off. This makes them also the ideal companion for windier days.
