Devastating multi-cam weapon
For speed and slalom, with four cams and seven or eight battens, the X-15 has a solid locked in power profile in the base, which combines with a reactive upper leech to deliver stunning performance.
Larger sizes are compact in feel and principally designed for slalom racing across a broad range of wind and sea conditions where foil stability and even twist for perfect control at very high speeds.
Smaller sizes have a dual role, adjusted by simply changing the mast bend profile. Optimise for slalom or speed by choosing the appropriate mast:
The speed community really is buzzing again with fantastic achievements across the globe, accessible to all thanks to GPS Speedsurfing. It’s not all about world records, just try and push your PB, or maybe grab an X-15 and aim for the top of the Tushingham rankings!
"Even sailing completely maxed I can forget about the rig and focus on controlling the board"
With correct tuning the X-15 offers blistering speed. To extract ultimate performance here are some tuning tips.
SAILING IN FULLY POWERED WINDS - Downhaul the sail so the leech is loose down to the 4th batten. An extra 1cm or so on the outhaul is necessary as well.
The small plastic pieces supplied with your sail are to fine tune the amount of pressure on the mast from each camber inducer. Too little pressure and the foil is not locked in to the mast and the sail loses efficiency. Too much pressure and the cams will be difficult to rotate, with the added risk of breaking the batten or even mast!
