[preview] North Sails RAM F11

For all North Sails speeders something sweet, the newest RAM F11. Makes me remind back in the day how fast teamriders went with the older RAM F8 in the (speed)worldcup.

The latest RAM F11 is like the tough little brother of the World Cup WARP F2010! Even
stronger, and with a special and user-friendly character it matches around 90%
performance of the fastest WARP we’ve ever built. During its further development for
2010 two aspects were paramount: Improved handling and performance optimization
through the entire range of use.


7 battens, a narrower mast sleeve and the reduced weight make the RAM F11 far less physical to handle than
the WARP F2010. The brand-new INDEPENDENT.SHAPING.CONCEPT supports this concept decisively.
Instead of just using one kind of shaping for the complete sail (sail body and mast sleeve), for the first time Kai’s
worked with 2 separate 3-D profiles for the sail body and mast sleeve. The wind range has improved drastically
by an impressive 25%.


Additionally the all-new TWIN.TRIM.CLEW lends further positive range of use. The secret of the
TWIN.TRIM.CLEW lies with horizontally placed clew eyelets. The outer clew position provides more power and
direct feeling, while the inner position lends superior control and a softer sensation.


The TT.TOP, super stiff BOX.BATTEN and the wide and conical AERO.SLEEVE mast sleeve design features,
lead the new RAM F11 to breathtaking top end speeds for both GPS and competition pilots. A missile of this
caliber has never been so easy to use and is the secret to it’s success.
