CHARGE 2009

Concept: Side Shore Wave

The Charge is Aerotech's down-the-line wave sail. This model has the ability to hold good power when needed but remains neutral for transitions or wave riding. For 2009 it was even more tuneable and the twist is positioned a bit further down at maximum downhaul. this gives the Charge a softer feel but keeps the power and improves stability and high wind control. Aerotech was the first to offer a 100% grid sail and the Charge continues that tradition for 2009. Lots of color gives this sail a real “look at me” appeal. It was one of the most durable wave sails ever produced using triple throw stitch seam construction.

Other features include; an anti-chafe bumper in the head, new raised stainless steel 6-1 pulley with oversized rollers, thermo-formed base pad and interactive rigging guide. All battens are rods.

The UDL04 Technora limited edition version features the ultra light, ultra strong UDLO4 material. This cloth is substantially lighter and allows the sail to be 10% to 15% lighter than standard models. Designed for those who deserve the best.
