CHARGE

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. The Charge features a 'drop-clew' design which allows for shorter boom lengths and improved handling. Aerotech was the first to offer a 100% grid sail and the Charge continues that tradition. Lots of color gives this sail a real “look at me” appeal. It is 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 Charge was the first sail to feature our new Teck Strap II system. The strap threads directly into the downhaul pulley for extra tension and less need to re-tension. No more wrapping the tack strap around the extension only to have it slip during your session!

The 5.5 and down are 4 battens. This reduces weight and gives a softer feel for improved down the line wave sailing. The 5.8 and 6.2 sizes have and upper panel made of UDL04 / Technora. This lightens the weight in these larger sizes.
