KAMIKAZE 2020 … NEW SCHOOL COOL IN A NEW FORM!
2020 is an important year for KA Sail Windsurfing and you can clearly see that reflected in the changes made to the range and line-up for this season. We remain true to our mission statement to stay in the lead in innovation and produce very high quality products with a high performance level. For our KAMIKAZE this means that we have drastically revised the graphic design of this Wave champion for 2020 with tweaks in terms of performance, graphics and sustainability, resulting in a whole new, fresh look for the KAMIKAZE 2020!
DURABLE, LIGHT AND ERGONOMIC
An important change to the KAMIKAZE designs for 2020 is that the clew heights have been lowered again for an even better ergonomic performance. We have also chosen to continue the use of the lighter top and bottom battens as in 2019 for both KAMIKAZE and KILLER, without compromising the stability in the sail.
Refinements have also been made to the foot panel of the red X-Ply construction to further increase the durability of the sail, and a Kevlar panel has been introduced to the leech of the blue sail (the Pro model) for reduced stretch and crisper gust response.
KAMIKAZE has a more compact profile compared to the KILLER and a bit less built-in foil shape for a more “throw-around” persona. Added luff curve has seriously improved the sails’ wind range and allows the front of the sail to fill up more. Recommended boom and mast lengths deliver a more compact sail than the KILLER.
When we first introduced KAMIKAZE to our range in 2017, the KRYPTONITE designs were obviously the basis for this sail. With a dynamic leech and crisp gust response, the KAMIKAZE will without a doubt again deliver an engaging ride that will put you in the box seat!
Aramid Draft Lock clew stringers help to stabilize draft and provide a stronger more responsive clew. The use of our hi-tech tri-Axial 2 ply laminate in the top panels of the sail keeps the swing weight down.
A 7 mil Monofilm window provides a crystal clear vision and a crisp gust response. The window in the KAMIKAZE Red is in X-ply for those who are looking for the added security of a 100% X-ply construction and a softer feel. The difference between the blue Pro model (Monofilm window and lighter 2mil foot panel) and the sturdy red heavy-duty version (full X-ply 4mil X foot panel) is now even clearer and makes the rider’s choice between the two easy.
KAMIKAZE VERSUS KILLER
When comparing KAMIKAZE and KILLER, the first is a better choice for sailors under 85 kilograms or for those who preferably sail in more stable, less gusty winds. For heavier riders, generally KILLER offers more power and more stability in gusty “on/off” conditions.
LIGHTER, STRONGER, MORE ENGAGING …
The refinements made to the design of the KAMIKAZE for 2020 have created a lighter, stronger, better performing and more engaging ride with the KAMIKAZE, blending wave and freestyle sailing into a level that is out of this world, for insane wave sailing action!
