The North Idol Ltd Windsurfing Sail 2018 is as Light, lighter and as radical as possible! The IDOL_LTD is the personal pro model of freestyle record world champion Gollito Estredo. For this freestyle genius Kai Hopf has fulfilled all his wishes and created the most sophisticated, extreme freestyle production sail that we have ever built. All IDOL_LTD's are unbelievably light sails because instead of conventional X.PLY the futuristic high-tech laminate "ODL" is being used in combination with our 4mil ULTRA.FILM. These materials are 50% lighter than conventional sail cloth and push the weight to sensationally low. To clarify: The weight of IDOL_LTD corresponds to a 1.5m smaller HERO / VOLT (e.g. 4.8 compares to 3.4)! 2018 all IDOL LTD generate even more performance plus and the smaller sizes are also significantly easier to control in overpowered conditions.
1. Even if other brands do not speak about it, we will tell the truth: ultra lightweight can only be achieved through the reduction of material thickness. Since the film thickness of the ODL laminate is reduced to the absolute minimum, the UV stability is limited. Therefore, this sail is excluded from the usual NorthSails 2+3.year.warranty!
2. Q: Why are we still using a rather "boring" looking white film in the center panel? A: We are using a high-end monofilm called ULTRA.FILM which is lighter and stronger than any other monofilm available making the IDOL_LTD the lightest monofilm Freestyle sail on the market . Unfortunately this high-end monofilm is only available in white color.
