The Icon our all time best selling sails, this is our most versitile sails in the range as it combines ease of handling with a sensationally crisp direct riding feel. The five batten panel layout gives you an absolute control in all situations and the confidence to push hard. If you are jumping in high-wind jumping in Capetown or down the line wave riding at Hookipa, the Icon ultimate level of stability in vast wind ranges. Versatility is the name of the game for the traveling windsurfer and the Icon is the most versatile sail ever designed.
For the 2019 Icon features a narrower mast sleeve in the lower sail body combines with less shaping in the dacron luff panel, this generates more direct power delivery and makes it quicker to de-power. The new vertical shaping techniques allows us to create a more harmonious sail profile which results in a more even skin tension between all areas of the sail, providing a more balanced and effective rig. The Icon Legacy features a bullet proof all x-ply / q-ply panel layout. Icon Legacy redefines what a sail can do and where it can go, where will it take you?
THE PLANING MIRACLE. This is it. Recreational windsurfing revisited. Effortless planning in the lightest of breezes. Super smooth, yet remarkably quick, responsive and maneuverable. No need for huge, high priced professional-grade racing sails, any freeride or freemove sail will do although we can highly recommend the brand new Morpho 6.9-7.6-8.4 or Ezzys Cheetah 7.0-7.5-8.0-8.5!
Theres no power hump to overcome. A specific Thommen golden area rocker line and a vee-to-quad-concave bottom shape make for a gradual transition from gliding to planning and iron out chop like nothing else. Yet, unlike other “special light wind” boards, the Gleitwunder is efficient and remains truly fun to sail when the wind picks up. The super thin hull concept, combined with a step rail design, is forgiving and promoting easy control for all levels of sailors, from beginner to expert.
Cruising around the bay? Anytime, any conditions. Carving jibes? No problem. Playing in open ocean swells? Bring it on. Chasing your buddies around the course? Hell, why not.
The GWR is designed with a tri-fin setup. As a standard, theres a carbon Power- or Tuttlebox in the rear and two carbon Slotboxes in front. K4s Thommen co-develeopment shallow water fin, the TIDE, comes in either 28, 30 or 32cm in the rear plus two K4 Rockets in 12 or 13 in front. Four WindGear footstraps complete the package.
Should you wish to upgrade your GWR with the legendary GT-9 fin from GASOIL fins, theres an additional charge of €235 for a full carbon fin (40cm max and Tuttle or Deep Tuttle only!) instead of the K4 set. A set of blankers to cover your empty slotboxes is provided with every GWR!
As the Gleitwunder is an ideal foiling platform, you can also order it with a Foilbox (specially reinforced Deep Tuttle Box and additional footstrap inserts). For this option add only €150.
