Reintroduced for 2016, this classic design draws on a long legacy of winning tests—setting the standard for freeride performance. The signature quality of the Sprint is its early planing and balanced feel. In this latest incarnation, the range has been updated to incorporate our Fusion Mono Construction and features radial warp-oriented dacron center panels that improve both shape and durability.
The Sprint is ideal for riders looking for versatility and simplicity in an all-around, no-cam sail. East to rig and easy to sail, the Sprint is fun, fast and lightweight. Sizes 6.4 to 7.7 feature 6 battens for extended performance on large freeride/slalom boards.
Sizes: 5.2, 5.8, 6.4, 7.1, 7.7
- Size-optimized Batten Geometry = Minimum weight, maximum stability (Sizes 5.2, 5.8 = 5 battens)
- Center/Forward Shape = Early planing + balanced power
- Medium-to-High Aspect Ratio = Easy handling + wide range
- Scrim Luff Panel = Balances power + maintains drive
Standard Clew Construction
The radial clew is the strongest and lightest design in the industry. A custom titanium ring is connected directly to radial Kevlar load strips via high-tenacity nylon webbing. The Warp Kevlar taffeta leech and foot tapes carry the perimeter loads.
Durable molded EVA tack fairing that folds back for easy rigging and protects the sailor’s feet, mast and board. It features a grommet for the uphaul line and a mesh pocket with a Velcro closure for storing the downhaul line.
6-Ply Batten Pocket Construction
Striking a critical balance between light weight and durability, the batten pocket balances the power loads and has scuff protection on both sides of the sail.
Roller Tack Pulley
A downhaul pulley that integrates a lightweight die-cast stainless steel housing and low-friction Nylatron GSM pulleys. It provides both standard 6:1 and 4:1 rigging options. This system makes downhauling very easy and reduces wear and tear on the downhaul line.
The unique geometry of our pulley offers both traditional 6:1 AND 4:1 “loop-and-go” rigging.
Secure mesh pocket with Velcro for storing the downhaul line.
Boom Opening + Position Marker
The boom opening has a long sleeve cutout for easy rigging, and features position markers that enable perfect boom positioning every time you rig.
Naish sails include comprehensive lightweight PVC scuff protection for both sides of the sail.
