NeilPryde Atlas 2018
When you need to get safely across the white lines, or charge upwind through lulls, the 2018 Atlas delivers reassuring power and control; all that you need in on-shore wave conditions.
Early to plane, the Atlas is up and ready to get into the action with efficient, controllable power at all times. Featuring great upwind ability and acceleration, the Atlas pushes hard with great profile stability.
-Higher Draft Distribution combined with a deep profile, generates power and maximum upwind performance in on-shore conditions.
-Fuse Pocket construction for a fully symmetrical batten cavity.
-Higher Leech tension allowing the sail to power up quickly in minimal wind conditions by creating some lift even in the head.
-Even twist for optimum response and constant drive, while being able to release any excessive pressure and release back-hand overload.
-Rider focused center of effort: Deep profile focused on lower 2 battens. Perfectly balanced power to ensure profile stability and control.
The new Fuse Pocket construction introduced this season in the wave and freestyle program, allows us to reduce the seam shaping and retain power and drive the Atlas has been known for.
This results in a sail that feels much lighter in the hands that maintains drive and upwind performance.
n parallel, the new Powerfuse allows us to reduce the weight while increasing the strength in critical sections.
