North Sails HERO 2017


With the 2017 HERO we created the most universal 4-batten wave sail, a true World Cup weapon to work in all conditions around the globe. The brand-new edition with HOLLOW.LOWER.LEECH and reworked twist pattern is even more stable and balanced now, yet delivering superb power when underpowered. On top the favorite sail of wave superhero Victor Fernandez guarantees maximum performance independently of the sailor's weight.

Tireless progression and the new HOLLOW.LOWER.LEECH make the HERO an exceptional hardcore wave sail. It performs on top level even at the toughest spots like on the Canaries and in South Africa. There the HERO works perfectly in overpowered jumping conditions. At the same time it is incredibly powerful in underpowered down the line surfing, like on Maui and Mauritius.

Introduced with last years HERO, Kai Hopf moved up the batten above the boom to enlarge the gap to the foot batten, similar to a 3-batten sail. This BATTEN-FREE.BOOMZONE makes for a great on-off. The batten-free zone is also super effective to pump and offers no resistance for the wind to fill out the profile in underpowered surf, just like a typical 3-batten sail!

To create maximum stability in high wind Kai added two MINI.BATTENS and a HOLLOW.LOWER.LEECH right above the boom. The new RADIAL.LOAD.STRIPES starting from the clew stabilize especially the batten-free zone making for a seamless and constant load distribution.

The outcome is a 4-batten wave sail with an unmatched wind range! It combines best low-end power of the 2016 HERO with the control and stability of the successful 2015 model. The low weight makes for incredible handling, while rigging you can already imagine how light and soft the sail feels. The rotation is as smooth as silk, even with minimal outhaul tension. The top of the sail works very effectively to support the power, therefore you can safely choose a sail size smaller than with many other wave sails. This applies to almost any rider, regardless of their weight. For sure the new HERO is the best choice for wave oriented rider and an essential around any wave break.
