Mark Pro - Freerace 6 Batten
The Delta Quick Review: As a brand usually associated with Maui and wave sailing, Goya is doing a lot of work to branch out into other facets of the sport. The board range now has more freeride and slalom models than ones for the waves. The sail line is expanding in this direction as well, and we know there is a cam'd sail that could see the light of day in 2018. But for 2017 the no-cam Mark is the raciest sail. Having the Nexus already established for recreational freerider's, the Mark has been made as racy as a no cam can get. There is a noticeable amount of seam shaping to give it something of a cam like shape, and while the luff sleeve can take an SDM mast it is still fairly tight on an RDM, once again helping lock in the shape. On the water the sail feels very stable even when taken out in conditions that would overpower lesser sails. The cam comparison is very easy to make in straight line performance and even in the gybe there's a bit of a thunk like a cam sail... not as bad, but more than you'd expect for a no cam. The head twists perfectly to make tuning easy, and by design, it absorb huge gusts so all you notice is acceleration. It truly is as racy a sail as you can make without cams.
Racing speed made simple. This camless freerace sail is quick to rig and easy to tune.
Delivering impressive low end torque and acceleration combined with easy handling when super powered, the Mark allows you to focus on your line and tactics rather than managing your sail. Super lightweight 6 batten build plus truncated boom length give Mark a compact, light, easy feeling as you accelerate, when you are powered up at speed and through high speed technical transitions around the mark. Mark is best
paired with a fast freeride or dedicated slalom/racing board.
Super light super strong scrim panels, X-ply luff panel, 5mil mono film main window, carbon fiber stretch control, stiff and light tubular battens, rip stop sleeve, molded tack fairing.
New for 2018
Big results from small refinements on Mark 2018. Holding the same luff and boom lengths and basic outlines from last season, the change in Mark is in the heart of the sail, the profile, twist and release. A little more shape forward, a smooth transition, and a smooth and clean release, particularly in the leech area just above the boom. The Mark has a more neutral feel when powered up, and when the big gust hits, the sail stays settled. We have updated the material in the tack and foot of the sail- the area that
seems the most impacts, damage etc. with stronger film, stronger yarn configurations in the laminate, and also we’ve make this material in the body color of the sail for more visual impact on the water, style and safety. New combination nylon/composite leech mini battens stabilize the leech trailing edge making the sail quieter in the hands and also more durable against material breakdown caused by an excessively fluttering
