The Delta Quick Review: Lots of performance with no headaches. That's what the Oxygen is all about. It has a good amount of seam shaping for a clean stable draft that will rival cam sails, just without the rigging headaches.
The Oxygen likes to have a loose leech, and like a good racy sail trimmed for speed it lets you focus on going fast without worrying about the sail. In gusts you feel the increase in speed but there's little tug on the back hand.
We love that the short luff lets you rig the 6.8 on a 430, while a 460 gets you all the way up to the 7.8. A bonus is that the Oxygen rigs well on a lot of different masts including fat and skinny. This makes the perfect big sail to add to your bump and jump quiver as odds are it will fit whatever mast you've already got.
The Oxygen has lungs – it’s alive – and breathes like no other sail!
With the pace and response of a full-on slalom rig this no-cam profile rivals all but the best for outright speed and screaming reaches that will blow your mind.
So, unless you only race downwind, overpowered, why would you ever want cams anyway? Year after year magazine tests confirm the pedigree and how the Oxygen’s enormous tuning range delivers incredible control in a high variety of conditions for a permanently easy, efficient ride.
For 2016 the forward batten taper has been tuned for extra depth and reactivity across a wider band of use.
