INTRODUCING THE QU4D

Hot Sails Maui unveil their brand new super compact 4 batten wave sail,the QU4d, find out all about it now

Overview

The QU4D is our new super compact 4 batten wave sail designed for radical and aggressive riders for use in a variety of wave conditions. Whether you enjoy the light and compact feel as you crank your bottom turn or rotate quicker in the air thanks to the shorter luff we are confident that you will ride harder, faster and more radical than ever before. The QU4D incorporates our super light C1295 laminate and ODL09 Technora which is combined with our new SlamLam® reinforced window making this a super strong wave sail which will take a pounding while remaining very light. 

Rigging

Designed to rig on short masts the overall rig weight is reduced further. You will only need a 370 to rig 5.2 through 4.7 and a 340 for the smaller sizes. The 4.3 can be rigged on either a 370 or a 340, this will depend partly on the sailor weight and what you have available, similar is true of the 5.2, which can be rigged on either a 370 or 400. The boom lengths have been kept down to promote easily handling, in fact each size has a boom shorter than the Firelight of a similar size. 

Colors

At the time of launch we are only releasing one color option, this is the TEAM Ed. (C1).
