Goya Fringe (2021)
Goya Fringe Pro - 3 Batten Wave SailGoya brings a pure surf wave, 3 batten windsurfing sail to the table for 2020. The Fringe Pro is incredibly light-weight with effortless handling, making it the Goya pick for many top pros (including Keith Teboul, Loick Lesauvage, and Jason Diffin). So light in your hands and with an incredible view through the huge window - you will feel like you are surfing with no sail at all! The “Direct Connect” foot batten back end to clew configuration really adds to the precise feel and handling of this maneuver wave sail. Easy power and finesse with a fingertip. Golden touch really describes the feeling of Fringe Pro in the surf.
Not just confined to the waves, the huge range of available sizes from 2.8 all the way up to 6.3 makes the Fringe Pro is a great choice for smaller riders seeking a lighter weight, easy handling rig for training and light air cruising. Also great for windfoiling because there is so much power for such a light sail. Recreational foil sailing is pure bliss with the Fringe Pro.
The Fringe Pro has a Bi-Ply window, UV protected, double layer laminated clear film that lasts 3x as long as mono film for cracking and is much more resistant to hard creases. Bi-ply represents a massive improvement in window film technology.
Pro Construction, Bi-Ply & Scrim.
Bi-Ply Window Panels. Bi-Ply has the visibility and firmness of monofilm, but lasts three times longer, for multiple reasons. Our 6 mil Bi-Ply is made from 2 layers of 3 mil film, laminated together with glue containing a UV inhibitor which greatly extends the life of the film. By being made from 2 thinner layers, the material is more flexible, stays more supple longer and offers much more resistance to the creasing and eventual breaking that monofilm can suffer. This is really big news as it is a material that offers a more durable alternative to monofilm, with the same perfect clarity. All Goya films, including Scrim, Bi-Ply and X-Ply are made in the USA by Dimension Polyant ® to the highest standards of sail cloth technology.
Scrim Body Panels. The colored Scrim material used in the main panels offers super strong durability, super light weight and a supple and alive feel throughout the sail.
Scrim Luff Panels. The new Scrim luff panels are making the sails feel super crisp and quick, while still being flexible. It’s simply a lighter feeling in the hands. The beautiful thing about Scrim is the general silkiness of the material, so much the opposite of the hardness associated with most laminates. The practical thing about Scrim is that it comes back to zero after being loaded. It stays the same. Whereas Dacron grows at various rates as you use it.
Features. Carbon Stretch Control, Titanium Clew Ring, Rip Stop Sleeve and a Molded Tack Fairing round off the peak quality package. Sleeve cut treatments as well as tack and foot reinforcements are now folded to increase durability and prevent edge fraying. A wide upper leech Marker reinforcement prevents breakdown of the leech in strong wind conditions such as Pozo, the Gorge and Omaezaki.
