Goya Mark 2 2022/23
Freerace 2 Cam 6 Batten
Francisco Goya has always had a heart for racing, so developing the new Mark 2 in collaboration with him came natural. If anything, the focus was on lightening the sail significantly.
Further emphasis was placed on a lighter handling feel and highwind control through refined luff curves and seam shapes as well as the Mark 2’s outline.
The boom lengths on all sizes are shorter compared to previous years.
All this said, the Mark 2 remains our throroughbred 2 Camber performance Freerace sail. A combination of excellent top-end speed, performance oriented bottom-end power, superior control and stability.
The Mark 2 offers white knuckle cam sail speed and cam sail stability without needing to rig “oversized”. You can enjoy the blistering speed and range of the sail without feeling like you are wrestling a dinosaur. The Mark 2 is best rigged in range, meaning not oversized. The design is cut to be super powerful, with the idea being to ride this sail as small as you can for the board you have. This means your sail is easier to handle because it’s smaller, there is greater efficiency overall and also less energy spent handling through maneuvers and transitions.
The Mark 2 is highly interactive, it can set a line and blaze, but it also likes quick changes of direction, upwind, deep off the wind, speed lines and carving turns. A high-performance sail based on flat out racing designs and specifically developed to perform on Hydrofoil and Slalom boards alike. Designed with real world racing and foiling in mind, it pairs best with the Proton Pro IV.
X-Ply Window Panels. X-Ply offers the same weight and feel of a clear window construction. The difference is increased durability through improved tear resistance. X-Ply film reinforced with yarns is incredibly tear resistant, the perfect body panel material for people looking for maximum durability.
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.
X-Ply Luff Panels. Delivering just the right blend between elasticity needed for a luff panel and crispness needed for a sail that’s supposed to go extra fast and extra stable.
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.
