Our MFR sails just hit their successful live test run in Torbole, Italy, right after the RS:X World Championships at lake Garda at the end of September.
The MFR line – or M8 Foil Racing line – and the newly tested sails performed as we expected. Our new sails come in sizes from 7.0 to 11.0 and beside their design optimised for racing, they come with one mast size, where the larger sizes use an extender. During the design process our goal was to get you one mast no matter the size of the sail or the strength of the wind. Let’s keep sails simple!
The new MFR sail showed its potential immediately! Two 9.5 sails were soaring across the lake, sailed on a Pirate custom/M8 board and an AFS 1000R.

The second bigger test was just a couple of days ago in Galicia, playing with the rig, tensions and battens.
A quick message from @Juan (Juan Vieito Cobián) after the test:
“The rotation of the cambers are excellent. On the other hand, during sailing I have a really good feeling, there was no pressure on my back hand so I can do a deeper set up. It is great! In general the sail is easy to sail, it has a very good balance in up wind and down wind too. I have a lot of control. I think the sail plan area is more balanced. Pumping is good, the sail breathes correctly.”
Now it’s time for some racing.
More videos and feedbacks are coming soon. Watch out!
All sail sizes can be preordered from 15th October, with early 2020 delivery.
