It’s all in the details!
Continuing on the development of the original SALT, the new SALT 3G has been further developed to increase drive and top-end speed whilst reducing overall weight and the feel of the sail. Aiming towards a more agile feel with increased performance characteristics, the SALT 3G takes all our hard work from the first series to make life that bit sweeter when powering down the wave to aim for a hard bottom turn or tearing up the lip when back on the top. The ultra lightweight and balanced drive is perfect for those who go extreme in their manoeuvres and makes easy work of basics like takas and table-tops.
• New leech opening increasing top-end speed and give lighter feel.
• Reshaping of the lowest 2 battens to increase batten rotation and giving more drive.
• Smaller batten pockets and reducing overlapping materials has created one of the lightest 4-batten sails on the market today.
• The moulded kevlar fairing protects and lasts; never tearing or wearing out from being rubbed against hard surfaces.
• The lower panel of the sail features hidden stitches, never hindering the structure of the sail as it is dragged across the rough non-skid surface of a board.
• The construction and flow of the top batten twist controls the way the whole sail body catches the wind during cutbacks and assists sail rotation during manoeuvres.
• A heavy duty, stainless steel, 3-roller downhaul pulley for effortless rigging.
Tuning: It's simple! Once you have inserted mast the main points to look at for correct tuning are the following: Downhaul tension and batten tension. Outhaul tension you can vary according to wind strength.
Downhaul Tension: when applying downhaul, you will see that between 1 and 2 from the top a horizontal 'V' shape will form from the loose material. The 'V' will have to be loose till half way towards the mast sleeve. The battens have to sit in line with the front of the mast. No need to look at other areas to check the correct downhaul setting. If you follow the specs given on the sail, with a Point-7 extension you will get it to the right trim immediately. For more bump and jump condition you can pull a centimetre more downhaul.
Batten settings: Put good tension till you will see the profile on batten 1 and 4 from the top. The other battens need just enough tension to remove wrinkles. Don't over tension.
Outhaul settings: Keep the outhaul positive 2cm in light wind and add up to 4cm in stronger conditions.
