The VG7 design is recognizable by its distinctive panel geometry, utilising a unique central spine of Aramid cloth (Technora) to transmit the loads through the sail. This is fundamental to how the design works and is radically different from any other sail. In front and behind this spine the cloth has designed in "flex" and it is the balance between the stiffness of the spine and the flex of the other panels that keeps the sail driving in control through the wind range. The VG7 is constructed from high end laminated sail cloth of European and USA origin. We have extensive experience designing and building with these cloths and our methods lead to very long sail life. It is normal to find 12 year old Demon Design Sails being raced competitively. Our construction techniques have been developed over the last 30 years and result in exceptionally well made sails. The best sails, in the best materials, with the best construction techniques, built by the best sailmakers and designed by the best sail designers.
This version is the all-wind/all-conditions sail available in 9.5, 8.5 and 7.5 sizes. 2019 World championship winning sail, dominating the strong wind event in Germany and winning 11 out of the 12 races during the week. This sail can be set from full tight leech powerhouse right through to flat loose leech blaster. Its useable and effective shape range is completely unmatched in the sailing world. All the sizes of the VG7_M2L use the same size/stiffness mast. The Demon Design 560/38. The VG7_M2L is the sail we recommend first for longboard use. Over a season/range of conditions its adaptability means it is the fastest sail available
The Lightwind powerhouse. In sizes 9.5/8.5 and 7.5 (all on the 560/36 Demon Design Mast) 2020 European champion sail 5 batten sail designed for sub 14 knot conditions. This sail is different to the VG7_M2l, it is VERY full and powerful and does not flatten in the head under downhaul like the M2L. The combination of shaping and panel geometry controlling the top of the sail make the 5B1 the most powerfully efficient sail currently made for Longboards. We are very specific when we talk about powerfully efficient, our sails produce powerful forward drive that means they can drive a longboards fast forwards. It is hard to imagine a more powerful pumping lightwind sail than the VG7_5B1.
New for 2022, The VG7_6B1 is blending the 2 other versions of the VG7 in a 7 batten panel layout. The 6B1 has a slightly narrowed sleeve in the upper sections, leading to quicker power ups and more aggresive acceleration. The panel geometry is subtely different through the mid sections, give more support to the mid leech, whilst allowing a softer top leech under load.
