The Superhero 2019 continues to be a market reference among modern and multi-purpose wave sails. In terms of behavior, it is an even more homogeneous sail, with a wider field of use, however in the context of a radical waveriding. The sail got the testers' preference.

Finally, as far as neutrality is concerned, the Fringe is the best of all, the Horizon and the RRD the least neutral. The others all have good neutrality, and are equivalent from this point of view, except for the slightly less neutral Gun Sails Seal.

Have a good choice. Fabio Muriano
