The Catalyst is the lightest, production 3-batten wave sail. For 2018, engineering improvements have allowed us to use full Technora SpaceLight™ in the entire main sail body, creating a noticeable improvement in smooth, quiet and more balanced handling. The new Technora clew and perimeter construction reduces swing weight to unbelievable levels. The ultra-maneuverable and lightning quick Catalyst performs at the highest level in sideshore conditions and radical maneuvers. The center of effort is perfectly positioned to naturally draw fantasy, surf- style lines on the wave face, while S2Maui’s exclusive FocusPoint™ shaping ensures the stable pro le and good wind range necessary to handle gusty offshore conditions. As the name suggests, the Catalyst’s instant reactivity will energize your wave ride and facilitate aggressive lines and progressive moves.
The 2018 Catalyst feels significantly lighter, smoother and more draft forward thanks to expanding the excellent load carrying properties of SpaceLight™ to the entire sail body. S2Maui’s FocusPoint™ shaping concentrates the shape where it is most important for supporting the sail structure, optimizing balance while allowing the sail to feel light and effortless. Our load oriented WARP-PATH™ panel layout, using our exclusive, ultra-light, low stretch SpaceLight™ laminate material, contributes to the stability and responsiveness of the sail as well as to the incredible light weight.
