The S2Maui HORNET has been creating quite a buzz with performance-minded wind- foil riders who prefer a lighter sail without cams. The latest 2023 HORNET combines elements of both our Eagle-FR Foil Race as well as the RAF Banshee for the ultimate windfoil experience. A high aspect outline, lower foot and panel layout evolved from our Eagle-FR Foil Race sail is combined with a 6-batten RAF skeleton and a tighter, foil specific leech twist profile. Ultralight Technora™ Spacelight™ is used in the leech twist zone together with Technical new low stretch Carbon WX Spacelight™ in the clew for an incredibly stable and light weight wing structure! Powerful shaping and high efficiency leech tension accelerates quickly, lifting you up on the foil, while perfect balance and more forward draft position give outstanding stability and glide during flight. The Hornet is the perfect wind foil engine for the majority of riders, providing a high performance outline with the simplicity and light weight of a no-cam.
“The new Hornet is bred from all our work on the V-FR packaged into a lighter, more user friendly sail. It has quickly become the perfect all around foil freeride sail, light weight, easy to rig, stable and great all around range. Rotation is smooth and easy, making foiling gybes a breeze!!”
For the 2023 Hornet, we increased the use of performance film oriented in a panel layout closer to our highly developed Eagle-FR foil race sail, which together with more forward draft lower sail body shaping gives it a direct feel, explosive acceleration and expanded wind range.
