2021 ICON

The 2021 Icon is defined by its ease of handling utilizing a powerful and direct riding feel. The five batten panel layout gives you complete command in all situations and the confidence to push hard. With five battens to keep the sail draft in forward locked position, the sail works equally well for high-wind jumping environments to powering driving turns in challenging onshore conditions and all wind angles in between. Adaptability is Icon’s signature trait and a big reason it is been so popular for well over a decade. The Icon also provides the ultimate level of stability, in any wind range. This superb stability also means that the Icon is less physically demanding for the rider to use compared to the Blacktip, providing the rider with an absolute focus on maneuvers and going really fast with full control at all times.

Technical solutions on the 2021 Icon include a large monofilm window for superb visibility. The new panel layout features a light-weight Q-Ply in the luff panel, combined with a vertical kevlar load line from top to tack. This helps to control the profile as well as the longevity of the materials, hence a light-weight sail that will stay intact for many seasons to come. The -21 design features a lowered center of effort and a more forward-focused shape, combined with an improved luff curve in the upper quarter of the sail, that allows for a lower breaking point of the twist. A compact outline and medium to low aspect ratio provide a powerful front-end drive to generate speed in turns and high-end control in high-wind jumps.

Versatility is the name of the game for the avid windsurfer who wants to make the most out of any wave sailing conditions. The 2021 Icon is the most versatile wave sail out there.

// Dependable performance in all wave conditions.

// A five batten panel layout that offers superior stability and control over a wide wind range.

// Perfectly balanced draft position.

// The new Q-Ply Luff Panel offers a softer and more forward-focused power delivery on a horizontal axis. This combined with the strength provided by the vertical load line for maintained profile stability and durability.

// Precision Tapered Battens on the lower two battens. The taper is designed to push the sail profile forward and keep the draft locked in for stability.




1 // Q-Ply Luff Panel
The 2 MIL Q-Ply luff panel creates a softer and more forward focuesed power delivery. This combined with the strength provided by the vertical load line for maintained profile stability and durability.

2 //  Vertical Kevlar Load Line
Kevlar load line from top to tack to control the central effort; increase the longevity of the material which ensures that the sail profile stays in position when strong gusts hit the sail.

3 //  Kevlar Stretch Control Tendons
The Kevlar Stretch Control Tendons distribute the load throughout the surface of the sail from clew to luff. They control the breaking point for the twist, increase the wind range, and increase the longevity of the sail. An original Simmer Style feature that has been widely adopted by many other sail brands.

4 // Precision Tapered Battens
Precision tapered battens on the lower two battens. The taper is custom designed on each sail size to push the sail profile forward and keep draft locked in for stability.

5 // Finger Patch Tendons
The Finger Patch Tendons in clew create greater load distribution over a larger area of the sailcloth surface, which increases the durability, as well as the direct handling of the sail.

6 // Stainless Steel O-Ring
The Stainless Steel O-Ring provides the strongest possible connection between the boom outhaul and the sail, providing direct power delivery and sail. Simmer quality defined. 

7 // Five Batten Layout
5 batten panel layout in all sizes.
  • Superb stability
  • Wide wind range/tuning range  
  • Fingertip control
  • Light-weight handling
  • Drive to maneuver

// 5 MIL X-PLY
The most durable laminate scrim on the market. 100% polyester film, 150 microns thick, with high stretch resilience thread reinforcement in an X-pattern. The layers of film are bonded together with a UV resistance glue. The Icon features X-Ply paneling in the foot panel and clew area to handle wave sailing abuse in harsh conditions.

Made in USA.

// 2 MIL Q-PLY
Q-Ply is a colored scrim which is mainly used in the top half of the sail. The Q-Ply combines a square thread pattern with an X-pattern. This overlapping thread pattern allows us to use a much thinner polyester film, at only 50 Microns thick. Q-Ply offers super strong durability combined with lightweight performance. As it has a more flexible characteristic than X-Ply, it makes the sail feel more alive in the area where the sail is designed to move and twist.

Made in USA.
