2023 NP Zone Pro HD
The lightest, fastest, most effortless pure wave riding experience available. Extremely fast and neutral on the wave, the Zone will allow you to concentrate 100% on your rail work and maneuvers.
Built to handle the biggest waves on earth, you will hit sections of the wave you have never imagined possible glide through moves with ease. Pure wave riding at its best.
Designed and tested at our NeilPryde Maui Design Center by Robert Stroj, then further developed through our team riders' feedback from across the world. No stone is left uncovered in our relentless drive to be the best at what we do.
Pro HD Construction:
DP LAMINATES WITH TECHNORA WARP YARNS AND LAMINATED POWERFUSE TACK AND CLEW PANELS
POWERFUSE tack and clew panels are made from fully laminated, overlapping yarns which radiate from points of high loads. Our unique radial construction creates variable thickness panels which gradually thin out towards the centre of the sail to reduce weight and distribute loads while eliminating stretch and deformation.
Centre upper panels use LIGHTWEIGHT SCRIM laminate to minimize weight while providing outstanding rip-resist- ance due to the high yarn density of this material.
Lightweight 3mil laminate with unidirectional TECHNORA fibres strategically placed in the leech panels to control stretch and stabilize the shape of the sail.
Rip-stop TAFFETA X-Ply laminate luff panel combines excellent stitch holding properties with responsive elasticity which makes the sail softer and more forgiving than regular X-Ply but lighter and more responsive compared to Dacron.
ULTRA-PE (Dyneema equivalent) reinforced clear X-Ply window panel for added durability. This Ultra-PE laminate is thinner and lighter than the clear window found in regular Pro construction (5mil instead of 7mil). This makes Pro HD feel slightly softer compared to Pro construction and also slightly lighter in total weight.
Lightest Possible Feeling
Open leach, low luff tension and the Dacron luff panel combine to give the Zone the most lightweight, neutral and maneuverable feeling of any of our wave sails.
Wide Wind Range
A large tuning range that allows the rider to trim the sail for all conditions. Aimed for down-the-line conditions, the Zone rigs with less downhaul tension than other sails to allow the sail to 'breathe' when pumping and going over chop on the wave.
Light weight and extremely neutral, you won't feel excessive back hand pressure when wave riding and the sail will remain neutral even in the steepest and most critical of wave-riding positions. Moves like 360s and goiters will become even more accessible.
4 Batten Layout
4 batten layout to provide a stable base and allow us to use the lowest possible luff curve so that the sail can feel as neutral as possible.
