2021 SEVERNE HGO – IQ Foil
The HGO is a first of its kind. A foil racing sail built especially for the official IQFOIL class and will be the official sail for the 2024 Paris Olympic games. HGO is based on Severne’s already successful foil racing platform with multiple titles under its belt.
In 2019 World Sailing called for Sea Trials to select the equipment for the next Olympic Games in Paris’24. When this opportunity presented itself, Gonzalo Costa Hoevel took the lead of the project together with Ben Severne in creating the ultimate foil racing sail. Countless hours of R&D and brainstorming has resulted in a sail that not only will make you faster on the racecourse but also deliver top speeds.
The HGO focuses on speed and ease of handle with a reduced luff curve and re-distribution of shaping. The control gained from these design features allows for any foil racing newcomer to get to competition level speeds in no time.
- MODIFIED OUTLINE WITH REDUCED FOOT SIZE TO ENABLE USE ON A FIN.
- DURABILITY FOCUS WITH ADDED SAIL REINFORCEMENTS AND STRONGEST BATTEN SPEC.
- LESS EXTREME LUFF CURVE TO REDUCE STRESS ON MASTS.
- XL CAMS TO REDUCE LOAD ON MAST AND IMPROVE ROTATION.
- REDISTRIBUTION OF SHAPING FOR EXPANDED WIND RANGE AND LIGHTER FEEL.
