2014 Ghost XT
Side-shore light-weight wave sail
The Ultimate five batten side-shore wave sail meets the ultimate, high tech materials.
Seeing a Ghost-XT run laps around them at the break will haunt the minds of those who have not yet experienced it. Meticulously refined profile, tension and shaping relationships are tuned to the finest materials.
After five seasons of using the ultralight and superstrong TechnoraTM scrim laminate in our Ghost-XT, it has thoroughly proven its performance and durability. Never ones to settle, we have continued to find ways to further reduce the weight of the ridiculously light weight Ghost XT for 2014. Increased use of TechnoraTM, combined with a new window x-ply material, makes the Ghost disappear in your hands like never before.
With shaping based on Legend development, but now completely adapted to the most technological light-weight materials, the Ghost-XT brings the performance level up another notch.
A moderately forward draft position and sleek profile allow an effortless flow as you slice the wave to shreds. Compared to everything else, the Ghost-XT feels significantly lighter, quieter, and softer. You can truly forget about the sail as you surf the wave.
The Ghost-XT's combination of power, stability, control, and ultra-light weight make it a versatile wave performer for those who appreciate the best.
What is TechnoraTM
TechnoraTM is a very strong and light para-aramid fiber. Its tensile strength to weight ratio is 3x greater than that of fiberglass, polyester or nylon yarns which are other common fibres used in laminate sail cloth. TechnoraTM also has excellent fatigue resistance which means that it holds up very well to repeated loading, flexing, abrasion and UV. The TechnoraTM laminate cloth used in the GHOSTXT provides the ultimate in light weight and stability with good durability.
