Banzai Pro
Powerwave 4 Batten

The new Banzai is the state-of-the-art, full throttle, explosive power, technical jump and maneuver World Cup performance wave sail.

Banzai provides instant yet flexible power with very light handling alongside massive range in a wide variety of conditions. Equally at home in straight onshore wind and stormy surf, or brushed offshore reef break perfection- Banzai will give you the speed, control and confidence you need to push your performance level up. Banzai is designed to give you the power and neutral handling you need on the water, and the easy, reactive, finger-tip control you need in the air. Banzai also excels in wave style flat water/chop jump and maneuver sailing.

The 2017 Banzai comes with a revolutionary Bi-Ply window. Bi-Ply has the visibility and firmness of monofilm, but lasts three times longer for multiple reasons. Read more about it in the sail faetures.

The Banzai pairs with multi-fin and single-fin wave boards and matches best with the Custom Surfwave and One Freewave.

Recommended wave mast 90 Pro.
Optional flatwater and bump & jump mast 70 Pro.

Construction

Pro Scrim & Bi-Ply

The Scrim material used in the main panels offers super strong durability, super light weight and a supple and alive feel. Woven Dacron/Scrim hybrid luff panels, CSC™ Carbon Stretch Control, Poly Clew TCR™ Titanium Clew Rings, RSS™ Rip Stop Sleeve and the MTF™ Molded Tack Fairing round off the peak quality package. Sleeve cut treatments as well as tack and foot reinforcements are now folded to increase durability and prevent edge fraying. A scalloped upper leech reinforcement prevents breakdown of the leech from fluttering in strong wind conditions such as Omaezaki, the Gorge and Pozo.

Bi-Ply has the visibility and firmness of monofilm, but lasts three times longer for multiple reasons. Our 6 mil Bi-Ply is made from 2 layers of 3 mil film, laminated together with glue containing a UV inhibitor which greatly extends the life of the film. By being made from 2 thinner layers, the material is more flexible, stays more supple longer and offers much more resistance to the creasing and eventual breaking that monofilm can suffer. This is really big news as it is a material that offers a more durable alternative to monofilm, with the same perfect clarity. All Goya films, including Scrim, Bi-Ply and X-Ply are made in the USA by Dimension Polyant ® to the highest standards of sail cloth technology. What this means is supreme quality control and film consistency.
