Premium balance & stability in challenging conditions is what the Purelip is all about. Playing in the waves is demanding, both for you and your gear. The number one priority of the Purelip is to be able to handle brutal poundings in breaking surf, followed by rig stability in varying winds associated with wavesailing. Stability and durability are the strong suits of the Purelip, which magazine test reports over the years undoubtedly confirm. The Purelip 2018 is built to survive: total xply construction, 5mil triax low, 4mil biax window sections and our new 3.5 biax upper body provides the stability you need while making sure the sail is reinforced to handle anything you put in its way. Sometimes conditions take you to limits... go there and beyond with total confidence in the Purelip.

Frequently asked questions?

I can see minor colour inconsistancy in the coloured monofilm material, is this a quality problem?
Loftsails using high quality Dimension Polyant films considered as a leading film manufacturer. The BI-PLY colored monofilm are two films laminated together. During production there is a large temperature difference between the two films at the lamination point. This causes the top film (film with color adhesive) to slightly shrink and the bottom film does not shrink at the same rate. This can cause "a slight minimal wave or impression" in the fabric. There is no concern on laminate quality.
What does 1 Year Unconditional + 1 Year Conditional warranty cover?
Warranty is valid 2 years after date of purchase. When making a warranty claim in the first year the product is unconditionally warranted. When making a warranty claim in the 2nd year the product must have clearly suffered from a manufacturer error.
When unrolling my sail some battens are looking pre-curved?
All windsurfing sails with battens experience batten bending when rolling for transport. The battens will bend because of the curves cut into the sail to produce profile. Loftsails are rolled right side up, this flexes the battens as if the sail is on starboard tack. Battens are made from polyester, carbon and resin. They remember their being curved, which gives the sail a pre-disposition to be on starboard tack. This results in the sail having a preference to be on starboard tack. This asymmetric character is normally not an issue. Rolling the sail port side up will tend to bend the battens in the opposite direction which can minimize this asymmetric character.
Why are there small wrinkels visible in the footpanel of my sail?
Monty comments: Wrinkles in the foot panel are common to my designs! There is always alot of profile worked into the bottom of the vertical seam, I have tried to remove the wrinkles from the lower panel but this results in flatter shapes that do improve performance. Many of our sails do not show such foot panel wrinkles, however unfortunately one could say they are typical of my designs.
