Radical and fast maneuvers, a neutral feeling and a precise control in every condition are the key points of the new Hammer. It appears a bit more direct and powerful than its forerunner, but always with controlled and balanced early planing power. You will appreciate this agility especially while planing and between the sets.
If required, the profile is easily flattened, and thus excessive power is released by a harmonic twist and a concave leech, but without appearing nervous.
Construction and equipment have not been allowed any compromise. As a radical wave sail, the Hammer is built out of 100% reinforced x-ply materials with extra reinforcements in all of the stressed zones.
100% x-ply construction Equal compatibility for standard or RDM mast Balanced power and neutral performance Maximum of control in every wind range
Renato Morlotti’s point: The ’08 Hammer is more ‘powerful’ than the ’07 Hammer model. Explain what you mean by this. Renato: The Hammer offers a more efficiently dynamic response compared to the ’07 model. This means a faster reaction body and a greater capacity to get planing in the low wind range. The concept of "power" is maybe misunderstood since both year models have the same "HP" value but the ’08 model does this more efficiently in the lower wind range than the ’07 model.
