Northwave’s best selling sail!, the ZX Series is in its
7th year of existence and is currently being offered in a ZX-9
and ZX-SE (Special Edition) version.
The ZX-9, with its colorful, lightweight dacron material in the
overhead leech panel, offers an amazingly lightweight and forgiving
sensation through all your transitions and over-powered conditions.
Due to its responsive, oversized mylar window, the ZX has all the low
end response of a fuller cut sail while its 5th RBS batten still
holds its top end intact while rivaling slalom sails in a head to head
The new ZX-Special Edition sail has received a material upgrade
of aramid reinforced x-ply in the load panels as well as the implementation
of the new high-tec Technora in the upper leech panel.
We recommend the ZXs for the sailor who has appreciated our Surflites
and ZX models of the past, but is now looking to enhance their sailing
experience. Both these models make fantastic freeride sails that also
thrive in coastal wave conditions.
