Is what we call a total revolution in slalom. Have you ever dreamed to have a no cam sail with the same performance as a real cam racing sail? Or have you ever dreamed to have a cam sail with the weight of a no cam sail? The AC-Z is both!!

THE TESTS ON MAGAZINES SAY
Will be surprised when testing this new Point-7 project. Why you not to being one of the first to tell the others how the new AC-Z feels?
The AC-Z has a deep profile in the lower part of the sail, till just the boom height, shallowing down over the boom, but consistent all the way to the top. From the base, up to the boom, it has a wide sleeve like a race sail, but that completely shrinks down to be a no-cam sleeve above it. 2 cams are placed under the boom with the same set-up as the rest of our cams sail lines. The slalom base, the outline and the leach opening are exactly the Point-7 classical trademarks. Thanks to the wide lower mast sleeve, inserting the mast is as easy as a cam sail, meaning that the mast goes straight to the top without any effort. Setting a bit of downhaul, pop in the 2 cams in no time, before down hauling the sail all the way to the final setting, then you are ready to place the boom on, and start blasting on the water.
ON THE WATER
Yes, it has cams, even if you will not feel it in the jibes as the XXL cam below the boom, takes all the responsibility for the smoothest rotation that only a no cam sail can give. Yes, it has a wide mast sleeves which rails the board as a pure race sail, but you will not realize when you will water start, as the mast sleeve is just below the boom. This makes the sail light and with no water on the upper part, making it as easy as a wave sail to water start. As soon as you will close the gap, the pressure and drive the AC-Z will deliver to your board, will make you remember that the sail has a wide sleeve and cams. The AC-Z will bring you to the figures never seen on your GPS.
ON THE STRAIGHT LINE
When cruising, the power of the wider lower pocket, and the two cams, give the same drive as a pure race sail. It does not suffer lulls, and the windier the faster it accelerates. You will not realize that it's a no cam sail over the boom, and for those who never had cams, they will only discover a new world of acceleration, speed, stability?and will forget that they have a sail with 2 cams!
IN THE JIBE
Carving the board has never been so nice, as the power is at the bottom and frontal, to pin down the board, and rail with precision. When rotating the sail, you will not feel the cams move to the new tack. The XXL Point-7 cam will create a fast leverage to the battens to allow smooth and perfect timing change. It will not punish any mistakes by the rider. You will go to the beach and check if the big XXL cam is actually in.
Do not worry, there is no wide mast sleeve from the boom up to the top of the sail. It's easy as a wave sail to uphaul the sail, or to water start. No water can fill up the lower wide sleeve, and even if it would, it does not create any heavier leverage.
We offer the sail in worlds premiere for 2020. Sizes: from 5.2 all the way to 9.4
