The North Ice 5.3m2 used windsurfing sail in good condition is for wave, freestyle and freeride use.
The radical look of the new Ice reveals just how much of North's development work turns into great performing products. This World Cup wave sail has the potential to get the maximum out of any situation even in very critical conditions.
Evolution is a constant step by step process, could even the ultimate sail be improved? Kai Hopf looked into every detail of the Ice to see. From the refinement of the luff curve to the optimization of the sail foil tension and defining new batten profiles - hardly a design feature was omitted. The results are impressive: the 2011 Ice feels much lighter in your hands and is even more radical and direct.
In addition the key success factors of the Ice remain: the sensational handling as a result of the optimized foot geometry (especially when descending the wave), the impressive performance over a very wide wind range and the instantaneous reaction. Finally the iMODULAR.DESIGN’s optimized sail weight has a huge impact on handling. Since the Ice was designed for all World Cup spots it functions equally well from Ho’okipa to Sylt, to Gran Canaria or at your favorite spot.
All Ice sizes were designed for RDM masts, but they are still compatible with SDM masts. That’s why the new Ice feels softer and can be easily controlled and pumped onto the plane. These abilities are also supported by the modified luff curve and the optimized leech tension.
Ice HD – The Ice is now also available in monofilm-free, hardcore X.PLY version.

NORTH SAILS INTEGRATED.RIG.TECHNOLOGY – The perfect rig
For over a decade North Sails has been one of the few brands who develop all windsurfing rig components for use exclusively by North Sails. This guarantees that all North Sails components are state of the art and work better when used in conjunction with a North Sail to generate the absolute maximum performance.
NORTH SAILS BEST.FIT.SYSTEM – Perfectly matching components
One thing is sure all North Sails components fit almost all sails of different brands and improve their performance. In addition there are ideal combinations that can get the maximum out of every rig. Components within the Red, Silver, Gold and Platinum series make great combinations and were designed to perfectly match each other. In terms of performance and price the following rule of thumb applies: the more money you spend, the lighter, more dynamic and powerful your rig will be. This means that you determine how much performance you need or how much you are willing to invest in your performance.
