Severne Sails 2015

[rev_slider “Severne sails 2015”]
Severne have released their 2015 range of sails …
The big news is the new Blade Pro…Lighter & stronger thanks to HyperSpider membrane technology.

It has all the familiar characteristics of the Blade that everyone loves, the stable balanced power feeling between the hands, low down power and drive, but then there’s this added responsiveness and reactivity.
It’s light, but there’s an extra element of precision and control when hitting the lip, and how quickly everything is responding. An instantaneousness about everything.
The Blade Pro’s truly are exceptional.

Severne has a created a great range of sails , head over to the Severne website to see the whole range.

We will be updating with the info on the Severne range as summer draws closer ! Check out picks below .!
