No, that's just a link to a store where you can buy one. Severne have not updated their website for ages. Very disappointing.

there is some limited info there as well as a preorder link,
more info than website yes, the welded sounds like a interesting development,

Description





The 020 S-1 Pro introduces CARBON FUSION, the next level in load-path sail design. Panels of highly warp oriented carbon bre are welded together to form an ultralight skin that reacts and responds to rider input as if it's alive.
Each panel is oriented to allow horizontal elasticity, whilst locking up the vertical stretch. Core stability is maintained under load to maximise wind range. Dynamic ex with instant re ex creates a spring that can be loaded up for explosive release. Lock and load. The S-1 Pro is a four batten layout in all sizes. Moderate back hand pressure provides the juice to power into any manoeuvre. Large mono lm window for maximum visibility.
Ultimate performance. Used by Jaeger Stone, the S-1 Pro has been developed to power up his style; / High stability to maintain pro le integrity under extreme conditions.
/ Optimised window for pinpoint precision when attacking the lip.
/ Power on tap for turbo boost jumps and wave destruction.

Nice looking sail. Love Severne and used a few of their sails but $1.5K for a wave sail... hmm
I can buy a good board and 2 sails for that price. Personally, the longer I'm in the sport the more I realize that it's more about conditions and the spot.

if you cant afford it dont try it, it will blow your mind, and spoil your just regular sails

Do the new ones weigh the same?

i dont have a 2020 yet, im referring to earlier years sails, I expect this welded one will be even better than those, and hopefully more durable also

I heard from a person who builds sails that it's impossible to laminate carbon fiber in the form of X-ply sail. That it simply doesn't wet well by current glues. Wonder if Severne is trying to sort that out hence no updated info on their site.

That is total nonsense... the new materials are tested for quite a long time and are holding up very well, no problems there.
I know there have just been a small amount of new S1 Pro's 2020 sails being produced and delivered to a few custommers last week.
I also know that some of these guys have taken those sails with them to South Africa and are absolutly STOCKED about the performance of the new sails.

The new pro S1 sails look good but the only ones i've seen here in Cape Town look like prototypes - with no logos.
The seaming is also not as shown in the diagram posted earlier in this thread.
I'm guessing this is still a work in progress.

Meanwhile, I continue to use my S1 pro 4.4 2019 which is amazing,

FUSED SEAMS
ULTRASONICALLY WELDED SEAMS. Each carbon segment is ultrasonically welded in place. This has multiple advantages over traditional sewing techniques; / STRONGER: Full seam adhesion plus the benefit of not puncturing the films with needle holes.
/ LIGHTER: Removal of outer seam tapes and thread.
/ ACCURATE: No seam shrinkage from outer tapes, or thread tension.




LOAD PATH FRAME
PANEL LAYOUT ALIGNED TO LOAD PATHS. Each panel is strategically placed to align with the sails specific loads, on all sizes.
This has multiple advantages over aesthetic panel layouts; / LIGHTER: Aligning fibre accurately with the loads in the sail allows thinner films and much lighter sails.
/ STRONGER: High density of Dyneema and carbon in specific areas.
/ LIGHTNING RESPONSE: Carbon fibre transfers load instantly, without lag due to stretch. 1. PRIMARY LOADS
Primary loads run vertically between head and tack. Downhaul tension transfers directly through the warp oriented carbon.
2. FOOT LOADS.
Foot tensions transfer between the tack and the clew. High density fibreadds impact strength in this area.
3. LEECH LOADS
Leech loads run vertically up the leech, with dynamic loads tensioning the carbon and then springing back for explosive performance.
4. BODY LOADS
Body tension is transferred out of the head and clew.

Look into my eyes, not around the eyes, but into my eyes --- and you are under.

When I click my fingers you will wake up and you will remember that Severne is Good.

Looking forward to hearing reviews... or test/comparison, between S1pro 2019 Vs S1 pro 2020 .

"welded" ... that is just melting some plastic together, right?

Remember the Oceanic sails from **many** years gone by? My wife still sails her no-cam 5.0 because it is so light. My son likes the 6.8 2-cam.

Dave Russell of Rushwind fame, made them. They used glue and Kevlar instead of today's carbon. Bulletproof, but over a **long** time they start to delam around the edges. Contact cement is useful for that. The only part of those that was stitched was the luff sleeve.

Surviving Oceanics are still being sailed in the Gorge.
