Cypher Pro

Freestyle & Foil 4 Batten

Pop. If the collaboration with Antoine Albert could be summarized into one word, this would be it. The all new Cypher Pro. Freestyle windsurfing at its absolute best and most uncompromising. An extra premium has been placed on the Cypher Pro’s light weight build.

Massive lift and ease of rotation are the drivers of progressive freestyle maneuvers. And they also drive the Cypher Pro, project baby and sail of choice for not just Antoine Albert but also freestyle team riders Yarden Meir, Jay Lee and Rob Warwick.

In fact, the vision behind the name Cypher highlights the nature of ideas coming together between individuals. Resulting in a sail made for, but not limited to Freestyle.

The uncompromising nature of this sail has led to its versatility spanning from technical trick style windsurfing, to foil windsurfing and even some waveriding, all benefiting from the sheer endless lift and lightness of this model.

To make the lightest sail period, you have to shave off weight wherever possible, and the Cypher Pro offers the perfect platform to push this idea forward.
Ultra Lightweight body panels in Monofilm, Bi-Ply and Scrim, minimalized components, dedicated “lifting” draft profile, silky quiet rotation, all these details contribute to the feeling levitation of its pure freestyle design.

The new Cypher Pro features refined outlines with shorter boom lengths. This makes rotational and duck tricks easier. More shape – forward and higher in the profile – give yet more lift. Refined foot batten shapes ease batten rotation.

Sizes go down to 2.8 and up to 5.9, leaving no wishes unfulfilled.

The new Goya Windsurfing sails now come packed in recycled cardboard and paper tape only. No redundant plastic bags. Your sail bag is that protective bag, keeping your planet, our planet, one step cleaner. We figured it’s a worthy trade off, as our love for windsurfing and the planet only grows.

Pro Construction, Monofilm window, Bi-Ply and Scrim panels.

Available in 2,8, 3,1, 3,4, 3,8, 4,2, 4,4, 4,8, 5,1, 5,4, 5,6, 5,9 square meters.

Available in Fluo Yellow & Pink.

Du pop. C’est le mot qui résume en un mot la collaboration avec Antoine Albert. La toute nouvelle Cypher Pro. Le windsurf freestyle à son apogée et sans compromis. Une attention spéciale a été placée sur la légèreté de la Cypher Pro.

Lift massif et facilité de rotation pour toutes les manœuvres de freestyle. C’est ce qui fait de la Cypher Pro la voile de prédilection d’Antoine Albert, mais aussi de nos autres riders freestyle Yarden Meir, Jay Lee et Rob Warwick.

La vision derrière le nom Cypher tire son origine de la fusion d’idées entre plusieurs individus, se traduisant en une voile faite pour le freestyle, mais pas seulement.

Sa polyvalence fait de cette voile un produit sans compromis. Du windsurf technique trick style, au Windfoil en passant par le Waveriding, toutes disciplines bénéficiant du pur lift et de la légèreté de ce modèle.

Pour fabriquer la voile la plus légère qu’il soit, il faut enlever du poids autant que possible, et la Cypher Pro offre la plateforme parfaite pour appliquer cette idée.
Des panneaux ultra légers en Monofilm, Bi-Ply et Scrim, un minimum d’éléments, un profil de voile axé sur le lift, de gracieuses rotations, tous ces détails contribuent à la sensation de lévitation de cette voile pure freestyle.

La nouvelle Cypher Pro présente un outline affiné avec une longueur de wish réduite. Cela facilite les rotations et les passages à contre en duck. Plus de creux vers l’avant et un profil plus haut, ce qui donne plus de lift. Le profil au niveau de la latte du bas a été ajusté, facilitant la rotation de celle-ci autour du mât.

Les tailles vont de 2.8 jusqu’à 5,9 afin de répondre à tous les besoins.

Construction Pro, Fenêtre Monofilm, Panneaux Bi-Ply & Scrim.

Disponible en 2,8, 3,1, 3,4, 3,8, 4,2, 4,4, 4,8, 5,1, 5,4, 5,6, 5,9 mètres carrés.

Disponible en Jaune Fluo & Rose.

Cypher Pro vs. Fringe Pro

Cypher with 4 battens brings more stability to the sail, compared to Fringe’s 3, expanding the range and control particularly in stronger wind, while weights between comparable sizes of those 2 models are nearly identical at Fringe 3.7 = 2.69 kg and Cypher 3.8 = 2.68 kg.

Cypher power is “lifiting”. “Up” force compared to “neutral”. This lifting power makes the sail go well for both freestyle tricks and also foiling, where lift helps get you up out of the water and on foil more quickly. A lifting power delivery also works well for any rider in lighter wind, to help initiate early planing and easy handling.

Fringe power is “neutral” to “slightly down”. This power delivery really helps keep the rider settled in wave sailing where you really want to focus on driving your rail through turns without being lifted or digging the nose in too much. Fringe really allows you to feel the board on the water without too much input from the sail. Nevertheless, Fringe also goes well for foiling, because of its neutral lift, which makes the ride very predictable.

For maneuver oriented windsurf foiling, we recommend moving toward Cypher, compared to Fringe.

Cypher Pro vs. Banzai Pro

The Cypher Pro is a lighter build, since Freestyle sails require slightly less durability overall.

Its power is higher up in the sail, more “lifting” than the Banzai Pro, while this lifting power is also in part a result of the lighter weight.

The Cypher Pro would work well in the waves in a situation where low end power is most needed, particularly in light wind, when the sail is rigged full and paired with a floaty board.

Hi Ken,

Just wanted to let you know that I got to use the new Cypher 5.9 sail twice while foiling last week! Love it!?

It is a great light wind sail for foiling. Was using it in 8-12k winds with my big Maliko 280 and M-200 GoFoil wings. Love the smooth strong power it generates to get you up on foil, as well as its lightness and easy jibing / maneuvering characteristics. Plus it seems to de-power well to allow down-swell and down wind foiling on wave energy alone. I am really looking forward to more sessions on it and using it for light wind WWF on the ocean. Will likely get a Cypher 4.8 next season!

Thanks again for the recommendation to get the Cypher and enjoy the fall winds there.
