Norths lighter weight version of their Power Wave sail. The ME has less X-Ply material to make the sail lighter in the hands but the use of a  heavy grade of monofilm does not mean that the sail is 'weak'.. if you only sail south coast type waves and can avoid the shorebreak you should not need a super tough sail (Gwithian on the other hand..). The condition of this sail is good.
North say...

 With the HERO designer Kai Hopf achieved a big bang; all international tests continue to praise the World Cup 4-batten wave sail into the sky. The Hero is the favorite sail of superhero Victor Fernandez aiit fits perfectly with the current multi-fin boards and independently of the sailor's weight it always guarantees maximum performance. Despite a further draft back position it doesn’t become back handy, even when overpowered. Due to fine-tuning of all sizes the extremely wide wind range compared to conventional 4 batten sail is immediately noticeable.

The low weight makes for incredible handling, while rigging you can already imagine how light and soft the sail feels. The rotation is as smooth as silk, even with minimal outhaul tension.
On the water it immediately appears that your backhand is the throttle, just sheet in then the HERO HYBRID immediately builds up power, speeds up and gets you going. On the wave it becomes a discreet engine always ready to accelerate when needed. The top of the sail works very effectively to support the power, therefore you can safely choose a sail size smaller than with many other wave sails. This applies to almost any rider, regardless of their weight.
Kai Hopf developed the BALANCED.LUFF.LENGTH, a precisely balanced ratio of luff length to boom length. As short as possible for most radical throw-ability and as long as necessary to generate sufficient stability for maximum wind range.
Design, processing, shape and features such as the iBUMPER mast protector make the radical HERO HYBRID a perfect package to which the competition must be measured again. The HERO is exclusively designed for RDM masts due to its narrow sleeve and elastic characteristics. The smaller mast diameter perfectly matches this softer feeling sail and shorter luff.

Note. HERO M.E. 
Absolutely identical in design, the HERO M.E. differs only in the reduced amount of CROSS.YARN.LAMINATE, a standard protector and the missing SWITCH.BATTEN option. This price advantage we are happy to pass on.
