Тимрайдер Magic Marine НИКОЛАС ХЕЙНЕР (NICHOLAS HEINER) - один из топовых яхтсменов, использующий исключительно нашу амуницию и продвигающий бренд Magic Marine. 


С первого же момента, когда Николас вступил на борт яхты, он старался ходить с максимальной скоростью. Для своего первого Оптимиста он сделал спинакер "потому что у быстрых лодок он есть". После Оптимиста было несколько классов яхт, пока в 2009 Николас не пришел к Лазер Стандарт "потому что здесь лучшие соревнования".
Его наивысшее достижение - чемпион мира на Лазер Стандарт в 2014. В 2016 Николас перешел в класс Финн, где в 2017 стал бронзовым призером чемпионата мира, и на котором он готовится к следующей олимпиаде.


Николас, находясь постоянно "под боком" у головного офиса Magic Marine, тестирует все новые модели одежды и аксессуаров и, пожалуй, больше чем кто-либо другой из тимрайдеров, влияет на облик того, что через год-два увидят яхтсмены на полках магазинов.

Tech Update - For the love of foiling

31/05/2017

With the 2017 collection we provide gear for all types of weather conditions, but what should you pick when the circumstances are constantly changing? Learn more about the best products in our monthly Tech Update!

TECH UPDATE MAY 2017 - IMPACT COLLECTION, FOR THE LOVE OF FOILING

The Magic Marine impact collection is specifically designed for the development of foiling in the sport of sailing, it creatively combines specialised impact foams, superior fabrics and construction techniques for ultimate and customisable protection and comfort. At the America's Cup and the Youth America's Cup but also on boats like the GC32, Moth and Foiling Nacra 17 good protection has become a basic need.

Lately World Sailing confirmed its support of the plan to release the first batch of 45 Foiling Nacras. The Europeans, the Worlds and the Aarhus test event will be raced in the new boats. Top teams, like our Olympic Champions Santiago Lange and Ceci Carranza Saroli have been sailing on the first Foiling Nacra 17 in order to provide the builders early feedback.

Cecilia Carranza Saroli talks about her first experience on the new Foiling Nacra17: "The difference I experienced between the Laser and the Catamaran when I changed class is more or less the same difference we feel changing from the Nacra 17 to the foiling Nacra. Maybe not so much in speed, but it's definitely more extreme. It's going to be a totally different sport and we really need to learn how to foil this boat."

"We sailed on the foiling Nacra for one week and were really lucky that we'd already received the new impact gear from Magic Marine. I didn't use a helmet during the 2016 Olympic campaign, but now I don't go out for a sailing session without it. I also love the impact Long John because it's really comfortable. I even use it for my Moth sailing sessions where I need to have really good mobility going from one side to the other in every tag and every gybe."

NIA FOAM FOR MAXIMUM PROTECTION
The Impact Pro Long John, Impact Pro Vest and Impact Pro Buoyancy Aid are to be combined to deliver optimal coverage for extreme sailing conditions. The construction used for maximum protection NIA FOAM. The foam with Nitrile Impact Absorption technology is specifically designed to absorb impact and reduce transfer through to the body.
The construction has been tested and developed alongside specialist team riders to produce the best protection. Through the clever panel layout of the NIA construction, it is able to flex in all directions maintaining movement and agility for the sailor. The type of foam used is dense and optimised to absorb the impact load applied.
Antoine Joubert, GC32 Team ENGIE:
"The item I like the best is the Impact Long John because I can use it on the GC32 and Flying Phantom. On both boats, the Long John protect me from the foil especially the scarf edge when the boat suddenly stops. The neoprene is really comfortable, 2mm thick is perfect, it always keeps us warm on these boats where we spend lot of energy.”

ABOUT THE MAGIC MARINE ELEMENT COLLECTION
The Magic Marine product development team has worked tirelessly to better understand the actual features, fit, materials and construction that contribute to 'perfect' foul weather gear. Amongst other features, a mid-height micro fleece lined neck, micro fleece lined pockets constructed into the panel layout to limit seams and a chunky YKK zipper with zipper covers is integrated in the jacket. The fabric reaches a waterproof level of 10,000 mm and a breathability level of 4000g/m2/24h.

The bright orange fabric that has been chosen ensures better color fastness. A sporty fit is achieved through smart panel layouts to allow for freedom of movement. Magic Marine traditional colours are used in the styling of the range to make a statement in the sailing community. This is all to offer sailors more comfort during sailing and to protect them from the elements.
Team Heiner Talent Rosalin Kuiper is trimmer and bowmen and loves her new gear: "We're super happy with our new Element sailing gear. We just finished our first offshore races during the North Sea Regatta and it was so nice to actually be relaxed and warm and use all your energy to focus on racing. The soft collar makes the jacket really comfortable because it's high and doesn't irritate the skin around my chin, it feels nice to be able to hide from the cold in your own comfy jacket."

"I love all the pockets for storing stuff! As bowman I always carry a leatherman and tape and it's nice to be able to put things away in secured pockets.”
