STRIKE V4

 

Thanks to its optimized design and Sail Engineering, the STRIKE is a masterpiece of aerodynamism. This fourth version of our iconic wing has been refined to guarantee new sensations, and hence unforgettable, high-performance sessions.

 

  • Optimized design for unprecedented performance
  • HITEX and TECHNOFORCE materials for increased durability
  • Perfect control of the profile and deformations to guarantee comfort throughout the entire wind range
  • Unmatched speed and power delivery“Going Forward” feeling
  • Impressive pop, hangtime, and upwind performances
  • Intuitive pumping for easy planing starts
  • Equipped with our new interchangeable handle system

 

Our new STRIKE features once more a super intuitive pumping with a certain flexibility that makes it easy to start planing without having to expend a lot of energy or learn a special technique. This STRIKE responds to pumping with immediate power.

 

We've worked on the wing's balance and aerodynamics to ensure exceptional and superior performance, while maintaining control and precision. This new STRIKE offers an unrivalled smoothness of traction that makes it possible to ride effortlessly, as if using a smaller, very light wing.

 

The STRIKE's control throughout the wind range is impressive, allowing you to easily handle gusts. For those who love speed, the wing provides a new "Going Forward” feeling that unlocks thanks to an impressive forward traction delivering fantastic horizontal acceleration. In the low end, it never seems to suffer from air holes or heading winds, maintaining a constant glide and exceptional upwind abilities.

 

Thanks to its stiffness, accelerations, and massive pop and hangtime, the STRIKE will also have you hooked on freestyle. For your rotations, the wing turns easily on its own, allowing you to land all your tricks and try out new ones.

 

This STRIKE is much more than a new model; it's a perfect blend of performance, a lightweight feel and smooth traction.

 

Design:

The design of the STRIKE has been entirely revised. The central strut is now completely straight, which allows us to better control its deformation and possible twisting, while reducing drag. As a result, the infill is a bit lower and deforms less, and we've extended it almost all the way to the back. Our innovative Load Diffuser is reduced for weight gain, especially during freefly.

 

We've also added dihedral angle to improve stability and keep the wingtips out of the water when pumping and riding. The new leading and trailing edge tensions as well as a refined radial cut help keep the profile smooth and stable for incredible performance and control.

 

The accurate panel layout, precise load management and staggered seams continue to bring exceptional control of the profile, especially in the high end. The use of HITEX on the inflatable structure and TECHNOFORCETM/D2 on the canopy offer great resistance to elongation and therefore greater durability and performances. The materials are also perfectly distributed to account for the different tensions, high pressures, and weight distribution in each specific area.

 

Small radial cuts are implemented on the wingtips and on the back of the strut to spread tensions. Aligning the fibre exactly along the load paths means that stretch can be controlled to a never-before-seen level on a wing. Located on the back of the strut, our Load Diffuser made of overlapping panels of hard Mylar and Dacron further helps maintaining the profile sleek and efficient, leading to the ultimate stability, performances, and longevity.

 

Thanks to this Sail Engineering and design work, the new STRIKE is an ideal compromise of performance, control, and smoothness. The wing feels stiff enough for any rider to perform and stay in control, but remains at the same time very progressive, offering a gentle and swift forward traction.

 

Handles:

The new STRIKE is fitted with our new interchangeable handle system. Soft, hybrid or rigid handles, you now get to customize handles at your preference.

  • PRESENTATION

    For this SWING V3, we have worked on its lightweight feel and balance to allow us to orient its program towards surfing and downwind. We mainly focused on three areas: the materials, the placement of these materials and the design to improve control and durability. 

    MATERIALS 

    The airframe of the SWING V3 is made of HITEX 158g and 178g. This brand-new high tenacity polyester exclusive to F-ONE offers great resistance to elongation and therefore greater durability and performances. 

    The central strut is thinner in diameter thanks to the HITEX 158g and its independent valve that allows for a better control of its pressure. Its longitudinal reinforcements also help control its shape and resistance. 

    The three central segments of the leading edge on each side of the strut are made of HITEX 178g, while the remaining segments are in 158g. Both materials are perfectly distributed to account for the different tensions, high pressures, and weight distribution in this area. 

    Since the beginning, we have also kept a thin leading edge diameter at the wingtips, bringing agility, comfort and glide, but also lightness and less inertia. 

    The SWING V3 features our new NANO canopy. This innovative micro ripstop polyester in 55g is used on the entire canopy of the wing, except on the trailing edge. It benefits from a NANO coating and a Plasma treatment process that brings an increased rigidity, resistance to elongation and tears, and durability. 

    Finally, the trailing edge of the SWING V3 is made of our new HT80, a woven double ripstop high tenacity polyester. This material will bring significantly increased tear resistance and strength to the area, especially in the waves when flagging the wing. 

    WING DESIGN 

    Through Sail Engineering, we have conceived a completely new design; everything has been precisely thought-out to adapt the wing’s shape to the tensions and new materials. 

    Every panel on the SWING V3 is precisely laid to carry a specific load. The front of the wing combines horizontal panels separated by a vertical seam from the innovative radial center panels, which are mapped to accurately follow every load trajectory. The trailing edge is controlled by a vertical panel in 80g. Small radial cuts are also implemented on the wingtips and on the back of the strut to spread tensions. Aligning the fibre exactly along the load paths means that stretch can be controlled to a never-before-seen level on a wing. 

    With our staggered seams, the fabric and its seams work better to keep a smooth and efficient profile and the flying shape of the wing never deforms under load. The control of the profile is ideal, especially in the high end where stability is superb to ride fully balanced on both arms and in total comfort. 

    The new trailing edge tensions and radial cuts have brought incredible performance and control. Located on the back of the strut, our innovative Load Diffuser made of overlapping panels of hard Mylar and Dacron further helps maintaining the profile sleek and efficient, leading to the ultimate stability, performances, and longevity. 

    Every reinforcement on this wing has been reviewed to ensure durability and to save weight. 

    HANDLES 

    To further improve and optimize the rider’s control of the wing, we have rigidified our handles while keeping our original, lighter construction that doesn’t include any hard parts that could damage your wing, ding your board, or hit yourself. Our grippy, ergonomic and comfortable handles allow for some flexibility so your wrist is always in line with your arm. 

    This also gave us the opportunity to design the strut just as we liked. The front of it goes down straight away on your front hand before going up into the wing’s profile near your back hand. This leads to a more natural position to sheet in. 

    EXCEL IN THE WAVES 

    The SWING V3 is virtually a brand-new wing and an improvement of the V2 in all areas. With optimized materials and design, this wing is super stable, light, comfortable and balanced, all while maintaining a certain smoothness in its traction. 

    The SWING V3 has a reduced wingspan to make it easy to maneuver and surf; any change of direction is much smoother. You can concentrate on your trajectories, the waves, and controlling your foil without needing to check if the wingtips are touching the water. It holds perfectly in the air in a neutral position when turning in the waves and flies itself flawlessly, leaving you free to use the power of the wave with little resistance. Surfing or downwinding will undoubtedly bring sheer joy. 

    Its compactness coupled with the new, more powerful profile give it an excellent planing start with an easy pumping. This will allow every rider, regardless of their level, to use a smaller surface area for even more maneuverability. Its traction will also enable you to go for a smaller board for even more freedom in your surfing. 

    The SWING will easily pick up speed but with a good angle, before being easily forgotten about in freefly. It generates power immediately, and this instant power can turn out to be crucial when kicking out of a wave or waterstarting to safely get to the next set. Finally, this wing is also perfect for attempting and succeeding in all maneuvers such as jibes and turns, 360, etc. 

    Overall, wing foiling with a SWING V3 is exceptionally intuitive. Beginners and experienced riders alike will enjoy its gentle feel and ease-of-use. Thanks to its wide wind range, riding in both the high and low end has never been so fun, and drawing dreamy lines has never been so easy.
