The fourth version of our SWING benefits from a refined design and inherits all the evolutions of the new,and fourth edition as well, of theSTRIKE. With its refined design, the fourth version of our SWING offers first-rate sensations while providing controlled speed to keep the foil under control no matter the conditions. This wing positions itself perfectly in our range between the new ORIGIN and the STRIKE. Thanks to our Sail Engineering work, the new SWING offersan excellent planing start with an easy pumpingthanks to its natural flexibility. This will allow every rider, regardless of their level, to use a smaller surface area for even more maneuverability.
The SWING continues to benefit from a compact design and a reduced wingspan, making it exceptionally easy to maneuver and surf. Your hand placement will be optimalas well, and never too high, throughout the session.
The SWING is always ready to glide into the slightest wave while remaining light and stable in freefly. 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 wavewith little resistance. It also generates power immediately, and this instant power can turn out to be crucial when kicking out of a wave or waterstarting to safely get out of the impact zone when needed. Offering efficient upwind riding, this fourth edition of the SWING allows you to enjoy long and effortless downwinders.
The SWING is more intuitive and comfortable than ever before, and remains super stable, light, and balanced, all while maintaining a certain smoothness in its traction. This fourth version is the ideal compromise, offering performance in total control and a certain flexibility. It also provides an excellent balance throughout the entire wind range. Beginners and experienced riders alike will enjoy its gentle feel and ease-of-use.
Design :Our fourth edition of the SWING benefits from all the design improvements of the latest STRIKE.
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.
The SWING's leading edge brings acertain amount of flexibility, but does not penalize control in the high end. The accurate panel layout, precise load management and staggered seams continue to bring exceptional control of the profile in the entire wind range.
The use of HITEX on the inflatable structure, as well as NANO and HT80 on the canopy offer great resistance to elongation and therefore greater durability and performances.
These materials are also perfectly distributed to account for the different tensions, high pressures, and weight distribution in each specific areain orderto make the SWING an astonishing surf and downwind wing.
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.
The SWING is fitted with our new interchangeable handle system: soft, hybrid or even rigid, the choice is yours.Wings come with soft handles pre-installed, but it is now possible for riders to customize handles at their preference.
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.
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.
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.
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.
