Light wind riding is one of the wingfoil’s challenges as we want to offer power and performances in the lightest conditions. We needed to rise to the challenge, understand the sport and its specificities in order to offer the appropriate response to the rider’s needs.
F-ONE presents its patent pending Compact Wing Concept and its Triple Strut design.
Discover our new wing design
Nearly two years after the release of our first SWING we have found the ultimate way to add surface to the wing without compromising lightness and performances.
The new COMPACT WING CONCEPT allows adding more surface into a given wingspan.
We have added 2 struts to the existing one offering the most compact shape on the market for the bigger sizes.
The two extra struts increase the wing’s surface without increasing the leading edge’s length.
The trailing edge is completely controlled offering a lot of rigidity in the canopy and a reduced aspect ratio.
As we have been able to keep the 5m’s span, we have been able to keep the same leading edge’s diameter and offer thinner wingtips for less weight and more maneuverability.
What’s new ?
COMPACT WING CONCEPT
The patent pending Compact Wing Concept is a F-ONE innovation.
This new design offer a compact shape easy to handle and offer amazing light wind riding sensations without compromises.
This unique wing geometry with its two additional struts allow adding more surface into a given wingspan.
The main advantages
The wide surface of the wing makes you enjoy the ligthest winds.
Pumping is super easy and gets you planning in no time.
The reduced span makes the wing very manoeuvrable considering its wide surface.
It is also easy to flip around when on the water.
The additional struts add a curve in the wingtip. They naturally avoid the water even when being your arms.
In the case the wing touches the water, the tips just glides and stop you from falling.
The CWC in the line
The Compact Wing Concept has been added to the STRIKE’s range offering 3 new sizes.
6.0 m, 7.0 m and 8.0 m.
The CWC in action
The event’s light conditions have made it pretty tough for most of the competitors. Titouan Galea wins the finals with the latest 6m CWC prototype allowing him to ride at ease in under 10 knots.
