SOLID… BALANCED… POWERFUL!
The summer Wing Foiling season in New Zealand was incredible on both the West and East coasts. Wind, epic swells and empty waves for carving up and connecting, has seen Armie riding, testing and pushing himself in the search to improve the A-Wing.
Now includes the Power Link Control Bar
Powerful… The A-Wing V2’s stiff airframe reduces sail deformation when highly powered, jumping or pumping the wing for power in light winds. The thick leading edge is not only for structural stability it also defines the nose radius of the aerofoil section which is responsible for generating the power of the wing in flight!
Balanced…Across a wide range of conditions, the A-Wing V2 is well balanced. The load distribution between the front and rear hand, make it comfortable and less physically fatiguing for long sessions. When riding waves or swells the V2 floats effortlessly on the font handle and feels more maneuvrable when tacking, gibing or tricking around!
Solid… The solid airframe of the A-Wing is the second ingredient to power and performance. Features…
- Redefined sail tension and seams, improving the loaded section airfoil shape.
- Elongated windows plus added rear window for improved visibility.
- New X-ply power panel laminate added to canopy in Central load zone.
- Aramid reinforcements for protection while reducing weight over V1
- New improved handle construction and attachments for direct feel and control.
- New leash lock webbing strap for load distribution when on leash or being rumbled by waves.
INNOVATION AND THOUGHTFUL DESIGN ARE AT OUR HEART, THE NEW POWERLINK CONTROL BAR IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF OUR DEDICATION TO THE DESIGN ETHOS.
During the testing of the A-Wing, Armie developed the Powerlink Control Bar with the goal of increasing the handling and range of the A-Wing. Linking the middle handles allows for easy hand transfers, enhanced wing control during transitions and for wave riding.
It improves light wind power, with both hands on the bar it sets the wing higher and further from body turbulence, which improves low-end grunt. It also adds to upper-end wind range by allowing your rear hand to move forward for the optimal control position in powered conditions.
Although the Power Control Bar has been developed primarily for the A-Wing, as an added bonus it can also easily be fitted to many other brands wings. Power link control Bar length is 520mm (Please check the length of other brand fitting points)
Package… The A-Wing comes complete with carry bag, leash, Power Link Control Bar and in five optimal sizes, 2.5m/3.5m/4.5m/5.5m and 6.5m Please select the A-Wing size and pump option required.
