- 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
The F-ONE STRIKE V4 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.
The team has 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 F-ONE STRIKE V4 is much more than a new model; it’s a perfect blend of performance, a lightweight feel and smooth traction.
The design of the STRIKE has been entirely revised. The central strut is now completely straight, which allows you 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. The innovative Load Diffuser is reduced for weight gain, especially during freefly.
They’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.
The new STRIKE is fitted with a new interchangeable handle system. Soft, hybrid or rigid handles, you now get to customize handles at your preference.
