F-One Strike CWC Light Wind Wing
6m - 7m - 8m
F-ONE brings another breakthrough design with the STRIKE CWC
and offers unique sensations in light wind conditions.
Nearly two years after releasing their first swing F-One
found the ultimate way to add surface to the wing without compromising
lightness and performance. The new patented Compact Wing Concept allows adding
more surface area into a given wingspan. They have added two struts to the
existing one offering the most compact shape on the market for the bigger
The first three strut wings are not just wings with two more
struts. It was challenging for F-One to control the twist of the two struts
and, therefore, the power and performance of this new wing. The
high-performance design they had in the rest of the STRIKE range and the
excellent control of the cloth tension was a necessary base from which to start
such an ambitious design program.
The two extra struts increase the wing's surface without
increasing the leading edge's length and diameter. Once F-One could fit a 6m
into a short 5m leading-edge, they were then able to build a 7m and 8m with the
The control of the leading edge's length offers more
rigidity in the canopy, and the trailing edge is completely controlled, adding
Because touching the water while riding is one of the issues
larger wings, they also worked on the profile of the
wingtips. They naturally stay away from the water surface. If they hit the
water, their design allows them to glide over and not stop you as it usually would.
The Design enables you to ride with your hands at a normal height and not with
your arms above your head.
This new geometry brings great power with ease of use and,
therefore, a super-light feel with less wingspan. The wing is more
maneuverable, easier to flip around when on the water. Pumping is super easy
and gets you planning in no time as the wingtips don't touch the water when you
bend your arms. This unique compactness allows a very comfortable ride with big
Light wind riding as you've never felt before!
