Strike CWC V3
€1399,00 – €1599,00
Light, compact, and easy to use, the STRIKE CWC V3 is the quintessential light-wind weapon. F-one’s patented 3-strut wing has proven to be the ideal concept for a successful large surface wing, and the STRIKE CWC has dominated light-wind wing foiling since its appearance on the market. Featuring a new and revolutionary design as well as F-ONE’s latest technologies and materials, this CWC V3 will let you show off your wing foiling skills in full confidence on any light wind day.
• Patented compact design provides maximum power with impressive maneuverability.
• Smaller wingspan brings efficient pumping and maintains the wingtips away from the surface of the water.
• A small diameter center strut allows these large surfaces to keep a record weight.
• Its perfect balance facilitates the creation of apparent wind, while increasing its high end capacities.
• New HITEX and NANO for increased durability.
Strike CWC V3
For this CWC V3, F-one has worked on three areas: the materials, the placement of these materials, and the design to improve performance and durability.
The leading edge and central strut of the STRIKE CWC V3 are made of HITEX 158g and 178g. This brand-new high tenacity polyester exclusive to F-ONE offers great resistance to elongation, therefore enhancing durability and performance.
The central strut is thinner in diameter thanks to the HITEX 158g and its independent valve that allows for better control of pressure. Its longitudinal reinforcements help maintain its shape and resistance.
The two 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 different tensions, high pressures, and weight distribution in this area.
From the outset, F-one has maintained a thin leading edge diameter at the wingtips, bringing agility, comfort, glide, lightness, and reduced inertia.
Finally, the CWC V3 features the new NANO canopy. This innovative micro ripstop polyester in 55g is used on the entire canopy of the wing. It benefits from a NANO coating and a Plasma treatment process that brings increased rigidity, resistance to elongation and tears, and durability. With optimized materials and design, this wing remains light and comfortable.
Through Sail Engineering, F-one has 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 CWC V3 is precisely laid to carry a specific load. The front of the wing combines horizontal panels separated by a vertical seam with innovative radial center panels, which accurately follow every load trajectory. The trailing edge is controlled by a vertical panel. Small radial cuts are also implemented on the wingtips and on the back of the strut to spread tensions. Aligning the fiber exactly along the load paths means that stretch can be controlled to an unprecedented level on a wing.
Thanks to this precise load management, the wind range of the STRIKE CWC is extended, and the range of wind strengths where the wing feels perfect is greater than ever before.
With staggered seams, the fabric and its seams work better to maintain a smooth and efficient profile, and the flying shape of the wing never deforms under load. The control of the profile is ideal, and its stability is excellent, allowing everyone 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, F-one’s innovative Load Diffuser, made of overlapping panels of hard Mylar and Dacron, further helps maintain the profile sleek and efficient, leading to ultimate stability, performance, and longevity.
Every reinforcement on this wing has been reviewed to ensure durability and save weight.
To further improve and optimize the rider’s control of the wing, F-one has rigidified the handles while retaining the original, lighter construction that doesn’t include any hard parts that could damage the wing, ding the board, or cause injury. The grippy, ergonomic, and comfortable handles allow for some flexibility, so the wrist is always in line with the arm.
This change has also allowed F-one to design the strut to their preference. The front of it descends straight away on the front hand before rising into the wing’s profile near the back hand. This leads to a more natural position for sheeting in.
THE LIGHT WIND REVOLUTION
Light wind riding has never been so effective. F-one’s Compact Wing Concept (CWC) patent allows adding more surface area to a given wingspan without compromising lightness and performance. The two extra struts increase the wing’s surface area without increasing the leading edge’s length and diameter.
This specific geometry brings great power with ease of use, resulting in a light feel with less wingspan. The compact outline makes it easy to achieve an incredible start when planing and pumping. Highly maneuverable and easy to flip around when on the water, the CWC V3 lets you ride effortlessly, making you feel like you’re using a 5m² wing, with wingtips naturally staying away from the water’s surface.
Finally, the already impressive high range of this wing has been improved, enabling you to absorb gusts if the wind picks up.
The STRIKE CWC V3 is available in four sizes, ranging from 6 to 9m². With this design perfectly adapted to larger surfaces, F-one has added the 9m² to the range this year. This size will allow riders of a bigger stature to make the most out of their light wind sessions.
Experience the revolution with the STRIKE CWC V3, a complete game changer for your light wind days.
