The F-ONE STRIKE V2 is much more than a wing. Keeping the V1’s incomparable ultra-light weight that is pleasant in all phases of flight. Stability is improved by respecting the profile and the wing’s centre of traction while in motion. The traction is constant and homogeneous. This improved in-flight stability allows you to keep better control of your foil and your trajectories, no matter your skill level.
The STRIKE V2 provides smooth and precise steering abilities and works for you thanks to the Adaptive Wing Design.
Improved tensions of the fabric and profile’s distribution plus a new panel orientation along the warp line offers a better control and extended durability by ideally adjusting the fabric in the right direction. The infill is kept to a minimum to ensure profile control without adding weight, and to maintain a good field of view.
The F-ONE STRIKE V2 will be inconspicuous during your free flying sessions so you can fully focus on your surfs or on the swell.
Wing foil sensations are beyond compare. The feeling of freedom you get from being the only connection between the wing and the foil is unique. It is thus essential to make the correct wing choice to enjoy the full experience.
Adaptive Wing Design
While the industry trends towards the “all-rigid”, the F-ONE team have developed the Adaptive Wing Design, a unique concept offering the perfect balance between performance and comfort.
It’s difficult and uncomfortable to handle a stiff, handheld wing in the high end, especially without a harness. A wing must be able to absorb that power, just like the mast bend or the opening of the leech in windsurfing or the depower in kitesurfing. The F-ONE STRIKE V2’s Adaptive Wing Design transforms every gust into positive energy. This new wing is designed to adapt through a controlled deformation that allows the preservation of a high-performance profile throughout the entire range of use.
To reach this result, they worked on the leading edge and modified the shape of the central strut. The cut is now segmented, allowing for an improved control of its curve and its deformations, also enhancing the wing’s twist.
The Adaptive Wing Design enables a perfect control of the traction. The wing adapts itself to the riding conditions while maintaining an unprecedented stability. It releases power when necessary and takes the shape it needs in any given wind without degrading the quality of the profile.
Standard materials like Dacron and Polyester are still perfectly suited for exploring the Adaptive Wing Design’s world, and both offer a huge range of design possibilities. Their experience and feedback received on the previous designs have led to better analysis of the structural and reinforcement needed for a wing. The STRIKE V2 is even more solid and durable.
Pre Loaded Canopy
From the beginning, F-ONE wings have had a unique canopy tension that can be compared to that of a harden up windsurfing rig. Their wings are therefore “pre-tensioned” and made to adapt. This ideal tension of the trailing edge when riding guarantees much better performances upwind and in light winds.
Centre of traction
Throughout the entire development process, F-ONE took great care of the centre of traction stability, so the power distribution is always balanced between both arms. The wing is stable and barely requires any adjustments from your front or back hand, thus offering maximum comfort.
F-ONE wings are quite literally at your fingertips. Right from the start, they picked handles with a small diameter and a rectangular shape, with flatter parts that fit right into your phalanges. You don’t have to firmly grasp the handles constantly.
They opted for softness instead of rigidity, so you always have the perfect angle between the wing and your arms. As the wing is already extremely stable, rigid handles were not necessary. And with the softer, lighter, more comfortable handles, you won’t hurt or exert yourself, nor damage the canopy while packing your gear.
One of the unmatched qualities of their wings is that they pull you forward rather than sideways. The traction of the STRIKE V2 has been improved particularly for strong winds: you only need to sheet out to feel the power decrease and the traction go forward. It offers great navigation comfort upwind and allows you to push the limits of the high end with less efforts. In the low end, the traction is steady and does not require any adjustments. Just sheet in and the wing works for you.
With its unparalleled upwind capabilities, the STRIKE V2 will increase your free flying time or help you win races. Its speed performance also allows you to jump higher and to benefit from an excellent lift for landings. The compact design, with less wingspan than the V1, offers more possibilities for tricks and a more comfortable navigation with your hands positioned lower.
Through its constant traction, control, lightweight and stability, this wing is perfect for freeriding no matter your skill level. Its power and pumping efficiency are its strengths to get planing and exploit the low end.
Expanded wind range and its advantages
F-ONE has worked extensively on the range of use of their wings to guarantee a great planing start and the possibility to ride in light wind. They want to push each size as far as possible in the high end to keep your riding flow in any conditions.
What are the benefits?
- A single wing is enough to give you a full range of use and comfort of navigation when the wind drops or picks up during your session.
- Gain more lift during jumps and enjoy smoother landings while keeping the same wing size in the high end.
- Start planing earlier, and thus reduce the volume and size of your board.
