STRUT YOUR STUFF

Light, compact, and easy to use, the STRIKE CWC V3 is the quintessential light-wind weapon.

Our 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 of weight. 

• Its perfect balance facilitates the creation of the apparent wind while increasing its high-end capacities. 

• New HITEX and NANO for increased durability. 

 

HITEX - Strength in every thread.

” A major material change in our wings is not to be taken lightly. Adding any new material with a fancy name is not helpful if it is not well suited to our needs.

That’s why we took the time to have our own exclusive fabric made. “

Introducing HITEX, a brand new high-tenacity polyester engineered by F-ONE.
Available in 158g and 178g, this fabric exclusive to F-ONE offers great resistance to elongation and therefore greater durability and performance.

Moving away from kite fabrics

The efforts on a kite and on a wing are completely different.
Here, we are talking about the structure of our products. Even if the canopy is the surface that receives the wind, the leading edge and the struts of a kite or a wing make up the main structure and therefore guarantee their qualities in flight.

 

HITEX - The High Tenacity Polyester 1

 

Available in 158g and 178g, this fabric exclusive to F-ONE offers great resistance to elongation and therefore greater durability and performance.

After working with our fabric manufacturer partners for a long time, F-One decided to use High Tenacity Polyester, a technical material offering high resistance to elongation and superior durability

The use of this high-tenacity fibre, in weights perfectly adapted to our sport and our designs, has allowed us to reduce the diameter of the leading edge and to limit the use of additional reinforcements. This results in improved aerodynamics and reduced weight, offering better performances.

The HITEX is coated with PLASMA, an innovation exclusive to our supplier, which guarantees increased durability of the fabric. Coupled with high-tenacity polyester fibres, it makes HITEX the most durable material on the market. The stresses applied to the fabric of a kite and that of a wing are very different. The ideal fabric for a wing has increased pressure resistance, limited deformation, and outstanding durability

F-One wings stay in good shape much longer and thus retain their original design and performance over time.

 

On a kite, the “C” shape and the bridles spread over the whole span ensure the perfect distribution of tensions. It’s not the same for a wing.

Held by two central handles, its two sides tend to deform under wind pressure.

This is why the leading edge of a 5m² kite is between 10-15cm in diameter, while the leading edge of a wing with the same surface is about twice as big.

 

HITEX - The High Tenacity Polyester 2

The larger the diameter of the leading edge, the larger the surface area of the fabric.
The air pressure in a volume is applied to the cm², under the formula:
pressure (Pa) = Force (N) / Surface (m²).
With the same inflation, the material of the leading edge of a wing receives a much higher pressure than that of a kite.
Moreover, in normal use, a wing is more often left flapping, dragged on abrasive surfaces, soaked in salt water, etc.

 

HANDLES 

To further improve and optimize the rider’s control of the wing, we have rigidified our handles while keeping our original, lighter construction that doesn’t include any hard parts that could damage your wing, ding your board, or hitting yourself. Our grippy, ergonomic, and comfortable handles allow for some flexibility so your wrist is always in line with your arm. 

This also gave us the opportunity to design the strut just as we liked. The front of it goes straight down away on your front hand before going up into the wing’s profile near your backhand. This leads to a more natural position to sheet in. 

 

THE LIGHT WIND REVOLUTION 

Light wind riding has never been so effective. Our Compact Wing Concept (CWC) patent allows adding more surface into a given wingspan without compromising lightness and performance. The two extra struts increase the wing’s surface without increasing the leading edge’s length and diameter. 

This specific geometry brings great power with ease of use and therefore a light feel with less wingspan. The compact outline makes it easy to obtain an incredible start when planning 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, and with wingtips naturally staying away from the surface of the water. 

Finally, the already impressive high range of this wing has been improved so you can absorb the 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 bigger surfaces, we have 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. 

Strut your stuff with the STRIKE CWC V3, a complete game changer for your light wind days. 

 

WING DESIGN 

Through Sail Engineering, we have 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 from the innovative radial center panels, which are mapped to accurately follow every load trajectory. A vertical panel controls the trailing edge. Small radial cuts are also 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. 

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 our staggered seams, the fabric and its seams work better to keep 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, our innovative Load Diffuser made of overlapping panels of hard Mylar and Dacron further helps maintain the profile sleek and efficient, leading to the ultimate stability, performance, and longevity. 

Every reinforcement on this wing has been reviewed to ensure durability and to save weight.
