Tucker reviews the 2024 F-One Strike CWC V4 Aluula Wing

Read the full review on the blog.

Review Summary:

Not all large wings are created equal. Some are very cumbersome or don't have the extra power you want for light days. Some even feel full size in terms of handling and wingspan, but pull like a smaller wing. The Strike CWC rides every bit as powerfully as its posted size, if not a bit more because of the extra grunt and ease of pumping. We're excited to get these wings in your hands once stock arrives because we think you'll love them as well


CWC Aluula Lightwind Wing

F-One's Compact Wing Concept (CWC) patent continues to prove its effectiveness for large wing surfaces in light winds. This new STRIKE CWC, the fruit of the developments made on thier fourth STRIKE, offers ever more efficient planing and pumping. In flight, its perfect balance and unique forward traction ensure exceptional glide. The ALUULA struts reduce the inertia of every maneuver and enhance the feeling of lightness when riding.

  • Optimized design for perfect balance in flight and new forward traction
  • ALUULA on all three struts for greater lightness, strength, and performance
  • HITEX and TECHNOFORCE for increased durability
  • Intuitive pumping for easy planing starts
  • Equipped with F-One's new interchangeable handle system
  • The quintessential light-wind weapon

Materials:

The leading edge of this fourth STRIKE CWC remains in HITEX 158g and 178g. This high tenacity polyester exclusive to F-ONE offers great resistance to elongation and therefore greater durability and performances. Both HITEX weights are perfectly distributed to account for the different tensions, high pressures, and weight distribution in this area. The innovation of this wing lies in the strategic placement of ALUULA on its three struts. Thanks to the mechanical properties of this light and resistant material, the central strut is now thinner. This results in less drag and a noticeable reduction in weight, which also favors freefly and handling during downwinders or jibes. Finally, the ALUULA struts reduce inertia during maneuvers, transitions, and pumping.

Guaranteeing performance and durability, our thicker TECHNOFORCETM/D2 in 66g has been placed on the trailing edge where tensions are important and resistance essential. The rest of the wing’s canopy is in TECHNOFORCETM/D2 in 52g.

Design:

The central strut of the CWC is now completely straight, which allows us 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. Our innovative Load Diffuser is reduced for weight gain, especially during freefly. We’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 help keep the profile smooth and stable for incredible performance and control.

The wing’s body features a horizontal cut to optimize the weight of the seams on these large-surface, light-wind wings. The trailing edge features a vertical cut in 66g for ideal traction control. A small radial cut is implemented on the back of the strut to spread tensions. Finally, the Load Diffuser further helps maintain the profile sleek and efficient, leading to the ultimate stability, performances, and longevity. The accurate panel layout, precise load management and staggered seams continue to bring exceptional control of the profile. The materials are also perfectly distributed to account for the different tensions, high pressures, and weight distribution in each specific area.

Handles:

The new CWC is fitted with our new interchangeable handle system. Soft, hybrid or rigid handles, you now get to customize handles at your preference.
