Armstrong HS1550 Front wing
Armstrong HS1550 Front Wing
The HS1550 (high speed) is the do it all combination for all round foil riding, amazing range in the surf, easy with a kite, SUP or Windsurf. Just like the 1600, only with a higher top speed and more mellow acceleration.
Surf: Ideal surf wing for ripping up waves.
Kiteboarding: Light wind riding.
SUP: Lighter riders or bigger surf.
Wake: Versatile towing and wake foiling.
Windsurf: All riders in moderate winds.
Wing area: 1550cm2
We recommend the setup below, but much depends on rider weight and riding style.
See our Foil chart for assistance.
- The main wings are shaped for maximum stability and predictability at all speeds.
- The foil sections have been carefully designed by one of the world’s foremost sport wing designers.
- Continuous testing and refinement helped us find a combination of platform, leading and trailing edge sweep and the right amount of anhedral curve that delivers super smooth flow, giving a more connected surf like feeling while on the fly.
- Construction is based around a high-density foam core which is encapsulated in Aramid cloth before being wrapped with 100% High Modulus Carbon.
All Foil kits and separate parts include a protective cover.
