Description

GoFoil GT Front Wing

Sizes: 750 / 1050 / 1250 / 1400 / 1770 / 2200 / 2600

The "GT" stands for "Go To." The GoFoil GT Series is a dramatically responsive, controlled and smooth performance foil. The GT has superior pitch control, which is the up and down movement you feel when riding. Controlling your pitch helps you go faster with more confidence. The series is so responsive in the turns that you can get the wing tips out of the water and recover with more ease, reducing over-foiling.

The GTs pump extremely well with solid initial lift and great low end. The low-end performance of the GT allows you to glide longer without dropping off foil.

This series has a broad range that has low end and speed which allows you to ride a smaller foil and get the same performance.

Tucker's Thoughts

"The biggest improvement in my opinion is the ability to breach the wingtips without ventilating the foil. Most foils can breach but it slows you down and makes a lot of turbulence. The stepped foil section sheds that ventilation before it travels down so it feels really fast and predictable. That makes them incredibly user friendly in hard turns. It also helps prevent over-foiling and increases efficiency so that's a triple bonus.

Looking at the new wings on paper I was sure I was going to like the RS best but after riding them a bit I think the GT is the winner for me. It's really fast and glidey but also incredibly surfy and maneuverable since the wingspan is a bit more compact. The RS are crazy fast and glide well but that wingspan affects the kind of turns you can do by adding roll stability and more propensity to breaching. If I was going to ride those a lot I'd want a 36.5" or longer mast."

GoFoil Steps System

You will notice that the new EZ, GT, and RS front foil models have "Steps". These Steps are located out towards the tips. The steps help to stabilize the wings in respect to Wingtip Vortices issues that affect all airplanes and hydrofoils at their wingtips. Wingtip Vortices are circular patterns that spin off the tips of wings causing drag and instability. The new Steps help to minimize Wingtip problems that create drag and instability.

Benefits Of The New Steps System

  1. The Steps give the hydrofoil a more positive feeling through the water which leads to better pitch control. Pitch control means that you have better control with the up and down movement of the hydrofoil through the water. Better pitch control helps you go faster with confidence.
  2. The Steps create less drag by disrupting the Wing Vortices.
  3. The angled Steps help with being able to initiate turns and redirect the hydrofoil. This means you can turn easier and sharper!
  4. The Steps helps to stop over-foiling. This is accomplished by disrupting air travel across the wing surface when you get close to the surface of the water. Think of a Wingtip Vortices problems like this: Air is getting sucked down from the surface of the water in the form of a mini tornado. The Steps help to keep that air from traveling straight across the whole wing surface by disrupting the easy flow of air across the wing with the abrupt contour change of a Step. You will notice that you can get the wingtips out of the water on turns and reconnect with the water flow more easily than other wings. Twin in the wing tips can also help with this problem but the Steps technology is like Twist or Winglets on steroids!

Construction

Front wings are CNC shaped PVC cores with outer skins of 100% carbon with integrated cone construction connect to both top and bottom surfaces.

GoFoil uses an excess amount of fiber on their wings at 1000gm2 surface fiber loading.

All wing tips are solid carbon for maximum durability.

    A truly awesome foil. Great glide, amazing turning ability, very stable. Paired with the V2 mast and 17 LT tail has greatly progressed my pumping, and gibing. 100% satisfied customer!

    Amazing wing, comparable lift to the GL 240. Way easier to pump & turn plus its super fast, even faster with the new tails. This wing is also way easier to paddle, my 240 seems draggy next to it. My favorite part is that it’s so forgiving.

    Using it for wake foiling. It is so responsive and fun. A major improvement over the GL wing I was using.
