F-One, the renowned French kiteboarding and wing foiling brand, has launched its latest edition of the iconic Strike wing—the Strike V3. This state-of-the-art wing is the ultimate performance wing, offering comfort, stability, power, precision, durability, and the ability to go upwind quickly and efficiently in any winds.
Revolutionary Design for Unprecedented Performance
The Strike V3 boasts a completely new design that has been precisely thought out to adapt the wing’s shape to the tensions and new materials. The wing's design ensures perfect control of the profile and deformations to guarantee comfort throughout the entire wind range.
New HITEX and TECHNOFORCE for Increased Durability
The inflatable structure of the Strike V3 is made of HITEX 158g and 178g, a brand-new high-tenacity polyester exclusive to F-One that offers great resistance to elongation, ensuring greater durability and performance. The central strut is thinner in diameter thanks to the HITEX 158g and its independent valve, which allows for better control of its pressure. The four central segments of the leading edge on each side of the strut are made of HITEX 178g, while the four outer segments nearer the wingtips are in 158g, with both materials perfectly distributed to account for the different tensions, high pressures, and weight distribution in this area. Additionally, the wing’s canopy is in TECHNOFORCE™/D2 in 52g, with a thicker TECHNOFORCE™/D2 in 66g for the trailing edge where tensions are important, and resistance is essential.
Impressive Upwind Performance and Perfectly Balanced Center of Traction
The Strike V3 delivers unparalleled performance, with impressive upwind performances and perfectly balanced center of traction for an intuitive ride. With the Strike V3 delivering stability beyond compare, the flatter dihedral angle allows for a bigger projected area, improving power and pumping abilities for planing starts.
Available in Different Sizes
The Strike V3 is available in different sizes: 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0, 5.5 m², making it suitable for a wide range of riders.
Handles for Optimal Control
To further improve and optimize the rider’s control of the wing, the handles have been rigidified while keeping the original, lighter construction that doesn’t include any hard parts that could damage your wing, ding your board, or hit yourself. The grippy, ergonomic and comfortable handles allow for some flexibility so your wrist is always in line with your arm.
Performance and Control
Thanks to its new design and precise fabrics placement, the Strike V3 is a masterpiece of aerodynamism. The perfect control of the profile and deformations guarantees unforgettable sessions. The wing's legendary planing and pumping power are even better, while its upwind abilities are impressive with an incredibly consistent traction. The Strike V3 also offers impressive height and lift for freestyle and jumping, making all landings easier.
In conclusion, the F-One Strike V3 Wing is a groundbreaking wing that pushes the performance of a wing into new territories, with unprecedented performance and durability. It is ideal for riders of all levels, whether you are freeriding, freestyling, surfing, or freeflying.
