FUSION V1 - DEFINING A NEW ERA OF FEELING AND PERFORMANCEThe Fusion wing is designed around the high-performance planform of the Flux, including the pre-loaded leading edge, which is made with stiff performance dacron and experiences drastically less deformation in strong conditions. The 100% double surface ram air design creates an enclosed high pressure space between the entire upper and lower surfaces. The internal rib structure supports both sail layers and helps the wing smoothly deal with dynamic pressure differentials when the wing’s angle-of-attack changes. 
  • INNOVATIVE AND UNIQUE FUSION DESIGN TECHNOLOGY
  • COMBINING OZONE'S MULTIFACETED AERODYNAMIC KNOWHOW
  • EXCEEDINGLY FAST AND DYNAMIC WITH INSANE RANGE
  • DEVELOPED FOR RIPPERS LOOKING TO TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL!

The Fusion brings a new realm of wingfoiling… opening up new freedom to ride smaller foils as it naturally delivers far higher flying speeds to solid riders, also allowing them to rip along at previously impossible angles up and downwind. Not to mention the dynamic jump and flight potential.

 

Please find some initial information below to give you a good idea of the product’s amazing capabilities, and its target riders.

We hope you are as excited to read about it as the team were to develop it, because this full double surface design with ram-air technology is an industry first! As you’ll see below, we expect it to shake the industry awake when people see there’s now a new realm of performance on offer for solid riders!

 

This is a new era of performance and we expect to see the Fusion in your demo kit and being talked about on your beach. Become one of the first movers to have one and enjoy the energy of this new direction.

There will be other sizes which will be the same size range as the Flux, these will be released size by size within the coming months.

 
 
 

 FUSION: DEFINING A NEW ERA OF FEELING AND PERFORMANCE

Please note: the Fusion wings in the GIF images of this newsletter are only prototypes. The final graphics are the orange and white colours you see in the photos and renders in this newsletter. There will also be only one colour option to ensure that Fusions are as recognisable as possible! While some prototypes in the GIFs still had soft handles, the final production handles will also be the rigid, lightweight, carbon handles with EVA grip that feature on the Flux.

The background: Five years ago, we launched the FUSION project, with the goal to combine our manufacturing expertise with our knowledge of foil kite, inflatable kite, paraglider and wingsuit design.

Our efforts for this project centred around optimal aerofoil design, leading us to the efficient but difficult to achieve, double surface design.

Through innovative construction techniques and the "ram air" principles integral to wingsuits, we've achieved a design that presents the wing and kite sector with a revolutionary perspective.

Fusion has been achieved! The new FUSION freeride wing marks a paradigm shift in performance.

Tailored to riders seeking higher speeds, dynamic jump and flight potential along with previously impossible angles up and downwind.

CUTTING EDGE PERFORMANCE:

  • 100% DOUBLE SURFACE
  • RAM AIR TECHNOLOGY
  • INTERNAL RIBS
Fusion wing

 

The Fusion wing is designed around the high-performance planform of the Flux, including the pre-loaded leading edge, which is made with a lightweight, stiff performance dacron and experiences drastically less deformation in strong conditions.

The Fusion's 100% double surface ram air design creates an enclosed high pressure space between the entire upper and lower surfaces. The internal rib structure supports both sail layers and helps the wing smoothly deal with dynamic pressure differentials when the wing’s angle-of-attack changes.

WHAT IS THE BIG ADVANTAGE OF THE DOUBLE SURFACE DESIGN?

 

Advantage of Fusion double surface design

A dramatic reduction in drag…

When the air travels over a wing it splits at the stagnation point on the leading edge. While the air that runs along the top surface has a clean and continuous surface to follow, the airflow on the bottom of a single surface wing creates vortices behind the leading edge. This turbulent underside flow creates drag which reduces performance.

Disadvantage of single surface wings

 

A hot knife through butter…

The Fusion's design has unlocked enormous performance potential. Producing more lift, while reducing drag, means performance gains have moved in bigger steps and these improvements are revealed in far more areas than just locked-in, straight line speed.

All performance areas are improved by the fact that the ride is incredibly smooth and predictable. The double surface absorbs gusty winds with unrecognisable ease and the wing generates so much more power with less need to sheet in hard. The double surface is less susceptible to luffing, so you can hold more wind and power than a single surface design while riding closer to the wind, which means you can go faster with incredible control.

On the water, you can feel truly free on the Fusion. Explore greater distances in less time while taking corners faster and tighter than you’ve ever experienced.

Tested by the best... "It feels like a hot knife through butter." – Johnny Heineken.

FAQs: 

Who is it for?

The Fusion Wing is for riders that are proficient at tacking and gybing, sending and landing airs confidently and who generally don’t crash very often. It is for those who are ready to experience a new realm of winging where previously unreachable performance is now achievable.

 

 

Does it need a different riding technique?

As the wing carries more inertia due to the volume of air inside the wing, it does handle a bit differently to a single surface wing, but once you’re dialled in, the added benefits of increased range, power and previously impossible riding angles are undeniable.

Only subtle changes to your technique are needed to get in tune and start feeling performance gains.

The simplest rule to keep in mind is: just let the wing fly!

Initially, you need to become less reliant on cranking the rear handle for power. The more you crank the rear handle, the less you’re letting it fly, so we advise ensuring you’re well powered up for your first sessions. You’ll soon find you have more power without needing to sheet in as hard.

 

 

Is it heavy?

No. In fact the Fusion 5m weighs just 100 grams more than our Flux 5m wing!

The Fusion has a unique internal structure and uses more material than our single surface wings, but all our wings are always born as light as possible, thanks to high quality material placements and the expert sewing techniques developed in our factory.

 
 

 

Does it take on water?

The air intakes have been optimally designed to allow air in while preventing water entry. In the event that water enters the wing, there are four drainage holes located at the trailing edge; two near the strut and two at the wingtips.

 

 

Can it be repaired?  

Yes it can. Although repairing damaged sail cloth can be more complex and take longer than for a single surface wing, all seams can be accessed and the internal ribs are also not attached to the leading edge.

Zips next to the inflation valves on the leading edge and strut also allow for easy bladder replacement. More details to follow.

Is it for me?

If you are an experienced and solid rider who knows how to handle a wing carefully and is looking for max speed, radical riding angles, overhead drive and the sensation of riding a precision aerofoil, you have to check it out!

While it is possible to ride and enjoy the Fusion on an intermediate, mid-size front foil wing, the Fusion opens up a new freedom to play with smaller, faster foils and these are key to unlocking the wing’s real potential.

To access all the performance potential the Fusion has to offer, we recommend using higher performance foils such as the MA800 or other race foils.

Simply put, the faster you go the more performance advantages come alive!
