What Slingshot has to say about the Hover Glide FWind2
Built for freestyle foiling and speed, the FWIND2 is set-up with our H5 Wing. The wings are smaller in size,and provide a smaller “foil footprint.” This will benefit lighter riders looking for control, stability and early take-off. Advanced riders will love the performance the H5 wing delivers. It excels at all points of sail,turns like crazy and is awesome for jumping, front loops, back loops and all other freestyle riding types.
Slingshot uses the same Hover Glide aluminum mast platform for all our foil disciplines (kite, wake, sup and wind). We are the only foil company that can claim our mast has been tested and proven for years, by thousands of foil-boarders in three other foil sports. It is the stiffest and strongest aluminum mast on the market. Our masts are 2.5X thicker than the competition and designed specifically to take the enormous loads that windsurfing puts on the foil and mast. Windsurfing requires more stiffness and durability than kiteboarding, wakeboarding,surfing or SUP. Extruded from 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum,each mast is optimized by CnC machining to reduced drag and eliminate vibration. Masts are also tempered and anodized for saltwater resistance.
The height of the mast & fuselage is 35.4" (93cm).
The FWind2 can be used in 12 - 24 knots and is designed for higher winds and smaller / lighter riders.
