The STRIKE V3 is the ultimate performance wing since it was developed using the most recent technologies and has a ground-breaking design. This cutting-edge wing is capable of freeride, freestyle, surfing, and freeflying. The STRIKE V3 offers performance that is unmatched while ensuring ease of use, stability, power, accuracy, longevity, and the capacity to go upwind swiftly and effectively in any wind.
• Revolutionary design for unprecedented performance.
• New HITEX and TECHNOFORCE for increased durability.
• Perfect control of the profile and deformations to guarantee comfort throughout the entire wind range.
• Improved power delivery and planing.
• Impressive upwind performances.
• Legendary lightness and stability in freefly.
• Perfectly balanced center of traction for an intuitive ride.
The R&D team focused on three areas for this third iteration of our signature STRIKE in order to improve performance and durability: the materials, the location of these materials, and the design.
HITEX 158g and 178g make up the STRIKE V3's inflatable construction. This innovative, high-tenacity polyester is unique to F-ONE and delivers excellent elongation resistance, increasing durability and performance.
Because of the HITEX 158g and its independent valve, which permits better pressure control, the center strut has a smaller diameter. Its longitudinal reinforcements aid in controlling its resistance and form.
HITEX 178g is used for the four middle leading edge segments on either side of the strut, whereas 158g is used for the four outer segments closest to the wingtips. To account for the various stresses, high pressures, and weight distribution in this region, both materials are distributed exactly.
We have also maintained the original narrow leading edge diameter at the wingtips, which adds agility, comfort, and glide in addition to being lighter and having less inertia.
Along with the new HITEX, we have created a thicker TECHNOFORCE™/D2 in 66g for the trailing edge where resistance and stresses are both crucial. The rest of the wing’s canopy is in TECHNOFORCE™/D2 in 52g.
We have created a brand-new design using sail engineering; every detail has been carefully planned out to allow the wing's shape to be adjusted to the stresses and new materials.
Each panel of the STRIKE V3 is meticulously built out to support a certain load. The revolutionary radial center panels, which are mapped to precisely follow every load trajectory, are combined with horizontal panels on the front of the wing that are divided from them by a vertical seam. A vertical panel in 66g controls the trailing edge. To disperse stress, small radial incisions are also used on the wingtips and the back of the strut. Stretch may be regulated to a level never before seen on a wing by precisely aligning the fiber along the load lines. Thanks to this precise load management, the wind range of the STRIKE is extended at both the high and low end, and the range of wind strengths where the wing feels perfect is greater than ever before.
The fabric and its seams perform better with our staggered seams to maintain a clean and effective profile, and the flying shape of the wing never deforms under load. In the top end, where stability is excellent to ride completely balanced on both arms and in complete comfort, the control of the profile is optimum.
The revised radial cuts and trailing edge tensions have greatly improved performance. Our unique Load Diffuser, which is mounted on the back of the strut and is formed of overlapping panels of strong Mylar and Dacron, contributes to keeping the profile efficient and slim while ensuring the highest levels of stability, performance, and longevity.
Every piece of reinforcement on this wing has been examined for durability and weight reduction.
We were able to achieve a flatter dihedral angle and a larger projected area thanks to the STRIKE V3's unmatched stability. For planing starts, the power and pumping capabilities are consequently considerably better. Riders can now use a smaller wing or board than they previously could.
The STRIKE V3 is simpler to pump and ride thanks to an updated and marginally more compact shape with less spread. To ensure perfect balance on both arms, the center of traction has been located precisely in front of the rider.
All profiles have been updated to take into account our new parameters. To increase comfort and control in heavy gusts, we were able to slightly reduce the V3's profile thickness. The STRIKE V3's high-end potential is astounding, and its strong forward traction prevents you from exerting yourself to the point of exhaustion even when you are outmatched.
We have stiffened our handles while maintaining their original, lightweight construction, which doesn't feature any harsh pieces that could harm your wing, dent your board, or cause you to hit yourself. This will further enhance and maximize the rider's control of the wing. Your wrist will always be in line with your arm thanks to the flexibility of our gripping, ergonomic, and pleasant handles.
Additionally, it allowed us to create the strut exactly how we wanted. Its front descends abruptly onto your forehand before rising into the wing's profile close to your back hand. A more natural position to sheet in results from this.
PERFORMANCE AND CONTROL
The STRIKE V3 is an aerodynamic masterpiece due to its innovative design and thoughtful fabric arrangement. The excellent control of the profile ensures experiences to remember.
We maintained the STRIKE's lightweight design and distinctive freefly stability so you can enjoy lengthy downwinds or surfs without worrying about your wing and concentrate on your foil and direction.
Its renowned planning and pumping power is even more effective in your hands. The upwind capabilities are remarkable and have very consistent traction when used on the water. The overall upwind performance of this wing is significantly improved across the whole wind range.
The STRIKE V3 will provide performance and stability if you enjoy gliding and moving quickly in complete control and comfort. You'll be surprised by the height and lift for freestyle and jumping, and all landings will be simpler.
The V3, which is practically a completely new wing, improves on the V2 in every way and takes a wing's performance to new heights. While it will undoubtedly delight expert riders, the STRIKE is also quite approachable for anyone looking to learn about wing foiling.
The STRIKE V3 is unmatched and once again in the lead. Choose the V3 option first!
