Strike V3 Wing Design
The new radial cut provided by Sail Engineering allows the fabric to be placed in the correct direction. The fabric as well as its seams work better due to Staggered Seams. Profile control is excellent, especially in the high end, where balance is perfect, and riders are able to ride comfortably on both arms.
Strike V3 Construction Materials
The design has been improved to adapt to the new materials, including a new dihedral angle, an even more compact outline, new sweep angle, and a new profile. To control its shape and resistance in strong winds, the central strut is thinner in diameter as well as reinforced longitudinally. The F-One Strike V3 has a light weight and unique freefly stability so you can go for long surf sessions or downwinds without worrying about your wing and focus solely on your foil and trajectory.
Center Of Traction
The Strike V3 is effortless to plane and pump in your hands. On the water, you’ll appreciate its consistent traction and upwind abilities. All wind ranges are greatly enhanced by its upwind performance. One of the unmatched qualities of the Strike wings is that they pull you forward, not sideways. The traction of the STRIKE V3 has been designed for strong winds: you only need to sheet out to feel the power decrease and the traction go forward. It offers great navigation comfort upwind and allows you to push the limits of the high end with less effort. In the low end, the traction is steady and does not require any adjustments. Just sheet in and the wing works for you.
Handles On The Strike V3
The improved handles on the Strike V3 have been optimized to give you better control of your wing. The new handles are more rigid while maintaining the lightweight construction of previous versions of the Strike, so you won't have any hard parts that could do damage to yourself, your wing, or your board. The rigid handles are ergonomically designed so your wrist stays in line with your arm, allowing you better comfort and control. These improved handles also afforded F-One the ability to redesign the strut so sheeting in feels more natural.
Stability And Control Improvements
Designed for speed, the V3 will give you performance and stability. For freestyle and jumping, the height and lift will surprise you. Gain more lift and loft during jumps and enjoy smoother landings with the increased grunt that will allow you quickly get back on plan again for fresh stylish landings and takeoffs. Start planing earlier, and thus reduce the volume and size of your board. Sinker low volume board is now possible with the added control in these new Strike V3's
