North Sonar Foil Pkg 1500R
Customize your ride with North's fully interchangeable foil parts to explore multiple disciplines and riding styles all with one setup. Both the Aluminum and Carbon Editions include Geolock load bearing connection and carbon rear Stabilizer. Engineered to last, North's unique GeoLock tapered geometry locking system provides a more effective load-bearing connection between the Mast and Fuselage, locking them together, so they feel like one piece. Screws engage the GeoLock while the load transfer now takes place over the full cross-section of the mast profile, allowing for a more efficient load distribution and longer-lasting connection. Patent-pending.
In perfect harmony with any Front Wing, North's dihedral-shaped carbon pre-preg rear Stabilizer provides control and riding comfort, allowing fast pivoting turns and easy surface breach-recovery. The Stabilizer's positioning on top of the Fuselage allows for a clean, undisturbed approaching flow. Surface piercing of the Stabilizer is not a problem, as the Front Wing sits deeper in the water and is still fully submerged, giving you that extra time to react and adjust your ride height.
Sonar Aluminum Foil Edition
The new refined aluminium foil section gives the best balance between light weight and increased strength for higher loads, so you can wing, SUP, surf and kite foil with confidence, making use of the fully interchangeable Sonar Foil System to extend your playtime on the water. Engineered to last, with exceptional strength to weight ratio, and our unique GeoLock system for a clean, direct feel with minimum resistance on the water. The AF72 mast is ideal for shallower waters, and prone surf foiling. The AF85 mast increases overall ride performance in choppy conditions.
The new Sonar AF72 and AF85 Masts are 30% stiffer than the AK mast yet only 13% heavier. The AF72 mast is ideal for shallower waters, and prone surf foiling. The AF85 mast performs across all disciplines and offers you more ride height to clear waves or to heel over for tighter turns. It is also more forgiving in rougher conditions.
Sonar 1500 Front Wing
The Sonar 1500R is a true crossover wing with real performance across every foiling discipline. So stable, you’ll feel like you’re like standing on the ground. The 1500R is great for prone foil surfing in medium to large waves, has a smooth carvy feel and fits nicely in the pocket. Its predictable lift gives you time to find a comfortable stance without fighting to keep the nose down as the foil accelerates. So you’re able to remain in the same position over the entire speed range. The balance of the foil system means you can place your back foot further behind the mast, letting you ride the board more like a shortboard.
North's new, patent-pending reflexed-camber foil section design gives the wing pitch stability and prevents your board’s tendency to nose up strongly when you first get going. Thus, it eliminates the need for you to change your position to trim the board as you speed up, or as you drop-in on a wave. The Sonar reflexed wings have a relatively large surface area, which makes them highly controllable, with incredible roll and pitch stability. Usually, a large wing means more drag, hence less speed. But because you can position the reflexed wings on the fuselage with a lower angle of attack, they feel smaller than they are in terms of their speed range and responsiveness. A reflexed wing gives you impressive control throughout the entire speed range, with extreme top-end speeds unheard of for a wing that size
