F-ONE SWING 5m Mango Slate
Our design team of Robert Graham, Micka Fernandez and Raphael Salles have invested their full focus into the development of this wing. Endless hours testing and tweaking prototypes have led to one of the most advanced designs on the market. The primary goal of the design team was balance, control and performances. It is essential to have this balance to make learning easy as well as the manoeuvres and also for the wing to be stable when foiling downwind on the swell. Power is nothing without control, and the unique shape of the profile allows you to engage power instantly but also release it 100% too.
Built using our lightweight, high-quality materials, including Teijin Dacron and Technoforce D2 canopy materials, the wings are robust and easy to handle on the beach. The SWING features a single point inflation system, with high-speed airflow, means you will be on the water in an instant. The large volume leading edge gives the perfect wing stiffness and also plenty of power; meaning you don’t need large sizes to get going.
The wind range on each size has been carefully thought out to ensure you get the most time on the water. We have designed different sizes in our range as not every rider weights the same, and some spots have more wind than others. Raphael and Micka have been out riding from 15 to over 40 knots with total control at all times. The low end is impressive, but the high end and the control of the SWING is incredible too.
There are four handles on the SWING to make hand placement simple, we spent time perfecting the positions in order to avoid imbalances. In addition, there are harness loop attachments points. When you improve, you can use a harness to help take power from the arms when you go upwind. Finally, there is a wrist leash attached to the front of the SWING for safety, this ensures you will always remain connected.
