Armstrong High Aspect 925 Front Wing
Performance, speed and glide have been taken to the next level with the High Aspect 925. At 9.8:1 it’s a true Hight Aspect ratio foil wing that sets the standard for glide performance, while retaining enough handling that it can be turned easily, making for an exhilarating ride in surf.
The sleek inflected tips help prevent ventilation even if the tip breaches. Next level pump and glide if you want to double dip or link up swells, this wing just keeps on going! For experienced wingers there is no comparison, it makes tacking so fun and easy as the speed and glide gives you so much time to complete maneuvers. Combine this with amazing upwind angles winging, freakish light wind performance, the riding never stops! Downwind aficionados requiring max glide performance will want to get their hands on this wing simply because it is next level!
Developed with key design input from Pete Burling, Helmsman of Team New Zealand’s Americas Cup yacht (Current AC holders) and tested by legendary Sailor Jimmy Spithill. Pete and Armie became friends as foiling united their search and passion for ultimate performance and glide on downwind runs. The mad scientist and these high-performance sailing gurus have collaborated to create something the likes of which has not seen before outside the Americas Cup!
The HA925 just happens to be a magic number, the surface area, section thickness and planform give this wing something very special. We had no idea that a HA wing would ever be so effective in the surf, prone or Sup! It has mind blowing carving turns or snaps, stability at speed and phenomenal glide so linking or double dipping is easy! For the performance winger the HA925 just keeps on going and flowing! Crank upwind, catch a micro bump for miles or edge hard and send it, the speed this thing generates sends you up with Branson and Basos! If you need a glide for Pump or Downwinding then there will be no disappointment here, this wing has the glide of an albatross.
The HA925 is a sublime combination and we think it is going to be appreciated by all kinds of riders because it is very easy to tap into its incredible performance.
