STRIKE CWC V3
Strut your stuff
Light, compact, and easy to use, the STRIKE CWC V3 is the quintessential light-wind weapon. F-One’s patented 3-strut wing has proven to be the ideal concept for a successful large surface wing, and the STRIKE CWC has dominated light-wind wing foiling since its appearance on the market. Featuring a new and revolutionary design as well as F-ONE’s latest technologies and materials, this CWC V3 will let you show off your wing foiling skills in full confidence on any light wind day.
- Patented compact design provides maximum power with impressive maneuverability.
- Smaller wingspan brings efficient pumping and maintains the wingtips away from the surface of the water.
- A small diameter center strut allows these large surfaces to keep a record weight.
- Its perfect balance facilitates the creation of apparent wind, while increasing its high end capacities.
- New HITEX and NANO for increased durability.
For this CWC V3, we have worked on three areas: the materials, the placement of these materials and the design to improve performance and durability.
The airframe of the STRIKE CWC V3 is made of HITEX 158g and 178g. This brand-new high tenacity polyester exclusive to F-ONE offers great resistance to elongation and therefore greater durability and performances.
The central strut is thinner in diameter thanks to the HITEX 158g and its independent valve that allows for a better control of its pressure. Its longitudinal reinforcements help command its shape and resistance.
The two central segments of the leading edge on each side of the strut are made of HITEX 178g, while the remaining segments are in 158g. Both materials are perfectly distributed to account for the different tensions, high pressures, and weight distribution in this area.
Since the beginning, F-One has also kept a thin leading edge diameter at the wingtips, bringing agility, comfort and glide, but also lightness and less inertia.
Finally, the CWC V3 features our new NANO canopy. This innovative micro ripstop polyester in 55g is used on the entire canopy of the wing. It benefits from a NANO coating and a Plasma treatment process that brings an increased rigidity, resistance to elongation and tears, and durability. With optimized materials and design, this wing remains light and comfortable.
Through Sail Engineering, F-One conceived a completely new design; everything has been precisely thought-out to adapt the wing’s shape to the tensions and new materials.
Every panel on the CWC V3 is precisely laid to carry a specific load. The front of the wing combines horizontal panels separated by a vertical seam from the innovative radial center panels, which are mapped to accurately follow every load trajectory. The trailing edge is controlled by a vertical panel. Small radial cuts are also implemented on the wingtips and on the back of the strut to spread tensions. Aligning the fibre exactly along the load paths means that stretch can be controlled to a never-before- seen level on a wing.
Thanks to this precise load management, the wind range of the STRIKE CWC is extended and the range of wind strengths where the wing feels perfect is greater than ever before.
