AIR RIDE

FREERIDE

 

The Air Ride is our dedicated freeride foiling concept, which combines the benefits of a high aspect construction with outstanding lightness and manoeuvrability. An updated panel layout with a newly designed sail window eliminates unnecessary seams, which leads to reduced weight and increased durability. Our development team modified the luff panel for a better load distribution and optimized the luff curve, stabilizing the sail’s top and adding even smoother batten rotation. An overall impressively light construction combines performance to get in the air quickly and fly above the water surface swiftly with ease of use and a balanced feeling, making the Air Ride the right choice for foiling at all skill levels.

SAIL FEATURES

Our goal is to provide every surfer with the perfect sail for his or her demands, which is why we implement the right materials and features for each application area. Depending on the sail model we use the suitable combination of different materials of highest quality to achieve the perfect mix of lightness, durability, power and handling. Quality, advanced technology and innovation means everything to us and each step in the development process is extensively planned to offer unique windsurfing performance.
