Technical Specifications

Presentation

All the design innovations from our fourth STRIKE have been applied to this STRIKE CWC. This wing features once more a super intuitive pumping with a certain flexibility that makes it easy to start planing without having to expend a lot of energy or learn a special technique. Each pumping motion smoothly propels you forward, guaranteeing an instantaneous take-off and more efficiency than ever.

The aerodynamics of this wing have naturally been optimized for exceptional performance in light wind. In flight, the STRIKE CWC is perfectly balanced and easy to forget about. This incredible forward traction, inspired by the new STRIKE, offers a unique glide, enabling more enjoyable and prolonged sessions. The CWC makes going upwind easy, and boasts an impressive high end as well so you can absorb the gusts if the wind picks up.

 

Materials

The leading edge of this fourth STRIKE CWC remains in HITEX 158g and 178g. This high tenacity polyester offers great resistance to elongation and therefore greater durability and performances. Both HITEX weights are perfectly distributed to account for the different tensions, high pressures, and weight distribution in this area.

The innovation of this wing lies in the strategic placement of ALUULA on its three struts. Thanks to the mechanical properties of this light and resistant material, the central strut is now thinner. This results in less drag and a noticeable reduction in weight, which also favors freefly and handling during downwinders or jibes. Finally, the ALUULA struts reduce inertia during maneuvers, transitions, and pumping.

Guaranteeing performance and durability, our thicker TECHNOFORCE™/D2 in 66g has been placed on the trailing edge where tensions are important and resistance essential. The rest of the wing’s canopy is in TECHNOFORCE™/D2 in 52g.

 

Design

The central strut of the CWC is now completely straight, which allows us to better control its deformation and possible twisting, while reducing drag. As a result, the infill is a bit lower and deforms less, and we’ve extended it almost all the way to the back. Our innovative Load Diffuser is reduced for weight gain, especially during freefly.

We’ve also added dihedral angle to improve stability and keep the wingtips out of the water when pumping and riding. The new leading and trailing edge tensions help keep the profile smooth and stable for incredible performance and control.

The wing’s body features a horizontal cut to optimize the weight of the seams on these large-surface, light-wind wings. The trailing edge features a vertical cut in 66g for ideal traction control. A small radial cut is implemented on the back of the strut to spread tensions. Finally, the Load Diffuser further helps maintain the profile sleek and efficient, leading to the ultimate stability, performances, and longevity.

The accurate panel layout, precise load management and staggered seams continue to bring exceptional control of the profile. The materials are also perfectly distributed to account for the different tensions, high pressures, and weight distribution in each specific area.

 

Handles

The new CWC is fitted with our new interchangeable handle system. Soft, hybrid or rigid handles, you now get to customize handles at your preference.

 

The light wind revolution

Our Compact Wing Concept (CWC) patent allows adding more surface into a given wingspan without compromising lightness and performances. The two extra struts increase the wing’s surface without increasing the leading edge’s length and diameter. This specific geometry brings great power with ease of use and therefore a light feel with less wingspan.

The compact outline makes it easy to obtain an incredible start when planing and pumping. Highly maneuverable and easy to flip around when on the water, the CWC lets you ride effortlessly, making you feel like you’re using a 5m², and with wingtips naturally staying away from the surface of the water.

With a refined design, the use of ultra-light and resistant materials, a new and efficient pumping, exceptional glide, perfect balance and a precise layout of every material, the fourth STRIKE CWC will continue to be a game changer for your light wind days.

DETAILS

STRIKE CWC VALVES

This wing features two highly efficient valves: one of the central strut and one on the leading edge. These two areas of the wing face different forces, and thus require two different pressure recommendations. As a result, the central strut is thinner in diameter and gains in rigidity thanks to its independent valve that allows for a better control of it's pressure. 

INTERCHANGEABLE WING HANDLES SYSTEM

In 2024, all our wings are fitted with our new interchangeable handle system. Whether you’re looking for a light and comfortable setup with soft handles, a more direct and aggressive ride with hard handles or something in between with our innovative hybrid handles, we’ve got you covered.

Wings come with soft handles pre-installed, but swapping a handle set between wings is quick and easy thanks to our screwless setup.
