Nouveau boîtier US en carbone moulé

Les Glide V3 sont équipées de notre nouveau boîtier US en carbone moulé, développé en interne par Takoon. Grâce à leur rigidité incomparable, ces nouveaux boitiers apportent une connexion au foil inégalée, une parfaite transmission des efforts et un feeling sans pareil.

Nos nouveaux box de foil sont fabriquées en carbone préimprégné, polymérisé à haute pression et haute température dans un moule en acier. Ce processus permet d’obtenir un boîtier avec des fibres longues de carbone bien compactés, ce qui le rend tout simplement indestructible et ultra rigide.

Grâce à cette construction, si l’on compare nos boitiers carbone aux boitiers classiques comme les Futures, le gain de rigidité et de robustesse est considérable. En effet, généralement fabriqués en plastique injecté chargé avec de la fibre de verre en fibres courtes, les boitiers classiques peuvent présenter de la déformation à l’effort. Sur l’eau, cela se ressent sous forme d’un temps de latence dans la réactivité du foil, que ce soit pour le pumping, pour carver, ou pour les manœuvres. Avec nos nouveaux boîtiers carbone, la transmission des efforts est instantanée et la connexion est ultra rigide.

Plus longs, ces nouveaux boitiers donnent beaucoup plus de liberté de placement de votre foil. Ils viennent en 2 tailles: 33 cm et 38 cm en fonction de la taille de la planche. Ils sont ainsi plus longs de 6 cm et 11 cm que les boîtiers futurs. Ainsi, vous pourrez affiner vos réglages, afin de trouver la position personnelle qui vous convient le plus.

Ils bénéficient aussi d’une double ouverture par rails pour un montage plus rapide : plus besoin de démonter entièrement vos boulons de la platine, il suffit simplement de desserrer les vis, de faire glisser le foil dans les ouvertures et de resserrer les vis et hop, le tour est joué.

Presentation

Discover the Glide Air, a wing foil board with no compromise!

The Glide Air is the perfect board for beginners and advanced riders at a very affordable price.

Easy to carry in a backpack, the Glide Air will allow you to travel lightweight and without any risk to your equipment while enjoying a board without compromising performance and comfort.

The Glide Air's shape is based on our bestseller rigid board the Glide, fitted in an inflatable version. With its length and relatively flat rocker, the Glide Air offers an excellent glide allowing early take-off and good stability thanks to the generous width.

The Glide Air is inflatable, sure, but also stiff! The reinforced drop-stitch combined with the pre-preg carbon plate on the hull provides a nice stiff feeling under the rider's feet for reactive riding. The Y-shaped foot strap will allow you to enjoy great freeride sessions.

Perfect for beginners, the Glide Air is a high-performance inflatable board offering a wide range of use. It is also ideal for experienced riders looking for a board to ride while travelling.

Besides being easy to carry and store, inflatable boards like the Glide Air have many advantages. They are lightweight, durable, and sturdy boards that withstand impacts and rarely get damaged.

Riding on an inflatable board is safe. For beginners who experience frequent falls and shin splints, the contact with an inflatable board will be more cushioned and less traumatic.

The Glide Air comes with a backpack that can hold its pump, which is also supplied. This dual-action inflation pump will allow you to inflate your board and kite effortlessly. And for those afraid of burning out on inflation before your session, don't worry: the 150L version of the Glide Air inflates to 17PSI in just 3 minutes!

The Glide Air, carriable without its backpack and inflatable in a few minutes, will be the best friend of travelling free riders who want to wing foil all over the world without compromising comfort and flying sensations.

For beginner riders and young and small riders up to 60 kg, we recommend the Glide Air 4'10' 90L; the 5'3 110L for riders up to 85 kg; the 5'6 145L for riders from 60 to 100 kg; the 6'0 160L for wing foilers from 75 to 100 kg and up. And the 6'6 is fitted to heavy riders above 85 kg. Both sizes (6'0 and 6'6) have two side fins to give you better control of your board's path. It means you can take your time before taking off without the stress of drifting downwind too fast.

 

For advanced riders looking for an easy-to-carry board to explore the world, the 90L Glide Air 4'10 and 110L Glide Air 5'3 are perfect. Remember that inflatable boards feel less stable with their round rail shape than rigid boards of equal volume. So, when choosing the size of your Glide Air, we suggest getting one slightly larger than your current rigid board.

Supplied with

The Glide Air takes advantage of the best technology in inflatable boards. The board is built with a reinforced woven drop stitch that retains rigidity and shape. This technology, extensively used in the leisure boating industry, such as inflatable stand-up paddles, offers a structure without compromise regarding stiffness, durability, and performance.

Forget about impacts due to the risks inherent in a board's life! To improve the resistance of the Glide Air, rails have been reinforced with a dual layer of PVC. Durable and robust, the Glide Air resists well to shocks and rarely gets damaged. 

The inflatable part of the Glide Air is topped off by a prepreg carbon plate to which the foil is attached. 

This carbon panel on the board's hull and under the feet fixes the foil and reinforces the whole board's rigidity. This carbon plate provides an optimal connection between the rider and the foil on an inflatable board for great riding and significant flying sensations. This lightweight panel also features an integrated carrying handle for easy one-handed transport of your Glide V2. Of course, this rigid carbon plate is not foldable; its length is not oversized, and it can fit into a decent-sized bag and is easy to carry.

The carbon panel is outfitted with a long Double Rails US Box. Depending on the conditions, this length allows you to set your foil forward in the rails to find the best position for your sailing comfort.

To improve your connection to the board and the comfort of riding, the Glide Air is equipped with Y-shaped foot strap inserts and a large, comfortable, and grippy EVA pad.

For beginners, the two larger sizes of the Glide Air (6'0 and 6'6) are equipped with two side fins to give you better control of your board's heading before take-off and also in wing-SUP. This way, you can take your time before flying without the stress of drifting downwind too fast.
