Having a stiff and solid assembly between all the parts of the foil is key to making it perform at its best as well as easy to handle.
The connection of the front wing with the fuselage is highly stressed and loaded, so it is one of the critical areas of the assembly in terms of structures. The Monobloc wings are molded together with the fuselage in one shot, thereby removing the connection and the chances for unwanted and parasitic movements. The structural fibers of the fuselage are spread into the wing to achieve the smoothest and lightest connection. It is also incredibly stiff and provides absolute control at all times, with the foil responding perfectly to all of the riders’ input. When the overall dimensions are too large for convenient transportation, a connection is set into the fuselage, behind the mast where the loads are smaller.
The TITAN connection enables a very stiff and direct connection between two parts, locking efficiently any movement in all directions. Its format is compact which is hydrodynamically efficient and very easy to use, assemble and disassemble.
PRE PREG TECHNOLOGY
Pre-preg makes the foils stiffer and stronger. With pre-preg fabrics, the carbon fiber is directly impregnated with epoxy resin by its manufacturer. This guarantees a perfect ratio between epoxy and carbon and represents the highest quality process. It is then cured at high temperature, bringing strength and durability.
Quality control is much better and so is the working environment for the people building our foils. Pre-preg fabrics offer the lightest weight with the best mechanical properties of carbon fiber.
