Increased centre diameter to the leading edge, as well as a progressive taper provides not only improved stiffness, but also increased canopy tension.
A larger stiffer diameter LE requires an updated closing seam contribution to withstand the unique forces that winging provides.
Many prototypes allowed us to arrive with the balanced dihedral on the Mantis V2. This gives a great blend of power to stability ratio.
A single highly rigid strut allows for a lower weight and predictable depower when on a wave.
Through the updated shape and dihedral, the Mantis V2 has an increased power range which covers a larger spectrum of conditions.
A change in the wingtip shape not only aids in canopy control and stability, but also reduces the chance of a wing tip catch when getting up and pumping.

Sit back and enjoy the view with perfect vision. When spots are busy with other water users the extended vision greatly impacts on the safety of you and others.
A higher level of performance can only be achieved when the wings’s design properties are supported by a stable and reactive wing material. Nano Ripstop does just that.
