Details

With canopy tension / draft placement / angles of the tips / handle stiffness all combining to produce a powerful wing with a huge wind range due to efficiency in pumping up onto the foil and control when overpowered. What’s astounding is all the “Big Brands” came out with versions 2-3-4 and have still not been able to match the original SMIK wings performance. Especially in terms of surfing/ downwind/ jibing, maneuverability, and general control.

Unparalleled canopy tension

Not only is the leech just tight. The whole wing now maintains its shape when de powered with almost zero flutter through the whole canopy. Thus, the reaction time from de powering to sheeting on is almost instantaneous. With incredible stability when in the neutral position when either riding a trough down wind or surfing holding onto the front handle. During a downwinder it also aids the wing maintaining flight even with zero apparent wind, keeping the wing up instead of collapsing down to your feet.

Minimising strut flex.

As the wing powers up or when hit by a gust there’s less strut flex enhancing acceleration control and power, with a much more precise feel. There’s seriously a stark difference. When jumping this is even further evident with the wing not folding in half, aiding hang time and lift.

TIP Angles are critical in terms of how the wing reacts while surfing, keeping the wing flying true, being able to actually lean and drive off the wing on your backhand and avoid any annoying movements or flipping. Unlike other brands who have different wings for different purposes. SMIK covers surf freeride and race.

Rigid Handles are maintained to convert rig tensions directly through your hands. There’s no point having a tight leach and rigid struts with the direct connection to that efficiency lost through sloppy handles. When you pump the wing, the transition of power from the wings leech creates direct drive to your foil thus, instantaneous lift. A crisp, direct feel which will be unrivalled.

Double air valve are placed on either side of the center strut allows for super rapid deflation.
