STIFF AND ULTRALIGHT DUAL RESIN-COATED WOVEN FABRIC
15% OVERALL WEIGHT REDUCTION
25% LIGHTER THAN TRADIONAL DACRON
5X MORE TEAR RESISTANT
Fresh to the foil scene is the GT1 Plus performance wave to freeride crossover wing. Featuring new premium XTC TEX material construction, the GT1+ is lighter, stiffer and highly efficient. The new innovative handle system allows for a customised setup aimed at the more demanding wing foiler pushing the limits with wave ambitions.
Through the evolution of wing foiling, we saw a clear demand for an additional performance wing to add to the lineup. A high-tech design brief meant a lengthy development process testing new materials that would fulfil the demand for lightweight performance that’s stiff and reactive with fantastic downwind drift.
The GT1+ is crafted with our proven X4 ripstop as well as the new XTC TEX material. The result offers the right balance between lightweight and a stiffer more responsive frame construction. Like with our RS+ kite, the GT1 + feels more direct and reflects our highest standard in material composition.
Thanks to the innovative CS Handle, the GT1+ offers an optional grip to suit your preferred riding style. Choose from super light and intuitive power control, or easily switch to a more direct feeling by simply inserting the tension brace option.
Our highly innovative dual-infill panel adds advanced profile support between the strut and canopy to reduce turbulence and create natural drift. The Gt1+ will become your best friend for every wave session and the optimal choice for long downwinders.
With superior stiffness, lightness, and efficiency, the GT1+ is the choice for the ambitious freerider seeking top-performance wing capabilities!
- Dual infill panel for advanced profile support between the strut and canopy reduces turbulence and creates neutral drift
- Balanced freeride shape with optimised dihedral angles.
- Clean profile with tight canopy tension for maximum manoeuvrability and drift.
- Optimised panel cuts run in the load-bearing direction to control stretch.
Our highly innovative dual-infill panel adds advanced profile support between the strut and canopy to reduce turbulence and create natural drift as well as to control stretch. The optimised dihedral angles and clean profile give a balanced shape for freeride capabilities.
- A large central leading edge diameter adds stiffness and power, with thinner segments at the wing tips for increased agility.
- Innovative XTC TEX fabric gives lighter and stiffer construction.
- Single inflation system.
- Light German TPU bladder material.
A large central leading edge diameter adds stiffness and power, with thinner segments at the wing tips for increased agility. The innovative XTC TEX fabric gives lighter and stiffer construction and the German TBU bladder material reduces the weight further. A single inflation system allows you to easily pump and go.
- Innovative exchangeable CS Handle system to suit your preferred riding style.
- Allows riders to change between soft or rigid control.
- Soft = super light and intuitive power control.
- Rigid = more direct power control and steering.
- Leading edge handle for one-handed surf and downwind control.
The innovative exchangeable CS Handle system allows you to change between soft light control, or rigid more direct control to suit your preferred riding style. The leading edge handle also allows for one-handed surf and downwind control.
Eleveight wings are built with innovative and quality workmanship. Details are strategically designed for long lasting durability, while keeping the wing light and agile.
Our premium XTC TEX is a stiff and ultra-light dual resin-coated woven fabric. It is significantly lighter than traditional Dacron, minimizing deformation and elongation under force. The result is a high-performance wing that is extremely responsive in steering, providing a very direct and highly efficient power development.
Our superior X4 canopy fabric is strong and tear-resistant to guarantee durability and lasting performance. X4 is engineered to be dynamic and developed exclusively in partnership with Teijin, the leading supplier of sailcloth materials. Made from the best 4×4 ripstop polyester yarn, X4 has less elongation and a high-temperature UV-resistant resin finish.
