Description

Program

The easy and versatile front wings.

Introduction

Their large surface area combined with their slim profile offer ease, lift and speed.

The program is simple: fly at very low speed, facilitate maneuvers and handle a good top speed.

The surface is close to the one of the Rise so that these X-Over are very easy. It flies almost immediately and effortlessly. But this surface also saves you from oversizing and having to take a wing with a lot of wingspan that will be less maneuverable. This important surface area of ​​the X-over and therefore their compactness is a guarantee of maneuverability. For someone who wants to ride short distances and do a lot of maneuvering, this is the perfect wing.

The profile is thin: you will have a high enough top speed potential to send all the moves in the catalog. L’Ours designed this range of front wings on the border between an intermediate rider program and a freestyle program. Both need an early takeoff and strong acceleration, without sacrificing handling. This is exactly what the X-over does.

In surfing, the X-over is very simple. Not the most radical but certainly the smoothest while offering great handling. This is especially true at low speed or in soft waves where it will really perform.
A beginner in foiling will love the X-over because it offers immense potential for progression. The low ratio increases tolerance. It’s ideal for feeling comfortable. The foil does not fly to 25 knots as soon as you climb on it to catapult you into an uncontrollable fall.

Playful, easy, relatively quick, it has all the qualities for someone who does not seek radicalism.

Understand each wing in detail:

The M is 70 cm wide, 1250 cm2, 2.4 cm thick for a volume of 1.59L.

  • In surf foil, it’s a small wing for light riders.
  • In wing, it’s a small wing for light riders.
  • In kite foil, it’s a very versatile wing that offers lift even at very low speeds.

The L is 80 cm wide, 1550 cm2, 2.7 cm thick for a volume of 2.2L.

  • In surf foil, it’s an average wing for less than 75kg.
  • In wing, it’s an average wing for those under 75kg.

The XL has a wingspan of 90 cm, 1900 cm2, 2.9 cm thick for a volume of 2.8L.

  • In surf foil, it’s a large wing for sizes from 75 to 95kg.
  • In wing, it’s a large wing for sizes from 75 to 95kg.

The XXL is 100 cm wide, 2200 cm2, 3.1 cm thick for a volume of 3.4L.

  • In surf foil, it’s a very large wing for riders over 85kg and small waves.
  • In wing, it’s a very large wing for riders over 85kg and very light winds.

Understand their shapes

The shape of this range puts everything on the surface. This is its main strength: a large downforce which allows you to fly very early on on compact and therefore reactive wings.

The profile is quite thin (in proportion to the important chord, it is even very thin) but advanced. It’s made for a lot of efficiency at low speed, while saturating as late as possible in top speed.
Seen from the front, the X-over is almost flat to get the most performance possible. The user of these wings will know how to manage their height and recover from stalls if necessary. The lack of camber makes for very healthy behavior.

Several wing sizes accommodate different builds and different speeds.

Construction

Our wings are made of 90% Prepreg 3K carbon, with over 15 layers of fiber in total. High stress points like joints and connections are reinforced with Kevlar to resist tearing and with glass for tolerance.

High pressure and high temperature molded on a foam core, our wings are virtually indestructible. Both rigid and floating, they‘re the perfect balance between low weight and infinite durability.

All of our wings and stabs have soft “tips”. Their ends are rounded and voluminous to limit the danger. We invite you to exercise the utmost caution nonetheless. Likewise, the trailing edges are blunt so as not to be sharp.

Note: These wings are only compatible with the Allvator Surf/SUP V1 and V2 fuselage.

 

Your benefits are clear:

1. An efficient shape created by one of the leaders in the world of foiling.
2. A design at the cutting edge of R&D and ahead of its time.
3. Proven construction on thousands of foils.
4. Full Option finishing at a great price.
5. A light and solid foil with one of the best technos on the market!!!
6. An incredible price that can only be explained by our direct relationship with you.
7. Simple maintenance and easy repairs because we have all components in stock.

Innovation is at the core of our products

Our wings are made of 90% Prepreg 3K carbon, with more than 15 layers of carbon fiber in total. High tension points such as the joints and connections are reinforced with Kevlar to resist tearing and glass for tolerance. Moulded at high pressure and high temperature on a foam core, our wings are practically indestructible. Both rigid and floating, they are the perfect balance between contained weight and infinite durability.

This technology has been tested and proven for over three years without any breakage on 30,000 ALLVATOR foil wings. In the event of a violent impact on a rock, you can easily repair them and they will be as good as new.

You will never see a GONG wing open on a leading edge because our unique draping technique crosses the layers of fibres. So there is no parting line on our wings. The entire outline has overlapping gaps, just like the rails on your top of the range boards.

This foil is completely dismountable to adapt to all sports at a lower cost and give you the possibility of replacing a damaged part. A complete spare parts catalogue is available, to allow you to make it compatible with multiple supports (Surf / SUP / Kite / Wing), and to explore the entire range of use of the foil in each sport and at all levels.

Please note that GONG is at the forefront of foil development. We have been at the origin of the creation of the biggest foil factory that produces the major brands today. 18 months of intense work and dozens of tools developed. So don’t imagine that our foils are made in a gloomy garage. We develop all our products according to the rules of the art, with many internal engineers, with state-of-the-art 3D software, countless tests, with a Team at the highest level. That’s one of the reasons why we can offer low prices and refined products: we know what we’re doing from A to Z. We do not sell freelance designed foils. Our teams are at work year round and dedicated to the development of our products.

Buying guide

For whom ?

Foilers in the progression phase will love this wing for its simplicity coupled with its potential.

The Rise is intended for pure beginners. Although they may love an X-over, we will recommend it to beginners with experience in watersports. Not to pure novices.

For what ?

It does almost everything since it lifts very well and goes relatively fast, remaining super manoeuvrable because it’s very compact.

On a surf foil it’s a simple and manoeuvrable front wing that will lift you gradually because its profile is thin. Very allround, very predictable, very efficient, it’s a really cool kite.

In wing and kite foil, it is the perfect front wing for progressing and working on maneuvers.

What size ?

The M is 70cm wingspan, 1250cm2, 2.4cm thick for a volume of 1.59L.

  • In surf foil: less than 65kg.
  • In wing: less than 65kg.
  • In kite foil: suitable for all sizes.

 The L is 80cm wide, 1550cm2, 2.7cm thick for a volume of 2.2L.

  • In surf foil: from 65kg to 75kg.
  • In wing: from 65kg to 75kg.

The XL is 90cm wingspan, 1900cm2, 2.9cm thick for a volume of 2.8L.

  • In surf foil: from 75kg to 85kg.
  • In wing: from 75kg to 85kg.

The XXL is 100cm wingspan, 2200cm2, 3.1cm thick for a volume of 3.4L.

  • In surf foil: over 85kg in soft waves.
  • In wing: over 85kg or super light wind.

We will use a larger foil in low ranges, soft conditions. And conversely a smaller foil in those recommended for stronger conditions. The important thing to remember is that the choice of your front wing depends on your size which requires lift and your average speed which generates lift.

When pumping from dock start or beach start, we recommend the front wings as follows:

  • The XL: from 65kg to 85kg.
  • The XXL: above 85kg.

In DW, we tend to think that the bigger front wing is the more efficient. With some moderation though, but yes that is often the rule.

Quiver partners?

The X-Over foil is ideal with all boards without restriction. It goes without saying that it will go hand in hand with an easy board like a HIPE, Zuma, Lance or Flint in SUP foil or wing. 

Positioning of the foil ?

For the GONG foils, place the top plate at the rear third of the US rails for surf, SUP and kite. Place it in the middle of the US rails when using it with a wing foil.

The more you move it forward, the more it makes the board pitch up. The further you move it backwards, the more the nose of the board dives.

Be careful not to move it too far forward. We often tend to forget to use the back foot, especially when we have a kite foil background. However, moving the foil back a little forces you to put more weight on the back foot and gives a more harmonious attitude and reduces effort.

Shipping

Availability:

The dates of availability of all our products are written on each product page, in the size and colour of the product concerned.

These dates are valid at the moment you consult the site and/or place an order. It is possible that this product may be ordered a few seconds after your consultation. It then becomes unavailable. If you have placed an order, this change does not concern you: the product you order is still available on the date indicated at the time of your order.

We sell several thousand products per week. The stocks are therefore very evolutionary. But our management always shows you the real availability live.

If it’s available online: it’s available 😉

 

Pre-order:

Some articles are proposed in pre-order during their routing to our premises. You can buy this article which will arrive at our place in a few weeks. This method avoids the fair to grab upon receipt of the lot and the disappointed ones who would not order within the hour.

Upon receipt, we will ship it to you as a regular order.

The times indicated on the pre-orders are 95% reliable. First of all, because we only pre-sell finished products that are arriving to us after Customs, and therefore shipped right after. And also, because we add decent margins with concern to the dates announced by the shipping companies or railways.

However, a Worker Strike, a breakdown, an overbooking, can unfortunately happen. In the case of a delay, you will be notified by email (check your spam). It is generally less than a week and totally independent of our good will.

As soon as we receive the container in La Baule, we ship your order within three working days. Then the carrier takes over: delivery time and tracking numbers are under their responsibility.

It is possible that the date displayed on the online for the pre-order of the item you have ordered and paid for may change for two reasons:

  1. All quantities of the batch are sold (most common reason). In this case, orders placed for the first container will be delivered as scheduled.
  2. The container is late and we have to shift the date by a few days. (Strikes, breakdowns, overbooking, can unfortunately happen). You will be notified by email.

We never change the delivery dates of a container without notifying customers.

 

Delays:

The dates that we announce are shipping deadlines, which GONG has in stock and available here physically.

We usually give a shipping time within 3 days, but in most cases, we ship within 24/48 hours. Normally morning orders leave in the afternoon for example.

Then the transport service takes over. The variables are then important between the customer being delivered to France (very fast) or Bulgaria (a good week) or to a forwarding agent or to Asia or the USA… You understand that each location has its own type of delay.

We work with serious and well-known carriers. They do their utmost to make you happy even if a snafu can happen. In any case, we are there to make things easier and to arrange our customers.

 

Shipping Fees: 

Contrary to others, we do not hide shipping costs in the price of our products. At GONG everyone knows exactly what he pays. The transport is charged at its strictest value, and the person who comes to pick up his products does not pay hidden transport fees.

Shipping costs are calculated according to the weight and volume of each package, and your delivery address. To this is added a labour time of order preparation.

The invoicing of the shipping costs is identical in continental France and in the bordering European countries. A surcharge is automatically invoiced for deliveries to the most distant European countries and all European islands.

For a shipment in French overseas departments and territories or outside Europe, our logistics department will contact you before the payment stage to give you an estimate of the shipping costs. You will be able to accept this estimate and pay your order, or refuse it and cancel your order.

 

Any questions:

We answer you within 24 hours by email. But 95% of your questions are answered on the site. Try to use our contact form which will guide you to all these answers.

Don’t forget to read the Forum, where thousands of users exchange information and experiences.

In any case, don’t panic. If you don’t get an answer during the weekend, it’s normal: the team is resting 😉

We are passionate and professional in our job. Our only goal is to make you happy, as much as possible 😉

 

Eco-responsible packaging:

Preserving the environment is a top priority. That’s why we are doing everything possible to reduce our environmental footprint.

The first thing is to sell quality products that will last, be repairable and will please you for a long time.

The second thing is to sell for less. Most of the pollution coming from a Board is in its use (the km driven to use it) and in the countless environmental damages you have to do to pay for it. Each euro spent is a sum of damage related to your life quite simply: eating, working hard etc… By reducing the price of our products, we significantly reduce your ecological footprint on this item.

For our shipments we use:

  • Flexi-Hex: ecological packaging of very high resistance.
  • Paper Craft Scotch Tape.
  • Final packaging made of high-end cardboard.

All this for:

  • Reusable and recyclable packaging.
  • An almost total reduction of single-use plastic.
  • Maximum protection and impact resistance thanks to the innovative design of Flexi-Hex honeycomb (35mm thick).

 

Tracking of your parcels :

The tracking of deliveries is directly ensured by the carriers to whom we have entrusted your parcels. They will contact you by email or SMS to allow you to choose the delivery methods and to follow the route of your package.

If you ask us for this tracking, we will have to do as you do: we will go see on the carrier’s app because they are the ones who manage and are responsible for this job.

 

Delivery:

We collaborate with the best transport providers to deliver you everywhere in Europe and in the world in very short delays.

We have chosen them for their quality of service and their respect of deadlines. 80% of your orders reach their destination in less than 48 hours of processing in metropolitan and continental France.

For Europe, the delays vary from 3 to 6 days depending on the country of destination.

For the rest of the world, delays can be up to 15 days.

Please note that the transport time is added to the preparation/shipping time. Two companies work on your order (GONG and the carrier). Each one controls its activity and commits itself to optimize its delays so that you are delivered as soon as possible, in good condition and at a reasonable price.

 

Reception of your front wing:

Upon delivery, simply open and inspect the condition of your Board in the presence of the carrier. A complete email explaining the procedure to follow will be sent to you when your order is shipped.

In spite of our requirements and all the care we take in packaging and protecting your Board, transportation hazards may occur. Even if it concerns less than 2% of everything we ship around the world, a Board can suffer a more or less important transportation shock.

But in any case, don’t worry, just refuse it, and a new Board will be shipped back to you.

 

Returns:

You can choose to return your products if:

  • You are not satisfied (14 days right of retraction).
  • You want to change an item.
  • You have refused your package.

 

For each situation, contact us by our contact form to help you.

Warning:

The practice of the Foil carries risks of major accidents. A bad mastery of the Foil can cause cuts, serious wounds, even death, for you and/or others.

The Foil must be practiced taking all the precautions when used in Kite because they are increased in comparison to those related to the Foilsurf. Remember that the Foil is long, sharp, and can reach high speeds. To be hit by a Foil, or to strike a third party can have dramatic consequences.

Foil always far from others, in safe and unobstructed water.

The Foil is mainly used in the light wind. This one can fall and force you to go swimming. Therefore, do not overestimate your strengths: never go further than what you can swim under present and announced conditions.

Wear a helmet and protective jacket to ensure your buoyancy. Always wear a full neoprene wetsuit.

When handling the foil, be careful not to cut yourself on the trailing edges.

GONG declines all responsibility in the event of an accident involving a GONG Foil. The Foil practice and its benefits/consequences is under the sole responsibility of the Foil user.
