Our easy high ratio stabs delivering high performance.

Introduction

The Fluid H Stab is made for more speed and as much lift.

The high ratio version of the Fluid Stabs allows access to higher speed ranges without compromising what makes the magic of Fluid Stabs: perfect glide and radical curves.

The shape of its intrado is very concave to maintain a strong lift which helps on takeoff and in all low speed situations. The feeling is stable and firm despite the high ratio.

The outline is thinner at the tips to allow a perfect rail to rail. Hardcore turns or big curves, this stab is perfect in maneuverability. To try it is to marry it 😉

Once your foil is launched, this stab provides a sensational glide that allows you to hover endlessly. A pro is 3 to 5 knots faster in wing or kite foiling than with the classic version of the stab on the Alu V2 Fuselage.

This stab includes the rear part of the fuselage which is ultra streamlined to reduce drag by 3. This fuselage design frees up all the front wings of the range.

This slender back end of the fuselage is so efficient that it boosts handling by generating less drag. Its very small section next to the stab makes it much easier to drift and cut turns short.

The fillets connecting the fitting to the profile have been optimized for more glide. But they also prevent twisting for perfect rigidity.

Compatible only with the New Pro Fuselage to minimize weight and drag using a perfectly adjusted self-tightening trapezoidal fitting, and interchangeable without difficulty.

 

Associated with the Fluid-H front wing, the foil flies in tempo with more consistent swells and allows infinite downwinds while gliding. It is also the easiest high ratio stab to pair with all our front wings. The balance is found quite naturally and the gain in speed and maneuverability is stunning.

Fluid H Stabs in sizes 38cm, 42cm and 45cm, offer a very high level of performance. This glide specific to high ratio wings will delight all lovers of speed and endless surfing.

Choosing the right size

The Fluid H Pro Stabs are quite accessible despite their high ratio. Choose the size you usually like from GONG.

Always adjust the size of the stab to the size of the front wing for a balanced flight.

The small sizehas a wingspan of 38cm, 180 cm2, 0.5 cm thick for a volume of 0.04L.

  • In surf foiling, it is a small stab for very good foilers and light ones.
  • In wing foiling, it’s small but perfect for very good level riders who want to adopt extreme riding at high speed.
  • In kite foiling, it is a key stab for experienced riders who want a fast stab.

The medium size has a wingspan of 42cm, 220 cm2, 0.5 cm thick for a volume of 0.06L.

  • In surf foiling, it is a stab that will suit good level foilers of average size.
  • In wing foiling, it’s perfect for very good level riders who want to adopt extreme high-speed riding with a decent low range.
  • In kite foiling, it is a great stab for strong riders who want a fast and maneuverable stab.

The large size has a wingspan of 45cm, 260 cm2, 0.6 cm thick for a volume of 0.07L.

  • In surf foiling, it is a large stab that will suit good level foilers of average size in small waves.
  • In wing foiling, it is perfect for good level riders who want to adopt an extreme high speed ride with a good low range.
  • In kite foil, it’s big.

Understanding their shapes

The shape of the Fluid H Stabs is dedicated to gliding with finesse and at high speed.

The slenderness of this stab gives it a lot of finesse by greatly reducing the chord and the thickness of the profile. As a result, performance is improved since you end up with a profile that drags much less water.

High ratio

The very slender outline of this stab gives it a lot of finesse by greatly reducing the chord and the thickness of the profile. Performance is significantly improved since much less drag is generated, without losing lift at a constant surface. We even gain a little since the profile will fly faster overall, speed being the source of lift.

The outline

Its very oval shape reduces the surface of the tips to promote rail to rail and therefore boost maneuverability.

Profile thickness

The profile is thin over its entire wingspan. With a strong concave in the intrado, it lifts really well in view of its extreme finesse. The tips are super thin.

The type of profile

The Fluid H have a hollow intrado to boost their lift. This intrado with an important hollow in the rear third gives a significant lift at all speeds. We take off early because it lifts more and it does not tend to dive.

The leading edge is “sharper” than on the other stabs in the range to access a higher top speed. The feeling of acceleration is crazy.

The camber

This stab has a slight negative camber with an almost constant downward curve that lowers the tips for less ventilation. Hooking is clear and very easy to feel, especially when you want to recover from a stall. The profile is further from the surface, especially in curves but with a moderate camber so as not to generate steering aberrations.

Max width

The placement of this lift point is constant throughout the range so as to always keep the same setting for the same behavior when changing wing size.

The fuselage

This stab is only compatible with our new Titanium or Aluminum Pro Fuselage. The tail of the stab in full carbon makes it possible to optimize the shape of this part of the foil to reduce its drag as well as its weight. The rear portion of the fuselage is included in this stab. It is ultra streamlined to reduce drag by 3. A real Pro fuselage which frees up all the front wings of the range to make them gain 3 to 5 knots in top speed under the feet of a pro.

This back end of the fuselage is so efficient that it boosts handling by generating less drag. Its very small section next to the stab makes it much easier to drift and cut turns short.

The fitting/profile connection fillets have been optimized for more glide. But they also ensure the blocking of twisting for perfect rigidity.

The trapezoidal interlocking system with the Pro fuselage ensures perfect firmness of the assembly without the need for counter-screws. The whole thing gives a very nice foil, light, rigid and devilishly efficient!

Construction

Our Stabs Fluid H are made of 90% 3K and 12K Prepreg carbon, with a total of over 25 fiber layers on the profile, and many more in the fitting areas.

The highest ratios in our range also contain high module carbon which provides the essential mechanical rigidity to the proper functioning of these thin and large foils.

High stress points such as fittings and connections are reinforced with Kevlar to resist tearing and fiberglass for tolerance. It is indeed essential to place fibers responding to the different types of stress in addition to the carbon which will produce dynamism.

Molded at high pressure and high temperature on a foam core, our wings are almost indestructible.

It is the perfect balance between low weight and “infinite” durability/repairability.

Wing tips are a potential source of danger. We take care not to produce an intrinsically dangerous design, within the limits of efficient hydrodynamics. Likewise, the trailing edges are designed not to be dangerously sharp. We invite you to be extremely careful despite these precautions because these parts remain sharp and dangerous by nature. Stay away, wear the proper protections, and never sharpen them. Systematically repair the slightest hitch in the outline because it represents a danger for you and others if it were to cut your leash for example. In all situations, the greatest caution is required. If in doubt, abstain (waves, strong wind, etc.).

 

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.

This technology has been tested and proven for more than 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 front wing open on a leading edge because our unique layup technique crosses the layers of fibers. Thus there is no joint plan on our wings. The whole outline has overlapping lapses, like the rails of your high-end 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 catalog of spare parts 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.

Our R&D as well as our Quality Control guarantee you products of the highest quality. Firstly because our engineers based in South Brittany, France, are the first users. Their passion for our sports coupled with their qualifications have enabled us to create a unique research center in the world.

Our position as world leader in foiling is no coincidence. Our 3D simulations, our countless technical and technological prototyping, our state-of-the-art tools, our 100% GONG factory, our tests with the Pro Team which is among the most efficient, the thousands of feedback from our customers and our Ambassadors, and a ultra involved shaper designer: these are the key elements among many others that allow us to manufacture exceptional foils.

Several years ago, we were at the origin of the creation of the first foil factory in Asia, which today produces the “prestige” brands. 18 months of intense work and dozens of tools developed. Three years ago, we launched a new 100% GONG factory which allows us to produce more parts and keep our developments and technologies secret, to offer you the best of foils.

We want to offer low prices without ever cutting corners on quality, and refined products without ever diminishing performance in each program: we know what we are doing from A to Z. We do not sell foils designed by a freelancer, we do not do not sell marketing concepts. We do thorough, serious and innovative work to create efficient and solid foils at an unbeatable price.

Buying guide

For whom ?

It is a high ratio stab for very good level riders who want to reach maximum speed and have an incredible glide in surfing, while remaining on a stab with lift and ease of use.

  • In surf foiling, you must have a good level to get the best out of this stab, but it is easy. Surprisingly easy to take off, but requires a good technical background to ride it through the entire speed range with its fast high ratio. The lift is present and the maneuverability is great.
  • In wing foiling, we take off early with this fairly simple stab. It propels you to the higher speed of the foil in an instant, which you have to be up to. And in freestyle as in surfing, it is unbeatable. Just magic.
  • In kite foiling, it is a simple and ultra-efficient stab, especially in surfing or tricks.

In summary, you need a good technical background to take full advantage of this stab but it is within the reach of all experienced practitioners. This is especially true in larger sizes.

What for?

These stabs are designed to help you gain in all performance registers: maneuverability and speed.

With a hyper hydrodynamic profile dedicated to higher speeds, it is the most manageable and buoyant high ratio of the range.

  • In surf foiling, it is clearly the ultimate stab to combine maneuvers and speed. We feel liberated from everything.
  • In wing foiling, it’s a stab to set new limits, to put the most beautiful turns of your life, and to send tricks non stop.
  • In kite foiling, it is the handy and fast stab par excellence.

Which size?

The small size has a wingspan of 38 cm, 180 cm2, 0.5 cm thick for a volume of 0.04 L.

  • En surf foiling : less than 65kg in everyday waves.
  • In wing foiling: less than 65kg or very good level and/or strong wind.
  • In kite foiling: it is great with a small front wing.

The medium size has a wingspan of 42 cm, 220 cm2, 0.5 cm thick for a volume of 0.06L.

  • In surf foiling: less than 85kg or for big riders in powerful waves and/or in tow-in.
  • In wing foiling: less than 85kg or very good level and/or strong wind. It’s rather easy.
  • In kite foiling: it’s rather big so very easy.

The large size has a wingspan of 45 cm, 260 cm2, 0.6 cm thick for a volume of 0.07L.

  • In surf foiling: for the strong riders or to marry with an XXL.
  • In wing foiling: easy for all and ideal in the light.
  • In kite foiling: it’s big but fun.

 

In pumping for dock start or beach start, we recommend these very technical stabs as follows:

  • The S-H : little technical stab but with lift. Maximum speed on the other hand.
  • The M-H : easy and versatile, with great average and top speed.
  • The L-H : Perfect with big fron wings.

In DW, we tend to think that the smallest is the most efficient. Only to some extent, especially with this high ratio stab which offers little surface for a minimum of drag.

Which quiver?

The Fluid H Stab is ideal with technical boards with noble constructions such as the FSP PRO boards.

Positioning of the foil?

For beginners on GONG foils, place the plate in the rear third for surfing, SUP and kite, and in the middle of the US rails for wing foiling.

The further you move it, the more it pitches the board up. The more you move it back, the more the nose of the board dives.

With these high ratio stabs, we will probably have to move it forward as they carry very little. Do not put it too much forward eather, it would generate a weird feel and would in fact be a sign that your stab is too small. This could induce whistling of the foil despite a perfect trailing edge.

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 stab :

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 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.

2 reviews for GONG FOIL ALLVATOR STAB PRO FLUID H

  1. Fabien

    J’ai tout simplement adoré, ca libère la glisse du foil. C’est comme si on avait enlevé le frein à main. On le sent encore plus dans les surfs et les freesurf. Ca va être difficile de revenir en arrière 😉
    Testé en 42 et 38 pour mon gabarit de 68kg: c’est parfait. 42 avec la fluid LS et 38 avec la fluid M

  2. Titouan

    Hello,
    Petit feed-back sur mon stab pro fluid 42 qui vient en remplacement de mon fluid 40.
    Globalement… c’est une révolution!! 😁
    C’est hyper manœuvrant tout en restant sain grâce à un lift important (plus que sur mon ancien fluid 40) qui le rend super polyvalent, mais surtout que dire de la glisse! La front wing est débridée, j’ai gagné en Vmax et les courbes sont plus belle avec de l’amplitude.
    C’est vraiment top de voir à quel point ce stab a transformé mon foil, maintenant il va falloir prendre du niveau pour aller chercher ces nouvelles limites!

Warning

The practice of the sport Foil may expose you to serious injury. A poor mastering of Foil may lead to cut, serious injury and/or including death for you and/or others.

Foil should be practiced by taking into consideration all kite user precautions that are associated with  the sport Foil. Remember that a Foil is long, cutting, and reaches high speeds. Getting hit by a Foil, or hitting someone/thing can have dramatic consequences.

Always Foil far from others, in a secure and safe waterscape without obstacles.

Foil is most often practiced in light winds which may cease to blow leading you to return to shore by swimming. As a consequence do not overestimate your your strength/capacity : never go further out than your skill and swimming capacities and wind conditions allow.

Always wear a helmet and life vest for floatation. Always wear a full body wetsuit.

When handling the Foil, be careful not to cut yourself along the edges.

GONG is NOT responsable in case of any and all accidents implicating a Foil GONG. The practice of Foil is undertaken under the complete responsability of the Foil User/Practioner.
