The stab for progression.
The stab for progression.
The X-Over Stab reassures but without limiting performance.
The program is simple: fly at very low speed, facilitate maneuvers and accept a good top speed. Everything you need to progress.
Its DNA erases piloting errors:
1. Its generous surface facilitates low speed flights and offers a lot of tolerance in maneuvers.
2. The shank that allows the connection of the stab to the fuselage is longer than on other models. The stab is found further away from the Front Wing. This increase in the wheelbase gives longitudinal stability to the X-Over foil and facilitates the management of the pitch attitude for working maneuvers.
3. The winglets at 90 ° to the profile are pronounced to stabilize the foil in direction (yaw), and limit steering and crabbing. The foil will naturally position itself in the axis for maximum efficiency and facilitate learning.
It is therefore a very soft stabilizer that will give your foil a lot of simplicity. You want to go straight: it goes straight. You want to turn: it fits perfectly into the curve and keeps it smooth.
It is compatible with all front wings of the GONG range but matches better with easy wings.
Safety has been privileged on this stab which has a micro facet on the trailing edge so as not to be sharp. The tips are “square” and also with a protective facet in case of contact. The greatest caution is nevertheless required.
Understanding each stab in detail:
The small size is 42cm wingspan, 300cm², 0.7cm thick for a volume of 0.10L.
- In surf foil, it’s an average stab for those under 75 kg.
- In wing, it’s an average stab for those under 75 kg.
- In kite foil, it‘s a very versatile stab that lifts even at very low speed.
The large size is 46cm wingspan, 350cm², 0.8cm thick for a volume of 0.14L.
- In surf foil, it’s a great stab for people over 75 kg.
- In wing, it’s a great stab for those over 75 kg.
Understanding their shapes
The shape of this range is all about stability. The increased wheelbase, large surface area and winglets limit steering errors on all three axes.
Mounted with the Front Wing X-Over, this stab gives a lot of lift to fly very early.
The profile is quite thin (in proportion to the large chord, it’s even very thin) but advanced because it requires a lot of efficiency at low speed, but to saturate as late as possible in top speed. To this end, the connection with the fuselage is remarkably fluid to boost speed.
Pronounced winglets provide directional stability. The user of this stab will have a well-focused foil with a straight course and he will enter the curves easily. On the other hand, it will be more difficult to snap and slip because this stab intentionally blocks the crabbing.
Several sizes of stabs adapt to different builds and different speeds.
Our stabs 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 stabs are virtually indestructible. Both rigid and floating, they are 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 despite everything. Likewise, the trailing edges are blunt so as not to be sharp.
Note: These stabs are compatible with all fuselages in the Allvator range.
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 and stabs 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 and stabs 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.
GONG FOIL ALLVATOR STAB X-OVER: 109€
- We make quality products. We are not “low cost”.
- We sell simply without an intermediary thanks to the internet: direct from shaper to surfer.
- If we sold this stab in a surfshop, it would cost 219€ (taking into account traditional margins that we should offer to distributers and stores).
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 😉
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:
- All quantities of the batch are sold (most common reason). In this case, orders placed for the first container will be delivered as scheduled.
- 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.
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.
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.
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 😉
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.
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.
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.

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.
