GONG WING FOIL ALLVATOR RISE ALU
Learn to fly in wing foiling and progress quickly and without stress.
Learn to fly in wing foiling and progress quickly and without stress.
This foil Rise is the easiest to progress in wing foiling.
Generous but without excess, they fly at very low speed, which is reassuring and allows you to complete maneuvers without being afraid. No need to overspeed to enjoy the Rise, you fly relaxed and you feel comfortable very quickly.
The low ratio naturally reduces speed and increases tolerance. It’s ideal for feeling safe. The foil does not start at 25 knots as soon as you climb on it to catapult you into an uncontrollable fall. On the contrary, the Rise is gentle and simple. Be careful, it’s quite fast enough for a beginner because it will naturally go much faster than a surfboard! It’s not a turtle 😉 It’s simply adapted to the needs of a beginner who will regularly fly at very low speeds due to mistakes. And there the Rise will save you from losing the flight.
A super reassuring wing in flight, but also in handling, so that your beginnings are really simple.
The voluminous shape of our wings favors low speed flight. You can push them above 20 knots without difficulty, but that’s not the point. A beginner feels good at 12 knots. Beyond, the falls are spectacular and you better see them coming. So we calibrated the Rise flight to be optimal around those 12 knots.
Seen from the front, the Rise is arched so that the tips do not pierce the water and cause it to stall. This is a big plus for beginners who have trouble gauging their height. And the profile adopted is hyper tolerant so that it erases all the approximations of the beginnings.
Several wing sizes accommodate different builds and different speeds.
- The L has a wingspan of 80 cm for a (projected) area of 1643cm² (1926cm² developed), and its volume is 3.12L. The surface area is important with a very forgiving profile of 3.5cm thick. Mounted with a 45cm Rise Stab of 378cm² and 0.19L. This foil is for riders under 75kg.
- The XL has a wingspan of 90 cm for a (projected) area of 1844cm² (2137cm² developed), and its volume is 3.60L. The surface area is important with a very forgiving profile of 3.5cm thick. Mounted with a 45cm Rise Stab of 378cm² and 0.19L. This foil is for riders over 75kg.
- The foil consists of a Rise front wing with a 45 cm Rise Stabilizer.
- The 90cm Allvator Original aluminum mast and the fuselage will offer you nice perfs for an ultra tight price.
- The 4-hole plate, with standard center distances, will offer you a perfect connection between your foil and your board.
- The complete screw kit with tightening key is supplied. Everything is delivered in a very practical transport bag to store and transport your dismantled foil.
Masts, plate and fuselage are made of aluminum for a reasonable price. The stiffness-to-weight ratio of aluminum is really interesting: don’t see any limits.
Our Rise wings are made of 80% Fiberglass and 20% Prepreg 3K Carbon, with over 15 layers of fiber in total. An economical fiberglass-dominated technology made possible by the large thickness which mechanically will limit the flex. No need for a high dose of carbon for the Rise to be stiff. High stress points like joints and connections are reinforced with Kevlar to resist tearing and glass for tolerance. High pressure and high temperature molded on a foam core, our wings are virtually indestructible. Both rigid and floaty, 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 this. Likewise, the trailing edges are blunt so as not to be sharp.
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
GONG Foil Technology:
Our Rise wings are made of 80% Fiberglass and 20% Prepreg 3K Carbon, with over 15 layers of fiber in total. An economical fiberglass-dominated technology that has excellent mechanical properties and allows for a very rigid stab at a great price. 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.
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 to replace 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 full range of use of the foil in every sport and at every level.
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.
You can start smoothly with this foil. Everything is simpler and safer. And in case of breakage you have all the spare parts for a ridiculous price.
This is the foil for beginners, but also for progression. It’s not just a school foil that will peak at your fifth semester.
Flat on the water, you pick up a bit of speed, you sheet in twice on the wing and you can fly. The Rise Foil settles quietly at 10 knots, it goes through all the slack and you can head upwind easily. But if you sheet in, it will go through the 20 knots, still smoothly.
In surfing it’s very simple, soft and easy to handle. Really easy to hook, hard to stall, it is a model of tolerance based on proven profiles in the world of military aviation.
When pumping, you have lift. It’s not a fast foil, but our many videos testify to its qualities. You will pump in a slow rhythm, more on the legs than on the cardio. And above all without error, because the most energy consuming part in pumping are errors.
What size ?
In light wind, we tend to think that the bigger the more efficient. With some nuances, yes that is the rule.
In a steady wind:
- The L is for riders under 75kg.
- The XL is for riders over 75kg.
Remember to play on the stabs to have more or less ease and speed as you progress.
The Rise wing foil is ideal for beginners. It will therefore marry wonderfully with a HIPE, a Lance or a Zuma.
Positioning of the foil?
For the GONG foils, place it in the middle of the US rails.
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.

- We make quality products. We are not “low cost”.

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 😉
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.
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 Board:
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.
