Description

The Wing Plus Limited Edition is the steroid version of our Original Wing.

More power with a more pronounced and hollow canopy with an additional panel between the Center Strut and the spinnaker. This panel allowed us to reduce the diameter of the Center Strut because it is no longer forced to follow the profile. The weight loss is significant.

More visibility with its Windows, ideally placed to attack the jibes with confidence. Windows are not useful in navigation because we look ahead, not under. But to take a look without having to raise your Wing before the jibe is a real plus.

The combination of the deeper trough and PVC windows gives incredible stability to the Wing Plus. While L’Ours was designing this Wing, he marked the hollow section to keep it well in front of the rider. The Original Wings mission is to facilitate the practice. It flows very naturally when flattened out. This is not the role of the Plus that is for demanding practitioners. You want some power: go for the Plus!!!

In practice, it is about 5nds of earned in low range for the bigger guys with the Wing Plus Vs the Wing Original. It’s huge. As soon as you pick it up, you feel a firmer wing, more present, more powerful.

Generalities on the Wing:

The Wing has an inflatable structure directly in the hands of the rider. Its Handles control the flight and power delivered.

The number one asset of the Wing is its smoothness. Much less powerful than a Kite and much less heavy than a Windsurf Sail, the Wing lightly relaxes you.

Ideal when used with a Foil machine, it is much more reassuring than a Kite and much more manageable than a Windsurf Sail.

With its soft glide, you take the gusts without flinching as it absorbs everything for you. So, no need harness because its flexible structure is deformed to naturally discharge the excess power.

Ideal with a Foil, it requires more air than a Kite that will always have the advantage of towing a lot from 4/5 knots. The Wing will need between 10 and 15 knots to express itself on a Foil and will remain super easy even in 35 knots, where the Kite often goes with big risk taking.

It’s great with multiple media such as:

  • Stand Up Paddle “SUP” (rigid or inflatable)
  • SUPfoil
  • Surfoil
  • Skate
  • Rollerblading
  • Mountain board
  • Everything that slides on the snow

The strengths of the Wing are clearly identified: simplicity, compactness and lightness it provides unparalleled freedom of movement and ease of handling. The Wing is ready to fly in 1min flat: no lines to unwind, simply two flexible slats to insert in their sheath, a few pump strokes and go.

The technology used to make the Wings is very similar to that of our Kitesurf Kites. Reinforcements are present on the zones of efforts according to the different uses.

The shape of the Wing is “self-stabilizing”. Do not imagine directing it by the force of your hands on a wishbone: it does not work like that. You lower your back hand: The Wing is lying flat over your head. You climb it up and the Wing goes up. Easy!

Shape

  • Dihedral Shape: Wing self stabilising.
  • Compact and lightweight: easy handling.
  • A more pronounced and hollow canopy with an additional panel between the Center Strut and the spinnaker for power.
  • Large diameter Leading Edge: maintains the structure.
  • Wide tips for maintaining power but in advanced position which limits wear drag.

Stock Dimensions

  • Leading Edge and inflatable Center Bladder.​
  • 3 grip handles on the leading edge.
  • Handles on the inflatable center blade (the number of handles depends on the wing’s size).
  • 4 small windows.
  • A leash attachment.
  • Large diameter screw valve and One Pump Express System: super easy to inflate / deflate at lightning speed.
  • 2 sheaths for intermediate fiberglass struts.
  • Anti Friction Canopy reinforcement in front of the valve.
  • PVC reinforcements 1680D on the tips.

Innovation is at the core of our Boards

The GONG Wings are manufactured in one of the two biggest kite factories in the world using the highest quality standards.

Fabricated with the greatest care. The panels are cut using CNC and entirely assembled and sown by hand by the best artisans in the kite industry.

The materials used are by far the most noble. We demand are look for performance but also endurance and longevity and also materials that have proven themselves.

  • High quality double rip-stop, Teijin T9670 (high stiffness, long lasting performances).
  • Skeleton DP175LL: Leading Edge and tips are built in this fantastic stiff and solid fabric that keeps the wing like a real skeletal structure. Nervousness, stability, durability. (the most rigid of the market and also the most expensive)
  • Bladders TPU 0,1mm : un-failing reliability.

Buying guide

Le choix de la taille (3, 4, 5 ou 7m2) dépend de votre poids et de la force du vent dans laquelle vous souhaitez évoluer. Votre taille importe peu car l’angle idéal de l’aile est proche de 45°. Dans une utilisation avec un SUPfoil, voici ce que nous préconisons :

En changeant de support, vous pouvez étendre largement ces plages d’utilisation. Par exemple : une balade à la cool avec un SUP est géniale avec un vent très léger, tout comme débuter dans un esprit windsurf pour tirer des bords.

Included equipments

  • High quality Wing bag, with thick foam padding and large U shaped opening for no-hassle packing.
  • Rapid bladder repair kit.
  • 2 x fiberglass struts.

Warning:

You must read the detailed user manual completely before using your Wing for the first time.

Be sure to have a full understanding of it. Wings can be dangerous depending on their size and the strength of the wind. You have to check the wind range of your wing so that it corresponds with conditions and your actual skill level.

For the first few sessions, never use your new Wing in its high wind range. Use your Wing in a secure environment. Take the necessary time to learn how to handle the equipment under optimum safety conditions. Never underestimate the traction power of your Wing. Even a beginner’s Wing can develop a pulling force of several hundred kilos depending on its size and the strength of the wind. Do not overestimate your abilities. Misuse can cause serious injury or death to the practitioner or others. Do not use your Wing at sea in offshore winds. Use your Wing equipped with a leash. Be careful to avoid any collision. Be extremely careful if you sail with your Wing and a board equipped with a foil. The manufacturer declines all responsibility for damage or damage caused by improper use of the Wing or carelessness of the user.
