Ultimate race foil.
IKA registered formula kite.
Airush-Starboard Gold Foil specifically developed for Formula Kite class racing with the primary goal being the foil of choice for the 2024 Olympic Games. The design brief was brief. No compromise all out performance, using the absolute latest in technology, materials, and testing, to deliver extreme control, speed, and smoothness when racing in the lightest to the most extreme conditions.
Front Wing: 570cm2
Box: Tuttle box requiring 56mm vertical height measured at front of box.
Full length mast to glider connector shims for adjusting the Angle of Attack (AoA) of stabilizer relative to front wing. These shims provide customization of foil to match riders preference, ability and wind conditions. The shims allow adjustment from number I shim (easier riding/more front foot pressure) down to number V shim (points higher upwind, faster, less front foot pressure).
The mast is split into an upper “dry” zone extending 300mm below the underside of the board, where it is thicker, below is the “wet” zone where the mast tapers from 12mm thickness down to its narrowest 11.5mm close to the glider.
The extremely stiff upper dry zone provides support to the wet zone giving an overall super-stiff mast with over 85% of the wet zone under 12mm thickness! The result is a super-stiff smooth mast with incredible feedback to the rider, but displaying extremely low drag resistance.
Mast tapers from full Tuttle width of 155mm to 110mm near the glider, with the centroid of section fully aligned along its length, resulting in zero secondary torsion or bending induced stresses normally arising from curved masts in compression. This translates to direct control and feedback of the glider 1.15m below the rider’s feet.
