Carbon K2 Foil
Introduced last year the K2 foil introduced new levels of stability and control in a foil that was fast, easy to use and incredibly pitch stable. For 2020 we raise the bar once again by offering this foil with our all new Carbon composite mast.
With more than 2 years R and D and over 30 prototypes made it would be fair to say the quest to find the perfect carbon mast was a little more complicated than it first appeared. Not content with simply building a “black foil” we’ve held back from releasing anything until every box was ticked.
Why are carbon foils special? Stiffness, stiffness and more stiffness (plus a little less weight). During foiling the rider is up to 1 metre above the foil, it’s long distance control, 1cm of flex at wing level is magnified by a factor of X to where you stand – imagine trying to push a button with a 1m long flexible stick or driving a car with flat tyres, each control input you make is magnified and delayed causing instability and even the most talented riders to wobble. If your serious about foiling and want to raise your game to the next level carbon is the only way forwards.
Built using our proprietary hi-modulus, multi-axial carbon sandwich construction and featuring an innovative new Hollow-Tech integrated mounting plate with fast mount slide on/off fasteners. This foil uses a dedicated fuselage but is compatible with all existing Shinn wings and stabilisers.
