The PRO canopy is built using the super tough & low-stretch X-ply technology. X-ply is the latest development in our quest to improve wing performance through superior materials.
X-ply is a composite material that has 20.5x less bias distortion compared to regular canopy materials – meaning it has minimal stretch or warp and therefore significantly reduces wing deformation. This high-strength composite also has a 6x higher total failure tolerance under extreme load versus traditional composite materials used in wing canopies.
X-ply creates a durable, taught and fast wing canopy that doesn’t stretch over its lifetime and is extra locked in for racing. The X-ply material is designed for impact, so it is able to take on a beating from boards and foils which normally would destroy a canopy.
Developed in conjunction with Challenge Sailcloth, Ho’okipa™ is a unique composite built with a reliable woven structure, supercharged through Ultra-PE fibres, which are 32x stronger than polyester at the same weight. This tensile strength allows a Ho’okipa™ leading edge & strut to be inflated to significantly higher pressures, creating a wing that is lighter and more responsive than anything else on the market.
The high-pressure leading edge has a reduced diameter for minimum drag and higher speeds.
SIZES: 3m / 4m / 5m / 6m
LOW STRETCH X-PLY CANOPY
The X-Ply canopy provides super stability, combined with the lightness of Ho’okipa makes the wing a dream to handle through manoeuvres allowing for maximum race performance.
The durability of the X-ply means it doesn’t warp over time like a traditional canopy maintaining performance throughout the lifetime of the product.
REDUCED WEIGHT HO’OKIPA AIRFRAME
Developed in conjunction with Challenge Sailcloth, the Ho’okipa Ultra PE fabric is 25% lighter than traditional Dacron leading-edge materials.
The reduced diameter structures and optimized details result in an overall weight saving of up to 30%.
The reduced weight keeps the wing flying even in the lightest conditions incredibly well and responds quickly to rider input.
HIGH PRESSURE LEADING EDGE
Able to run over 2x the pressure of the equivalent size AIR V2 the leading edge of the PRO has been reduced in diameter compared to the NITRO to minimize drag whilst still maintaining amazing stiffness to provide a strong low end.
INCREASE ASPECT RATIO
Helps to generate a more efficient wing giving you more power in all conditions.
NEW HIGH TENSION WING TIPS
Offer improved strength and rigidity under extreme loading improving upwind performance.
EXTRA STIFF STRUT
Helps to reduce deflection under loading keeping the canopy tight and stable in any conditions.
Allow you maximum flexibility to find the optimum handle position for the conditions and are easy to grab when starting.
The bag fits both the PRO wing and the pump with ease. It also comes with carrying straps for your convenience.
