The BIC Windsurf Foil has been custom-designed for the Techno 130 Foil board, with various objectives in mind : easy accessibility, early take-off, high performance and easy control “in flight”.
We have also selected a French manufacturer that uses only “aviation quality” carbon fibre, to ensure maximum rigidity and excellent durability. To achieve those aims, our supplier Foil and Co has chosen a pre-preg carbon fibre compressed under 8 bars of pressure with a high fibre content (65%). This process/combination guarantees unparalleled rigidity and excellent strength.
Mast : hollow structure with integral central reinforcement bar, chosen for its high level of rigidity comparable to a solid-section mast, bus very much lighter weight.
Fuselage : the fuselage is solid, single section 100% carbon fibre. This enables a rock-solid connection to the front wing and rear stabiliser without risk of deforming under the levering pressure of the mast/wings.
Front wing section : this has a relatively thin profile and a wide “gull-wing” shape, giving a large lift-surface. This, combined with a highly efficient rear stabiliser, gives plenty of power and an early take-off, and avoids the risk of stalling at high speed.
The Techno foil has great stability at high speed, is efficient up-wind, and is equally comfortable ridden either flat or on a serious angle. It’s a highly forgiving foil that enables beginners to enjoy the foil ride experience quickly and easily, and allows more experienced riders to go much further including competition sailing.
