Pre-tensioned Sail Pre-tensioning a sail is to achieve a desired shape and control its aerodynamic properties. Pre-tensioning helps to eliminate wrinkles and creases in the sailcloth, allowing for a smoother and more efficient surface. The amount of stretch experienced during use is minimized. This helps maintain the sail's performance over time, as stretching can lead to distortion and reduced efficiency. Maneuvers can be performed playfully and without much loss of speed.
Forward-swept Outline The swept-forward wing design improves maneuverability by facilitating control and increasing agility. It supports reactivity and improves roll and lateral stability. The more forward mass and lightweight wingtips increase acceleration and playfulness and improve top-end control.
Ergonomic Strutshape with Non-Slip Handles The curved strut allows for an ergonomic hold of the handles to position the wrist neutrally to the arm. The non-slip handles have deep ribs and are oval-shaped, providing a comfortable, secure grip. Preventing the wing from slipping out of the user's hands improves control and enables precise steering. Both features help reduce fatigue, which increases water time, allowing users to enjoy extended sessions without discomfort.
Advanced Tip-Flex Advanced tip-flex causes controlled flexibility or bending in the wingtips. This concept enhances performance and improves the wing's efficiency, especially during high-speed runs and maneuvering. By allowing controlled flexibility, the wingtips can absorb and dampen some dynamic forces and gust loads encountered during the session. Air Pressure Separation Understanding and managing the air pressure is essential for achieving desired wing performance, stability, and control. The leading edge and strut of the TAO have to be filled separately to achieve different stiffness levels to maximize your control and direct handling. This way, optimum performance can be achieved, and quick assembly and disassembly are guaranteed.
Enhanced Front Handle We've improved the balance of the wing in free-flight mode. The stiffened front handle resembles a sports steering wheel and enables the wing to be guided precisely without delay. A neoprene patch underlies the handle to increase comfort and improve wing handling when surfing, preventing injury.
