Turn a blown out, slightly windy day, into an epic surf session of endless waves, with the all new Wing Air wing.
Likewise, turn a day of mediocre swell, and no hope for more on the horizon, into pure smiles all day. The Wing Air is equally suited for serious waveriding, as it feels at home on miniature sandbar breaks, or even no breaks at all, flying across lakes and bays, any body of water really, as long as there’s a hint of wind.
World championship winning sailmaker Jason Diffin brings a wealth of over 25 years of experience to wing design, in creating this next chapter of rigs.
Lightness, performance and durability are the key design parameters behind the Wing Air wing. When riding, you want a wing to power you up, then disappear instantly in your hands, so you can glide and execute your maneuvers effortlessly.
The Wing Air’s curve profile and leading edge bladder diameter varies through the size range, to deliver low-end power to get you up and going, stability to let you hammer upwind/downwind and control through jumps, and the easy ability to let the wing drift neutral, all while focusing on ensuring the wing tips hardly ever get in the water’s way, due to cleverly refined proportion and geometry.
An innovative handle configuration provides maximum precision trimming options as well as increases overall wing rigidity.
Countless days over the last two years of testing with our pro team on Maui, in Hood River, and Tarifa have been spent, relentlessly tweaking the Wing Air to be the first wing period that we all truly love. The Wing Air provides a stable, extremely forward drive, yet instantaneously can become perfectly neutral when riding waves, swells, and through transitions.
Ultra light and ultra durable, the Wing Air is constructed with Dimension Polyant bi-axial ripstop dacron with kevlar patch reinforcements in the leading edge and center strut, and triple bi-axial ripstop canopy. This delivers the absolute best combination of low weight and high structural integrity to keep your wing solid, stable, and providing direct feedback from the wind, to rider, to foil, for session after session after session.
Two filler valves allow precise inflation control and simplicity through the leading edge and strut.
Wrist leash included.
Every wing gets inflated 5 times at the factory and gets left inflated overnight the last time, to ensure that not a single wing leaves the factory with a leak.
Ultra Light Canopy Construction.
Available in 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0 squaremeters.
Available in Fluo Orange or Olive.
Avec la toute nouvelle wing Wing Air, transformez une journée de vent léger en une session de surf épique dans des vagues qui n’en finissent plus.
De même, transformez une journée de swell médiocre où vous n’avez plus d’espoirs de voir les conditions s’améliorer, en une journée de pur bonheur. La Wing Air s’adapte autant au wave-riding sérieux, qu’à des bancs de sable avec des mini-vagues ou sans vagues, en survolant les lacs et les baies, ou sur n’importe quel plan d’eau tant qu’il y a un soupçon de vent.
Jason Diffin, le champion du monde en conception de voiles, apporte plus de 25 années d’expériences et de connaissances à la conception des wings, pour la création de ce nouveau chapitre de gréements.
Légèreté, performance et durabilité sont les paramètres clés de la conceptions de la Wing Air. Lorsque vous ridez, vous voulez une wing qui vous propulse, puis qui disparaît instantanément dans vos mains pour vous permettre de glisser et d’exécuter vos manœuvres sans efforts.
Le profil de cambrure et le diamètre du bord d’attaque de la Wing Air varient dans la gamme de tailles de sorte à fournir la puissance à bas régime pour le décollage, la stabilité vous permettant de bien caper au près/vent arrière, le contrôle pour les sauts, la facilité de voler avec la wing neutre, tout en veillant à ce que les extrémités de la wing ne touchent presque jamais l’eau, grâce à des proportions et de la géométrie astucieusement étudiées.
Une configuration de poignée innovante offre des options de réglage d’une précision maximale et augmente la rigidité globale de la wing.
Ces deux dernières années, notre team pro a passé d’innombrables jours à Maui, Hood River et Tarifa à tester et peaufiner sans relâche la Wing Air afin qu’elle devienne la toute première gamme de wing que nous chérissons tous. La Wing Air offre une conduite stable et une propulsion avant, et peut instantanément devenir parfaitement neutre lors de la navigation dans des vagues, du swell ou lors des transitions.
Ultra légère et très résistante, la Wing Air est construite avec du dacron (Dimension Polyant) bi-axial anti-déchirure avec des patchs de renforts kevlar sur le bord d’attaque et la latte centrale, et un tissu anti-déchirure triple bi-axial. Cela offre le meilleur combo de légèreté et d’une intégrité structurelle de qualité qui garde votre wing solide, stable, et fournit un retour direct du vent au rider et au foil, session après session.
Deux valves de remplissage permettent un contrôle de gonflage précis et simple par le bord d’attaque et la latte centrale.
Leash de poignet inclu.
Construction de Toile Ultra Légère.
Disponible en 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0 mètres carrés.
Disponible en Olive ou Orange Neon.

Hi Jason, I am loving the wings. I am now using a full size smaller. When everyone is on 5 I am with the 4. Transitions super quick, love the handles. I slide the front hand a lot, when back crates a lot of lift for jumps. It feels crisp in the water.
I don’t know how will you be able to improve this one!
You need presence in Colombia. I have the only 2 KT wings here!
Hi guys, today I used both the 4 and 3 wings.
Honestly way better than my Wasps. Love the handles, especially the front one that goes to the leading edge.
When surfing flies great, towards the end I didn’t even look at it. Super stable.
Even overpowered was always well behaved.
Great upwind and super quick in transition.
I tested this wing 3 weeks ago. I am wingfoiling for 1.5 year now. My quiver is pretty up to date with other 2022 wings. Still as soon as I tested the 3.0 KT Wing Air I knew I was holding *tomorrow\'s* wing design. And I left the session thinking that my other 2022 wings were *yesterday\'s* wings. Lol!
A few days ago I went ahead and got the 3.0 and enjoyed a fine session yesterday, paired with my 90L Quatro Wingdrifter and Sabfoil 999/93 riding small bumps in high winds. Never did I feel out of sorts, overwhelmed etc. The wing just added to my confidence. Getting going is super easy and once up the wing feels a bit like a Goya Fringe! Love it! Can\'t wait for the next session!
Hi team, happy 5th, hope you survived the weekend!
I had the opportunity to try the 62 and 38 ltr and loved them both. On top of it all, the KT Wings are amazing, got on the 3/4/5m this weekend and find the forward positioning on the front handle to be a key feature with the sinker starts.
Had a few fun days out at Fort Point in the SF Bay recently!
I went all in on the full quiver 2.5m through 6m. I've been very pleased with the performance and durability of the wings. The WingAir has a sweet design and is unmistakeable on the water. It's got excellent low end and feels very grunty on the pop-up. I ride with a low volume (sinker board) so this low end is critical for me to be able to plane and get on foil. The WingAir drifts like a total champ. When riding on swell or on a boat wake, it's almost as if the wing isn't even there. Grinding up wind the wing has solid power and is steady and stable in the wind window. I love that the WingAir comes with harness lines. I use them every session. All the accessories are excellent, from the bags the WingAir comes in, to the extra strips of tape the same color as the wing, for those unfortunate instances when the foil skewers the wing. I'm stoked to get out on the water every session with the WingAir!

Feels light as a feather while riding, yet powerful. Super rigid frame makes it easy and efficient to pump and get going, fingertip control, gives plenty of good feedback, so the riding never gets boring, possible to ride holding the wing with just one hand only (not many wings can do that), etc. Well done you all.
I just got a 3m and 4m KT and I absolutely love them! The pumping power even in light conditions is incredible. I was able to get on foil with a 4m in 12kts, and haven't touched my other 5m since. The handles are really well balanced, and the front handle connects directly to the leading edge providing precise power transfer and control. The handles are thin and the pretty tight but this makes them easy to hold and improves the power transfer too! They float perfectly while surfing, and who doesn't love a neon orange wing?? When over powered they don't belly out and luff in your face, and with the long handles you can slide your hands forward and depower super easily. 11/10 would reccomend.
The thought and detail that's gone into the new KT wings is really apparent. The 4m I rode was one of the best all around wings I've tried yet. I found both low and high end to be excellent, the frame is stiff and very stable and most important, forgettable both flagged out and powered up (my highest compliment!). Loved the light handling and the handle/straps work really well. This V1 has taken many attributes of the best current wings on the market and incorporated them. Amazing job!
I like the diagonal handles. Intrigued by your new wings,How rigid is the canopy? How balanced and forgiving is the shape accross the models?
