Wing Air

All-Around Wing

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.

The Archetype

Less but better.

Launching a new product into a young sport is an honor and comes with the responsibility to define a part of its future.

While the initial urge to be loud and bold, both as riders and as a brand, is strong, we strive to keep a modern and tasteful approach in both engineering and design.

We hope you will feel just as enthusiastic as us to represent these new wings and this new sport.

Aloha,

Jason Diffin

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?
