More From AFS-FOILS - HYDROFOILS
An accessible, versatile and scalable foil. Freeride/Progressive
The Wind 85 has one goal: to make Windsurf Foiling great fun and accessible to the greatest number of riders!
The profiles of the Mast, Fuselage and Stabiliser are the same as on the Wind 95, but the mast measures 85cm, the ideal height to begin without undergoing regular touchdowns with the chop and still gain incredible performance - it is proven to be completely suitable for use with all widths of boards from narrow to wide, meaning you are not forced to purchase a dedicated foil board to enjoy all this amazing Windfoil can deliver!
The Fuselage is the same as that of the W95 and W105 apart from the dismountable Mast feature, ensuring super compact storage in the very neat bag provided.
Extensive further development has allowed the W85 to now be supplied with a lighter and even stiffer Hollow Mast (just like the W95/W105 range) but only the W85 in the 'AFS W range' features this dismountable Mast and Fuselage as standard, while still maintaining the perfect stability / trajectories / Vmax ratio we are so well known for with our full range.
The wings are very accessible while being remarkably fast - The standard F700a (access) front wing is designed to give considerably earlier take-off than most, 700 wings, but top speed and control are much better than a dedicated super light-wind early take off wing can be, making the F700a is the ideal front wing to help the majority of riders achieve foiling very easily, while remaining fast and stable as you get better.
The combination of all these features/components provides very comfortable foiling in a wide range of winds/conditions for riders from beginner to experienced, making the W85 very widely recommended as The Perfect Choice for most recreational riders!
This foil is evolutionary, so can be upgraded with any of the wings from the AFS 'W' range if you want to start pushing the envelope.
The 2019> Hollow Mast W85 sets entirely new standards for such an accessible price while still being Full Pre-Preg Carbon Composite construction - Something which is important to consider when comparing with other products, and of course the W85 is now approx. 0.8kg lighter (almost 20%) at just 4.1kg!
As before, remember that we build all our foils without Aluminium or any other materials that can limit performance or rider communication as well as product durability, so you can be sure your ASF W85 foil will not only be a delight to ride, but will be strong and durable, flying really well for a long time.
