The AFS 85 benefits from the same mast profile design as the AFS 95 and from 2020> we are delighted to announce that it is available as standard with our remarkable F-800 front wing on the Bonded Mast to Fuselage model!

Its shorter mast makes it the most accessible foil in our range. By reducing its drag this foil does not require flying high while also making launching and landing more comfortable.

The F-800 wing supplied with this model for the first time, is optimized to bring really easy access, excellent control and great wind range to the moderately short but dynamic AFS 85, making this the perfect foil for many beginners to experienced riders, looking for a great foil for most conditions and locations.

The AFS F-800 has been hugely popular as a light wind upgrade with its very wide wind range and ease of use.

On paper, this wing at 1120cm2 does not look huge by current standards, but thanks to its excellent 'medium aspect' lift to drag ratio, rock solid construction, and delightful handling, (in our UK tests) we have found it's take off speed is within a knot of the big 1700 cm2 'low aspect cruising wings' from several well-known brands, who also want to sell you dedicated boards to go with them!

Unlike these bigger wings though, the F-800 will happily run into the mid 20 knots board speed range for most riders with no need to tweak the Stabiliser angle once it's really getting fun.

The W85-F800 will make easy for you to use a smaller sail than you expect, making it really easy to live with 1 to 2 forces change in wind speeds while you are out, sometimes miles from your starting point - all things to really consider when selecting a foil to invest in for use in our very gusty and changeable weather conditions, making the W85/F800 the perfect choice to do everything you probably want from a foil - from absolute beginner, to highly capable rider, this foil is well able to keep most people having "foiling fun for many years to come" and we cannot recommend it highly enough!


The Fuselage is the same as the W95 and W105, making all suitable AFS wings interchangeable.

The W85 is now lighter and even stiffer thanks to our new 85cm Hollow Mast (just like the W95/W105 range) for 2020 in the UK, all our W85's will have Bonded and Carbon Pinned Mast to Fuselage joint (just like the W95 and W105) for exceptional performance and durability. (Screw together Mast/Fuselage can still be special ordered if you really need it to be compact for travel?)

The rationale behind this decision, led by the UK:

We have found that many of our customers want the ultimate in simplicity, as well as performance, which includes running the very powerful and capable F-800 front wing!

We received frequent request for the "T" shape bag as a spare part from owners who do not want to dissemble their foil in the way they expected when first purchasing - Indeed many are storing with the wings on as well, which the "T bag" is designed to allow, so we have responded to these requests for the simplest to assemble, stiffest & strongest set up possible to be available on the W85 as well.

The added bonus is that our biggest and most powerful "W series" wings can be run on the Bonded W85 and still deliver full performance in all circumstances where the extra mast height of the W95/W105 is not critical, as the Bonded Mast to Fuselage joint does not have even the small amount of clearance needed to take the items apart for very compact storage, meaning you will maintain the perfect stability / trajectories / Vmax ratio we are so well known for with our full range of wings, as well as the current recommended range for the dismountable W85.

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", not least, because of their very balanced design and outstanding construction, AFS foils deliver amazing performance on just about every make and model of boards!

The 2020> Hollow Mast W85 sets entirely new standards for such an accessible price while still being 100% 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 4.2kg complete (depending on the wings you are running of course, it can be well under 4kg).

Please remember we design, test and build all our foils in Brest, France, 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.
