The new FUSION freeride wing marks a paradigm shift in performance. Tailored to riders seeking higher speeds, dynamic jump and flight potential along with previously impossible angles up and downwind.
-RAM AIR TECHNOLOGY, 100% DOUBLE SURFACE, INTERNAL RIBS
Our efforts for this project centred around optimal aerofoil design, leading us to the efficient, but difficult to achieve, double surface design. We were left exploring ways to overcome both the structural challenges and the manufacturing intricacies.
Initially, the primary task of being able to find an immediate sense of improved performance and usability remained difficult to deliver…
We remained committed and continued our work. Through innovative construction techniques and the “ram air” principles integral to wingsuits, we’ve achieved a design that presents the wing and kite sector with a revolutionary perspective.
BETWEEN THE SHEETS
The Fusion wing is designed around the high-performance planform of the Flux, including the pre-loaded leading edge, which is made with stiff performance dacron and experiences drastically less deformation in strong conditions.
The 100% double surface ram air design creates an enclosed high pressure space between the entire upper and lower surfaces. The internal rib structure supports both sail layers and helps the wing smoothly deal with dynamic pressure differentials when the wing’s angle-of-attack changes.
When the air travels over a wing it splits at the stagnation point on the leading edge. While the air that runs along the top surface has a clean and continuous surface to follow, the airflow on the bottom of a single surface wing creates vortices behind the leading edge. This turbulent underside flow creates drag which reduces performance.
