Fanatic release the new Aero Glide carbon (and alu) foil range

Fanatic release their new high aspect, glide loving wing range…


The Aero Glide is our long anticipated wing complementing our portfolio with a highly efficient high aspect design, offering endless glide, downwind performance and pumping abilities, crossed with a lively and fun maneuverability you wouldn't expect from wings with such span.

As the name suggests – our Aero Glide is made to glide for long distances effortlessly without much input needed once you're up in flight mode. Coming in four sizes from the fast and agile 725 to the endless glide of the 1305, the range covers different rider sizes and abilities and is complemented by our highly performant new GL Stabilizer in 165, 180 and 200.

It's not only the glide itself our design team put their focus on; It's the blend of low drag, efficient pumping and exciting and predictable turning, which separates the Aero Glide from other high aspect designs out there.

Our engineers have been analyzing each section of the wing and optimized the thickness, profile and layup over its entire span. With high structural strength in the center and gradual twist towards the tips, the Aero Glide offers instant response, yet shines with surprisingly loose and fun turning for such a wide span with an aspect ratio of 9.5.

With emphasis on efficiency, speed and low drag these wings like to be ridden with a slightly more active riding style that suits the level of intermediate to advanced riders. That said, once in flight mode, they are very intuitive to ride thanks to their predictable behavior.

Whether you're into downwind runs, connecting waves when prone foiling or just like a fast and effortless sensation with low drag and high efficiency when winging – you should have a go on the Aero Glide!

Aero Glide Wing sets:

  • Aero Glide 725: 725 Front Wing / 165 GL Stabilizer
    Fast and agile for all lighter riders and advanced foilers up to about 85kg, loves to go fast!
  • Aero Glide 905: 905 Front Wing / 180 GL Stabilizer
    Offers a great combination of speed, manoeuvrability, glide and pump covering riders between 50-95kg
  • Aero Glide 1085: 1085 Front Wing / 200 GL Stabilizer
    Great pump and glide. Also a good choice in smaller surf. Mid sized to heavier riders with intermediate to advanced level will love the efficiency and of this combo
  • Aero Glide 1305: 1305 Front Wing / 200 GL Stabilizer
    Glides without much input and is really easy to keep up for heavier riders with intermediate to advanced level

Combine the Aero Glide with our Carbon Mast & Fuselage for the ultimate performance:
Our engineering team went through intense R&D running all sorts of simulations with attention to detail and countless hours of on-water testing. We wanted to make sure these Carbon masts and fuselages not only feel solid and perform to the expected level, they also need to handle the forces of those riders pushing the air game and hold and control wide span wings. With 5 masts lengths and 3 fuselages this range offers the dream combo for any foiler out there.

Choose your Carbon mast length and Carbon fuselage depending on your skills, preferred discipline and the conditions.
