The original eFoil brand release the new and highly upgraded incarnations of their successful electric foils, with the Lift 2 and Lift 3 available from today, and their top-of-the-range Lift 3 Elite, their most advanced foil to date, available to ship from June. Here’s the full release from Lift themselves…
AGUADILLA, PUERTO RICO [March 29, 2021]– Lift Foils, the world’s leading eFoil company, today announces the launch of its 2021 eFoil lineup. Lift Foils has spent over a decade creating extraordinary foiling experiences and released its original eFoil in 2018. The eFoil is a surfboard powered by an advanced lithium-ion battery and electric propulsion system that allows riders to levitate over water. As the first company to bring this groundbreaking watercraft to market, Lift continues to push boundaries at the forefront of a worldwide revolution in surf with its newest eFoil lineup.
Lift’s 2021 eFoil board lineup includes the LIFT2, LIFT3 (both now available for purchase), and the LIFT3 Elite (shipping in June 2021), granting riders an enjoyable personalized experience and the sensation of surfing and flying all in one. The eFoil is easy for people of all athletic capabilities to learn, and with five-day global shipping, anyone can effortlessly experience the incredible sensation of soaring over the water. The 2021 lineup’s enhancements and varying price points make it all that much better.
After three years of board design and customer feedback, the LIFT3 has now officially come to life. The LIFT3 is the most advanced and innovative eFoil yet and offers best-in-class specifications across all product categories: durability, weight, maneuverability, battery life, customization, and speed.
The LIFT3 boards are made from a proprietary carbon fiber blend engineered specifically for eFoil performance. They also feature enhanced carbon masts and upgraded carbon fiber electronic boxes. Lift Foils has always offered the most durable eFoils, but the new carbon fiber build makes the LIFT3 50% stronger, for truly best-in-class durability.
New board sizes
The LIFT3 boards come in four new sizes: 4’2 Pro, 4’9 Sport, 5’4 Cruiser, 5’9 Explorer. These boards feature an updated shape for increased aerodynamics and maneuverability. Combined with the upgraded construction, the new sizes reduce the weight by 30% making the LIFT3 boards the lightest eFoil options on the market.
Dynamic wing options
Lift has also launched nine new wings as part of its 2021 lineup, including three of its acclaimed high aspect wings. Carefully crafted for effectiveness, stability, and performance, the wings attach to the eFoil mast. The shape of the wing changes the eFoil riding experience offering a true balance between efficiency and turning. All wings are interchangeable across the LIFT2 and LIFT3 and work for multiple foil disciplines, including surfing, eFoiling, or sailing, allowing Lift to provide the most customizable eFoil experience.
Enhanced electronics and propulsion
The LIFT3 electronics and propulsion system has been completely upgraded for enhanced speed and efficiency. Like former models, the LIFT3 is still electric-powered and noise- and emissions-free, to minimize disturbing the environment. The new eFoils are the fastest models out there with 30mph ride speeds, and have the longest-lasting battery life, offering 2 hours of ride time.
The LIFT3 is available for purchase on Lift’s website for $12,000* and via Lift resellers and affiliates, and begins shipping on March 29th, 2021. All of the new wings and accessories are also compatible with the existing LIFT2, which is now available at a new lower price of $10,900.
Shipping in June 2021, the LIFT3 Elite will be the most sophisticated eFoil in the market. These boards will incorporate the same updates as the LIFT3, as well as an upgraded carbon fiber hand controller with a soft rubber grip, an adjustable milled titanium trigger, and a colored display with speed and GPS location functions to pair nicely with the company’s improved app.
These boards will also have an enhanced carbon fiber prop and shroud, featuring a quick-release mechanism that allows for swapping various components in seconds with no hardware needed. The tailored cases that come with the LIFT3 Elite are lightweight with high-performance removable wheels, all of which can be easily broken down for storage. The LIFT3 Eliteboards and accompanying accessories will come at a $14,000* price tag.
Lift Founder and CEO Nick Leason notes, “Even though 2020 brought a lot of uncertainty, our eFoils continued to create exceptional experiences for riders everywhere, as people were able to get out there to explore and enjoy nature while staying socially distant. We’re constantly evolving and innovating, and we’re ecstatic about bringing the LIFT3 to market. Our most advanced and sophisticated eFoil yet gives our community of fans and riders around the world more choices to carve out unique adventures.”
