Exciting third generation arrival for SIC's popular Raptor wing… Here's the news in full.
Developed in close collaboration between our esteemed athletes and talented designers, the Raptor Wing V3 represents a significant upgrade to our Raptor wings. The V3 features a lower aspect ratio shape, accompanied by increased segmented support along the leading edge, resulting in power, enhanced wing control during turns, and improved stability for free-flying and wave riding.
Notable enhancements include a redesigned center strut shape with mini booms, providing ergonomic comfort and efficient power management for optimal pumping efficiency. Additionally, incorporating new windows ensures improved safety and compliance with upcoming racing safety requirements. The wing also boasts stiffer, more durable fabrics and enhanced paneling alignments, reducing fluttering during flight and extending the overall longevity of the wing.
SIC’s enhanced ExoTex leading-edge material offers a lightweight solution with improved tensile strength and durability, enabling it to withstand the rigorous forces and stresses experienced during flight without compromising weight. This strength is essential for preserving the structural integrity of the inflatable wing, enabling it to endure aerodynamic forces and retain its intended shape. Its low stretch properties also ensure that the fabric remains steadfast, maintaining its shape and size even when exposed to high pressures and heavy loads.
SIC’s high-performance Triple Dura-Force canopy has also been enhanced, improving breaking strength, tear resistance, UV protection, elongation, and overall durability. Feel the tight, crisp signature only a Dura-Force built wing delivers.
Casi Rynkowski, SIC Global Brand Manager, expressed her excitement about the new Raptor Wing V3 stating, “The Raptor Wing V3 represents a true leap forward in performance for SIC. We are thrilled to offer our customers a wing that combines power – literally at your fingertips, speed, and stability like never before. The collaborative efforts between our athletes and designers have resulted in a wing that puts SIC on the map for performance in the wing-foiling world. The Raptor Wing V3, accompanied by our cutting-edge Slash foil systems featuring the innovative flip fuselage and the high-performance foilboards meticulously crafted by Mark Raaphorst, completes a comprehensive performance wing foiling package. This exceptional combination is sure to be embraced by top riders.”
