*This wing includes a bag, leash, and wing.*
Our key focus with the Osprey was to design a Wing that is easy to handle. With this in mind, we wanted to excel on downwinders and waves riding. A stiff frame provides a stable platform, giving excellent power delivery when pumping. The rapid lift and acceleration lifts you up and onto the foil sooner. This has been achieved by finely tuning the leading edge diameter specifically
for each size. The medium aspect ratio and rounded wingtips keep the wing out the water and in the air, while giving a light flying sensation. Multiple handles offer intuitive hand placement on any tack. We’ve spent a lot of time getting the handles positioned perfectly. The handles themselves are constructed out of a UHMWPE cover with soft internal cushioning. The Handles are carefully placed and sized to allow for easy transitions. The front handle is spaced and sized to prevent overflying when transitioning, resulting in perfect control of the wing. We have incorporated harness loops on the handles for those wishing to use a harness. A handle on the leading edge offers easy handling if the wing becomes inverted, or for holding the wing in a wind neutral position. The small Y handles are placed to control the Yaw when jumping or when lifting up the wing from the water when launching. The Dihedral angle has been further refined to give and better airflow and canopy tension. This results in a much tighter canopy profile. We have improved the wind range dramatically of the wing.
