Presentation of the F-One Escape Carbon 530 foil-wing
Designed to foil at high speed with full control whatever the conditions, the Escape 530 offers enough performances to go racing but it’s “raison d’être” is first and foremost to provide the most exilherating ride on the water. Light or strong wind, racing or carving the Escape is a playful, nimble and enjoyable hydrofoil which delivers an amazing glide with a terrific speed potential and upmost control.
Such a level of performance is only possible through the use of a 1-piece monobloc construction where the entire plane (front wing, fuselage, stabilizer) is molded in one-shot out of pre-preg carbon with great craftmanship. The end result is a piece of carbon composite with the best possible strength and stiffness to make sure you are always in control.
|Alu masts 45 > 95 cm|
The F-ONE aluminium mast can be used for all disciplines, kite, surf, stand up paddle, wing foil and windsurf. The profile is extruded with precision from 6063 aluminium block.
* 45 > 95 KITEFOIL
* 55 > 75 SURF / SUP FOIL
* 65 > 75 WING FOIL
* 75 > 85 WIND FOIL
The shape of its section benefits from our years of experience in kitefoiling to provide the best gliding feel while keeping the strength up and the weight down.
It comes with two stainless steel helicoil inserts at the bottom and at the top to fasten the connecting parts and is therefore fully modular.
The aluminium mast can be used on every foil of the range and it is very easy to jump from one length to another (45 / 55 / 65 / 75 / 85 / 95 cm).
A number of parts are available for board connection (Plate, KF, Deep KF, Tuttle).
|Carbon masts 75 > 105 cm|
A true masterpiece of composite craftmanship and design, the F-ONE Carbon Mast was designed to transform your foiling experience by a significant improvement of the glide and a dramatic weight reduction matched with impressive rigidity.
* 75 > 105 KITE FOIL
* 75 SURF / SUP FOIL / WING FOIL
Available in 75 cm, 85 cm and 105 cm, the F-ONE Carbon Mast is ready for all disciplines: surf, wing, kite, SUP. It features a 4-bolt plate at the top (hole spacing: 160×90mm) and an integrated Titan mast foot at the bottom. It can be connected to virtually all boards on the market featuring the twin track system and can receive all the wings and fuselage that feature the TITAN connection slot.
With Pre-preg fabrics, the carbon fiber is directly impregnated with epoxy resin by its manufacturer; this guarantees a perfect ratio between epoxy and carbon, and represents the highest quality process. The material is stored in cooled rooms and catalyzes at 120° C in a mold.
|The Pre-preg fibers must travel in refrigerated trucks and be stored frozen. The refined ratio between carbon fiber and epoxy resin provides the lightest weight with the best mechanical properties of carbon fiber.|
Having a stiff and solid assembly between all the parts of the foil, is key to making it perform at its best as well as easy to handle.
The connection of the front wing with the fuselage is highly stressed and loaded, it is one of the critical area of the assembly in terms of structures.
|The MONOBLOC wings are molded together with the fuselage in one shot, thereby removing the connection and the chances for unwanted and parasitic movements.
The structural fibers of the fuselage are spread into the wing to achieve the most natural, sound and light connection.
It is also incredibly stiff and provide absolute control at all times, with the foil responding perfectly to all of the riders input.
When the overall dimensions are too large for convenient transportation, a connection is set into the fuselage, behind the mast where the loads are smaller.
|Titan connection |
The TITAN connection enables a very stiff and direct connection between two parts, locking efficiently any movement in all directions.
|Its format is compact which is hydrodynamically friendly and very easy to use, assemble and disassemble.|
