FOIL MODEL MEGA K
MORE ABOUTNew for 2018 the Mega K is the most versatile wing in the Shinn range. Originally designed with Surf and SUP in mind it’s also proved to be exceptionally well suited to kite-foiling in waves and in extreme light winds. With a surprisingly high top speed for a wing of this size and yet still un-believable low speed starting (as low as 8 kph) Mega K leads us down the path of multi-discipline wings. Designed to provide lift at low speeds and yet retain enough top end to keep it fun the Mega K provides stability and manoeuvrability making it perfect for SUP, SURF or Kitewave foiling in small to medium sized waves. Utilizing a low to mid aspect ratio wing with a high rake delta outline has allowed us to provide the massive speed range needed to handle both starting and control on the wave face. The main wings blended winglets work with the flat stabiliser to give great directional stability without limiting the carving potential even at crazy slow speeds. So why do we recommend the Mega K for extreme light wind kiting as well? Low speed starting is the key where the challenge is to generate enough speed to start foiling. With the Mega K the power needed to water start is already enough to fly and with a top speed in excess of 35 kph you’ll be cruising when even other foilers are left sitting on the beach. https://vimeo.com/331105472/c466abf7b6

Carbon K2 Foil
With more than 2 years R and D and over 30 prototypes made it would be fair to say the quest to find the perfect carbon mast was a little more complicated than it first appeared. Not content with simply building a “black foil” we’ve held back from releasing anything until every box was ticked.
Why are carbon foils special? Stiffness, stiffness and more stiffness (plus a little less weight). During foiling the rider is up to 1 metre above the foil, it’s long distance control, 1cm of flex at wing level is magnified by a factor of X to where you stand – imagine trying to push a button with a 1m long flexible stick or driving a car with flat tyres, each control input you make is magnified and delayed causing instability and even the most talented riders to wobble. If your serious about foiling and want to raise your game to the next level carbon is the only way forwards.
Built using our proprietary hi-modulus, multi-axial carbon sandwich construction and featuring an innovative new Hollow-Tech integrated mounting plate with fast mount slide on/off fasteners. This foil uses a dedicated fuselage but is compatible with all existing Shinn wings and stabilisers.
