The new Neilpryde Fly Wing Due to its highly refined LE geometry and entry shaping, the LE wing produces maximum thrust, power, and acceleration for its size. This allows riders to use a smaller wing than is typical for the conditions, resulting in greater maneuverability and easier handling. Additionally, the increased thrust and power lead to a greater range. The NeilPryde Design Center in Maui is the birthplace of the fly wing and of its innovative designs, spearheaded by Nils Rosenblad, a renowned windsurfing sail designer and America's Cup engineer. With feedback from a global team of experts, Neilpryde refines and perfected the Fly wing ensuring no detail is overlooked in our pursuit of excellence.
Due to the highly refined LE geometry and entry shaping, each wing produces the maximum thrust (power and acceleration) for its size. This dramatically increases the range, allowing riders to use a smaller wing than is typical in each set of conditions. The result is easier handling and greater maneuverability.
This creates a more efficient LE shape and an elliptical spanwise lift distribution for better upwind performance and control.
The dihedral angle allows higher aspect ratios due to increased wingtip clearance. It also makes the wing very roll stable, especially when flagging.
The small LE diameter at the wingtips reduces drag and allows dynamic twist. This improves low end acceleration during pumping as well as control when powered up.
The large opening between the LE and the front of the fill panel (which connects the canopy to the strut) allows the pressure to equalize across the two sides of the wing. This improves overall performance and makes the wing even more stable.
