The Appleslice Wing was designed to be a lightweight, nimble and quick wing foil board. It has an extremely compact outline with short length for maximum volume in the most efficient shape possible- maximizing performance while minimizing drag .
The bottom of the Appleslice Wing features a unique 4 way “boat hull” in front. This design allows water to flow through it, causing an acceleration effect as well as providing excellent planing surface where one can release and rise on their foil with ease without any sticking issues due to its small size at just over 2 inches thick (51mm). The deck is concave, to lock your knees in when you get going. It also gives a real secure platform that's perfect for standing on and makes it easier than ever before to pull off those crazy airs! The Appleslice Wing board comes with inserts which are designed specifically so feet straps can be used as standard; these comfy 3mm EVA traction surfaces offer more control while still providing plenty of grip during intense moments of riding such has pumping or flipping tricks off ramps
The Appleslice Wing Foil Board Stock comes with:
The Appleslice Wing Board is super light and stiff, responsive and you will feel the foil all the time you ride on. Appletree used the experience in building the lightest and strongest carbon kiteboards and now they build the lightest and strongest wing foil board of today.
Two Futures US boxes connect the foil to your carbon foil board. The boxes are positioned in the most common configuration at 90mm to accept most foils in the market. This connection system is the strongest and lightest available. The boxes are set in a high density PET Honeycomb, that in term is sandwiched in carbon. So there is carbon fibre inside the board as well. This makes the foil connection ultra strong, and really stiff for the perfect energy transfer from board to foil.
The Appleslice Wing comes with scratch proof matte finish, in white with the carbon shining through.
It has inserts for foot straps as standard and comes with a comfy 3mm EVA traction on the whole deck.
All Appletree foil boards are produced with a 100% carbon fiber construction. You want carbon fiber in a foil board for its stiffness and strength. A stiff board will give you the best control and response from the foil. Also stiffness will make pumping the foil much more effective. With carbon fiber we are able to make the board extremely strong while really light at the same time.
The most stress in a foil board is in the connection of the foil to the board. So this is where we put extra care and attention to make it the strongest connection available. The foil mount is CNC cut with the board, for the highest precision. We only use FUTURES oneshot boxes as they are the strongest in the industry. The boxes are placed in a panel of ultra high density PET honeycomb. This PET honeycomb itself is sandwiched in carbon again. Meaning there is carbon fiber both inside the board and outside. The honeycombs open structure ensures a solid connection between inside and outside, fusing everything together into a solid block.
Our lamination is completely different as well. We use a vacuum technique developed in house, where we layer all the carbon fiber, and reinforcements on the board dry. Then we extract all the air from the bag and inject the epoxy resin under pressure. This results in the tightest lamination possible, with the best ration between fiber and epoxy. It also gives 100% connection to the core so the boards do not delaminate. Extra patches under the feet prevent heel denting.
Inserts in our foil range are made from blocks of high density material. And can be customized position wise. These blocks are also fused to the core so they never pull out.
