Axis High Performance (HPS) Carbon Front Wing

(1 customer review)

£510.00£720.00

The High Performance Speed (HPS) wings are FAST. Designed for the ultimate in performance, but yet still usable by most levels of riders.

Included is an AXIS padded cover with zipper, in heather gray, and AXIS branding, for safer setup, transportation and storage.

*If you purchase a Black Series front wing it will only fit on a Black Series fuselage as the bolt pattern is spaced differently and the fuselage is thinner to accommodate the high aspect wings.

Description

HIGH PERFORMANCE SPEED

High-performance foiling accessible to everyone.

This breakthrough high aspect foil was the result of a long and intensive design and prototyping process that included the development of our new ‘black’ fuselage to incorporate the reduced thickness and chord of the HPS foil section.

The camber of the HPS, a key variable in the lift versus drag trade-off, is also the lowest in the AXIS range.

But while this foil is unashamedly designed for speed and glide, the real achievement is how easy it is to use for almost all levels of rider. Where other brands’ high aspect foils are usually an unstable ‘expert only’ ride, we’ve seen people jump on HPS and rip after a just a few sessions mastering basics on higher lift foils.

This is thanks to the beautifully balanced plan-shape and carefully considered down-turn and twist, that keeps this foil turning freely and handling predictably in all conditions.

AXIS HPS has quickly become our most popular foil for winging for all levels riders once they have the basics down. A true industry benchmark. It’s also making its mark in Downwind, Prone and SUP foiling for faster or more powerful waves. Its high-speed suitability also makes it a natural choice for windsurf and kite foiling.

    So my third review today. Head on over to my reviews on the Wasp and Axis froth boards too if you’re interested.

    I’m finishing off with my review of the HPS 1050mm foil from Axis. As I mentioned in my other reviews this is my first year of wing foiling. Back in April I sought 2XS’s Simon’s opinion on what board and foil to get started. Generally I am always cautious about going too low volume in boards or too high performance in foils. I am 90 kg and prefer to spend my time enjoying my kit rather than fighting it. I have done some kite foiling before so Simon recommended the Axis HPS 1050mm foil. Like a true geek I went home and figured out the features of the majority of the Axis range to figure out where that foil fitted in. With a span of 1050mm and an area of around 1500 square centimetres it seemed like a sensible choice that might work over a range of conditions for my 90kg. I wasn’t disappointed, it has worked a charm this season!

    I know a lot of riders like to change foils for the conditions etc. But if like me you like to keep it simple I think its hard to go wrong with this kind of setup. So much fun. I guess if you wanted to foil in really light winds you might consider something else as well. However, for me and my ability I need a little breeze so this works perfectly!
