Introducing the Armstrong Foils A-Wing XPS Lightwind Wing – This wing is designed to help you make the most of every opportunity to get in the water, even in very light wind conditions!

Revolutionising the lightwind Wing

Utterly unlike anything you’ve tried.

Foiling in light winds is a downright magical practice that changes how you look at wind and water.

Make the most of every opportunity to get in the water, and no matter how light the forecast gets, the all-new A-Wing XPS Lightwind will push you to progress. It packs a remarkable punch in the slightest breeze while hardly being confined to any conventional “big wing” boxes; it is super manoeuvrable, engaging to ride, light and terrifically balanced, and an all-around no-brainer to fly. This is the new standard for lightwind fun, period.

The Power Batten

An Ace Up its Sleeve!

A primary design challenge with large wings is ensuring everything stays in the right shape when riding. Located at the rear of the canopy perpendicular to the strut, our proprietary, patent-pending carbon fibre Power Batten maintains a precise airfoil profile along the full length of the wing from leading to the trailing edge. This dramatically improves power generation through the centre of the wing with hyper-efficient airflow and enables the wing’s signature bat tail outline.

A Narrower Wingspan

With less outboard weight, it is more balanced, much easier to pump up onto foil, and overall feels smaller than other wings of the equivalent area—all huge wins out on the water.

Cross Panel Sail Design

Where it all comes together.

The innovative Cross Panel Sail (XPS) design provides an outstanding, connected feel to the wing when riding. This futuristic panel layout greatly reduces sail distortion and improves load distribution and frame rigidity by arranging the canopy panels at diagonal angles. This gives all XPS Lightwind sizes a very direct and controlled feel for easy and comfortable flying. Removable carbon fibre battens minimise trailing edge flutter and provide easy canopy tuning for varying wind strengths.

Airframe and Canopy

It’s what you’re made of.

Weight and stiffness are everything when chasing performance, especially in lightwind wings. The XPS Lightwind’s leading edge is made from new generation high-quality lightweight Dacron, tried and tested polyester Dacron and Ultra PE woven laminate reinforcements, which provide excellent torsional stiffness and rigidity while minimising weight and achieving real-world durability. Teijin Technoforce D3 canopy material is light and strong and perfectly complements the Cross Panel Sail Design. The canopy windows are made from an ultra-clear and foldable TPU, which adds minimal weight to the setup while providing terrific visibility in all conditions.

Get a Grip

Comfort through innovation.

The proprietary Hybrid Carbon Handle (HCH) design has a rigid carbon interior skeleton and a soft padded exterior. Also found on our XPS wings, it’s a light and ultra-stiff combination that offers the best balance of control and comfort. The strut shape positions the handles highly ergonomically to boost your session endurance. A lack of hard edges also adds an element of impact safety for you and your board.
