RECENT CHANGES - A NEW FUSELAGE AND MAST SYSTEM
Hydrofoiling is a rapidly evolving sport and the Naish development team is always working hard to stay at the front edge of development. Over the past year, the biggest changes have been the universal acceptance of high aspect foils, and the expansion of the sport (especially winging) into the air with the inevitable hard landings and crashes. Both yield a dramatic increase in structural loading, so the Naish team took a thorough look at every aspect of our system.
Naish’s industry leading Indexed Scarf Joint (ISJ) is fully up to the task (unlike many other brands who have been forced to change their front wing connection), but our analysis suggested a comprehensive redesign of the mast/fuselage connection. Once we committed to a redesign, we also took the opportunity to improve functionality in areas beyond just increased strength.
THE NEW DESIGN DETAILS:
•Increased strength and durability to match the new load models
•Kept weight to a bare minimum
•Improved ease of assembly by going to (2)X M8 screws instead of (3)X M6
•Integrated a corrosion barrier between the carbon and aluminum masts and the aluminum fuselage
Check out our blog on 'Updates to Naish Foils' for more guidance.
The neew Naish fuselage features our new mas connection system but retains the Indexed Scarf Joint (ISJ) front connection and 2x M6 back wing connection. This makes our new fuselage 100% backwards compatible with every front wing we've made to date, and with every rear wing since 2018 in keeping with our modular design.
As the sport of foilling evolves, there are new levels of specialization, and Naish is pleased to now offer our fuselages in four lengths:
> 55cm - Our shortest fuselage, designed for maximum turning - popular for surf foiling, kite foiling and wing foiling.
> 64cm - The standard fuselage length that provides the best all-round performance and delivers the optimum combination of turning ability, pumping and pitch stability for surf, wing foiling and kite foiling.
> 95cm - Ideal for windsurf foiling for boards with track boxes as well as a graet choice for wingfoiling for riders looking for maximum pitch stability and control at high speeds.
> 95cm DT - Ideal for windsurf foiling for windsurf boards that feature a Deep Tuttle box. The mast position on this fuselage is set further aft, achieving the perfect balance for windsurf board with the box mounted at the tail.
- CNC construction from aircraft grade 6061 aluminum.
- (2) custom M8 screws (mast connection) use the T30 Torx driver as the M6 screws that connect the foil wings.
- Enlarged exterior geometry at the mast connection mitigates the increased torsional and bending loads from high aspect wings.
- New mast connection delivers seamless plug and play performance.
- All threaded connections have stainless steel helicoil liners to minimize corrosion
