Starboard Alloy Foil Freeride 

The freeride model has the largest wing sets out of the entire Starboard range , if you're aiming to fly in the lightest of wind speeds with the most stability . This also means that it works well with narrower boards .

This set uses a shorter mast for a lower, easier flight and larger wings for more stability and easier take-off in lighter winds.  5.0- 8.5 m2 sails


Mast: Alloy 75cm | Fuselage: Aluminium 75cm | Front Wing: Carbon 1100cm2 | Tail Wing: Carbon 500cm2


Forget weight, forget flex: foil masts have to be stiff and torsionally rigid to achieve controlled flight. The stiffer, the more stable. And the more stable, the more control and more performance the foil delivers. Starboard masts are built in 100% pre-preg carbon, with forty layers of wrapped high-modulus uni-axial, bi-axial and tri-axial Toray carbon hydraulically pressed, heated and fused into one monolithic mast of incredible stiffness.
 
The shape of our mast has also been optimized for flexural and torsional stiffness. Computer-simulated analysis shows the Starboard mast, by virtue of its shape alone, is already up to 52% stiffer than a traditional mast.
Wing Technology

Carbon foils see an upgrade to the masts from the alloys. Still on a fully modular platform and with the ability to change between wings. These are already PWA winning race foils and are used by many Starboard and non Starboard team riders alike. 

Fuselage Technology

Aluminium. Why aluminium? A-B testing repeatedly found aluminium fuselages to outperform carbon fuselages in spite of their weight and the extra care needed to avoid corrosion. The longer the fuselage, the more apparent it became: unlike masts or wings that are thin, because of the solid, circular cross-section of a fuselage, not only is an aluminium fuselage stiffer, it is also tougher, stronger and torsionally more rigid. Since added weight is not a disadvantage in foils, possibly even an advantage, we chose 6061 aluminium for the fuselage construction.


Wing Saddles

The key to a good saddle design is width and square, mechanically locking shapes. With a flat and large mating surface that makes the most of the fuselage's width, Starboard's wings bolt-on with ease and allow wings of all shapes and sizes to be fitted. Want to attach your own wings? We supply G10 shimming blocks that allow you to bolt on any wings to the Starboard Modular Foil Platform.


Fuselage Fitting

A super stiff mast, a hyper-rigid fuselage and full carbon wings would all go to waste if the fuselage fitting wasn't up to par. So we designed our own patent-pending fuselage fitting that not only allows for convenient disassembly, it also allows four lateral bolts to crank up the fitting pressure between the mast and the fuselage to the max, enhancing torsional rigidity and creating a single, fused high performance unit. Three Torx bolts on the bottom carry the vertical loads. When the fuselage fitting could be the weakest link in a foil construction, our patent-pending system turns the design equation upside down, making the connection a stronger and stiffer link than had we made a single-piece mast fuselage combination.
