Hi all,

Just want to share with you the information that we added a SPEED front wing to the range of wings for the White&Green Foil.

This wing it's compatible with all previous models of ZEEKO Foils.

Hi Andre,
Are you planing to offer a alufoil set with G10 wings, like the Black&white was in the past?
Greetings,
Jaros

hey Andre . . .

Can you tell me:

Is this wing made out of G10 like the carver?

or is it made out of prepreg glass like the blue front wing on the white and blue?

Hi, thank you for your questions.

The Speed wing is designed with an anhedral curve giving more control at high speed . Yes it's made form fiber glass.
It is technically impossible to produce it from G10.

For this moment the Spitfire wings and the Carver wing are made of G10.

peace!

I just got my Zeeko Carver wing and noticed that there is a gap between the wing and the platform on top of it (see picture). If you own a Carver wing, would you mind checking if it has the same gap on yours? Thanks!

Thanks. What a weird design though Zeeko, why leave a gap?!

Hi Max,
I've got the Carver too, but never used it so far. Can you describe how different is the flying compared to the Freeride? Handling, upwind and min/max speed?
Do you keep the straps in the same positions, or are you going strapless?
What board are you using? I haven't seen anyone using the Air Wave strapless. Any reason?
I found the Carver wing so bloody heavy (making transporting and body dragging a pain in the butt), I've asked a local guy who is experienced with composite materials for foils to make the same out of carbon with a balsa core. Will let you know if it was a good idea.
I'd also like a composite fuselage, or at least a hollow one. The Double agent wings and fuse are incomparably lighter than the Zeeko's, which makes the pre-waterstart phase a delight, compared.
Wishing Zeeko went the hybrid way (alu mast - composite for the rest) like several other manufacturers do already.
BTW, coming from the Cab Double Agent I was surprised at the low speed the Freeride Zeeko could get going; I would say not even a knot more than the DA. Wonder what the Carver lowest speed will be!
Another observation: even with the 2.5 cm fin, I found the Freeride too stable in yaw for sharp turns. Anyone removed it?
Aloha!
