F-one gravity 1800 foil - experience?

Postby Bennis123 » Thu May 13, 2021 8:45 am

Hi! Does anyone have experience with the standard f-one gravity 1800? Also, is f-one a good foil system with regards to upgrading, or will I want to swap the whole system when I transition to smaller possibly HA wings down the road?

We use the Gravity 1800 for teaching. It's a great foil with good top speed. It is very neutral when getting on the foil and easy to control. You can always upgrade to their Phantom foils which are medium high aspect ratio and great foils in waves and for cruising. The 1480 is awesome for winds from 12 kts to 20kts. Above 20 and in bigger waves I prefer the 1280. The 1780 is almost not necessary for 80kg riders because the 1480 is so efficient.

I haven't ridden the gravity, but the phantoms are by far the best foil I've ridden. I've ridden slingshot/ride engine, Moses, and F-one.

I really like the fone platform and find in second to none.

I think they have a choice between 12 different front wings and a few stabilizers so no problem there. Quality is top notch better than Moses and other top brands.

Great! So no need to swap for something like Axis down the road?
