Zeeko Bullet 2018

The Bullet, the fastest alloy foil on the market !

This new Foil Bullet is both versatile and performant.
With its taller vertical fin, its thinner mast and its new fuselage, it has great stability and allows as much to progress serenely as reaching incredible speed on an alloy foil (beyond 38 knots).

Wonder if the flat stab gives it more maneuverability...

Does anyone have a review of the bullet? Did anyone try one with both speed wing and Carver wing?

I wonder how Mike Z. will feel about this. I believe he calls his foils "Bullet."

Looks like they sped the footage up at 1:12 to make the turns look 10x faster :lol: :lol:

The Bullet is fast and without loss of control.
My ride with it’s Freeride wing showed it to be as easy as green&white but less restriction to how fast you wanted to go.
A slightly more agile feeling initiating turns.
Never topped out it’s speed in my ride but keeping up with Slalom windsurfing boards on flat water was no problem.

totally agree, also we will introduce next month an additionnal larger front and back wing to match the bullet and also our carbon foils.
More details soon

I always love the riding and angles in the zeeko vids. Nice work again Nico :D
Not a fan though of accelerated video. Normal speed and slo-mo for me :thumb:

Beyond 38kts ? I have doubts considering world class riders can barely reach that speed on high end carbon race foils. 30 to 35kts range would already be amazing.

I'm at the stage where I think I'd like a faster foil and a slower foil for my next foil 😂 I love speed and I love carving as well.

I like alloy foils.

If the bullet does both with a change of wings, it could be great..

I can't work out why there's no buzz or even reviews out there, as opposed to say the spitfire..
