Besides the strength issue I think it is more for better hydrodynamics. The less seams, the more efficient.WH Lithuania wrote:Most of those high performance foils are not fully disassemblable. Is there really such big strength improvement of such construction? It's obviously harder to travel with such setup and it's more costly to change wings or fuselage in case of damage.

That equipment list doesn't seam to be accurate. I've heard from one of the racers there that that Axel and Maxime are on Sword 2 foils, not f-one.Mossy 757 wrote:WH Lithuania wrote:Looks like custom Mike's foils dominates top 10 in the USA http://hydrofoilprotour.info/equipment/usa-gear/.
Axel, Maxime, and Alex Caizergues all jumped on the F-One Grand Prix foil for the Mauritius race. Alex competed in San Fran on a Banga Foil but looks like he's doing better on this gear.
Interesting that the Axel and Max are pretty much as fast as they've always been on the new foils. Levitaz and KFA are also on the map, mostly because of Olly Bridge and the German Flysurfer riders.
So looks like the state of the art is Mike's Lab, F-One, Levitaz, and KFA.
