The All-New Kujira Foil from Takuma utilizes one of the most unique front wings on the market! Said to mimic the shape of a humpback whale's pectoral fin, these foils have pronounced ridges along the leading edge, which help create incredible lift, glide, and responsiveness! It's a good source of inspiration- after all, these 40-50 foot long, 25+ ton whales are often seen jumping clear out of the water, so clearly there is some amazing power there!
Technology Mimicking Nature! Note the Tubercles on the Humpback Whale's Pectoral Fin (above) as compared to the Takuma Kujira Foil Wing (below).
The unique shape of this wing allows for incredible lift and glide, so users can choose wing sizes slightly smaller than normal. Benefits of smaller foil wings include increased top speed and maneuverability, and decreased weight and drag.
- New tubercle design inspired by the humpback whales’ pectoral fin.
- Takumas LOL designed upturned winglets gives our foils more efficient glide and lift with significantly less drag allowing the rider a more secure balanced feeling while foiling.
- Additional width and chord creates extreme glide with improved agility and acceleration while retaining excellent turning and carving in all conditions.
- Effortless low and high speed control.
The third iteration of the Wing Ride is Takuma's best yet! Offering incredible power and stability, the WR3 is capable of both big jumps, AND easy luffing for wave riding, and everything in between! The combination of leading edge refinements, canopy shaping and canopy tension allow for maximum forward drive and power, and unmatched stability during luffing. Add the long handles to all of this and you get a super easy to use but highly capable wing!
At Takuma, we make a point of always being one step ahead to provide you with innovative, high performing products allowing you to ride even more intensely.
In 2019 Takuma & Wing Ride, under the spotlight, launched the Wing Ride I. The past few months were full of adjustment and incredible discoveries of new performance. We are now proud to present you the new Wing WR. This new Wing Ride is the most balanced model on the market.
The Wing WR will take you from your first wing riding moments to most advanced rides, like wave riding, downwinding, jumping, speeding and more, thanks to its amazing stability and forward drive. Our design process has been focused on stability and ease of use, paired with a stiffness allowing for comfortable and efficient rides.
The arc had been specifically designed for improved efficiency. Flat enough to maximize power, and flaring out enough to let the air flow through the whole wing and let you accelerate, it makes you go upwind easily and enhances the forward drive at the start.
The canopy is naturally tensioned for a perfect profile definition at all times. This creates a very direct response to input, with no flutter when sheeting out and an unmatched stability when neutrally flown, like when riding a wave for example.
Our unique long reinforced handles are designed to greatly improve your control of the wing while also letting you easily move your hands back and forth without having to let go of a handle to grasp the next one over.
Your Wing WR will live a lot: reinforcement on all leading edge seams and kevlar protection on ears (aramid) protect the Wing from friction and most practice related hazards for better long life sustainability.
A special attention has been paid to making this Wing Ride as light as possible by only incorporating needed reinforcements, selected after hours of testing in all conditions. Wings of 2,6m to 4m come with 2 riding handles and 1 leading edge. Sizes 5 and 6 come with 3 riding handles and 1 leading edge.
The leading edge diameter has been totally reworked with a whole new taper. It increases in the center to give a stiffer platform, allowing for more efficient pumping, better support in jumps, and amazing low end power. The diameter decreases closer to the wing tips, letting the area twist slightly to adjust to the airflow and provide the most efficiency and forward drive ever on a wing. You’ll appreciate the easy deflation of the strut, thanks to our double leading edge to strut connection and its big diameter.
The Wing Ride requires a pump to be inflated, which is not delivered with it.
