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!

Takuma Kujira Foil Wing Detail

 

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.

More Info:

Takuma introduces the new Kujira foil, inspired by humpback whales.The name Kujira is Japanese for whale. There is an element of biomimicry in the innovation and engineering process of the Kujira foil, as it is fully inspired by humpback whales.

The design: The Kujira foil was designed by Laurent Borgna, well known for having already shaken things up in the foiling world with his work on the LOL Profoil range, and Cyril Coste, the founder of Takuma.

Takuma Kujira Foil

The revolutionary tubercle design is inspired by the pectoral fin of humpback whales
who are known for their agility, power and efficiency. Takuma wanted to implement this anomaly into the Kujira foil, and managed to do it by reproducing and adding whale-like bumps to the design. After a numerous prototypes, modifications and adjustments to the shape and profile of the bumps, computer simulations, and hours of testing in all conditions, there was a clear, distinct and enormous improvement in terms of lift, glide, stability and comfort in the new foils. This remarkable extra lift allows the rider to use a smaller wing with better performance creating exceptionally smooth flight and glide even at low speed. The signature LOL upturned winglets are also found on the Kujira. Retaining the winglets on our hydrofoils give them much more efficient glide and lift with significantly less drag allowing the rider a feeling of extra comfort while foiling.
