THE WINGMAN VEST
THE WORLD’S FIRST MODULAR HARDSHELL IMPACT VEST AND HARNESS FOR WING FOILING AND OTHER FOILING WATER SPORTS.
The Wingfoil Vest
The Wingman is a modular harness vest. A hybrid between a crash vest and a super-light detachable harness with an innovative new hook design featuring an integrated wing leash attachment arc.
HARD VS. SOFT SHEll
Extra wide, low profile, removable, seamless Curv® hardshell chest shield can be positioned individually with Velcro. No unprotected spaces in-between the soft foam paddings and where the zipper is placed like in traditional protection vests.
Watch your back
Hardshell Curv® back flaps and a velcro system to attach the harness module. Internal 10mm high-density EVA foam protector with an additional Curv® layer for spine protection and back support when riding with the harness.
High Hook Position
For a natural wing position that does not damage the rails when climbing on the board. It also allows riding switch stance hooked in and a shorter harness line for less swinging. It does not damage the deck when laying on the board for paddling.
LESS IS MORE.
Extend your water time drastically! This detachable minimized harness module with a super lightweight hook with Curv® flaps for better hook position stability.
The protectors are Curv® reinforced EVA foam. Super flexible for a perfect ergonomic fit and strong enough to support your chest and back.
You can configure your hook exactly to your needs. Heavy duty with two G-hooks or with the Fidlock® magnetic quick release. Use the leash arc on the upper side with a shorter, more tensioned leash, or use the lower arc configuration with a longer, less tensioned leash.
Integrated Leash Arc to attach the wing leash directly to your hook with a carabiner.
Velcro grip system for maximum hook stabilization.
Our breathing harness concept allows you to have an extremely stable hook position while being able to expand your chest by approx. 8cm and to freely breathe.
NON SLIP PADS
Mesh neopren panels are placed at the spine/back and on your hips on the inside to avoid the vest to slip up.
Adjustable Hook Height
You can stepless adjust your harness position by approx. 15 cm. Ride your hook exactly at your desired height.
Detach your harness module in seconds and use your Wingman as an impact vest only.
Keep it clean and store the extra webbing in the neoprene storage pockets to avoid straps flying around.
THE LOOP – MONO HARNESS LINE
The Wingman loop is the first of a completely new harness line concept. The mono line allows you to unload the power from your arms and, at the same time, provides much higher sensibility and precise steering compared to a two-point harness line setup. We like the simplicity of a fixed-length mono harness line, but at the same time, we understood how important the right length can be. That is why we designed one that you can trim to your perfect length in a few minutes.
The 50mm wide Velcro attachment system is designed to get a firm connection with your handle/boom, so it creates a “one piece” with your wing, making hooking in and out very precise and easy.
HANDS-FREE POWER POINT ADJUSTMENT
You can adjust the attachment system in a way so the mono line can still slide on your handle, which allows you to adjust the power point of your wing without unhooking and taking your hands off the handles.
