Armstrong Foils A-Wing has been released as the first wing by the New Zealand based brand. Solid, Balanced and Powerful – this is the Armstrong Foils A-Wing.
Developing the A-Wing has been a total blast for the Armstrong Foils team. From the first prototypes to the final production model the team was searching for the ideal balance between power and feel while reducing leading edge flex to a minimum.

The A-Wing is powerful! This is primarily because the aerofoil section has been carefully developed so meter for meter the A-Wing is one of the most powerful wings on the market.
This power makes riding easy, especially gaining enough speed to get on the foil or deep water starting a short board. Once on the fly, the balance of power between the front and rear hand is similar which makes it comfortable and less physically fatiguing for longer riding sessions.
The solid airframe of the A-Wing is the second ingredient to power and performance. Armstrong Foils found that the stiffer airframe helps dramatically when pumping the wing for power in light winds and also holding its shape in powered conditions or jumping.
The thickness of the leading edge is not only for structural stability it’s also defining the nose radius of the aerofoil section that generates the power of the wing in flight
The Armstrong team refined the A-Wing design to be well balanced in a wide range of conditions. It is strong in terms of construction and durability but as light as possible in design for that perfect balance.
Armstrong trimmed off all the excess fat because they could feel the difference the lighter they made it. It floats better on the front handle when riding waves or swells and feels more manoeuvrable when tacking, gybing or tricking around!
