2020 Neil Pryde Glide Surf Foil



2020 Neil Pryde Glide Surf Foil

What Neil Pryde Says About the 2020 Neil Pryde Glide Surf Foil:

The 2020 Neilpryde Glide Surf Foil creates a playground for building new surfing sensations. With a stable and fast take off no matter the surf conditions.

On the wave, easy turns and stable, controllable flight allow you to fly across sections and progress from straight riding to progressive foil-turns. Your imagination is now the only limitation to how you will use the waves and how far you will fly. Superior gliding and controlled speed to ride waves as far as they can flow.

Pump from one wave to the next - see how long you can fly!

Suitable for strapless windfoiling SUP with a mast foot rig connector. Offers playful sessions to begin windfoiling, cruise around and catch some surf. Using the same foil SUP stance. Allows for the use of extremely small sail sizes and barely hooking into the harness.

Our innovative Top Plate base system integrated in the Aluminium mast and perfectly blended fuselage offers the best connection for your surf and SUP boards. Plug and Play.

Tail Wing Adjustment

Delivers inverted thrust to balance the main wing and maintain easy control and stability. Foil is perfectly trimmed for average weight rider (75- 80kg) with tail in neutral position. Heavier riders, especially in light winds or during the learning process might prefer slightly more stabilizing force that a down tilted rear wing provides. Also, this down-angled position increases low-end power and lift of the foil. At the same time lighter riders, especially in strong wind conditions, may benefit from a drag and lift reduction by reducing the downwards tilt angle of the rear wing. Less down-angle will reduce the differential angle between the two wings and make the foil feel less draggy in the water, resulting in the fastest possible foiling sensation.

Mast

65 cm Aluminium mast. Optimized structure with two CNC female base system inserts ensuring maximum strength. Hollow construction to reduce weight combined with x3 vertical cross-ribs for maximum stiffness. Sanded mast trailing edge to avoid planning turbulence noise. Tempered, salt water corrosion resistant 6061-T6 aluminium.

Fuselage

Perfectly blended wing to CNC machined fuselage connection and integrated wind saddle providing minimum drag. Volume and weight of the aluminium used in fuselage is reduced by eliminating the forward protruding nose.

Wings

GLIDE SURF pre-preg carbon layup with inner foam construction for maximum durability to weight ratio. Front wings span, Large: 86cm / Medium: 75cm and Small: 64cm. Tail wing span, Large: 51cm / Tail wing span, Small: 40cm.

GLIDE wings setup creates a natural tendency to roll into turns maintaining a nice balance during your ride. The Front wing is designed with a pronounced rounded Angle of attack and an elliptical bend shape. While flying, this thick leading edge on the front wing naturally closes the radius of your turn, tightening it. Far back, the angled down tail wings maintain a self-stabilizing roll allowing an easy turning performance. During this momentum, the GLIDE tail wing persists always want to come back to a flat position and cancelling the turning radius.

FEATURES

BASE SYSTEM
New CNC reinforced base construction.
Two deep titanium vertical tube connections to the mast for maximum strength, eliminating movement and offering perfect load transfer. Avoids vibration around the upper attachment area.
GLIDE SURF foil comes with top plate base system. CONSTRUCTION
All foils are supplied with a T-40 torx drive, and come with titanium plated stainless steel bolts for maximum strength to weight ratio, preventing any corrosion problems.

 

TAIL WING ADJUSTMENT - NEUTRAL
Across our foils, the tail wings are there to deliver inverted thrust to balance the main wings to ensure stability and control. The foils come with a standard neutral tail wing setting.
TAIL WING ADJUSTMENT - DOWN TILTED
A down-tilted setting ensures higher stability and more control in lighter winds, it naturally lifts the foil more and increases the low-end power. This setting is also a go-to when you are a heavier rider.

 

TAIL WING ADJUSTMENT - UP TILTED
An up-tilted setting will help to reduce drag and lift, by up-tilting the tail wing setting, this can also be of benefit to lighter riders or in heavier wind conditions.

 

MAST
65 cm aluminum mast. Optimized structure with two CNC female base system inserts ensuring maximum strength.

Hollow construction to reduce weight combined with x3 vertical cross-ribs for maximum stiffness. Sanded mast trailing edge to avoid planning turbulence noise. Tempered, salt water corrosion resistant 6061-T6 aluminum.

SURF FUSELAGE
Perfectly blended wing to CNC machined fuselage connection and integrated wind saddle providing minimum drag. Volume and weight of the aluminum used in the fuselage is reduced by eliminating the forward protruding nose.
WINGS
GLIDE wings are made of pre-preg carbon layup with inner foam construction for maximum durability to weight ratio. This setup creates a natural tendency to roll into turns maintaining a nice balance during your ride.

The front wing is designed with a pronounced rounded “angle of attack” and an elliptical bend shape. While flying, this thick leading edge on the front wing naturally closes the radius of your turn, tightening it. Far back,

the angled down tail wings maintain a self- stabilizing roll allowing an easy turning performance.

During this momentum, the GLIDE tail wing will always come back to a flat position, stabilizing the turn.

NEW MEDIUM SLIM WINGS
The new medium slim wings have been developed to offer a foil set up that is faster, can take off on higher waves and allow for tighter turns. These wings are specially made for advanced foilers that want to speed up their foil set up.
