Ozone Apex V1 Freeride Hydrofoil
+ A PERFECT MATCH +
Performance Freeride Hydrofoil
Designed primarily for Kite Foiling
Ultra strong full carbon construction
All rider levels
The Apex hydrofoil perfectly matches with the Apex board, both are designed and built ultra tough using top of the line materials and construction techniques.
Front Wing LA1200
The LA1200 has a low aspect ratio with a generous amount of sweep making the wing alive to ride while being super stable. The self-righting moment produces a huge amount of pitch stability. Hours of CFD allowed us to design a unique section profile with a high lift to drag ratio and late stall point. The LA1200 takes off early, keeps you up foiling at low speeds and can still go relatively fast for a 1200cm2 sized wing – our team riders have pushed it up over 25kts. A carbon fiber layup around a lightweight foam core with a full carbon monolithic centre section provides a light and strong platform.
Rear Wing MA315
The MA315 is designed to produce a balanced amount of pitch control and speed. It features a medium aspect ratio with 315cm2 area, with side winglets helping to control yaw movement. The wing is built light and strong using a full carbon fiber layup.
Our unique mast construction features a hybrid core using a combination of high-density foam polymer and wood. During our R&D process we found this was the optimum combination for incredible shear strength to weight ratio. The lamination is comprised of a Quadraxial Carbon fiber matrix with high modulus epoxy resin creating superior rigidity in flex and in torsion. The tapered outline adds extra strength without compromising speed. A slotted baseplate design allows easy fitting to the board. Titanium Barrel Nuts embedded in the mast provide durability and maximum strength at the mast to fuselage connection.
Constructed for maximum stiffness and strength from a full carbon mono block. Our unique Beamed Tuttle Box design increases strength at the mast to fuselage connection. Titanium Barrel Nuts embedded in the fuselage provide durability and maximum strength at the front and rear wing connections.
All carbon parts are finished with an ultra high quality hydrophobic coating used in performance marine environments such as Americas Cup racing yachts. This unique coating provides UV protection to the carbon laminate and an optimum surface finish, laboratory test results show a 15% less drag coefficient compared to a high gloss surface.
All screws and barrel nuts are CNC machined from GR5 Titanium with a Torx head fitting, guaranteeing zero corrosion and ultimate strength. Each complete Apex V1 foil is supplied with a Torx Key.
The Apex V1 foil kit comes complete with protective covers for the Mast, Front Wing and Rear Wing. Constructed with high quality materials, padded foam layers and velcro closures. The Mast cover includes a pocket for storing the Torx tool, screws and Rear Wing Shims.
