FOIL MODEL K2
It’s 2 years since we tore up the rule book and introduced the Model P – a revolution for learning to foil and now we’re at it again. Even now there is a chasm in terms of ability needed between beginner and true performance foils – for 2019 we aim to close that gap and introduce the Shinn K2 foil.
Inheriting the ease of use, early starting and intuitive pitch control from the legendary Model P the all new K2 has an abundance of confidence inspiring stability and control that allows the rider to comfortably handle power and reach speeds that seemed impossible before. Rider further and faster without extreme front foot pressure, agility with stability and a fast track to a more advanced foiling level. With a similar rake and surface area to the model K the secret to this foil is in the combination of the 2-stage anhedral front wing and high aspect, wingletted stabiliser perfectly balancing the foil through a range of speeds. If the P wing was responsible for re-writing the rule book on entry level foiling get ready for the K2 to do the same for the next generation of high-energy freeriders.
