Ensis Foil Wing V:2 2021
Swiss design and manufacture is synonymous with quality and the Ensis foil wing range is just that. Produced to suit the demands of riders such as Balz Muller, Ensis are setting the standard in wing performance and versatility. The V2 blends the super lightweight construction with absolute durability, being suited to riders from beginner to pro. Available in a range of colours and sizes from 2.5-6m, of which the 5.2m is undoubtedly the place to start.
We love to recommend quality products that our staff use personally. But with a wide variety of foil wings on the market you might ask why Ensis? Good Question! For the staff at Robin Hood Watersports the answer relates to the absolute confidence we have in both the construction and function of these wings, offering the perfect blend of low end grunt and stability in more extreme conditions.
You can be assured that whatever your foiling level the Ensis wing will offer accessible performance and not limit you to any particular discipline. With this wing you really can do anything, it will take you from your first session to wherever you want to go!
FOR FIRST ATTEMPTS UP TO THE PRO
The wing is extremely stable, light in the hand and has incredible low end power. This makes getting up on the foil effortless.
MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE IN ALL WIND STRENGTHS
The Ensis Wing is incredibly robust to differing conditions, their designers string to achieve the perfect balance of stability, power and propulsion. One interesting thing to note is that the sail fabric is stretched even without pressure from the wind, thereby reducing flutters and allowing the rider maximum control.
FOR FREERIDE, WAVE AND FREESTYLE
Given the low end power, stability and simple control of the Ensis wing these are ideally placed for use in a range of disciplines from wave to freeride and freestyle.
PERFECTLY PLACED HANDLES
The Ensis wing uses 4 handles, with their position having been omtimised over an extensive prototyping process. This includes 3 wide handles for perfect hand placement and a narrow handle in the centre of the strut for the harness lines. Ensis understand that some customers might prefer to use the wing with a rigid boom. While this is not required the fittings ensure this is possible.
HIGHEST MATERIAL QUALITY, PRECISE PROCESSING
Ensis took time to source the highest quality fabrics to ensure you receive a product that is light and extremely robust.
ROBUST, LIGHTWEIGHT CANVAS
Tejin 3x3 fabric is used for the wing. This is the best material currently available on the market.
STRONG, COMFORTABLE HANDLES
The handles are made of highly resilient, plasticized fabric mixed with EVA. They are stiff and extremely comfortable to hold. ENSIS handles allow a very direct wing control.
RESISTANT FRONT TUBE
The leading edge is reinforced with particularly resilient material in all connecting segments and in the wing tips. These ENSIS reinforcements prevent the tubes from chafing and thus increase the life of the wing.
The trailing edge is reinforced with a Dyneema tape and is therefore much more durable. This also reduces flutter.
FAST ONE-PUMP SYSTEM
The max-flow valve and the double inflate / deflate valves enable rapid inflation and equally rapid deflation.
HIGHEST QUALITY OF THE TUBE SEAMS
The seams of the leading edge and the strut are offset with a layer of insignia. For the seams we use a highly resilient special thread from UK production. The ENSIS tubes are made for an extreme internal pressure of 7 to 9 psi. This enables the ENSIS Wing to have a maximally stable leading edge and strut.
