The new F-one Rocket Wing 5'5 at 90 litres is a fantastic board and very good value for money. It is a good first board for light weight riders, particularly if they have had a few sessions on a larger foil board or if they are determined and have a wind sports background. The board would also suit heavier intermediate riders.
The dimensions of the board are 5’5 x 27” x 4.5”.
The ASC construction
The AIR SHIELD COMPOSITE stand up paddles are constructed around a light weight injected EPS core molded to our original shape. It is laminated with a composite made of high strength glass fiber, epoxy resin and a genuine shield made of a high quality protective topsheet layer. The topsheet is a tough and extremely reliable material also used in the construction of F-ONE twin-tips as well as in most of the skis and snowboards on the market. Thanks to their construction molded in one shot, the A.S.C. boarfs are light weight, responsive and extremely durable.
At 5’5 for 90L, the board has enough volume and width to make it possible for most riders to stand-up easily as well as making sure that riding back to the shore is possible, even when the wind drops. Its dimensions are ideal for an easy progression.
Using some straight rocker lines for an easy take-off and a wide tail outline for an optimized volume distribution, the ROCKET WING ASC features a sharp beveled rail profile to make the release easier during take-off and the touch-down smoother when the board hits the water again. In other words, you will be up and flying in no time and you won’t be unsettled when occasionally hitting the water.
The ROCKET WING ASC is equipped with a recessed handle for easy carrying, a full pad for comfort and with the twin track system on the bottom to connect with most foils on the market (4-bolt plate system). It is built around a light core made of eps foam injected into a specific mold carved to its own shape. This core is then laminated with fiberglass and epoxy resin into another mold and wrapped inside a protective shield skin. This shield, made of polymer, is both ultra-thin and very durable.
