Actuated Foil Technology
High Aspect Front wing
The Future of Foiling is here.
The iUP Autopilot performance and its embedded safety features enable an enhanced experience in every foiling discipline and every condition.
The wing flaps are similar to these you would see on the wing of a plane. These dynamic elements are electrically actuated and an integral part of the front wing, formed in flexible carbon fiber.
Therefore the front wing of the iUP can literally bend and it
serves the same function as having multiple wings that you would change in real-time.
With full flaps down, you can take off as early as you would with a 1,800 cm2 wing. As you gain speed, the flaps retract to provide a similar performance and speed as a 1,000 cm2 wing.
They also enable automated control of the foil's pitch & roll.
NO "FLIPPING OVER"
The iUP is designed with safety in mind. When you fall, the Autopilot compensates in order to make sure the board does not flip over, minimizing the risk of getting hurt by the foil.
Thanks to the fusion of different sensors, the Autopilot calculates the height above water and can lock it in, once you activate specific navigation modes. It gives a better control of the foil and an enhanced flying experience.
VARIOUS NAVIGATION MODES
We develop the iUP’s multiple navigation modes to support beginners, as well as enhance the performance of more experienced riders. You can change modes and download new ones using our smartphone App.
We have embedded a GPS so you can review your rides after the navigation, and share it with the community.
FLAP ADJUSTEMENT MODE
You can use the App to set up and lock the flaps of the iUP at a specific position before your ride, changing the front wing's geometry depending on the conditions and using the iUP as a classic foil with multiple wings.
The iUP is a connected device, constantly evolving based on your interaction with it, opening an entirely new dimension in water sports.
Thanks to all the participants of our iUP development program.
With the iUP, I can reach a new level of performance that I thought was out of reach for my level. I can go up to 25 knots in all confidence and safety - I would not dare with a classic hydrofoil!
As you are increasing speed, the wing flaps get more control authority. It gives you a unique sensation of stability as you accelerate. With the iUP, anyone will naturally break speed records !
I only have a few opportunities to go on the water and the conditions are not always perfect for my level. The iUP adapts to it and makes every session count.
We will come back soon...
