This hydrofoil wing is a faster and more progressive wing compared to the low aspect wing. Liquid Force is sticking with the medium aspect wing as it's high performance wing. They've tested out high aspect wings and found that there is a very small gain in speed (up to only 2 knots), but loses stability. So with the medium aspect wing, you get the speed and the stability! This wing is made of carbon, making it very durable if/when you bottom out. All Liquid Force wings come with a 1 year warranty.
