The 2018 NORTH Foil Speedster GT Combo features smaller and faster wings for experienced foilers looking for enhanced performance. The GT Combo increases the average riders top speeds by 20%-25% while maintaining a stable and predictable ride. Designed for performance at speed, the GT Combo has improved efficiency and high lift at low speeds and predictable stall characteristics at high angles of attack.
THE FORCE TAKEAWAY
The Speedster GT will appeal to intermediate to advanced foilers who want to go fast but don't want to give up their freefoiling tricks and low-end speed. We recommend the Speedster GT to foilers who want a high-quality foil with an exceptionally strong and moderately lightweight construction that goes fast and retains good stability at lower speeds, too.
NORTH'S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
The fastest foil of the range, aimed at experienced riders who want to go fast but still keep control.
The Speedster GT Combo is aimed at the experienced rider. The new wings should give the average foiler about 5 knots more speed, which is an increase of 20% to 25% for most riders. Moreover, it is easy and predictable to ride and a good wing for learning foiling tacks and jibes. The front wing anhedral (droop) also helps to keep the wing tips away from the water surface while blasting upwind or carving a hard turn. This helps to pre-vent ventilation from the wing tip going too close to the water surface.
