The original Mantis set a benchmark with regards to leading-edge rigidity, and this year it has been even further refined, culminating in an ultra-rigid frame and also refined profile. Combined with a pre-tensioned canopy, this gives a crisp high performing product that maintains its performance through a wider range of conditions.
Refined sizing and wingspans allow for more progressive power in the small sizes, while the wingtip shape adjustment helps deflect water during start-up, and also allows for deeper profiles to aid in power delivery.
The Mantis V2 showcases Cabrinha’s forward driving wing program and puts the ultimate in technology and efficiency into your hands to maximize water time and performance.
HIGH CENTRE LE DIAMETER - Increased center diameter to the leading edge, as well as a progressive taper, provides not only improved stiffness but also increased canopy tension.
HD LARGE-DIAMETER CLOSING SEAM - A larger stiffer diameter LE requires an updated closing seam contribution to withstand the unique forces that winging provides.
BALANCED DIHEDRAL - Many prototypes allowed us to arrive with the balanced dihedral on the Mantis V2. This gives a great blend of power to stability ratio.
HIGHLY RIGID STRUT - A single highly rigid strut allows for lower weight and predictable depower when on a wave.
ENHANCED RANGE - Through the updated shape and dihedral, the Mantis V2 has an increased power range that covers a larger spectrum of conditions.
REFINED WINGTIPS - A change in the wingtip shape not only aids in canopy control and stability but also reduces the chance of a wingtip catch when getting up and pumping.
