F-ONE Says:

The Gravity line of wings is designed for early lift, great stability and efficient pumping. With the new and thicker section profile for an early and very progressive lift-off. Larger area with increased span and high aspect ratio. Easy take-off at low speed, ideal for the smallest waves, good turning ability in waves and bumps. Superior glide on downwinders. Targeted at people looking for maximum lift without compromising glide and control.

The Gravity wings are very easy and stable to learn and progress. Able to fly and get some fun in the most insignificant waves. Very good pumping to go catch the next wave, or the one after! Its stability and glide also make it a perfect wing to use on downwinders. Built with pre-preg carbon for the best weight to strength ratio, with a super-light core.

The Titan connection directly connects the wing to the mast via the Titan mast foot and the fuselage is split in two parts in order to simplify transportation. This setup offers better load transmission and better stiffness throughout the different parts for maximum control.

Tkb Says:

The Gravity series of wings in the 1800 and 2200 sizes are ideal options for the new sport of wingsurfing. Both wings feature a carbon fiber fuselage that bolts together with Torx head bolts for easy assembly and mates with an aluminum mast. The construction brings an excellent blend between stiffness for crisp performance and robust lifting wings with a nice medium weight. Both setups offer wide wingspans, the 300 stabilizers with the super tall winglets, super slow foil-up speeds and incredibly stable inputs on all axes, with the yaw axis feeling the most stable of all inputs.

The Gravity 1800 seemed like the perfect wing for wingsurfing with a nice slow foil-up speed that promoted easy waterstarts and allows you to carve as tight as a turn as you’d like in the pocket of windswell. What we really liked about the 1800 was its higher top-end speed that allowed us to keep up with the faster swells when the larger of the two Gravity wings couldn’t. The 1800 has a really nice foil-up speed with smooth lift delivery, meaning that as you approach lift-off the wing generates lift evenly and intuitively. The foil-down speed was slow enough that we never had trouble stalling or slowing it down for a tight snap off the lip while riding swell. The 1800’s roll axis feels a bit more lively than the 2200 and while both have excellent pump games, the 1800 feels like it accelerates quicker when you input energy to the wing. The 1800 is the perfect size for most small and middle-sized wingsurfers looking for the widest spectrum of performance.

In summation, the Gravity foils are excellent options for wingsurfing with a good range of sizes that will be both user-friendly and performance-oriented while also offering exceptional build quality.
