AERO BODY EQUIPMENTS ARE NEXT LEVEL IN FAST SAILING TECHNOLOGY !

Published : 05/13/2019 12:11:18

The Aerodynamic drag becomes a real topic for High Speed Sailing Sports (above 30 knots apparent wind). We can see how America’s Cup, A Class, and Flying Moth boats looks more and more like planes!

In Forward WIP, we used our experience in material research and product development, combined it with that of our athletes and scientific experts in the WIP Lab, to create solutions that compliment this new world and be at the forefront of performance and innovation. Together we were able to identify new needs and drive new ideas to support our Aero Flow Vortex Gear Technology, created to enhance aerodynamic properties.

Tested and approved by the WIP Champions :

- GLENN ASHBY

  Acat World Champion and Winner of the America’s Cup

- BENOIT MARIE

  5th Moth Worlds and Moth French Champion

- NICOLAS GOYARD

  Windsurf World Champion and Current Holder of Windfoil Max Speed with 33 knots

Inspired by the best cycling teams time-trials, the WIP Flow Vortex Line use strategically placed 3D chevrons positively affect airflow around the body reducing drag (13%) at speeds relevant to the target rider.

Vortices pull the fast-moving air closer to the rider enhancing airflow.

AERO DRAG COMPARISONS

MOOTH SURFACE

A large vortex of swirling air creates more drag

SURFACE WITH SCOUPS

A smaller vortex creates less drag
