With the latest release of the SIC MAUI Raptor wing we thought we would take a little deep dive into the tech used on this windwing.
SIC has partnered with CORE kites to produce this new line of Raptor wings.
Taking knowledge from one of the most premium kitesurfing brands on the market SIC have managed to develop one of the strongest wings on the market.
ExoTex Dacron incorporates a unique thread structure and emulsion (protective coating) process that enables a higher pressure airframe. It substantially increases tube strength and rigidity. No-stretch ExoTex improves airflow, flight stability, and rider feedback by eliminating leading edge seam bulging. Expect a rigid more responsive wing.
CORTEX TRIPLE RIPSTOP
Industry-leading, Triple ripstop canopy fabric is protected and strengthened with a special coating process. CoreTex sets the standard in breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity, UV protection and elongation. Feel the tight, crisp signature only a CoreTex wing delivers,
