THE AEON FUSELAGES WITH THE PATENTED SELF-LOCKING CONNECTION
“Aluminium” beats carbon in terms of compatibility, stiffness and lightweight 3-Dimensional strength.
“Titanium” beats aluminium and carbon offering even more stiffness and allowing reduced diameter outlines with less drag and improved 3-dimensional strength.
Mast-Fuselage connection: The patent pending “Self-Lock Dual-Box” guarantees the safest and stiffest connection backed up with 2x M6 extra safety bolts.
Frontwing connection: The flat surface with a recess in the centre and 3x M8-Bolts is offering the stiffest and most reliable front wing connection available.
Backwing connection: The flat surface with a centre recess and multiple m6 inserts guarantees precise backwing trim options with a stiff and reliable connection.
DESIGN GOALS Our target was to create high-performance foils with full compatibility for all foiling sports and disciplines. We wanted this foil system to be commercially available at different price levels from the “whatever-it-takes world cup level” to the demanding needs of more price sensitive customers. The AEON has been designed for maximum control – easing the fight of mastering 3-dimensional flight for both the skilled world cup rider fighting in the pack and the indermediate rider. Having one connection system for wind-, wing-, prone- and kite-foiling is a massive economic advantage for multi sport users and allows every rider to find his perfect personal setup easily. At the same time the multi-sport option opens a much bigger market to resell AEON foil parts. The AEON will be vailable in our retail network as a complete high-performance foil system that can fulfil any waterman's wishes and needs. One system can do it all!
MAN VS. MACHINE The massive success of the AEON-Foil in both Windsurfing AND Wing-Foiling is the result of our PATRIK R&D crew’s precise and hard work. Our products are being developed in a unique hybrid process where the human brain (knowledge) and hands (feeling) are clearly leading the computer aided design – not the other way around. Like this we’re able to design perfect products that no “A.I.” (artificial intelligence) could ever create. Fun-Fact: CFD (computational fluid dynamic) programs are created by humans, fed with data based on past practical tests, but will never be able to calculate completely new results outside their given data range. The PATRIK-Crew is practically developing and testing gear outside that software range and our results will be used later to feed and update currently available CFD programs.
SINGLE PARTS VS. SETS After our R&D Team had found peak performance in individual outlines and shapes they had individual wishes for flex and twist resulting in different “magic” combinations of AEON parts. Offering all parts separately gives the top riders the freedom to find their magic setup while the indermediate riders can choose the best combo for their budget.
