High Modulus ‘R’ Series Front Wings-Versatile downwind wings!
We are excited to welcome the high modulus downwind specific front wings to our range. These wings are designed for the growing discipline of downwind SUP foiling.
The team has worked hard on its construction, creating a super lightweight front wing with phenomenal stiffness for its span. The High Modulus R Series are made with High Modulus carbon and are of the build quality users will be familiar with from other Code Foils products.
The 860R High Modulus and 770R High Modulus were both used by World Champion James Casey to win major races in Hawaii this year. The 860R won the Molokai 2 Oahu Downwind World Championship. The 770R won Paddle Imua, a shorter, sprint style race.

These wings are designed for a wide speed range and efficient pumping. They are not as manoeuvrable as some other wings, but they glide forever and still turn. We call them our “longboard foils” because of their long, stable design.
The High Modulus 860R and 770R have an incredible low end for their size. James Casey demonstrated this by winning the M2O with a flatwater start and a challenging finish in upwind conditions. Ben Tardrew also used the 860R to battle for a win and end up on the podium in a nearly windless Hood River challenge against the best in the world.
If you are looking for a wing that will let you go fast and far in downwind conditions, then the 860R or 770R is the wing for you.
We are particularly proud to release the long-awaited R series front wings. These wings were designed to win the M20 race. Not only did we achieve that, but the versatility of the R series also led to a podium finish in light conditions at Hood River. You’ll notice the strength and stiffness for their aspect ratio. The construction is rock solid, and the sensational and effortless glide of the R series is sure to impress.
