The PRO canopy is built using the super tough & low-stretch X-ply technology. X-ply is the latest development in our quest to improve wing performance through superior materials.
X-ply is a composite material that has 20.5x less bias distortion compared to regular canopy materials – meaning it has minimal stretch or warp and therefore significantly reduces wing deformation. This high-strength composite also has a 6x higher total failure tolerance under extreme load versus traditional composite materials used in wing canopies.
X-ply creates a durable, taught and fast wing canopy that doesn’t stretch over its lifetime and is extra locked in for racing. The X-ply material is designed for impact, so it is able to take on a beating from boards and foils which normally would destroy a canopy.
Developed in conjection with Challenge Sailcloth, Ho’okipa™ is a unique composite built with a reliable woven structure, supercharged through Ultra-PE fibres, which are 32x stronger than polyester at the same weight. This tensile strength allows a Ho’okipa™ leading edge & strut to be inflated to significantly higher pressures, creating a wing that is lighter and more responsive than anything else on the market.
The high-pressure leading edge has a reduced diameter for minimum drag and higher speeds.

FOR EVERY FREEWING SOLD
FreeWing plants 1 mangrove tree with Worldview International Foundation. Each Mighty Mangrove sinks down 673kg of VCS-certified CO2 during its first 25 years.
Offsetting the wings Carbon Emissions more than 10 X over while also funding livelihood projects in Myanmar.
We also collect 1.1 kg of beach / ocean plastic trash – equivalent to the amount of plastic trash entering the ocean, per person, per year. FreeWing balances this amount for our customers.
