NeilPryde GLIDE Swift creates a playground for building new surfing sensations. With a stable and fast take off no matter the surf conditions, the NeilPryde GLIDE Swift delivers superior gliding and controlled speed to ride waves as far as they can flow. On the wave, the NeilPryde GLIDE Swift allows you to fly through the sections and progress from straight riding to progressive foil-turns. Your imagination is now the only limitation to how you will use the waves and how far you will fly.
Achieve optimal efficiency with our meticulously designed foils, crafted with a high-quality pre-preg carbon layup for superior performance. Experience unparalleled speed and streamlined performance.
Our foils feature reliable and fast connections, ensuring a smooth ride every time. At our NeilPryde Maui Design Center, our foils are meticulously crafted and rigorously tested by Nils Rosenblad, a renowned sail designer and America’s Cup engineer. We take pride in incorporating feedback from our global team to continuously improve our products. With an unwavering commitment to excellence, we leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of being the best in the industry.
Full carbon, high aspect ratio front wing
High modulus carbon mast for perfect stiffness
Blended mast-fuselage connection for lowest possible drag
Unique swept back front wing for speed and stability
Works for everyone, from beginners to experts
What are the major advancements from the previous Glide Wings ?
The NeilPryde GLIDE Swift foil represents a departure from the original Glide concept, offering a unique blend of glide and performance. Its medium/high aspect ratio combines the efficiency of high aspect foils with the user-friendly characteristics of medium aspect foils.
Front Wing Details
The carbon front wing is designed with an inflected leading edge, featuring outer high-aspect sections and a moderate center sweep, enhancing agility and providing control during sharp turns. The low-drag wingtips not only reduce drag but also minimize the risk of injury
The swept wing design of the tail, with turned up wingtips, strikes a balance between speed, stability, and maneuverability. Its sweep contributes to remarkable stability relative to its size, while maintaining responsiveness and forgiving turning capabilities.
Variable Aspect Ratio
The aspect ratio of the front wings varies across sizes, ranging from 9.1 in the smallest 600cm2 wing to 7.3 in the largest 1450 cm2 wing. This ensures optimized glide performance in each size without compromising turning and control.
The super stiff carbon mast and the optimized mast-fuselage connection deliver maximum speeds and a direct steering feel, thanks to their high stability. The integrated blended-fuselage connection reduces drag and enhances stiffness by increasing the chord thickness at the fuse. Additionally, the turned up and rounded wingtips optimize overall performance while reducing the risk of injury.
Is the NeilPryde Glide Swift compatible with the rest of the Glide System ?
All components of the Glide system are compatible with each other, giving you the flexibility to choose between purchasing a complete Glide Swift system or individual front and tail wings.
For more information on compatibility, please refer to the details provided further down this page.
GLIDE SERIES FEATURES
|Lift & Acceleration||Smooth, early lift for easy takeoff and touchdown, even at low speeds.|
|Glide and Stability||Long glides and stable rides.|
|Dihedral Front Profile||Glide Series is designed to be able to rip through radical turns. The dihedral medium aspect ratio of the front wings allow you to keep generating lift even when the foil is radically tilted to one side or another. You will come out of turns with more speed and lift than you went in with.|
|Smooth Edges||Because safety is no accident. Our Glide Series wings are some of the safest high-performance wings on the market.|
|Glide Series Compatibility||· Glide Series components are designed to work seamlessly with each other.
· Glide Aluminum masts will fit Glide Aluminum Fuselages and Glide Carbon masts will fit Glide Carbon Fuselages.
· All Glide front wings and tail wings will fit on all Glide fuselages
|Streamlined Connections||Glide Swift Carbon features an updated wing to fuselage connection for maximum strength, stiffness and the most streamlined water flow possible.|
All foils are supplied with a T-40 torx drive, and come with titanium plated stainless steel bolts for maximum strength to weight ratio, preventing any corrosion problems.
WHAT THE RIDERS SAY
Vinnicius Martins – Love at First Sight. “Since I tried the Swift for the first time I was in love with the foil! It is so intuitive, easy to use and has superior maneuverability. The perfect foil for an unforgettable day on the water”
Yentel Caers – Won the first ever Foil Style windsurf foiling event ever on the Glide Swift at EFPT Vieste!. “I was using the new Swift foil in Vieste, the 800. I put a bigger tail wing to compensate for the short fuselage. It is the best foil I have ever tried for winging and foil style windsurfing!”
