F-One Strike V2
As low as £925.00
From light to high winds, you will discover the full potential of the F-One Strike V2 wing. Thanks to its unique design and construction, the sensations on the water are unique.
The work done on the control of the deformation of the wing offers more power, fantastic upwind performances, stability and control. This feeling of control will allow you to push the Strike V2 into jumps and air rotations.
You are in total comfort at all time, the Strike’s has the perfect traction balance between your two arms. The handles are perfectly placed, and you won’t suffer from too much pull on your back arm on the long legs. Going upwind has never been so efficient.
The impressive stability of the Strike V2 will make you forget about it when in freefly surfing wind swells.
While the industry trends towards the “all-rigid”, F-One have developed the Adaptive Wing Design, a unique concept offering the perfect balance between performance and comfort.
It is difficult and uncomfortable to handle a stiff, handheld wing in the high end, especially without a harness. A wing must be able to absorb that power, just like the mast bend or the opening of the leech in windsurfing or the depower in kitesurfing.
The Strike V2’s Adaptive Wing Design transforms every gust into positive energy and enables a perfect control of the traction. This new wing is designed to adapt through a controlled deformation that allows the preservation of a high-performance profile and unprecedented stability throughout the entire range of use.
To reach this result, F-One have modified the shape of the central strut. Its cut is now segmented, allowing for an improved control of its curve and its deformations. We also enhanced the wing’s twist.
Strike for SUP Paddle Boarding:
If you have a paddleboard, then you need the Strike to go with it, it’s no fun paddling in 10 knots, but the F-One Strike means you can use your paddleboard no matter the conditions. It’s much safer than kitesurfing and is perfect for getting kids involved in water sports. You can learn about the wind and the power you can harness, simply sheet in to get going, then just let go and the power is gone.
It’s great fun, and the wings are small and compact, they are the perfect addition to a paddle to get power on the water. With no lines you can take the Strike anywhere, allowing you to access spots that were not possible with a kite. As you improve your skills, it’s time to step up into the world of foiling with the Strike.
Strike for Hydrofoiling:
Surf foilers, SUP foilers and kite foilers are going to love the Strike, the possibilities are endless, and this new sport is only just beginning. By using the power of the wing combined with a surf foil, you can fly upwind at incredible speeds. Then, you can depower the wing, and surf foil on the swells downwind, it adds an element of safety knowing if you miss a swell, you have the power to catch the next one.
Because the Strike isn’t attached to the board and is very light, there is no additional weight. This means you can ride much smaller, more compact boards, depending on your skill level. All the power transfers through you, to the board and hydrofoil going through your body, you are in total control.
If the beach is busy or has been banned kiteboarding, then you will have no problems using the Strike, there are no lines to lay out, meaning you can launch from tiny beaches and even boats with ease. All you need is a little power in the Strike and a few pumps, and you’ll be up and flying on the foil, experiencing a totally new feeling that is hard to beat. Everyone who tries it gets hooked, and it is easy to learn if you have a foil experience already.
- Integrated Grab Handles - Lightweight & no extras parts

The Strike V2 wings have a unique canopy tension that can be compared to that of a harden up windsurfing rig. The Strike wings are therefore “pre-tensioned” and made to adapt. This ideal tension of the trailing edge when riding guarantees much better performances upwind and in light winds.
The Strike V2 wings are quite literally at your fingertips with a small diameter and a rectangular shape, with flatter parts that fit right into your phalanges. You don’t have to firmly grasp the handles constantly.
Once again, F-One went for softness instead of rigidity, so you always have the perfect angle between the wing and your arms. As our wing is already extremely stable, rigid handles weren’t necessary. With our softer, lighter, more comfortable, and well-thought-out handles, you won’t hurt or exert yourself, nor damage the canopy while packing your gear.
The Strike V2 keeps the stability by respecting the profile and the wing’s centre of traction while in motion. The traction is constant and homogeneous. This improved in-flight stability allows you to keep better control of your foil and your trajectories, no matter your skill level.
The Strike V2 provides smooth and precise steering abilities and works for you thanks to the Adaptive Wing Design.
The tensions of the fabric and profile’s distribution are improved. A new panel orientation along the warp line offers a better control and extended durability by ideally adjusting the fabric in the right direction.
The infill is kept to a minimum to ensure profile control without adding weight, and to maintain a good field of view.
The Strike V2 will be inconspicuous during your free flying sessions so you can fully focus on your surfs or on the swell.
One of the unmatched qualities of the Strike V2 is that they pull you forward, not sideways. The traction of the Strike V2 has been improved particularly for strong winds: you only need to sheet out to feel the power decrease and the traction go forward. It offers great navigation comfort upwind and allows you to push the limits of the high end with less efforts. In the low end, the traction is steady and does not require any adjustments. Just sheet in and the wing works for you.
With its unparalleled upwind capabilities, the Strike V2 will increase your free flying time or help you win races. Its speed performance also allows you to jump higher and to benefit from an excellent lift for landings. Its compact design, with less wingspan offers more possibilities for tricks and a more comfortable navigation with your hands positioned lower.
Through its constant traction, control, lightweight and stability, this wing is perfect for freeriding no matter your skill level. Its power and pumping efficiency are its strengths to get planing and exploit the low end.
Expanded Wind Range:
F-One have worked extensively on the range of use of their wings to guarantee a great planing start and the possibility to ride in light wind. Simultaneously, F-One have pushed each size as far as possible in the high end to keep your riding flow in any conditions.
What are the advantages?
- A single wing is enough to give you a full range of use and comfort of navigation when the wind drops or picks up during your session.
- Gain more lift during jumps and enjoy smoother landings while keeping the same wing size in the high end.
- Start planing earlier, and thus reduce the volume and size of your board.
New V2 Sizes:
The ideal minimum area of a wing can be 2.5m and the maximum 5.5m without using our 3-strut CWC patent. The Strike V2 will therefore be available from 2.5m to 5.5m, and will offer a new size distribution with: 2.5m, 3m, 3.5m, 4m, 4.5m, 5 m and 5.5m
This could also allow heavier riders to choose among 3.5m, 4.5m, 5.5m, and the lighter ones to pick between 3m, 4m, 5m.
The Strike V2's dynamic stability in flight makes everything easier for you while on your foil. It provides remarkable forward traction over the entire range of use, allowing incredible feats. Whether a pro rider or a beginner, your potential with it is exceptional.
