PLAYFUL ALL-AROUND KITE FOIL
The 2019 Hover Glide FKite package is equipped with the Space skate (H4) front wing instead of the H5 wing of the prior two years. The H5 was (and is) a great all-around wing, but now that Slingshot have it dialed, the H4 is the obvious evolution for the FKite package.
All Hover Glide wings have been reengineered for 2019. New carbon composite is significantly lighter than years past, but still a lot less expensive than the high-end carbon only a select few foilers ever need.
The magic feel of the H4 wing comes from its arched “batwing” shape that essentially acts as a self-centering device as you ride. When you lean into a turn and let off, it wants to find level flight rather than continuing at the same angle and requiring rider input to correct.
The result is a super playful and forgiving feel that lets you bounce from turn to turn like you’re carving down a fresh patch of pavement on a longboard- hence its name, the Space Skate.
