Liquid Force 2024 Carbon Horizon Foil Surf Sets - with Size 155 Front Wing
CARBON HORIZON SURF 155 - A True "Go Everywhere, Do Everything" Foil!
As the bread winner of the Horizon Range, the Carbon Horizon Surf 155 finds the perfect balance between lift, speed, and control. With a slightly thinner profile front wing, the 155 generates huge amounts of lift while the H24 tail wing provides added drive for stable pumping.
The Carbon Horizon 155 Foil Set is an underwater version of those crazy jets that take off vertically. It's designed to generate maximum lift at low speeds, helping foilers of all skills experience the unreal feeling of gliding through any conditions. Liquid Force is leading the way with their wakefoil R&D, and this medium aspect wing shows what's possible: it brings that low-speed lift to those just starting out and insane hold and acceleration to more experienced foilers.
All in all, you’ll have a lightweight, hydrodynamic machine with superior hold through extended carves…allowing you to truly Foil Anything.
Benefits of 155:-
- Designed for Foilers wanting an ultralight setup, looking to foil anything! From little bumps to large rollers…the Horizon Surf 155 can handle it all.
- Full 3K Pre-Preg Carbon Construction for minimal weight, and maximum strength.
- Take your foiling beyond the wake! Excels as a light-wind foil for Winging!
Features of 155:-
- Horizon 155 Front Wing - Surface Area 1500 cm² | 80 cm Wingspan
- H24 Rear Stabilizer Wing - Surface Area 240 cm² | 37 cm Wingspan
- 28" Carbon Mast
- 44 cm Short Bayonet Fuselage - By shortening the fuselage, LF shortened the "wheelbase," allowing for faster turns and more playfulness beneath the water.
- Foil Shim Kit Included - Shimming your foil lets you really fine tune your tail wing angle so you have the right amount of lift and speed for how you want to ride. Reduce the angle for faster speeds or increase the angle for slower speeds. Go ahead and customize it to your liking.
- Lightweight Carbon Construction – The ultra hydrodynamic profile of the assembly brings faster speeds and less drag.
- Carrying Case
Aspects of Foil Technology and Terminology
Stability can be thought of as the ability to recover with minimal effort. Highly stable foils will allow you to make mistakes and get off balance but wont effect your ride or ability to maintain lift. These foils are not as agile or nimble and can not be turned as hard or used as aggressively. The Horizon 190 and 155 would fall into this category. At the other end you will find the Glider 95 which is highly maneuverable, but you need to be a bit more on you’re A game to harness the magic.
Good pumping foils give good glide and enough lift with minimal effort put in by the rider. With every physical movement expended by the rider, the foil needs to translate that into speed and forward movement. Bigger foils can go slower and are easy to get going at the begging. The Horizon 190 is a great foil for dock starts and starting from zero. The Glider series needs speed to start but once you are going, it is much easier to maintain momentum.
- High Aspect = High Speed
- Medium Aspect = Medium Speed
The speed can be directly related to the efficiency of the wing. The High Aspect Wings have lower drag and therefore are able to reach higher speeds. By the same token, size affects the speed as well. Smaller wings can go faster due to the lower drag.
Area is the first indicator of how the foil will perform. Larger area wings are made for going slower and accommodating heavier riders. Smaller wings will be faster. Area is not an indicator of skill level. Smaller wings will be used by both novice and advanced riders. Advanced riders will gravitate towards smaller wings due to the increase in speed that is possible. Novice riders will also gravitate towards smaller wings as the lift of the smaller wings is less and more manageable for the first time rider.
Wingspan, defined as the tip to tip distance of a foil. The Wingspan primarily controls a foils ability to roil. The shorter the wingspan the easier it is to roll the wing over and get a high banking turn. The Wingspan also effects the drag and overall speed of the wing. For a wing of a given area and lift profile, extending the wingspan allows you to shorten the chord length while keeping a similar amount of lift. This usually equates to lower drag and a higher speed foil.
Defined as the wingspan ^2 divided by the wing area (B^2/S), the aspect ratio is the defining term for the efficiency of a foil. Typically speaking , the higher the aspect the more efficient the foil is. This leads to longer glides and higher speeds. The higher aspect wings have a higher level of required skill to ride and are not as forgiving as a medium aspect wing. Most beginner to intermediate riders will gravitate towards a medium aspect foil (3-6) due to the ability to achieve lift at lower speeds and bigger sweet spot that allows for easy recoveries while foiling. Advanced riders will gravitate towards a high aspect roil (7-10) as the overall speed the foil can go and generate is much higher. This leads to more progressive foiling.
Foils can be ridden in just about any conditions. That is the beauty of it. Foils allow the previously unrideable to be ridden and give new life to the status quo. Within the seemingly endless variety of conditions that occur, there are designs that are better suited for the conditions. Bigger waves will require smaller faster foils while smaller waves need bigger foils. The Horizon line (Medium-Aspect) covers pretty much all conditions you will find yourself in a lake. The 190 will work for jetskis and direct drives. The 155 will work on any watercraft that can tow you. The 120 will be best suited for your traditional surf/wake boat. The Glider line (High Aspect) will take you even further. The 115 works great for your surf/wake boat and the 95 while also working in those conditions will get you out into the ocean surf as your foiling expands into new realms.
