Shinn Model K2 Carbon Hydrofoil

Introduced last year the K2 foil incorporated new levels of stability and control in a foil that was fast, easy to use, and incredibly pitch stable. For 2020 we raise the bar once again by offering this foil with our all-new Carbon composite mast.
With more than 2 years R and D and over 30 prototypes made it would be fair to say the quest to find the perfect carbon mast was a little more complicated than it first appeared. Not content with simply building a “black foil” we’ve held back from releasing anything until every box was ticked.
Why are carbon foils special? Stiffness, stiffness, and more stiffness (plus a little less weight). During foiling the rider is up to 1 metre above the foil, it’s long-distance control, 1cm of flex at wing level is magnified by a factor of X to where you stand – imagine trying to push a button with a 1m long flexible stick or driving a car with flat tyres, each control input you make is magnified and delayed causing instability and even the most talented riders to wobble. If your serious about foiling and want to raise your game to the next level carbon is the only way forwards.
Built using our proprietary hi-modulus, multi-axial carbon sandwich construction, and featuring an innovative new Hollow-Tech integrated mounting plate with fast mount slide on/off fasteners. This foil uses a dedicated fuselage but is compatible with all existing Shinn wings and stabilizers.

Testimonials

★★★★★

This is the way a kiteboarding shop should be. Staff are super friendly. They take the time to understand your requirements, provide advice and never put any pressure on you to buy anything. There's a huge range of stock and I've been able to demo a great range of kites and boards over the years.
After sales service is the best. Recently I had an issue with a kite I'd bought there which was well out of warranty and they didn't hesitate to inspect, diagnose and repair the issue for me and get me back on the water.

You can’t go wrong buying your kites, boards, foils, and all your gear from Kitepower - and I’ll tell you why. The culture of the business mirrors the passion and dedication of the company’s founder, Steve McCormack. And culture matters. When you purchase from Kitepower you’re purchasing from a team of kiting enthusiasts and experts who will look after you. You’ll be purchasing from a family owned business that will do the right thing and put your safety and comfort first. I fully understand that you might not have an opportunity to meet Steve. And maybe if you're purchasing online you won't step foot inside their Sydney location. But I can tell you that Steve’s dedication to kiters and to the sport of kiting is imprinted into the DNA of Kitepower and the team.
