EXPECT SNAPPY TURNS, EXPLOSIVE LIFT, AND SMOOTH SAILING UPWIND

The all-new SIC Raptor wing has been designed and rigorously tested by the team on Maui and Europe. Working in collaboration with sister company CORE Kiteboarding, a leader in kite design and technology, SIC is proud to introduce this series of performance wings.

The SIC Raptor wing is part of the Raptor Series including the Raptor wing foil board and Raptor foils.

The wing’s leading edge utilizes our ultra-rigid, non-stretch, ExoTex® Dacron, which incorporates a unique thread structure and emulsion (protective coating) process that allows for a higher-pressure airframe and substantially increases tube strength and rigidity. The non-stretch Dacron improves airflow, flight stability and prevents seam bulging on the leading edge.

Industry-leading, CORETEX® TRIPLE RIPSTOP canopy materials, developed by CORE Kiteboarding, is only available on the SIC Raptor wings. This high performance fabric is protected and strengthened with a unique coating process. CORETEX® sets the standard in breaking strength, tear resistance, UV protection, elongation, and overall durability. Feel the tight, crisp signature only a CORETEX® built wing delivers.

The low aspect ratio of the wing provides tremendous power and due to the shorter wingspan, it reduces the chance of your wing tip dragging in the water when powering up, tacking, jibing and board touch-downs.

The Raptor wing uses an in-flow panel connecting the canopy with the control strut, ensuring that the wing maintains the most efficient aerodynamic profile during acceleration and cruising speed.

The web handle loops help maintain control, trim, and comfort.

The RUSH-AIR valve system enables you to quickly inflate the wing to the requested inflation pressure with little effort as well as allows you to deflate the wing in case of pressure adjustment or when you want to pack up the wing.

RUSH-AIR VALVES

The large diameter inflation valves allow a maximized airflow with very little resistance. In combination with the high-quality, dual-action pump, filling your wing takes a matter of only minutes. The pump hose connects directly to the valve. No, nozzles are needed. It has an automatic airflow reflex membrane eliminating any loss in air pressure when detaching the pump. The valve cap is easy and secure, also helping to maintain the air pressure. When delating, simply unscrew the whole valve, and the wings will deflate in an instant.

Two valves have their advantages: The leading edge and control strut are inflated by two independent valves. This allows you to vary the inflation pressure in each bladder to fine tune the wing according to the conditions. In lighter winds, a little less pressure in the LE (6-7 psi) can help with wing pumping efficiency. When inflated 8 psi, you will have better high-wind control and wing stability. The control strut should always be pumped to 8 psi to tension the canopy sufficiently to have a rigid boom.

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.
