The EPICWING 5-meter has been designed to be a stable and powerful wing that is exciting, comfortable and very fun to ride. The amazing low end power will have you up on plane quickly. You’ll really enjoy both the performance and safety features of our wing. It responds to input with immediacy and has a lively and intuitive feel. Give yourself the reward of the prefect session.
The wing craze has taken the kiteboarding industry by storm, and we’re excited by the versatility this new sport offers. Winging has deep roots in windsurfing, kiteboarding and foil boarding. We’ve taken great care in designing, developing and testing the EPICWING. In creating the design brief for the EPICWING, Dimitri Maramenides drew from the knowledge of his 22-year windsurfing career. This vast experience in windsurfing and kiteboarding has given the EPICWING a very robust set of performance characteristics that the test team has been thrilled with. Our Australian based wing designer has been working tirelessly to ensure the very best performance. We’ve been testing the EPICWING in Australia, Europe and the U.S.A.
The EPICWING comes in 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7-meter sizes.
The wing has two long stiff grab handles on the strut for increased grip. This enables easy hand movement up and down the strut while always maintaining control. For easier water starts, we’ve included a soft handle mid strut. Additional handles closer to the leading edge offer stance and grip variety as the rider manipulates the wing. One tester recalls, “I just tried the 5 meter from brand x and then the Epic 5 meter and I just can’t believe the difference. It had so much power and stability. The water starts were super easy with just one pump I was up and riding on a foil. It’s also very easy on the arms”.
Another EPICWING tester excitedly claims, “I can’t believe how high I jumped in such light wind on the 7-meter. I might have to ask my wife to get me one for my birthday”.
“I was trying to do some tacks on my [competitor] wing and had a hard time. But as soon as I jumped on the 6-meter EPICWING, I was making my tacks 10 out of 10 times. The performance is just incredible. I am getting one this week,” commented another tester. Other first hand accounts can be found in our testimonial video section.
Clearly people have been impressed with how powerful the wing is, how user friendly it felt and that tapping into the depower felt extremely natural. Others commented on how well balance and full of energy if felt. But one thing they all spoke of was the fact that they wished they’d tried the EPICWING before making other purchases.
The wing itself has a powerful shape delivering smooth low end power. The shape is largely responsible for the stable and controlled performance in both overpowered and underpowered conditions. We use a medium aspect ratio to provide that grunt and it also keeps the tips of the wing from catching the water. Our entire wing is well built with generous protection in key areas to prevent damage.
Like all Epic products, careful attention has been paid to quality, durability and detail. This is critically important when manufacturing a balanced wing. A well balanced wing allows for a predicable and intuitive feel.
One of the most unique features of the EPICWING are the small transparent panels. These windows easily allow you to see where you’re going without obstruction. To give the perfect view, and provide maximum safety, the windows have been placed on the lower portion of the wing.
To make rigging quick and easy, you’ll find a large inflate/deflate valve on the leading edge. The one pump inflation system also has a large diameter deflate valve on the strut. All this gets you on the water faster, and makes pack down a breeze.
You’ll absolutely love the EPICWING when riding your foil board. But why stop there? Our wing is very versatile and completely at home riding SUPs, surfboards, snowboards, skiis, skateboards and even mountain boards… anything that requires or enables movement. The amazing maneuverability makes jibes, tacking, freestyle and cruising in waves absolutely effortless. An ergonomically shaped strut improves the overall handling and the EVA covered handles offer the best grip and comfort you could possibly wish for.
The bag comes with several packing options. You can use it as a small compact back pack for short storage periods. We don’t recommend this for long periods to prevent creases in the windows. The second option is to extend the bag so the windows can be rolled opposed to folded. This will greatly increase the longevity of your wing. The third option is to keep the strut inflated as the bag further expands by opening the bottom and using the mesh extension.
