Horue has announced the launch of Vini 2016, a lightweight plug-and-play wind foil designed for light and medium winds.
The Horue Vini is a 100-percent carbon system entirely designed on CAD, and developed with the goal of reducing drag in light wind conditions, allowing windsurfers to use smaller sails.
There will be three models available to the general public: the Cruising Front Wing, the Lightwind Front Wing, and the Xtreme Lightwind Front Wing. The French brand will market the wind foils from 1,400 euros.
Windsurfing and kiteboarding are picking up on foils. Horue is currently focusing on foils for windsurfers, kiteboarders and even wakeboarders. The company is also developing strapless foil boards for experienced riders.
Recently, Horue launched the Tiny 200, a 200-centimeter windsurf board specially designed for early planing and immediate turns. The plank weighs 6.7 kilograms with its four straps.
