The new BLASTER hydrofoil from ZEEKO completes the hydrofoil range.
Focused on a wide range of uses, thanks to its ease of ride and strength of G10 wings it’s perfectly suited for beginners. Its new design allows the BLASTER to have excellent value for money.
– New shorter fuselage for better maneuverability
– Extended stabilizer
– Unrivaled strength
– Reduced wing ventilation with AVS (anti ventilation skin)
– Accessibility and versatility
Our new, highly accessible Blaster hydrofoil is perfect for beginners because of its ease and sturdiness, but also for the more experienced looking for fun and good sensations.
The foil has been developed for maximum stability, a low take-off speed and low speed riding, allowing you to progress calmly.
The wings are machined to reduce ventilation as they come out of the water. This innovation is especially suitable for beginners who do not manage the balance of the foil correctly.
ACCESSIBILITY & FREERIDE
This new model will allow beginners to start to ride with an easy-to-access hydrofoil. The wings made of G10 provide strength and confidence. It is perfect for more experienced riders for Freeride / Carving use thanks to the size of the wings.
The foil can satisfy most of the riders with its versatility, maneuverability and accessibility that will allow beginners to get their first rides in the air quickly.
This new Blaster becomes the best value for money on the market. Its shorter fuselage provides greater maneuverability and its large area stabilizer provides a great pitch control which facilitates the ride experience.
Despite the short fuselage, thanks to the large area stabilizer, the foil remains very easy to control.
Several lengths of masts are available (40cm, 60cm, 90cm, 96cm). A shorter mast will be more suitable for beginners. Indeed, the balance will be easier to find. For more advanced riders, a longer mast would be more adequate.
The 4cm vertical fin provides greater stability by reducing the yawing effect. The control will be at the best despite the wind conditions. However, it is possible to install a smaller fin (2.5cm) to get better turning ability.
New G10 wing machining process optimizes ride control and hydrodynamics.
The best value for money on the market, while continuing to innovate.
ANTI VENTILATION SKIN (AVS)
The wings have been designed in such a way that the foil is easily accessible to the most . Thus the top (extrados) of each wing has been striated to increase stability and minimize the effect of ventilation.
The ventilation is created when the wing comes out of the water and creates an air bubble that will spread over the entire span and will thus lose all the lift of the foil in the water, the hydrofoil is out of control.
The grooves prevent this from happening making the foil more forgivable to rider errors.
What is ventilation?
Hydrofoil wing ventilation occurs violently when ambient air enters the surface of your foil wing as it approaches the surface of the water. This results in an inevitable fall, whether you are an expert or a beginner.
The Anti Ventilation Skin (AVS) is a new process for manufacturing G10 made foil wings. Thanks to a 3-dimensional grooving of the wings, it is now possible to reduce the ventilation phenomena to a minimum. The AVS acts like a multitude of fences or a shark skin preventing the air from rushing all along the wing.
With the AVS do not fall any more when your foil wing is close to the surface of the water. Gain confidence and ride without thinking.
ZEEKO ALLOY SERIES
Mast, platinum and fuselage
All our foils are made of a specific aluminum alloy (different from the 6061 alloys of most foils on the market). This alloy makes it possible to increase the stiffness of the foils, but also to offer unequaled resistance to corrosion.
Also, most foils in the market are usually only anodized. The ZEEKO foils are both anodized and painted with a paint increasing the glide as well as the performance of the foil.
Front and rear wings
The profile of the front and rear wings has been studied and developed to achieve maximum comfort and stability.
Both wings are made of G10 for strength and ease of repair in case of shocks. This method by machining makes it possible to optimize the performance and especially to delay the phenomena of ventilation
A new assembling method improves the lift and drag of the foil.
The front wing is fixed on the top of the fuselage and the rear wing on the underside.
Thus the hydrodynamic drag of the foil is reduced.
The front wing of 750cm² is ideal to start at low speed. In freeride, the handling of the foil allows to progress very quickly without being limited as with a foil designed exclusively for beginners.
The increased area stabilizer gives the Blaster unparalleled stability despite the short fuselage.
Begin your journey, evolve, keep Blasting!
The 4cm vertical fin offers great stability especially on the yaw effect (perfect for beginners). It can be replaced by a smaller fin (2.5cm) for more maneuverability.
All the fins of Twin-Tip are compatible with this foil.
Fuselage more hydrodynamic
A new manufacturing of fuselages in 5-axis machining allows us to remove the holes on the top. This results in a reduction of the drag of the foil. The short fuselage makes the foil fun while keeping an extraordinary control.
SALT WATER AND ALUMINUM
All aluminum parts are anodised and painted, offering double protection. The aluminum used is the most resistant to salt water. It is recommended to use T-Gel for the screws provided during the purchase.
New Stiffer plate
The Blaster foil plate has been redesigned to make it easy to connect to the board. Indeed, it is no longer necessary to completely unscrew the 4 fastening screws. It is enough to loosen by a quarter turn the 4 screws of connection to the board, and the foil is disassembled.
In this sport, stiffness is a key of the design. It is for this reason that we chose to strengthen the plate with an additional reinforcement around the mast. This allows to reduces the mast flex and get a better board/foil connection and a better feeling with a more direct feeling.
Available board connections:
– Two U.S rails
– Tuttle Box
– KF Box
The board is compatible with all the boards on the market, two distances are available : 165X90mm or 160X85mm
