The SIC Raptor Wing has been designed and rigorously tested by the team on Maui and Europe. The wing’s leading edge utilizes a ultra-rigid, non-stretch, Dacron. Wich improves airflow, flight stability, and prevents seam bulging on the leading edge. Expect snappy turns, explosive lift, and smooth sailing upwind.
The wing’s high aspect ratio 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.
Our Triple Dura-Force canopy materials, a high- performance fabric, is strengthened with a unique coating process. Triple Dura-Force sets the standard in breaking strength, tear resistance, UV protection, elongation, and overall durability. Feel the tight, crisp signature only a Dura-Force built wing delivers.
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 and 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 maximum airflow with very low resistance. Combined with the high quality double stroke pump, it only takes a few minutes to inflate the wing. The pump hose is connected directly to the valve. It has an automatic airflow reflex diaphragm that prevents any loss of pressure when the pump is removed. When draining, simply unscrew the entire valve and the Wing is drained in an instant.
The front tube and center strut are inflated by two independent valves. This allows the air pressure in each tube to be varied to adjust the Wing according to conditions. In lighter winds, a slightly lower pressure in the front tube (6-7 psi) can help pump up the Wing.
When the Wing is inflated to 8 psi, this results in better control and stability in high winds. The center strut should always be inflated to 8 psi to provide enough tension and stiffness to the wing.
