The original Mantis set a benchmark with regards to leading edge rigidity, and this year it has been even further refined, culminating in an ultra-rigid frame and also refined profile. Combined with a pretensioned canopy, this gives a crisp high performing product that maintains its performance through a wider range of conditions.
Refined sizing and wingspans allow for more progressive power in the small sizes, while the wingtip shape adjustment helps deflect water during start up, and also allows for deeper profiles to aid in power delivery.
The Mantis V2 showcases Cabrinha’s forward driving wing program and puts the ultimate in technology and efficiency into your hands to maximize water time and performance.
Leading Edge Inflatable Dihedral with a medium aspect ratio outline, rigid frame and lightweight design.
Features of the :02 Mantis Wing with Windows
NEW Increased Dihedral
Balanced dihedral for power to stability ratio. Many prototypes allowed Cabrinha to arrive with the balanced dihedral on the Mantis V2. This gives a great blend of power to stability ratio.
NEW Revised Twist for Improved Range
Through the updated shape and dihedral, the Mantis V2 has an increased power range which covers a larger spectrum of conditions.
High Center-LE Diameter and Progressive Taper
For improved stiffness & canopy tension, with upwind efficiency. Increased centre diameter to the leading edge, as well as a progressive taper provides not only improved stiffness, but also increased canopy tension.
Controllable Power in a Wide Range of Wind Conditions
HD Large Diameter Closing Seam Construction
A larger stiffer diameter LE requires an updated closing seam contribution to withstand the unique forces that winging provides.
High Rigidity Single Strut
For low weight and predictable depower. A single highly rigid strut allows for a lower weight and predictable depower when on a wave.
Nano Tech Ripstop
A higher level of performance can only be achieved when the wings's design properties are supported by a stable and reactive wing material. Nano Ripstop does just that.
Kevlar Wing Tip Reinforcement and Refined Wingtips
A change in the wingtip shape not only aids in canopy control and stability, but also reduces the chance of a wing tip catch when getting up and pumping.
Sit back and enjoy the view with perfect vision. When spots are busy with other water users the extended vision greatly impacts on the safety of you and others.
Ergonomic widespan handle layout for micro adjustment/trim.
