A new Era of
Age, fitness & ability are no longer
a constraint to flying.
VORTEX POD Racer
The Vortex pod racer has been specifically designed to make high-speed foiling both safe and accessible to a larger audience. Eliminating the previously prohibitive factors of agility, fitness and sailing knowledge, the Vortex pod racer moves high-performance foiling into a new era and brings foiler flying to experienced sailors, novice pilots and extreme sports enthusiasts alike.
Ergonomic race seat in CNC and EVA foam for comfort.
The curved wing shape maximises clearance and air draft, particularly when the foils are deployed.
High-tech cockpit with sail controls and digital electronics.
The dynamic dreadnought bow shape maximises the waterline length and therefore hull speed while the chamfered hull topsides increases power to the jib.
These pins allow the Vortex’s wings to pivot upwards, reducing the space required for storage.
Air intake to cool V-Pilot when the competition heats up.
With the sailing of a Vortex pod racer there is no hiking, sliding around on tramps or ducking under booms. To fly and sail the Vortex pod racer, the pilot sits inside a cockpit. The V-Pilot flies the Vortex pod racer like a plane, controlling the trim and heel (bank) with a joystick, and using foot pedals to steer.
The Vortex pod racer’s innovatively simple control system allows the V-Pilot three-dimensional freedom while flying approximately one metre above the water at speeds of 30 knots.
Choose from a range of items to enhance your Vortex pod racer experience, from transport trolleys to essential spare parts, as well as smart apparel to complete your V-Pilot look.
