North Sonar AF Technology
MODULAR FOIL SYSTEM
Customize your ride with North's fully interchangeable foil components to explore multiple discipline and riding styles all with one set up. Start building your quiver here. Seamlessly compatible with any North fuselage, stabilizer, mast, or front wing.
SONAR AF72 OR AF85 MAST
The new refined aluminum mast profile section gives the optimal balance between light weight design and exceptional strength for every discipline.
The AF85 mast performs across all disciplines and offers you more ride height to clear waves or to heel over for tighter turns. It is also more forgiving in rougher conditions. The AF72 mast is ideal for shallower waters, and prone surf foiling.
GEOLOCK LOAD BEARING CONNECTION
Engineered for strength and stiffness, North's unique GeoLock tapered geometry locking system provides a more effective load-bearing connection between the Mast and Fuselage, locking them together, so they feel like one piece.
Screws engage the GeoLock while the load transfer now takes place over the full cross-section of the mast profile, allowing for a more efficient load distribution and longer-lasting connection.
NEW S270 CARBON STABILIZER WITH EASY BREACH RECOVERY
In perfect harmony with any Front Wing, North's new higher aspect, thinner profile carbon pre-preg rear Stabilizer provide control and riding comfort, allowing fast pivoting turns and easy surface breach-recovery.
The Stabilizer's positioning on top of the Fuselage allows for a clean, undisturbed approaching flow. Surface piercing of the Stabilizer is not a problem, as the Front Wing sits deeper in the water and is still fully submerged, giving you that extra time to react and adjust your ride height. Pair with the Stabilizer Shim Kit for even greater customization of your ride.
SONAR AF FOIL BOARD ADAPTER
Aluminum Board Adaptor for the AF55, AF72, and AF85 masts. FE-Analysis has allowed North to optimized the structure, increase the strength in the areas of highest stress concentration, and reduce unnecessary weight in lower stress areas.
Incorporates a strong geometry locking connection for better energy transfer and a more direct feel. (Not compatible with AK Mast Series)
INDUSTRY-STANDARD 165x90mm BOLT PATTERN
The Sonar Foil System is designed to work in harmony with North's unique DropBox fast-foil mounting system. The DropBox has a longer track for a wider adjustment range, allowing you to precision-tune the foil set up for your rider weight.
A measurement guide next to the track aids correct positioning. Your Sonar Foil can also be mounted to any foilboard with an industry-standard 165x90mm bolt pattern. Board and foil to board attachment screws are sold separately.
NEW C700mm FUSELAGE
Cruise control. North's longer, CNC-machined anodized aeronautical-grade aluminum Fuselage offers a smoother, more stable ride across every foil discipline.
It’s forgiving 700mm length improves stability when paired with any wing. Ideal for learning to foil, the longer fuselage delays the pitching moment, giving you more time to react. It's precisely CNC-machined and hydrodynamically-optimized shape offers minimum resistance and features GeoLock. Fits all Sonar Masts.
