TRITON FOILS T1 Monowing Review

The Triton T1 Monofoil is a unique kite specific foil that features a single front wing with no fuselage or stabilizer. The T1’s stealth fighter jet look is built with a light weight, carbon construction, while the fuselage is an aluminum composite. The test team was excited to finally try out this interesting foil design. The benefits of the more compact set up for travel and the ability of it offering added manoeuvrability and tighter carving ability is very appealing. Up on foil, the T1 takes a bit to get used to and might not be ideal for the less experienced kite foiler, but after getting the right foot pressure dialled, the T1 is an absolute blast to ride. In a straight line the T1 is not the fastest or the slowest kite foil wing, but it gets up to speed nicely and doesn’t get unruly when you push it hard. It glides nicely through the lulls and has fairly low stall speed once you’re up and moving. The T1 may not provide the super early lifting or smooth drive as some of the newest freeride foils but it has some very fun manoeuvrability features that set it apart. It’s amazing how tight and hard you can crank the turns and transitions compared to many of the slower and maybe boringly, stable kite foils. It also has a very loose feel from toe to heel edge and will appeal to any foiler that’s had enough of just mowing the lawn back and forth and wants something with a more exciting turning radius. Great for pulling into waves and carving transitions, the Triton foil is a great and compact set up for traveling.
