The Mantis has become synonymous with its outstanding range and versatility. Not only does the wing perform amazingly in waves, on ocean downwinders, but it’s also proved itself to excel on the racecourse or on the lakes and flat water venues.
The Mantis Apex series takes the performance to a whole new level through the introduction of the Ultra HP frame material. Aside from a 22% weight saving in frame material, the big benefit comes from the ability to hold higher pressures, allowing us to reduce the LE diameter while maintaining stiffness. This leads to a leaner profile and a higher performing product.

The Mantis Apex utilizes a medium Dihedral design to deliver a precisely balanced power to stability ratio. This translates to precision handling and feedback from the wing.
Refined wingtip twist allows for wing to breathe while maintaining canopy tension.
Thanks to Ultra-HP the Mantis Apex has a lean profile for efficient upwind performance, wide speed range and an extremely responsive frame.
A highly rigid single strut for low weight and predictable depower.
A refined window layout, made from weather resistant TPU provides increased visibility when riding.
Through a combination of Ultra-HP material, refined profiles and Tip Twist, the Mantis Apex has incredible controllable and power in a wide range of wind conditions.
