Fliteboard Series 3 Ultra L

Fliteboard just Launched the World’s Lightest Performance eFoil for Aquatic Adrenaline Junkies

If you’ve been to the beach over the summer break, you’ve probably noticed more and more people zooming across the ocean on what can only be described as a stand-up hovercraft. This new crop of water warriors is largely thanks to Australian-based electric hydrofoil innovator, Fliteboard, whose aquatic vehicles have become a global sensation since making their debut in 2018. Today, the brand has released its new Series 3 collection, including the ULTRA L – the world’s lightest performance eFoil. Packed with a bunch of new technology, shapes and colours, their latest toy will have adrenaline junkies frothing to get amongst the waves.

Focusing on the top tier ULTRA L, this baby weighs in at a feather-light 22.5kg/49.6 lbs, with a lithium-ion battery weighing only 6.2kg/14 lbs. With the Flitecell Nano battery under the hood, you’ll be able to fly for up to 45 minutes, or even longer when riding waves, and can be fully charged in under an hour. In the pursuit of ultimate performance, Fliteboard has stripped the ULTRA L of unnecessary features such as footstraps and handles, and even handcrafted the battery box with carbon fibre to further lighten the load.

Now positioned closer to the mast, the location and weight of the battery in the board allow for increased maneuverability and minimal swing weight. The entire range of Flitecell batteries is made with phase change material for thermal management, and premium high-discharge and low-temperature cells, aiming to ensure a safe and reliable ride. Additionally, the new 80cm mast has been designed to take on bigger waves, deeper turns, and smooth riding over choppy waters.

In a major development for the eFoil industry, Fliteboard’s Series 3 features a revolutionary new propulsion system – Dual Drive and Flite Jet. The Flite Jet is the smallest and lowest drag eFoil jet in the world, designed for both simplicity and precision,  offering riders improved smoothness and safety. The Dual Drive system, the world’s first interchangeable propulsion system, allows riders to choose between propeller or jet power and seamlessly switch between the two. With no tools required, users can can now experience the best of both worlds in seconds. In addition to the Dual Drive, Series 3 also features two new Cruiser Jet wings, which are perfectly paired with the Flite Jet for a more simple, stable and efficient glide.

“Furthering the pursuit of the ultimate ride, Series 3 offers record-breaking developments with the world’s lightest performance eFoil, lightest ever lithium-ion eFoil battery and the world’s first interchangeable propulsion system,” said David Trewern, CEO, Founder and Product Architect. These advances will truly change the way we experience the water.”
