The Elite S1 Hi-Wind is smooth, super smooth in fact. Especially deep downwind at maximum speed. The G10 construction ensures total control in extreme situations at the upper end of the wind range. But don’t be fooled into thinking G10 is not a viable, expert’s competition solution. This line is PWA-proven and a genuine racing option for harsh conditions. While the G10 build is forgiving, pick a model 2-4 cm. larger than the pre-preg construction version equivalent.
