through the use of machined adapters, Project Cedrus is compatible with various fuselages and wings
Project Cedrus is about a pound lighter than the Lift mast, and considerably stiffer and stronger. The monocoque design of the Lift wings and fuselage make for an incredibly lightweight setup, and I am excited to offer compatibility with their wings. They are also one of the few companies who makes it easy to purchase their wings separately. My personal setup is the new 150 surf, which allows dis-assembly for travel. The Lift adapter weighs 140 grams and does not change wing position relative to the mast.
Need a stiffer or longer mast for those big and beautiful MFC wings? This adapter provides a perfect fit to the mini tuttle-like interface of the MFC fuselage. The adapter adds approximately 10mm in length to the mast, and shifts the front wing forward only 8.5mm.
With the addition of the carbon mast to the Axis lineup, a change was made to the fuselage interface enabling compatibility with Project Cedrus. This is another super clean adapter, hiding completely inside the fuselage. With a massive wing lineup that has quickly gained traction among kite, surf, and SUP, Project Cedrus provides increased stiffness at less weight than Axis masts. The Axis adapter weighs only 100 grams, and shifts the front wing forward 15mm relative to the mast.
It was not feasible to match the bolt spacing of the Liquid Force fuselage given the unique architecture of Project Cedrus. But with this simple adapter which adds only 15mm in length and 100g to the mast, Project Cedrus becomes compatible with all Liquid Force fuselages.
Slingshot / RIDE ENGINE
Bolt this adapter to Project Cedrus, and you’re now compatible with the Slingshot Hoverglide / Ride Engine line of kite, wing, surf, SUP, and windsurf wings. While you won’t have the lightest setup available, you will certainly notice the 2-3 pounds saved and appreciate the increased stiffness. This adapter is designed to interface with the front wing, known as position A. It adds about a centimeter to the mast length and 100g in weight.
Slingshot B/C Position
Designed specifically for windsurfers, this adapter offers more laminar flow when it’s necessary to connect to the B or C positions on the slingshot fuselage. Due to the longer chord length of Project Cedrus, this adapter will not fit in position A.
Moses / SS Ghost Whisperer
Need a stronger mast for your huge boosts? Want a shorter option for your favorite wings? This adapter was designed, machined, and tested by Jim Stringfellow. It allows Project Cedrus to cleanly mount the Moses aluminum fuselage, the same supplied as OEM to Slingshot. The adapter adds approximately 1cm in length to the mast, at a weight penalty of only 115g.
Love the ride of your canard configuration but want a lighter and stiffer mast? This adapter bolts to Project Cedrus and offers compatibility with the Zeeko Spitfire fuselage. It adds 10mm in mast length and forward shift, at only 75g.
An economical and well-loved setup, the Cabrinha foil is a bit overweight. This adapter makes Project Cedrus compatible with their fuselage, reducing the weight of your foil to make it easier for learning, traveling, and maneuvering out of the water. According to a recent customer, “The whole setup feels totally more “alive” and responsive with Cedrus over the CabAlum mast.”
A common complaint among Moses 633 enthusiasts is the amount of front foot pressure required to keep the high lift of the big wing under control. On a pocket board, riders can quickly run out of room. Designed by Jim Stringfellow, this fuselage mounts directly to Project Cedrus and moves the center of pressure of the Moses 633 wings back to a more comfortable and stable location.
the full package
At 1.5lbs, the machined aluminum fuselage has lower weight and drag than extruded models. 25″ in length, it bolts directly to Project Cedrus and is compatible with all Liquid Force and 1st generation CloudIX wings. This fuselage offers a great platform for fabricating your own wings, or contact Jim for a Project Cedrus-specific version of his popular Stringy Wings. If you already have a set of Stringy wings with different hole paterns, this fuselage can be be modified to accommodate your current setup.
