The 45 lb wing is the perfect size for doubles; the donut shape provides all-around lift
Light Monkey wings are 100% manufactured in the USA using the highest-quality materials available, and the final assembly takes place in our facility in Lake City, Florida
The outer bag is 1680 denier ballistic nylon, chosen for its tear strength and abrasion resistance.
The bladder is 15 mil virgin medical-grade polyether urethane. Polyether (as opposed to polyester) is better suited for water-exposed applications. Its stretch prevents point loads on the welds and is the best fit with our denier ballistic nylon outer bag; this makes for a much quieter wing than nylon-laminated bladders.
The zipper is a 10 mm Vislon non-corrosive zipper with locking slider. This is a standard in zippers for marine applications; you will find the same one on boat tops, sail covers, etc.
The wing includes a 13" crush-proof hose, two 2" EDM bands for hose routing, and a standard K-style power inflation valve. The inflation hose is located in the middle of the wing, so it doesn't interfere with hose routing on either the left or right post on a set of doubles.
The Light Monkey 45 lb wing has a true 45 lbs of lift. The cutout for the back plate is the same size and shape as our backplate, preventing gas from getting trapped between the backplate and wing.
