The benchmark in durability, stability and responsiveness.
An all new redesigned and balanced bridle with no pulleys gives a lighter feeling faster turning and more responsive kite, allowing for a wider range of users and also control for jumping.
The most versatile kite in the industry, allows for use in the widest range of conditions and variety of riding styles.
UP IN THE AIR
The 5 strut stable platform allows for stability in higher winds, and the wide arc allows for increased glide.
The unique profile of the canopy allows for effortless upwind performance.
IT'S IN THE SWEEP
More sweep allows for not only increased range, but also easy relaunch, especially in lighter winds.
The perfect fusion of materials. A combination of High Tenacity Dacron (HTD) & HTD Lite blends together giving the kite the support it needs, but with increased response.
HIGH TENACITY DACRON
Specifically designed for inflated kite structures. The construction of this material is very warp oriented using ultra high tenacity yarns with an increased thread count to combat elongation under high inflation pressures. Lower elongation makes for a more accurate kite/wing with a more efficient and accurate airfoil in flight.
The next evolutionary jump in inflatable structures is HTD Lite. We took the superior benefits of the proven HTD material to which have superior elongation control and combined it with a superior reflex bias recovery and lighter weight construction to elevate the response characteristics and range of the kite.
