Cruze, the big boys in our kite range, are the dedicated light wind kites, coming in only 15 and 17M sizes. Despite the larger size, the Cruze has only five struts. On the one hand, this makes it very light weight for excellent performance in lower winds.

Design details

Lightwind

Sizes: 15m, 17m

On the other hand, the five strut construction makes the Cruze shape very solid and ensures easy relaunch in light wind and great stability in gusts. The Cruze is also a great alternative for heavier riders. Due to its shape, the kite moves fast in the air and has great upwind performance. The Cruze has a direct feel, does not backstall, and delivers even distribution of power throughout the kite. It comes with 24m flying lines plus 3m and 6m extension flying lines to be added on in ultra light wind conditions. The 6m extension lines make a real difference in those super light sea breezes.

As with all CrazyFly products, the Cruze demonstrates the highest standards of quality both in materials and manufacture. It’s the perfect combination of great value, high quality and performance at a fantastic price.

Tech specs

FLAT DELTA SHAPE
Originally designed by CrazyFly for top performance user friendly kites with automatic relaunch, wide wind range and comfortable flight. Flat Delta includes advantages of the traditional Delta shape, but Flat Delta offers more speed due to higher aspect ratio.

5 STRUTS DESIGN
Very solid shape of large size kites, yet light enough for light wind conditions. The five strut design also ensures super easy relaunch even in light wind.

4 LINES SYSTEM
Simplicity with all necessities. Instant control and easy relaunch even with four lines due to the shape of the kite. Much easier set up on the beach, less tangles, and less problems in the water in emergency situations.

SLE
Supported leading edge – is the usage of more line connections (bridle system) to support the leading edge, evenly spread power, increase flight stability and ease the relaunch. The SLE system keeps the kite in its designated shape when powered and during maneuvers.

ULTRA LIGHT CONSTRUCTION
On a kite designed for light wind conditions, every gram of weight on the kite matters. However, the light wind kite has to have a solid frame to be able to relaunch, so there is a limit with stripping down weight. Our designers are right at the point where the kite is light, yet solid. They optimized the use of Dacron and reinforcements on the kite to create the lightest possible structure without sacrificing vital functions of the kite.

SICK BAR
CrazyFly Sick bar is the first and only bar made 100% in Europe from only European materials and components. Our Sick bar has been certified according to the AFNOR NF S52-503 international safety norm. The bar itself is a full carbon monococuqe tube with solid center for extremely light weight and lasting durability. It features a Sick click push away safety system, which can be quickly triggered as well as assembled.

ONE PUMP SYSTEM
We have been hard at work to develop our own bulletproof one pump valves and the results speak for itself. The valves are made from the highest quality material available and are manufactured in Europe. These valves are a synonym to long lasting durability. With the new one pump valves the pressure is evenly distributed throughout the kite. They also allow for quicker and easier inflation and deflation.

TEIJIN TECHNOFORCE
The most technologically advanced ripstop material for a kite canopy. This high density polyester yarn provides for ultra light weight, high tearing strength and long lasting durability.

TURBO INFLATE DEFLATE
This year, we introduced a brand new Turbo inflate/deflate valve. Inflation and deflation of the kite are made through the same valve. The kite is fully inflated and deflated in seconds. The set ups and pack downs on the beach are shorter, allowing for longer and much more enjoyable kite sessions.

BAT TRAILING EDGE
The Bat shape of the trailing edge minimizes flutter and stretches the kite canopy nicely all the way. Double Layer of Marcloth on the trailing edge ensures long life of the kite.

SPEED PROFILE STRUTS
Learning from the airplane and wing design industry we came up with a special speed profile of the struts. This profile shape increases the speed of the kite rapidly. Compared to a traditional strut profile, the Speed Profile Strut has less drag and no turbulence.

SQUARED WING TIPS
Squared wingtips provide for a more direct feel of the kite and more power in the kite. This shape feature also increases the stability of the kite in strong winds.

EASY RELAUNCH
Just pull on one front line and the kite pops right back in the air. Every rider trying to learn new tricks will appreciate the simple and quick relaunch of the kite.

LIGHT BAR PRESSURE
Perfect for all riders. Easy control and comfort results in longer hours of riding. However, the bar pressure can be adjusted according to the rider’s needs on the wingtip of the kite. Higher bar pressure setting results in a more direct response of the kite and vice versa.

SWIM PROOF O-RINGS SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT ANODIZED ALLOY
Say goodbye to pulleys. With the new O-rings, the steering is much more responsive and the kite feels much more direct. The O-rings are more durable than pulleys and will not malfunction with sand, as some pulleys eventually do. The O-rings are swim-proof, as one line runs around the ring while the other one runs through the ring. So, even in a very rare case of the O-ring breaking, the kite is still fully capable of flying. It is our signature to bring out only the highest quality products. The O-rings are made in Italy, by Antal ®, a famous sailing brand.

LOW PROFILE WING TIPS
This shape feature of the wing tips gives the kite lower air resistance and enables the kite to fly faster. The low profile wing tips cut through air with minimum resistance and the rider has more control over the kite.

QUICK TURNING RESPONSE
Speedy profile and light weight of the kite enables the kite to cut through air faster. Special bridle and lines set up provide instant response of the kite to rider’s inputs. It feels like there is not distance between the rider and the kite.

EXTENSION LINES
The Cruze kite comes with standard 24m flying lines and 3m and 6m extension lines, which can be added onto the flying lines in ultra light wind conditions. The 6m extension lines make a real difference in those super light sea breezes.

GERMAN QUALITY LOW STRETCH LINES
All CrazyFly lines are top quality low stretch lines made in Germany. Unlike others, when a CrazyFly line is pulled, the kite reacts instantly. Traditional lines stretch when pulled and the reactions of the kite are slow and require more input from the rider. With CrazyFly lines, steering is direct and requires very light input from the rider. The kite is much easier to control.

PU BLADDERS
All CrazyFly bladders are made from high quality Polyurethane. This material has excellent stretch properties, is very resistant to high pressure and functions well in a wide range of temperatures. These properties also allow the Polyurethane to be welded together and it bonds exceptionally well. Polyurethane bladders create a strong foundation for the inflated body of the kite.

CNC CONTROLLED CUTTING AND SEWING
CNC controlled cutting and sewing ensures maximum precision of critical seams on all CrazyFly kites. This technology eliminates human error and enables perfection to be repeated on every seam. CNC controlled cutting also reduces waste from offcut material.

BULLETPROOF LEADING EDGE SEAM
Leading edge is the most abused area of the kite, so we made sure our leading edge closing seam is bulletproof. Double stitching and abrasion resistant reinforcement tape placed over the top ensure long lasting durability of the leading edge seam.

BACK LINES SET UP
There are three back line settings on the wingtip of the kite. These allow the rider to tune the kite to his or her preferences. The fast back line set up provides the quickest turning of the kite and the lightest bar pressure. On the medium setting the kite still turns relatively quickly and there is more load on the bar. On the slow setting the kite turns noticeably slower and the bar pressure is high.

SEGMENTED ARC LEADING EDGE
The Segmented Arc Leading Edge is a flawless continuous arc composed of multiple segments. The leading edge panels are cut and sewn to create an arc instead of angled segments. The arc ensures homogeneous stress on the seams and the load is evenly distributed along the leading edge. On the other hand, a segmented leading edge has angled panels sewn together which creates stress points and a points of weakness of the kite. The Segmented Arc Leading Edge provides better flight characteristics and results in a much more durable kite.

MARCLOTH FUSION LINING
Our engineers use Marcloth to strengthen all areas where the heavy duty frame materials meet the lightweight canopy. Marcloth is a mid-weight high strength fabric, ideal to create the ultimate synergy between the higher weight and lighter weight fabrics. Of course, this increases the durability of the kite.

KEVLAR PROTECTORS
Heavy duty Kevlar fabric patches protect the kite against damage in the most abused areas. The Kevlar reinforcements are highly durable, extremely resistant to abrasion and very light. These properties make Kevlar the perfect material for kite protectors.

SILLY BILLY CONNECTORS
The Silly Billy connectors prevent accidentally connecting the wrong lines together. With the help of knots and loops on the connectors, it is impossible to set up the kite in a wrong way.
