Dynamic edge response
Kite flies forward quickly when checking a rail edge, for unmatched freestyle progression.
Upright design ensures twist from the steering lines runs deeper into the canopy for powerful turns and fast, responsive steering.
LOW DRAG Spliced, pre-stretched bridle lines with less parasitic drag for greater aerodynamic performance. Our new manufacturing method to pre-load and measure the bridle lines before cutting improves accuracy and consistency. This combined with quality materials, results in reduced shrinkage, reduced elongation and improved longevity.
HYPERFLOW INFLATION SYSTEM
High volume single point inflation system with larger diameter hose for rapid inflation and deflation. Bayonet style main inflation valve compatible with most pumps. No adapter needed.
TECHNO FORCE | D2 RIPSTOP FABRIC BY TEIJIN
Premium high-density canopy material made in Japan, using high tenacity polyester yarn for lightness, high tearing strength and high endurance. Teijin Techno Force has the highest strength to weight ratio and longest durability in the industry.
DURALITE SEAM PROTECTION
Lightweight reinforcement to protect from chafing and abrasion along the struts to the leading edge. Thin foam padding is inserted underneath and forms a lightweight durable buffer to lift the kite slightly off rough surfaces, and protect the stitching along the struts and leading edge seams.
STEERING IMPULSE OPTION
Bar pressure / steering impulse wing tip tuning options let you fine tune the kite to your personal preference.
KEVLAR REINFORCED STRUT SYSTEM
For the most accurate and durable connection between the strut and the leading edge.
NO-PULLEY BRIDLES Simplified.
Less breakage. Removing the plastic pulleys from within the load-bearing part of the kite improves safety and your connection to the kite. The result is lower drag, more accuracy and a more direct feeling as the kite powers more evenly through the turn.
