SKU 18100

AGGRESSIVE WAKESTYLE FREESTYLE, MEGA-LOOP MACHINE

Sizes: 7m, 9m, 11m, 13m

The Fuel’s Traditional-C profile and wide, squared-off wingtips deliver powerful performance, the best (and backstall-free) unhooked handling of any shape in the industry and gut-checking loops that travel deep through the window. Relaunching is made surprisingly easy by refined leading edge and wingtip geometry. Although tuned for freestyle-centric riding, the Fuel has respectable crossover performance. The Fuel was the foundation from which countless other kites were designed, and over the years it has been the catalyst that launched many of the world’s best riders into their careers.

  • The original Megaloop master
