After being market leader with the GXR in 2003 Gaastra returns to building a true C-Kite after more than a decade. Uncompromising world class Wakestyle is what the Pact is designed for!
Three times European Champion Mario Rodwald put up three maxims for this kite: perfectly predictable slack, massive but controllable pop and a precise bar feedback.
After 18 month of testing the 2017 Pact will be the first one available to the public. The true C-Kite construction is equipped with five struts and fifth line to hold the aggressive profile in shape.
Explosive horizontal kiteloops can be landed safely as the Pact quickly recovers to 12 o´clock. Additionally we designed an extra small 5th line Wakestyle Bar! Despite the Wakestyle setup we added a freestyle setting which is provides perfect big air abilities and much depower. Use the Pact on the slow and Wakestyle pig tail for maximum control when unhooking!
