Kite Feature Overview 2015


  • – Highly reinforced TE: An additional Kevlar / aramid line in the Trailing Edge (TE) keeps the TE length the same. As such we make      sure the performance of a kite after hundreds hours of use is the same as a new kite.
  • – A double spinnaker layer between the canopy and the Dacron TE to eliminate any drag and fluttering. This panel has a highly optimized shape to stop harmonic frequency in this area.
  • – Preloaded tip construction: the Leading Edge (LE) around the tip is slightly “spring loaded” and keeps the TE under tension, even in special aerodynamic situations. This prevents any flutter on the outside and a faster reaction on steering impulse on the inner side of turns.
  • – New “Strut LE joint” construction allows us to control the connection angle very accurately for best performance. In addition, this is a very strong and clean construction.
  • – New algorithm of calculating the logic-V bridles, due to new weighted balance calculations.
  • – New workmanship routine reduces wrinkles and makes an overall cleaner canopy which naturally upgrades the kites performance.
  • – Updated canopy and Dacron material for improved durability and stiffness.
