TECH FEATURES

Quality and technology means everything to us. We put all our efforts into our products and solid manufacturing to make them long lasting, but still lightweight and performance oriented. Finding this balance is a constant challenge, but makes a huge difference in the end product. GA products come to you guaranteed to deliver the best performance available.

DACRON

Impregnated (waterproofed) and polyurethane coated high-density Polyester Dacron leads to maximum dimension stability and minimum water absorption, which helps our kites perform consistently in the most radical conditions over a long period.

TRIPLE RIPSTOP CANOPY

Our extremely strong Triple Ripstop Canopy enhances our kites’ tear strength and provides less water absorption and increased dimension stability together with the updated coating. This leads to the perfect mix of stability and lightness, which results in great flying characteristics.

KEVLAR PROTECTION

Strong Durability Protectors made of tough and super light Kevlar secure your kite from damages caused by abrasion at the most vulnerable sections. These protectors maximize your kite’s lifespan and allow you to rely on your gear at all times.

SPEEDPUMP

Double Cross Section Connectors allow you to quickly and comfortably inflate your kite through one valve only. The uncomplicated, light and resilient construction of the connectors provides quick inflation, easy handling and safety one the water.

VALVE

Easy to use and quick inflation thanks to the GA Quick Inflation Valve that can be linked directly to the bayonet connector of the pump and therefore provides maximum airflow. A tough and light construction enables quick and easy inflation over a long lifespan.
