•Super thin LE and 3 struts for quick, direct turning
•Amazing low-end performance
Kite Size: 17
The diameter of the leading edge is smaller than on an ordinary 12m kite. This creates extremely low drag and boosted torsional dynamics to produce a kite that cuts through the air at break-neck speeds without the usual sluggish feel of a bigger kite.
In mid and low AR kites, a three strut design allows steering forces to affect a larger portion of the canopy, re-sulting in quick response and faster turns.
TURNING AXIS - MID PIVOT TURN
The central turning axis allows medium pivot turns and allows the release of power as needed. This is one of the key characteristics that make it both a great all-around kite as well as ideal for wave riding.
The profile’s shape from the leading to the trailing edge changes as you move from the center out towards the tips. This optimizes performance for the different stages flight.
STEEP PROFILE SHAPE
The new profile shape utilizes the power of the kite more efficiently for better pops and jumps. This also makes the jumping pattern more vertical, as opposed to horizontal, giving you more vertical power and less horizontal drag.
The aggressive profile shape forces the tips of the kite out of the water and to the edge of the window, so there is virtually no work to be done by the rider to get the kite back up in the air.
