The 5th generation Trigger went through a bold reconstruction of the profile shape, which positions the kite to sit further in the edge of the window, causing more vertical pop, significant increase in hangtime and much better upwind performance. Still maintaining its reputation of ridiculously quick turning speed and powerful delivery gives the proper Blade-edge to riders who don’t fear going all out on the water. Don’t expect a park and ride kite. The Trigger would be insulted if used in such ways. The high performance characteristics let you position this kite exactly where and when you want it.
• Inspiringly fast turning
• Massive hangtime
• Superior wind range
• Additional Wave performance feature
Kite sizes: 5 / 7 / 9 / 10 / 12 / 14
STEEP PROFILE SHAPE
If you’re looking for an explosive pop and jaw-dropping hangtime, the all-new steep profile and deep contour will be an added bonus to your quiver. The unique design makes your jump more vertical and elevated, preventing loss of power in the horizontal direction.
A 3-strut design is perfect for mid and low AR kites, because the force you apply during steering influences a larger portion of the canopy, resulting in quick reaction time and a faster turning kite.
TURNING AXIS -MID PIVOT TURN
The turning axis of the Trigger is generated along the LE, between the wingtip and the center strut. This design feature is crucial to getting a good balance between turning speed and power delivery. This is one of the Trigger’s key characteristics that make it both a great all around kite as well as ideal for wave riding.
WAVE PERFORMANCE SETTING
Those of you looking for the ultimate tweak to take your wave riding and big air jumping to the next level , the Advanced Wave setting is your ideal choice. This conversion can be easily done by undoing one knot on the bridle system. This setting increases the depower and positions the kite even further forward in the window; giving you a more tolerant ride well-suited to carving up waves, better drift characteristics and superior airborne qualities.
An aggressive profile shape forces the tips of the kite out of the water and to the edge of the window. This means you have virtually no work whatsoever in launching the kite back into the air.
The profile’s shape from the leading to the trailing edge changes as you move from the center out towards the tips. This rider-conscious design provides the optimal performance characteristics for the different stages of flight
