ADAPTIVE TIP

These connectors prevent one cause of kite accidents by ensuring that front lines cannot be attached to the back of the kite and back lines cannot be attached to the front.

Since 2012, Rebel, Evo, Neo and Fuse will feature the new “Adaptive Tip”. In recent years, there has been a trend leaning towards more reactive kites with even lighter sheeting forces than in the past. Such kites are really comfortable, lively for wave riding and offer more forgiving kite loops because they pivot around the wingtip. However, comparison tests have shown that our team riders and testers actually prefer kites with a harder bar feel because they offer better feedback, precise steering and more dynamic turning, which in turn creates more power.
The new “Adaptive Tip” allows users to easily change the sheeting force and turning performance through a simple back pigtail adjustment, allowing you to customize your kite to your desired style and feel.

TE force control

NORTH
4 TO 5TH LINE

The Trailing Edge Force Control describes the smooth power distribution between the different materials of the kite, forcing the tensions in the
right directions.
Compared to 2013 the waves are higher and wider to eliminate stress points between the Dacron Trailing Edge and the D2 Canopy Material. This change in construction reduces flattering marks and ensures that the material is not wearing out.

Shows the ability if a kite can be transformed from a 4 line kite into a 5th line kite.
