  • Flysurfer’s first LEI Kite: the Cronix

    Flysurfer Cronix KitesWhen we heard that Flysurfer was releasing the Cronix - their first LEI (leading edge inflatable) kite, we braced ourselves for epic goodness.  Flysurfer has been dedicated to innovation and phenomenal quality for the last 10 years. German engineering and an intense passion for kiting means this company’s first step into LEI kites is destined to be a good one.

    Some folks are leery of a company’s first stab at a product – we are too. But don’t be timid of Flysurfer’s move into the LEI arena.  It’s not their first rodeo.  Flysurfer’s X-GLOO division has years of experience in building and designing inflatable constructions.

    These folks are no clowns; they take the bull by the horns. Each individual line and each small piece of cloth in the canopy is thoroughly tested. They replaced pulleys on the front lines with maintenance-free, durable low-friction rings, and their Free Flow Valve makes pumping easy.

    The Cronix has an Adaptive Airfoil System which generates a considerable increase in low end power. When you power up, the trailing edge bridle gives you more lift through the curvature of the kite profile and it only takes a few seconds to adjust it to your riding style.

    The Cronix has a huge wind range and has an ultimately-fast and sporty flight feel. It’s a super-smooth and uncomplicated kite to fly. In the words of the company, “Relaunching is easy for novices even in the lightest winds, cruisers will immediately feel at home with the Cronix and wake & freestylers have the ultimate drug at their disposal.”
