  1. Kite Line Blade Uni Control Bar 2nd Generation

    Blade Uni Control Bar 2nd Generation

    $449.00

    At the beginning of 2013 we were happy to have launched the Uni bar, which had been
    anticipated for quite a while. The Uni bar had been carefully designed and engineered for
    over 2 years, but the innovation did not end with its debut. Over the past year, we have been
    busy improving the quality and performance of the system, bringing  it to the next level.

    The 2nd generation Uni bar has many added benefits from its predecessor. Some of these
    improvements are in material, some in design and some are in new parts, but all of them
    are to ensure a comfortable, safe and long lasting bar. As you scroll down, you will see for
    yourself the added benefits of the next generation system. Enjoy

     

     With the help of experts in the field of kinesiology (the study of mechanical body behavior), we have given the Uni a supported diagonal cut on the outer half to promote comfortable, long-term riding. This tweak also allows for better leverage for increased turning speed. The inner half of the bar is still horizontal, which is perfect for freestyle riders who need horizontal leverage.
    • A unique kinetic profile design
    • Diagonal cut on outer half
    • Standard horizontal profile on inner half
     The Uni is designed to provide safety, dependability and worry-free riding. With that in mind the QR core is made from a strong nylon composite, similar to the material used to coat the shell. Smart engineering has provided line holes for easy replacement with any 6mm Spectra Lines.
    • Super-strength nylon core
    • Easily replaceable depower lines
     Having lines that are too thick may affect the kite's performance, while lines that are too thin and stretchy may do the same. Therefore the Uni is fitted with Austrian Teufelberger FL-14 and FL-10 series lines. The middle lines are fitted with the FL-14 model, which are slightly thicker but stretch 70% less than standard ones. The FL-10 is used for the outer lines, which lowers the overall weight and still maintains integrity.
    • Teufelberger FL series lines
     A large part of our design and testing processes focused on finding the perfect lightweight material, capable of contending with the extreme conditions associated with kiteboarding. Extensive research led to a solution found in airbag canisters. This special nylon formula has proven to work well in abrasive and prolonged ocean conditions. It increases the bar's rigidity without increasing its weight.
    • Special nylon coating
    • Rigid and strong, yet lightweight
    Custom fit construction keeps the entire chicken loop system rigid for easy rehook
     Specifically molded out of virtually indestructible TPE-X material, the chicken loop lock will never fail. It comes at a slightly offset angle as standard, so it's out of the way for unhooked riding but is easily fitted into the spreader bar for a freeride shredding session.
    • Indestructible TPE-X molded piece
    • Standard offset setting
    • Detachable

    • Special nylon coating

     The bar is fitted with a super-comfortable and strong grip pad. The embossing process provides a lightweight and durable outer layer. This has undoubtedly raised the standard in comfort and functionality.
    • Super comfortable
    • Durable
    • Non-slip, ribbed pattern
    Easily changeable bar length from 44cm to 52cm

    2013 Blade Prime Kite Designer Q & A

    What do you feel makes the Prime different from other freestyle kites?

    When we began developing the Prime 5 years ago, we wanted to make a very unique kite in terms of delivery. We set out to make a freestyle kite that lets riders push the limits, build progression and increase performance. The point wasn’t to make a mid-level or expert level freestyle kite, but one that will still give you a rush on your 10th, 20th or 50th session and beyond. As you get better, you want a kite that progresses with you and that is exactly the Prime’s protocol.

    What were the biggest challenges in designing the Prime?

    Making a C kite with only 4 lines while trying to get maximum performance, superior stability and ultra-responsiveness isn’t easy. We always work on the very narrow leading edge and it took us a long time to develop a very unique bridle configuration that we can use on this one-of-a-kind kite. The bridle offers just enough support to the leading edge to make sure that the shape stays intact, but the length is absolutely minimal so you still get the maximum bar directness and intuitive responsiveness you’re looking for in a kite.

    Ultra-Thin LE

    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.

    Kite Line 2013 Blade Fat Lady Kite
    Kite Line 2013 Blade Fat Lady Kite

    3 Struts

    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.

    Kite Line 2013 Blade Fat Lady Kite

    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.

    2013 Blade Fat Lady Kite Q & A

    What is your biggest accomplishment in the Fat Lady?

    Three years ago when we first set out to make a light wind kite, we were determined to uphold our reputation of producing fast-turning, dynamic kites. The biggest challenge presented by the Fat Lady was the combination of the kite’s dominating size and the light wind conditions it was going to perform in. After extensive testing in light wind conditions, we designed an especially narrow leading edge. This creates the lively, dynamic ride we were looking for, but it wasn’t easy. We went through extensive engineering and first-hand testing before we produced a light wind kite that delivered usable power, a pronounced pop and efficient upwind performance.

    What makes the Fat Lady different from most other light wind kites?

    Almost everybody who tests the Fat Lady for the first time is blown away by her quick turning abilities. This is definitely the thing that sets it apart from other light wind kites. This kite genuinely surprises a lot of people when they discover they can perform all their ordinary tricks on such a big kite and in relatively light conditions. We don’t claim we can reproduce the same liveliness as you’d find in a 10m kite in the bigger model, but the Fat Lady proves you can still have bucket-loads of fun with a 17m kite. 

    What special features did you use?

    It’s only when you get up close to the Fat Lady that you truly start to understand just how narrow the LE is. Compared to the Trigger, the LE is the same diameter as the 12m! As a result, there is a huge reduction in drag, creating a much smoother ride. The 3-strut design also isn’t common on a 17m kite and this contributes to the remarkable feeling of agility in the kite and its peerless qualities in performance.
