Flysurfer Speed4 Lotus Features
The Speed4 Lotus reduces the minimum wind requirements considerably. Especially in combination with high-performance kite race boards and hydrofoils this advantages is very noticeable.
The optimized and smoother profiles of the top and bottom sails as well as the reduced line drag effect, have a noticeable effect on the total performance of the wing. Thanks to these new technologies, a significant increase in performance has been achieved on the Speed4 Lotus.
Thanks to our new Lotus cloth water and dirt is repelled from the kite in an unprecedented fashion. The air tightness of this new cloth is second to none. The fabric is very sleek and makes for an extremely smooth top and bottom sail. The Lotus cloth material is 25 percent lighter than our popular deluxe cloth, this advantage is clearly noticeable: earlier flying, tighter turning and more stability, just to name a few.
Because of the Lotus cloth, packing size is again significantly reduced, so your kite luggage will become even more compact.
The Speed4 Lotus sizing is divided in constant 3m² steps, which makes building your kite quiver even easier.
Thanks to new Dyneema core fibers, we could reduce the diameter of the new high-performance lines significantly, creating less drag, while retaining the same breaking loads of the lines.
The Speed4 Lotus Infinity 2.0 Control Bar uses the 1m long leader lines of the CRONIX. This allows the control bar to be used on both kites. It is only necessary to ensure that the stopper knot is set to the longest FLS position of the kite which is used.
By default, the Speed4 Lotus is equipped with a frontline safety (FLS). For fans and supporters of the fifth line safety system, we have developed a FDS upgrade-kit, which can be ordered in our online-shop or at a Flysurfer dealer near you.
The product-life and the value sustainability of our products is very important to us. The Lotus cloth has superb durability values despite its lightness, offering extreme performance even after many kite sessions.
The Speed4 Lotus package is completed with our proven Infinity 2.0 Control Bar which has been impressing riders since its introduction to the market. Key features include our safe & dependable quick release and super smooth line untwisting function even after endless rotations.
Flysurfer Speed4 Lotus Material
At Flysurfer we have always set high standards on quality and durability. With the Speed4 Lotus we bring this philosophy to the next level. The highlight is use of a completely new type of cloth material with a so-called lotus effect, an industry first in kiteboarding. This material is not only extremely airtight and has excellent water- and stain-resistance, it is so smooth that we can not even print on the kite. The Lotus cloth is a staggering 25 percent lighter than our already very light deluxe cloth! This weight reduction means: the kite is flying even earlier, can be packed-up smaller, is easier than ever before to get out of the water and the cloth remains airtight even after countless hours of flight time – maintaining the same performance as the day you bought it.. For the Speed4 Lotus we are also introducing thinner, low-resistance flying lines. The new lines are even stiffer but much thinner, while retaining the same breaking loads as before. The Speed4 Lotus will use the Frontline Safety as the default safety system, however a 5th line safety (FDS) will be offered as an optional accessory. To round the complete package off, the Speed4 Lotus will be offered with the 6 month Free Repair Warrantee as well!

It has been a long wait for the first official sign that a new Flysurfer Speed 4 Kite is coming and now it is finally here. We are pleased and proud to present to you the next step or rather, jump, in Flysurfer development: the Flysurfer Speed 4 Kite â€“ in sizes 8.0 and 10.0mÂ²! First things first: The 2013 Flysurfer Speed 4 Kite in 8.0 and 10.0mÂ² are unbelievably versatile. Despite the enormous performance potential, the Speed4 is still suitable for beginners in the lower wind ranges but still a true air-time machine in the upper wind range.
The demand for other (bigger) sizes of the Flysurfer Speed 4 Kite is naturally justifiable. Still, it is not so simple to top an extraordinary product like the Speed3. So we still need some time and until then the Speed3 Colored Edition (CE) from 12.0mÂ² upwards remain within the Speed series. However, we are certain that 2013 will be the release year for the additional Flysurfer Speed 4 Kite sizes (12.0/15.0/18.0/21.0mÂ²).
Flysurfer Speed 4 Kite Highlights
Without exaggeration: The Flysurfer Speed 4 Kite is the best performing kite that we have ever built. Whether in low end, turning speed, relaunch, jumping characteristics or depowerâ€¦ Almost everywhere we have been able to set new limits. Yet itâ€™s performance is more accessible than ever â€“ for every rider. It starts when you pull up the Speed4: The kite inflates incredibly fast and provides security from the first moment onwards. Whether fully powered up or fully depowered, a Speed4 stays stable in the sky. And thanks to the balanced handling not only your jumps are much easier, but also their landings.
There is so much that cannot be put into words, but instead has to be experienced. The 2013 Flysurfer Speed 4 Kites flying feeling is one of those things. More direct and faster turning performance, a glide ratio that you only experience with Speeds, the now extremely short depower throw, the lift, the controlâ€¦We needed six months just for the fine-tuning the Speed4 in order to reach this result: It just feels plain great to fly a Speed4.
Our vision is not only to improve our kites, but to further shape the sport of kiting. What has remained is a simple and effective system. Lowest possible weight, smallest pack dimensions, quickest setup and stow-away and enormous durability â€¦ The 2013 Flysurfer Speed 4 Kite is more effective, lighter and more compact than anything else we have ever built. We were even able to achieve a bridle that is almost one-third lighter and remove an entire bridle row. This not only makes kiting easier, but results in even better performance.
The Flysurfer Speed 4 Kite is a completely new development, based on a concept: A defined flex performance of the kite-profile. We achieved this with a new canopy construction and an extremely simplified bridle. Depowered, a reflexed trailing edge is formed with especially low lift and high stability. By pulling the bar down, the profiles bends and an enormous lift increase is created. This technology makes it possible to use a lighter construction with less drag, as well as creating highly effective depower and high stability while simultaneously maintaining short bar travel. The new construction is supplemented by a reinforcement of the leading edge for maximum flight stability in gusting winds and yet again-improved aerodynamics. The result is a kite that not only brings all the advantages of the Speed3 to the next level, but also steps up itâ€™s freestyle performance.
Flysurfer Speed 4 Kite Technical Review
Next to established technologies and features of the past like Little Connection Lines, Automatic Water/Dirt Drainage System, Triple Depower, etc. â€“ we introduce the following technical features.
Rigid Foil Technology by Gin - Reinforcement of the front leading edge profile for increased performance and stability.
Smart Direct Airfoil - New flex-profile from extensive simulations for a shorter and more effective depower and quicker turning.
Minimized bridle - Just three main levels (A,B & Z) and new connection points have created a much simpler line system, which is lighter and has less drag.
Simplified mixer - Just one pulley per side makes for easiest trim tuning for everyone.

The L.E.I. by Flysurfer
Over the last ten years, Flysurfer made a name for itself as an innovator for the bridled ram-air kite system (foilkite) and has become a force to be reckoned with – especially in the niche markets. The addition of a leading edge inflatable kite to our product portfolio is probably a surprise to some, but the thought process behind it is rather simple: We want to push boundaries and evolve the best out of all systems! It has been almost two years since we made the decision to develop kites open to any system and newly position our brand. Now we present to you the first result of this decision: The Flysurfer Cronix.
With the Cronix, we are once again breaking new ground. The Adaptive Airfoil System generates a considerable increase in low end power. The trailing edge bridle creates more lift through the curvature of the kite profile when powering up, simultaneously helping relaunch, whether by reverse start or by pulling a steering line. The effectiveness of the trailing edge bridle can be adjusted within seconds on the kite, just like the bar forces – so that every rider has the right kite to match his/her preferences.
Fast kiteloops, breathtaking freestyle tricks, hard cut-backs off the lip, sporty flight feeling and an enormous wind range…It is crystal clear: The adjustment features of the Cronix have enabled us to create a true allrounder, however it is not just a trusty companion for every kind of kitesurfing. The Cronix is a pleasantly smooth and uncomplicated kite to fly, with a lot of on-demand potential. 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 with the Cronix. Last but not least – although the kite can hold its own in the waves with purebred wave kites, this does not mean that jumps have to take a back seat – the Cronix is a true allrounder.
Thanks to our X-GLOO division, we have gained years of experience in building and designing inflatable constructions. We put this experience to good use in the Cronix, likewise the past six months were pure testing and fine-tuning. With Flysurfer, you can be sure that only thoroughly tested materials make it into our end products – from each individual line to each small piece of cloth in the canopy. We have replaced pulleys on the front lines with maintenance-free, durable low-friction-rings. We put a lot of effort into the development of our Free Flow Valve, which means that pumping now requires much less effort than ever before – and we were even able to successfully optimize the pump!
The design and development goals for the PSYCHO4 were crystal clear from the very beginning. The pressure was high, but the initial successes have already proven that we've introduced another winner to the market!
The PSYCHO4 follows in the footsteps of its predecessor and impresses as a radical freestyle kite with big safety reserves. The enhanced agility of the kite in combination with the direct feedback enables superior control - learning new tricks has just gotten easier!
The total development of the PSYCHO4 took almost two years to complete and also brings a completely new innovation in kite design. The PSYCHO4 with its revolutionary „Triple Depower“-Technology combines 3 characteristics to maximize the depower effect:
The angle of attack changes
The projected size of the kite changes
The airfoil camber changes
The PSYCHO4 impresses by combining these 3 characteristics, resulting in an extremely wide „sweet-spot” where the kite creates its optimum performance. A tube kite, by comparison, only uses the change in angle of attack in order to achieve it's depower effect.
The range of use has significantly increased from its predecessor, worth mentioning is that through the „Triple Depower“-Technology it was possible to keep the kite direct and fast turning when depowered. Already leading us to another key design point and the next milestone in the PSYCHO4 design – turning speed and radius.
The PSYCHO4 is by far the narrowest and fastest turning kite that we have built to date! This kite is predestined for radical Free- and Wakestyle. The PSYCHO4 can master any kind of kiteloop with ease. The rider sets the extremity and limits. Unhooked performance has also been improved, so load it up for extreme pop!
Our kites are designed to fulfill the „wish-list“ of our customers. Therefore, the PSYCHO4 has an extra dose of versatility. The option to individually adjust the steering forces is already well-known among Flysurfer users. New however, is the „ DEPOWER PERFORMANCE ENHANCER “ which makes it possible to alter the characteristics of the way the PSYCHO4 depowers to your own preference.
The Depower profile can be changed directly by opening and/or closing the middle air intake valve (in 3 settings).
Open Valve: The profile is clean and accelerates more by depowering. The forward pull remains a bit higher. This setting is especially recommended for maximum performance and light wind conditions.
Closed Valve: The depower effect feels more direct, because the depowered profile is more concave at the leading edge and loses power instantly. The acceleration of the kite is reduced for the benefit of a more direct and increased depower. This setting is especially recommended for learning new tricks and for kiting in waves.
The PSYCHO4 is very easy to control, thanks to its enormous depower and very agile flight characteristics. This is a kite that wants to be worked. If you're looking for a kite for cruising or old school riding, better stick to our SPEED2. The PSYCHO4 impresses with radical lift and big airs when steering the kite back for a jump. The high flying and turning speed demands a sensitive hand to position the kite when landing. The PSYCHO4 is a kite for experienced riders who feel at home in the land of Free- and Wakestyle (or want to).
For this reason, the PSYCHO4 is only available up to 15m². The SPEED2 is unbeatable in the light wind segment and in reverse, in super high-wind conditions, we recommend the PULSE2 6m to intermediate riders, which has a bit more comfort and stability in these conditions.
In order to get the best out of the PSYCHO4, it comes standard with the completely new developed INFINITY-BAR to offer you the safest and best possible control bar out there.
The PSYCHO4 naturally comes with our 6 months Free-Repair Guarantee, as you would expect from FLYSURFER,
with regards to durability, the PSYCHO4 also outperforms its predecessor.
Other features at a glance:
* Shortened, colored and covered bridle lines for even easier handling and almost no tangles

* Trimming the kite has become super simple thanks to the new shorter mixer-setup
