    Read more about the 2017 Crazyfly Elite

     

    The 2017 Crazyfly Elite is redefining the future of the ultimate kiteboard. Blending together the most advanced technologies and materials while focusing on the best possible performance, we created the 2017 Crazyfly Elite. It displays the sensuality of high performance and possesses the elegance of pure, uncompromising design. The 2017 Crazyfly Elite is a masterpiece of extreme light weight engineering and demonstrates the outstanding expertise of CrazyFly in all areas of carbon fiber technology. The 2017 Crazyfly Elite is more than a board, it is a status. To complement its superiority, the 2017 Crazyfly Elite board comes in a one of a kind custom tailored hard case. This unique boardbag has been designed to always keep the 2017 Crazyfly Elite board safe during travels and trips to the beach.

     

    The 2017 Crazyfly Elite package guarantees many pleasant surprises and unparalleled riding joy. Performance wise, the 2017 Crazyfly Elite was designed as a high end freeride board. As with every carbon board, the 2017 Crazyfly Elite has quite a lot of pop and dynamics, so the load ‘n’ pop will not disappoint. The 2017 Crazyfly Elite is very different when compared to a traditional full carbon board. Even though it is a full carbon board, it does not feel too stiff at all. Because the HMX-CF carbon is so strong, we were able to use only one layer on each side, and the board remains highly flexible, giving the 2017 Crazyfly Elite a very comfortable medium flex. Due to its extreme light weight, it is very simple to maneuver and thanks to the shape, it handles chop extremely well. Overall, the 2017 Crazyfly Elite beats just about any other board we have made so far.

     

    2017 Crazyfly Elite Features

     

    Unobtanium - The Highest Value, Best Fulfulling Purpose

    Unobtainium is a non-existing material of the highest value, which best fulfills its desired purpose, so we were not able to use it, but we managed to apply this concept while creating the Elite board. Our designers and engineers had an Unobtainium mindset, and every little detail on this board is made as if it was made from Unobtainium. Every piece was carefully picked and well thought through to best serve its purpose and complement one another in this extremely unique package.

     

     

    HMX-CF - Nano Technology Carbon Fibers

    HMX-CF carbon is the most advanced carbon fiber technology. The combination of Nano-technology, carbon nanotube reinforced resin and T1000G carbon fiber create the world’s highest tensile strength fiber. Supplied as a prepreg, this carbon always has the perfect ratio of resin spread evenly and creates the best possible molecular bonding. The cohesion between the fibers is improved and allows for incredible strength even at off-axis fiber directions. Expert utilization of the HMX-CF carbon results in an extremely lightweight board with uncompromised power transfer and dynamics. 

     

     

    Carbon Touch - Raw Natural Beauty of Carbon

    With over 15 years of experience with carbon, CrazyFly is stepping up with the most advanced carbon fiber technology in kiteboarding. The Elite board is not made with the conventional top sheet construction method. To radically reduce weight and showcase the raw natural beauty of Carbon, our engineers came up with the Carbon Touch technology. HMX-CF carbon utilizes Nano-technology, which incorporates a reinforced epoxy resin as well as T1000G carbon fiber. The bonding between the fibers is improved compared to traditional methods, making T1000G the world’s highest tensile strength fiber. This technology does not only make the Elite board Feather Lite and strong, it also enables the user to touch and feel the carbon fibers. 

     

     

    Feather Light - Extreme Light Weight Engineering

    The Elite is without a doubt the lightest production board in the world. In its mid-size, 136 x 41 cm, the board itself weighs an incredible 1 940 grams. Complete with accessories the Elite weighs only 2 860 grams, making it the lightest board in the industry. Our engineers have spent tremendous amount of time searching for options to strip down weight without compromising performance. With specially sourced ultra light wood cores, used exclusively in the Elite boards, and the most advanced carbon technology so far, we successfully created a Feather Lite masterpiece.

    The 2017 Cabrinha Contra Kite is a three strut light wind kite, designed to optimize low-end power while retaining the finesse that keeps this kite fun to fly. The 2017 Cabrinha Contra Kites high aspect ratio maximizes power production and makes generating power and speed a snap.

    2017 Cabrinha Contra Kite Technology

     

    Cabrinha’s exclusive line of high-quality woven fabrics has been designed specifically for kitesurfing. Unlike many of the generic sailcloths available in today’s kites, the Volae materials have been specially developed to our exact specifications. The development process has taken over 5 years to create this dedicated kite material, which delivers the lowest stretch and highest durability on the market.
       
    The Sprint Inflation System with Airlock is the most efficient and easy way to get your kite pumped up. The large one-way Airlock valve quickly feeds air into all of the struts from a single location. The Airlock connection to the Sprint pump now requires no special adapters. Once inflated, you can lock off each strut independently to keep your kite’s rigid frame, and isolate any accidental strut deflation from the rest of the kite. When the session is over, the entire kite will deflate in seconds thanks to the Airlock valve’s large dump feature.
       
    A dynamic arc allows the kite to have two distinct arc shapes. The kite takes on one shape while flying, and another shape while in resting mode on the water. The flying shape occurs as soon as the kite gets airborne and the front lines are under tension. The flying shape is the kite’s intended shape which is optimized for the intended usage. The arc shape is held in place by a simple set of bridling. The dynamic arc shape occurs when the kite is not in flight, such as when the kite is resting on the water in relaunch mode. The dynamic arc allows the kite to open its span and orient the wingtips in a position to facilitate a super quick relaunch.
       
    All Cabrinha kites are designed and built on a Skeletal Frame foundation. We start by placing the most durable, 160 gsm Dacron material into a framework that locks in the intended shape. We then create the canopy shape and profiles with a light weight yet highly durable 53 gsm polyester woven material. We build on the durability of the canopy material with a second layer of 53 gsm two-ply material over the high stress strut sections. Next, we layer into the perimeter a 75 gsm, double ripstop reinforcement material to combat the extreme loads that are placed on the trailing edge and wing tip areas of the kite. Finally, we complete the kite with details such as molded EVA chafe protectors, robust leading edge protectors, and triple row stitching at the high stress inter-segment seams near the center of the kite. We seal it all up with a woven nylon ribbon reinforcement on the leading edge closing seam.
       
    Power Control settings quickly adjust the power level of the kite. Each rear line “pig tail” connector has three power positions which you can connect to. The middle position is the factory recommended position. Create more power by connecting the knot closest to the kite or less power by connecting to the knot closest to the rider.
       
    The 1X is not a depower system, it is a full blown shut down system. The 1X relies on only one line to immediately shut down the power of the kite whether it be on land or water in all wind conditions.
       

    We offer multiple tuning options this season which completely change the way a kite flies. These options allow you to customize the feedback and bar pressure, adjust where the kite sits in the window, and balance the power/ de-power range of the kite.

    Cabrinha highly recommends testing the different settings for yourself to find out what feels the best to you.

    A = The lightest bar pressure and lightest steering initiation.
    B = Much more feedback, more bar pressure, shortened depower, and more steering impulse to know where the kite is.

       
    The layout starts in segmented sections in the design software, but, in-flight its natural shape is a smooth arc. In order to make the transition between segmented and curved, we doubled the aerodynamic control by cutting each canopy panel in half at the center section, providing the ultimate curvature control which is where 90% of the performance comes from. When a kite is clean and smooth it will be faster through the sky giving you a broader range of performance.

    2017 Slingshot Fuel Kite Product Details

     

     
    More info: We’ve brought back the classic four-line configuration for the 2017 Fuel, eliminating the optional Nitrous bridle system that was included with the 2016-16 Fuel and adding a leading edge attachment point for riders who prefer a fifth-line setup. Trailing edge tension is now controlled with the addition of Teijin T2 Polyester rip stop canopy material. This decreases trailing edge flutter while enhances durability. We reinforced the one-pump inflation valve’s connection to the bladder to help prevent blowouts caused by improper hose attachment/detachment. Finally, we added two Kevlar patches to prevent bridle rub on the trailing edges.
     
     
    Customize power, bar pressure, response and handling with multiple attachment points: The Fuel features multiple attachment points that allow riders to fine-tune the kite’s handling and performances based on their riding style and the conditions of a particular session. This tuning is done quickly and easily and makes a big impact on the kite’s overall performance; you can choose different settings for boosting big, for unhooked freestyle, for user-friendly depower or for riding waves, to name a few. 
     
     
    Bomber Slingshot construction: Have unrivaled confidence in your gear, and in your investment, with bombproof Slingshot construction: Slingshot coined the term Surf-Tough more than a decade ago, and today we take pride in our reputation for building the most durable kites on the market. Slingshot’s bombproof durability gives riders the trust and confidence they need to push themselves, and their gear, to new limits. As an investment, due to superior construction and durability, Slingshot kites hold up exceptionally well over time and have a high resale value. Slingshot designer Tony Logosz has defined quality kite design and innovation since day-one by. Most major construction techniques popular today started with Slingshot.
     
     
    Split Strut technology: Ride with confidence and control with a stronger, more stable and more ridged canopy. Created by Slingshot, SplitStrut technology has become the gold standard in kite design. SplitStrut integrates the kite’s canopy and struts into one firmly interconnected piece. This is a major design element in all of Slingshot’s kites, and it results in a stronger, more stable and far more durable canopy. SplitStrut enhances power under heavy load and creates efficiency and rigidity in the overall frame.
     
     
    Save time and energy with Slingshot’s ONE PUMP SPEED SYSTEM: Slingshot invented the one-pump concept years ago, and today the innovation can be found on almost every kite on the market. The One Pump Speed System makes inflating your kite quick and easy; simply attach your hose and pump your entire kite from one convenient valve. Deflating is just as easy. This might not seem like a big deal, but if you’ve ever had to inflate and deflate your leading edge and all your struts individually, you know how important it really is.

    Read more on what Cabrinha says about the 2017 Cabrinha Apollo Kite

     

    The 2017 Cabrinha Apollo Kite is a performance freeride kite designed to pull every bit of power out of the atmosphere and deliver it right into your hands. IThe 2017 Cabrinha Apollo Kite is purposely built for kiteboarding, meaning that it has been designed from the ground up specifically for the sport of kiteboarding. The 2017 Cabrinha Apollo Kites inflated skeletal frame of the kite sets it apart from a ram air kite in many ways. The 2017 Cabrinha Apollo Kites skeletal frame provides the structure that keeps the kite design true to its intended shape while in-flight. In shifty winds, the inflated struts drive the kite through turbulence with a minimal amount of deformation.

     

     

    The 2017 Cabrinha Apollo Kites inflated leading edge structure introduces the laminar flow of air across the kite’s Pure Profile panels, making it very stable even at low speeds. These inflation properties make the 2017 Cabrinha Apollo Kite unbeatable as a light wind performance kite and incredibly accurate as a high wind kite. It also goes without mention that an inflatable kite is much more reliable to relaunch, thereby making the 2017 Cabrinha Apollo Kite much safer and much more fun to ride than a ram air kite.

     

     

    2017 Cabrinha Apollo Kite Details

     

     

    2017 Cabrinha Apollo Kite Rider Profile

     

    The 2017 Cabrinha Apollo Kite is perfect for any type of riding where forward speed and acceleration must be matched by the speed of the kite with effortless management. Excellent for foil boarding or speed kiting.

     

    2017 Cabrinha Apollo Kite Design Profile

     

    5 Strut, Bow kite design, Pro Span technology, High aspect ration, 3 bridle setting options

     

     

    2017 Cabrinha Apollo Kite Technology

     

     Improves the relationship between the actual canopy area and the lifting canopy area. With Pro Span, a majority of the kite’s surface area is working for you in a lifting capacity which also improves speed and upwind performance. The key element is not the flat canopy area and aspect ratio of the design, but the in-flight projected area and projected aspect ratio. Once it takes shape in-flight the power comes from the efficiency, and the efficiency comes from decreasing the induced drag of the overall wing by having more lifting area focused in the “projected” power producing section of the wing. The defining feature of the Apollo is its ultra high aspect design which translates into a higher projected span.
       
    The layout starts in segmented sections in the design software, but, in-flight its natural shape is a smooth arc. In order to make the transition between segmented and curved, we doubled the aerodynamic control by cutting each canopy panel in half at the center section, providing the ultimate curvature control which is where 90% of the performance comes from. When a kite is clean and smooth it will be faster through the sky giving you a broader range of performance.
       

    We offer multiple tuning options this season which completely change the way a kite flies. These options allow you to customize the feedback and bar pressure, adjust where the kite sits in the window, and balance the power/ de-power range of the kite.

    Cabrinha highly recommends testing the different settings for yourself to find out what feels the best to you.

    A = The lightest bar pressure and lightest steering initiation.
    B = Much more feedback, more bar pressure, shortened depower, and more steering impulse to know where the kite is.

       
    The 1X is not a depower system, it is a full blown shut down system. The 1X relies on only one line to immediately shut down the power of the kite whether it be on land or water in all wind conditions.
       
    Power Control settings quickly adjust the power level of the kite. Each rear line “pig tail” connector has three power positions which you can connect to. The middle position is the factory recommended position. Create more power by connecting the knot closest to the kite or less power by connecting to the knot closest to the rider.
       
    Cabrinha’s exclusive line of high-quality woven fabrics has been designed specifically for kitesurfing. Unlike many of the generic sailcloths available in today’s kites, the Volae materials have been specially developed to our exact specifications. The development process has taken over 5 years to create this dedicated kite material, which delivers the lowest stretch and highest durability on the market.
       
    All Cabrinha kites are designed and built on a Skeletal Frame foundation. We start by placing the most durable, 160 gsm Dacron material into a framework that locks in the intended shape. We then create the canopy shape and profiles with a light weight yet highly durable 53 gsm polyester woven material. We build on the durability of the canopy material with a second layer of 53 gsm two-ply material over the high stress strut sections. Next, we layer into the perimeter a 75 gsm, double ripstop reinforcement material to combat the extreme loads that are placed on the trailing edge and wing tip areas of the kite. Finally, we complete the kite with details such as molded EVA chafe protectors, robust leading edge protectors, and triple row stitching at the high stress inter-segment seams near the center of the kite. We seal it all up with a woven nylon ribbon reinforcement on the leading edge closing seam. 
       
    A dynamic arc allows the kite to have two distinct arc shapes. The kite takes on one shape while flying, and another shape while in resting mode on the water. The flying shape occurs as soon as the kite gets airborne and the front lines are under tension. The flying shape is the kite’s intended shape which is optimized for the intended usage. The arc shape is held in place by a simple set of bridling. The dynamic arc shape occurs when the kite is not in flight, such as when the kite is resting on the water in relaunch mode. The dynamic arc allows the kite to open its span and orient the wingtips in a position to facilitate a super quick relaunch.
       
     

     

    The Sprint Inflation System with Airlock is the most efficient and easy way to get your kite pumped up. The large one-way Airlock valve quickly feeds air into all of the struts from a single location. The Airlock connection to the Sprint pump now requires no special adapters. Once inflated, you can lock off each strut independently to keep your kite’s rigid frame, and isolate any accidental strut deflation from the rest of the kite. When the session is over, the entire kite will deflate in seconds thanks to the Airlock valve’s large dump feature.

    Read more on what Crazyfly says about the 2017 Crazyfly Tango Kite

     

    The 2017 Crazyfly Tango Kite is a high performance freeride and wave kite for advanced to expert riders. The 2017 Crazyfly Tango Kite is a modern open C-shape kite with lots of pull, power and pop. The new 2017 Crazyfly Tango Kite loves boosting and floaty jumps with amazing hang time. The 2017 Crazyfly Tango Kite turns quickly with predictable power and moves exactly where the rider wants it to go. Powered kite loops come with ease, plus the 2017 Crazyfly Tango Kite provides amazing upwind abilities. For 2017, we have completely re-worked the 2017 Crazyfly Tango Kite construction, as it is now made in our own factory in Europe, which opened up unlimited options for improvements and innovation. Starting with the canopy material, we use the latest Double Ripstop. The new Double Ripstop is lighter, has the same tearing strength in all directions, and allows 30% less air through itself. This means that the same surface area of the new Double Ripstop catches a lot more air, which results in more power and much longer hangtime.

     

     

    On the 2017 Crazyfly Tango Kite wingtips of the canopy, we introduced a brand new United Dacron Panel technology. This revolutionary feature increases the kite’s rigidity and reactivity allowing for better flight experience. Every seam on the kite eventually gets stretched over time, especially in the area which is being pulled by the backlines the most. So, instead of using multiple Dacron panels, we used a single United Dacron Panel in this area. The reactions of the kite are noticeably quicker and the quick reactions do not fade over time. The connection of the canopy to the inflated base of the kite is more precise and stronger than ever. We moved the strut connection points on the leading edge much closer to the canopy. This is tedious work, but the canopy now precisely follows the profile of the strut and ensures much more efficient airflow. Another upgrade this year is the Synergy Strut Bond. Instead of a traditional single attachment seam, we connected the strut to the canopy with two parallel seams, creating the ultimate synergy between the strut and the kite. This synergy noticeably improved how the kite generates power during turns and kiteloops and how it holds its shape during flight.

     

     

    On the 2017 Crazyfly Tango Kites inflated frame, we narrowed down the number of leading edge panels by nearly 50% on all our kites. Because the material itself is always stronger than a seam, having less panels and less seams results in the most precise and the strongest leading edge till date. Towards the wingtips, a brand new Swept Leading Edge Seam is moved higher towards the canopy where it has less influence on airflow. This allows for higher aerodynamic efficiency and more precisely controlled kite. The 2017 Crazyfly Tango Kite received a brand new Linked Bridle, which does not have pulleys nor sliders and consists of only interconnected bridle lines. The bridle lines are connected to the leading edge and to each other only via loop ends ensuring the bridle always stays connected. The Linked Bridle creates a direct link between the rider and the kite, resulting in faster kite reactions and more precise handling. The Linked Bridle is also much more durable than conventional bridles, as it reduces bridle line movement and abrasion to minimum. Overall, by completely reworking the construction of the 2017 Crazyfly Tango Kite, the kite is much more rigid and more durable than ever before. With the brand new construction and exploiting different ways of printing, we managed to save 10% of weight again. This is 0,5kg weight saving on a 12m kite which noticeably extends the wind range of the kite. The 2017 Crazyfly Tango Kite raves with improvements and innovation and truly is the best Tango we have ever made. The 2017 Crazyfly Tango Kite – anything you want.

This also enables the kite to be steered and controlled when the kite is completely de-powered, which is ideal for wave riding.  

     

     

    2017 Airush Lithium Kite Construction

     

    All Airush kites feature the Hardcore Construction, a focus and commitment to structural integrity.

     

    1. AIRUSH FRAME TECHNOLOGY - Airush Frame technology distributes the load off all stitched lines on all main panels of the canopy area on impact during a crash, while the outer frame features gradient load wingtips that integrates progressive density cloth in te high load areas radiating from the attachment points. 

    2. ONE PUMP VALVES - Increased wall thickness and oversized diameter of the tubing eliminates tube kink and reduces stress on your pump, which facilitates quick and easy inflation. 

    3. GRADIENT LOAD WINGTIPS - Gradient load wingtips integrate progressive density cloth in the high load areas radiating from the attachment points. Bomb proof trailing edge (TE) construction featuring a 3 layer tapering of heavy duty dacron material to increase durability of the te. Available on the DNA and Lithium 

    4. FOUR PIECE STRUTS - The new 4-piece strut has added a double folded straight stitch seam aligned with a 20mm wide webbing strip to reduce point of wearing. This increases durability and rigidness of the struts in all Airush kites. 

    5. STRUT CONNECTION - The Unity Strut Connection provides a solid point connection from strut to leading egded to create a stiff structure which helps in performance and relaunching.

    2017 Crazyfly Sculp Kite Features

     

    Swept Leading Edge Seam - By challenging the traditional kite construction for improvements, we came up with the swept leading edge seam. The leading edge seam on the wingtips of the kite is swept higher towards the canopy where it has less influence on airflow. This allows for higher aerodynamic efficiency and more precisely controlled kite.
       
    Dacron Shields - Brand new this year, we introduced large Dacron shields to reinforce stress joint areas on the kite and also to protect these areas from wear. Unlike 3D shaped plastic protectors which are not aerodynamic, the Dacron Shields are snug and allow for efficient airflow. Dacron is highly resistant to abrasion and increases the kite’s durability.
       
    United Dacron Panel - This revolutionary feature increases the kite’s rigidity and reactivity allowing for better flight experience. Every seam on the kite gets stretched over time, especially in the stressed area pulled by the backlines. So, instead of using multiple Dacron panels, we used a single United Dacron Panel. The reactions of the kite are noticeably quicker and they do not fade over time.
       
    Synergy Strut Bond - Another upgrade this year is the Synergy Strut Bond, in other words, how the struts connects to the canopy of the kite. Instead of a single attachment seam, we connected the strut to the canopy with two parallel seams, creating the ultimate synergy between the strut and the kite. This synergy noticeably improved how the kite generates power during turns and kiteloops and how it holds its shape during flight.
       
    Sinusoid Trailing Edge - This year, we have completely re-designed the trailing edge. Instead of using a straight stripe of extra ripstop, we created a much stronger Sinusoid Trailing Edge made from Marcloth. The sinusoid shape evenly spreads tension and reduces flap. This results in a much stronger and more solid trailing edge.
       
    Arptex - Arptex sits at the top of abrasion resistant polyamide textiles. This high tech fabric made in Italy can handle plenty of abuse without getting damaged. The official number is 100 000 contacts with abrasive surface before the material starts deteriorating. This is why we selected Arptex as the most suitable material to protect CrazyFly kites in the most abused areas.
       
    Linked Bridle - Brand new for 2017 kites, the Linked Bridle does not have any pulleys nor sliders. It creates a direct link between the rider and the kite, resulting in faster kite reactions and more controlled handling. The Linked Bridle is also much more durable than conventional bridles, as it reduces bridle line movement and abrasion to minimum.
       
    Two in One Leading Edge - We narrowed down the number of panels by nearly 50% on all our kites. Because the material itself is always stronger than a seam, having less panels and less seams results in a much stronger leading edge. Less seams also increase precision of the leading edge shape, as seams can cause a small misalignment. The two in one leading edge is the most precise and the strongest leading edge till date.
       
    Strut End Protection - The strut ends are one of the most abused areas, mainly when carrying the kite inflated on the beach, or during self launches. The strut ends are strategically reinforced with Arptex material, which sits at the top of abrasion resistant polyamide textiles.
       
    Strut Junction - We have completely changed how the strut is connected to the leading edge. The connection is now stronger, cleaner and straighter without unwanted material folds, which cause quicker wear. The whole junction is reinforced with Arptex material for ultimate strength and durability.
       
    Soft Leading Edge End - Towards the end, the leading edge diameter has been optimized and decreases to prevent the bladder slipping out of the kite under pressure. The inside of the leading edge end is lined with a softer version of Arptex to create a cushion for the bladder and prevent any damage to the bladder during a kite crash. On the outside the Leading Edge Ends are protected with Arptex, the latest abrasion resistant polyamide textile from Italy.
       
    Wingtip Elbow - The Wingtip Elbow construction is stronger than ever with brand new Dacron reinforcements on the inside and Marcloth lining on the outside. Plus, the Swept Leading Edge Seam is placed in the direction in which the elbow was bending the most. These factors minimize the elbow movement, so the kite is more compact, has higher aerodynamic efficiency and better handling.
       
    Light Weight Zipper - Unlike on other kites, we selected a slimmer Lightweight Zipper covered with webbing to prevent sand from getting stuck into the zipper. This results in flawless function of the zipper, saves weight on the kite and overall looks much cleaner than a big heavy uncovered plastic zipper.
       
    Built-in Pump Leash - The Pump Leash is one piece with the central strut reinforcement. Instead of sewing the pump leash on the kite separately, which creates a point of weakness on the leading edge, we opted for creating the pump leash from the central strut reinforcement.
       
    Double Ripstop - The most technologically advanced ripstop material for a kite canopy. This high density polyester yarn provides for ultra light weight, high tearing strength and long lasting durability. This year, the Double Ripstop has a brand new coating which increases strength by 30% and minimizes stretching of the material. The new Double Ripstop is lighter, has the same tearing strength in all directions, and allows 30% less air through itself.
       
    Turbo Inflate Deflate - All CrazyFly kites are equipped with Turbo inflate/deflate valve. Inflation and deflation of the kite are made through the same valve. The kite is fully inflated and deflated in seconds. This year, the Turbo valve has a new cover made from Arptex, which does not intake water and does not add weight to the kite.
       
    One Pump System - The One Pump System allow for quicker and easier inflation and deflation of the kite and ensure even pressure distribution throughout the kite. The valves are made from the highest quality material available and are manufactured in Europe. Brand new this year, the one pump hose clips are covered with Arptex, which unlike Neoprene does not intake water which reduces weight.
       
    Custom Colors - All 2017 CrazyFly kite colors are custom developed shades supplied exclusively to CrazyFly only.
       
    CNC Cutting & Sewing - CNC controlled laser cutting ensures maximum precision of all kite panels and results in accurate kite shapes. CNC controlled laser cutting also reduces waste of offcut material. CNC sewing is used for critical and difficult seams on all CrazyFly kites. This technology eliminates human error and enables perfection to be repeated on every seam.
       
    Marcloth Fusion Lining - Our engineers use Marcloth to strengthen all areas where the heavy duty kite frame materials meet the lightweight canopy. Marcloth is a mid-weight high strength fabric, ideal to create the ultimate fusion between the higher weight and lighter weight fabrics. All transitions between the frame and canopy are in round shapes, rather than sharp angles and straight lines, as the round shapes spread tension more evenly. Of course, this increases the durability of the kite.
       
    Snow & Sand Protectors - The Snow & Sand Protectors on the leading edge protect the kite from damage caused by dragging the kite on snow or land when launching or relaunching the kite.
       
    Back Lines Tuning - There are three back line settings on the wingtip of the kite. These allow the rider to tune the kite to his or her preferences. The fast back line set up provides the quickest turning of the kite and the lightest bar pressure. On the medium setting the kite still turns relatively quickly and there is more load on the bar. On the slow setting the kite turns noticeably slower and the bar pressure is high.

    • The BANDIT is probably the best selling kite in the world!
    • How can such a success spread over all these years be explained?
    • How has the BANDIT been able to navigate through all the trends and fashions?
    • Could the BANDIT be like a diamond which gets crafted over time?

     

    First of all, the 2017 F-One Bandits success proves that opting, ever since the first edition, for the DELTA C SHAPE concept that we developed and patented, was the right choice over the long term since this has really answered the demands of the users. The flight behavior qualities brought by this design, its relaunch abilities and its safety have carved the longevity of the 2017 F-One Bandit when other concepts have required re-design or have simply disappeared. We also pay a lot of attention to the trends of our sport and the 2017 F-One Bandit has always followed these evolution’s. Our design goals, each after year, has a wide array of performance and flying abilities, which is rather uncommon for an individual kite. The complete set of tests and checks that we perform on every single prototype of each collection is truly uncompromising therefore pushing the kites to the maximum. Year after year, every aspect deemed as slightly under performing is improved, while keeping all the qualities achieved to that point. When designing the kites power is always prioritized when developing the larger sizes while strapless and wave riding are the main design criteria for the smaller sizes. We work to make sure the whole range is fully consistent so that every different size can be handled with confidence and no adaptation is required. Every size benefits from the same level of quality and performance as the others. Micka and Raphael have been the unique developers since the first 2017 F-One Bandit! We have therefore been testing this kite together for the last 10 years while Robert Graham joined us 4 years ago to take care of the technical design that helped us improving the kite ever more. During the 10-month long development period, our R&D team remains constantly focused on the evolution of the 2017 F-One Bandit. Between 70 and 80 prototypes and a lot of testing days on the water (more than 200 this year) are required to create a new generation. As an example, one week of tests in Cabo Verde represents 450km per tester on the water to test between 5 and 10 prototypes. Unlike what can be heard here or there, the 2017 F-One Bandit isn’t a compromise resulting in just average performances… No, the 2017 F-One Bandit actually excels in many disciplines and can be found on numerous podiums whether for comparative reviews or actual competition events. It’s easy to explain that our kite is the most versatile kite in the world by using superlatives… but explaining why and how is actually a lot more interesting. Yet, the usual question still remains: what have you improved on this new collection? The 2017 F-One Bandit features many qualities, which sometimes appear to oppose each other and this is where the challenge lies. How can we get power but keep the high range? Hang time and boost but with some comfort? Make the kite maneuverable but keep it stable? Build it light and always robust? All the R&D work lies in these opposing characteristics that are nevertheless all required when you kite. To be honest, gathering the impossible and transforming all the sensations that this piece of fabric provides is what we like so much. So we can take on a lot. Not taking anything for granted and leaving no stone unturned is essential. For its tenth edition, we wanted the 2017 F-One Bandit to keep all its qualities but become even easier and more comfortable to fly. Because, whether we are thinking of the pro-riders, ourselves or our customers, having a more comfortable and intuitive kite is a bonus whatever your level. We remain focused on the core values: the feeling and the enjoyment brought by the kite. To make sure each session is enjoyed whatever the conditions and to make sure you keep improving your riding and enhance your passion and motivation.

     

     

    BANDIT X:
    Most of our work has been focused on traction and speed. For its tenth year, the new 2017 F-One Bandit provides a unique traction.
    Powerful enough to achieve early planing, the kite seems to self-regulate naturally to pull you effortlessly. What is most surprising is that we have got rid of the lateral pull so that you can ride with less pressure on your back and in your legs. Riding upwind is amazingly easy, traction is softer and totally regulated. Why speed? We started from the idea that everything gets easier if we can ride slower. Things like absorbing the chop, edge and load before jumping, surfing… so pretty much all we do while riding. The novelty is that the BANDIT X will pull you with less speed without losing its other qualities such as power and boost when you need it. When over-powered, it keeps its performance and the profile remains clean with no distortions. The 2017 F-One Bandit remains stable, comfortable and efficient even in impressively strong winds. All these qualities will benefit all kitesurfers but they will be even more appreciated when riding strapless. You will also notice a change in the shape: the wingtips of the BANDIT X are slightly wider and squarer. This brings more maneuverability and a lighter feel. Each size feels a little smaller and more responsive while remaining very intuitive. Its hang-time, boost and lift during the jumps have also been improved. It is easier to send the kite to the zenith thanks to the better control we get when edging and the boost is powerful and clean. The improved profile brings a lot of lift when gliding down. Kite loops are even neater and faster for maximum thrills and ease of use.

     

     

    The bar is what links you to the kite so it is therefore an important element to preserve the steering qualities of a kite. For this 10th 2017 F-One Bandit, we have improved the progression of the bar pressure as you sheet in. The pressure rises step by step as you sheet in giving you a very clear and accurate feedback on the power available. The bar angle required to turn the kite and steer it is low and this allows us to use shorter bars. The pressure rises also together with the angle and there is no gap or delay. You know exactly where is the kite without needing to look at it. You feel like you are in direct grip with the kite – everything feels very natural and intuitive. There is therefore no period of adaptation needed and you feel confident straight away throw your latest tricks. Year after year, the construction and reinforcements are improved based on feedback from all over the world. The BANDIT X is delivered as the fruit of a long and unique development process offering flawless manufacturing quality. Safety is also part of the design priorities: the impressive range of use and control offered by the kite, together with its construction quality, its relaunch ability using the Delta C Shape concept and its efficient safety release which enables an easy re-connection to relaunch and carry on riding in any situation, all contribute to the safety level offered by the kite in everyday use. The BANDIT X is an exceptionally thrilling kite and our motivation to improve it year after year is limitless. It is not the latest, marketing based, trendy kite with fancy but useless accessories. It remains pure/untouched/authentic and the fruit of our passion for kitesurfing and R&D.

    Read more on what F-One says about the 2017 F-One Mitu Monteiro Pro Model

     

    The 2017 F-One Mitu Monteiro Pro Model range is the 4th edition of this bestseller! The 2017 F-One Mitu Monteiro Pro Model high performance boards especially designed for strapless riding became a reference on the market in just a few years. This year, the range receives two new models: the ultra-light CARBON version and the ESL version! Throughout the years, Mitu has acquired an impressive experience and expertise while being a clear pioneer of strapless riding. Having a really good feel for the gear with some sharp analytical skills and a lot of curiosity, he got totally involved in the development of his pro model. Mitu also likes to try a lot of different boards while kiting but also for surfing. His approach therefore stays true to F-ONE’s ethos of creating products that are high performance but always remain ultra-versatile.

     

     

    The 2017 F-One Mitu Monteiro Pro Model receives the proven HD FOAM FLEX COMPOSITE construction which improves the board so much thanks to its flexibility and comfort. This includes a high density foam sandwich, with optimized flex to improve reliability, provide outstanding comfort and better maneuverability while keeping the boards lighter. The 2017 F-One Mitu Monteiro Pro Model HEEL SHOCK ABSORBER featured on the deck softens all impacts and landings for the rider while increasing the board durability. With the compact outline and the rounded nose, we have achieved a shorter board which keeps some great directional stability. The 2017 F-One Mitu Monteiro Pro Model outline is designed to make the tricks easier and get a more responsive board. Yet the boards remain rather wide to get a lot of lift and make the most of the waves’ energy. Looking at the bottom, we have used a very deep single concave that extends all the way back to the fins. This guarantees an early planing with sharp accelerations on and off the surf while helping out dealing with the chop. 

     

     

    The 2017 F-One Mitu Monteiro Pro Model two smaller sizes, which include the 5’6’’ and a new 5’4’’, benefit from a bit more rocker on the tail to achieve more maneuverability and control, especially in the surf. On the other side, the 2017 F-One Mitu Monteiro Pro Model two larger sizes, 5’8’’ & 5’10’’, the concave has been reduced slightly around the fins to make the board easier and more progressive in the turns and while carving. The 2017 F-One Mitu Monteiro Pro Model boards are all equipped with a tri-fin setup for a faster ride and a lighter weight for the tricks. On deck, the CAMEL DECK shape helps nesting your feet into the board for an incredible control while the grab rail at the front will help out during the tricks. By testing it on all the different spots of his island Mitu pushed hard to develop a truly innovative range of boards which excels in all kind of riding. A typical day usually includes some freestyle at Kite Beach in the morning, followed by a kite wave session in Ponta Preta in the afternoon, before a late surfing session in the evening when the wind has gone. And doing it all with the same board does not seem to take anything off his impressive riding level!

    The 2017 F-One Signature Surfboards are designed for pure surfing with a shape that comes out of a long evolution of our kite surfboards. This year we introduce an utltra lightweight carbon version. With the Camel Deck shape, the 2017 F-One Signature Surfboard volume has been maximized in the middle sections of the boards before fading out towards to tail to keep heel of the rear foot as low as possible for a better control. The 2017 F-One Signature Surfboard Heel Shock Absorber featured on deck makes sure all impacts feel softer for the rider to achieve a smoother ride and increases the board durability.The 2017 F-One Signature Surfboard rail is thick and rounded towards the nose to make the board more forgiving with more stability and support from the front sections. The 2017 F-One Signature Surfboard bottom shape features a single concave on the front half of the board, evolving further aft into a straight V shape at the fins. The 2017 F-One Signature Surfboard concave provides a smoother ride and a better balance while the V tail ensures the board remains super responsive. Switching from one rail to the other is quick and simple as the board enters the turns with ease, gaining also in maneuverability thanks to its round pin tail. 

     

     

    Benefitting from more volume and length, the 2017 F-One Signature Surfboard 5’10 will fit the larger riders or the larger waves. Being slightly shorter, the 2017 F-One Signature Surfboard 5’8 will let you carve the most radical turns and rollers with a more compact board under your feet. Compact, stable and responsive the Signature boards are made for surfing in any kind of waves or conditions, benefiting from their well balanced and really intuitive shape.

    From design and testing to incremental perfecting, the 2017 Naish Torch Kite is a product of years of collaboration with the top kiters in the world in the most demanding conditions. The 2017 Naish Torch Kite is flown year after year on the world tour, consistently dominating the King of the Air, the 2017 Naish Torch Kite has pushed the boundaries of what was ever conceived possible. Offering smooth power delivery, with depower similar to that of a bridled kite, the 2017 Naish Torch Kite delivers precision response for hooked and unhooked riding.

     

     

    Now available to a broader skillset, less experienced kiters can still ride like Jesse Richman, or Kevin Langeree with the 2017 Naish Torch Kites new ESP setting, which allows riders to adjust the depower to have more forgiving control with all the performance. Taking this sought-after C-kite to the next level, the addition of the Quad-Tex canopy makes the 2017 Naish Torch Kitepractically indestructible.

     

     

    Already engineered for solid control and handling in strong winds, the addition of Quad-Tex's 4x-reinforced ripstop and perfectly balanced weave matrix testing 30% stronger and stiffer than any other around heightens the stability and responsiveness of the 2017 Naish Torch Kites design. The 2017 Naish Torch Kites pinnacle of freestyle performance just became stronger and more accessible; time to experience the pure precision of the 2017 Naish Torch Kite.

     

     

    2017 Naish Torch Kite Features

     

    • Quad-Tex - Strongest kite canopy material on the market featuring 4x-reinforced ripstop
    • Canopy Stabilizer - Trailing edge reinforcement for reduced flutter and canopy sheer/wear
    • Precision response for hooked and unhooked riding
    • Superior unhooked control
    • ESP - Greater angle of attack control for more instant depower
    • Solid power through turns
    • Reduced leading edge taper
    • Ultra-reinforced Wingtip construction - Strength in wipeouts/surf-ready
    • Constant leading edge taper - Increased rigidity in wing tip for sharper turning
    • High Flow Valve - One way valve for reduced frictional force + easy inflation + immediate deflation
    • Angled Wing Tip - Torsion transmission to entire LE and low drag on water for relaunch
    • Three-strut Design - Lightweight, light wind performance + faster turning
    • C-Shape - This proven airframe design delivers maximum pop and lift. The non-swept outline aligns the center of effort with the tow point for perfect loading through the canopy at all times, resulting in power through the turn.
    • Radial Load Distribution - All wing tips are designed with seams running parallel to the load generated by the flying lines. These seams carry most of the load and spread it higher into the canopy. This design helps prevent fatigue on the fabric and in the wing tip area.
    • Lightweight Solid Frame Construction - Every strut is attached to an optimized, lightweight frame consisting of heavy-duty dacron that is then sewn onto the canopy for unmatched resistance to wear and heavy loads.
    • Octopus Inflation System - This proven, quick, and easy single-point inflation system creates uniform pressure in the struts and leading edge. Naish's exclusive one-way internal valve ensures that the pressure within the struts does not change during turns.
    • Low Drag Wing Tip - This wing tip geometry decreases the overall surface area of the non-lifting portion, greatly reducing drag. The more efficient the lift/drag ratio becomes, the faster the wing tip can move through the air. This allows the kite to be both quicker and more responsive through turns.
    • Radial Segmented Arc - The radial segmented shape uses short linear segments to a ccurately form the kite's arc. 
    • Evolutive Profile - The profile's depth and shape evolves along the airfoil, helping create a fast flying, stable kite with less back stalling. The center sections generate power thanks to a deeper profile, while the flatter profile in the tips minimizes drag and allows faster turning.
    • Power Foil Canopy - The power foil canopy has horizontal seam shaping. The result is a kite that creates instant lift.

    Read more on what Slingshot says about the 2017 Slingshot Turbine Kite

     

    • High-aspect, high-efficiency platform in a full range of sizes
    • High-performance handling for intermediate to advanced riders
    • Shape and aspect favor speed and superior efficiency
    • Unrivaled upwind tracking
    • Massive airs, lofty hangtime

     

     

    Full power in a full range: The 2017 Slingshot Turbine Kite has proven to be one of the best light-wind kites ever made. The 2017 Slingshot Turbine Kite is unleashing this high-aspect, high-efficiency machine in a full range of sizes. All the same qualities that make the 2017 Slingshot Turbine Kite such a great light wind kite translate to an aggressive, high-power, high-performance weapon as you go down in size and up in wind speed. 

     

     

    15, 17, 19 meter: The proven light wind kite of choice for riders of all abilities. The 2017 Slingshot Turbine Kites high-aspect, high-efficiency profile gets you out and riding when others watch from the shore hoping for the wind to pick up. 
    11, 13 meter: Perfect for intermediate to advanced riders who want a massive dose of spice on those moderate-wind days, or as a full light-wind kite for smaller riders. This range yields long, lofty airs, aggressive upwind angles and more power than any kite of the same size.
    5, 7, 9 meter: Massive air, lofty hangtime and aggressive, high-power freeride performance. Described as “a Rally on steroids”, this size range is perfect for experienced riders who are ready to take their riding to the next level, and for foilers looking for competition-level performance out of a small kite. 

    * Kite-down: The 2017 Slingshot Turbine Kite is a high-power kite. For that reason, we recommend kiting down at least one size from what you would normally ride.

     

     

    2017 Slingshot Turbine Kite Product Details

     

     

    Turbine bridle: The Turbine features a five-point cascading bridle and optimized leading edge and strut design. This configuration is engineered to give the Turbine stability and structure across a huge range of available sizes and provide easy relaunch in all wind conditions.  

     

     

    Split Strut: Invented by Slingshot and adopted as the industry gold standard in canopy construction, Split Strut design integrates the kite’s struts into the structure of the canopy. This results a stronger, more stable and more durable canopy. SplitStrut enhances power under heavy load and creates superior efficiency and rigidity in the overall frame.

     

     

    One-Pump: Slingshot patented the One-Pump system years ago, and today the innovation can be found on almost every kite on the market. The One Pump Speed System makes inflating your kite quick and easy; simply attach your hose and pump your entire kite from one convenient valve. Deflating is just as easy. This might not seem like a big deal, but if you’ve ever had to inflate and deflate your leading edge and all your struts individually, you know how nice it really is.

     

     

    Customize Your Ride: The Turbine features multiple attachment points at the kite- both on the leading and trailing edge- that allow riders to fine-tune the kite’s handling and performances based on their riding style and the conditions of a particular session. This tuning is done quickly and easily and makes a big impact on the kite’s overall performance; you can choose different settings for boosting big, for unhooked freestyle, for user-friendly freeride or for riding waves, to name a few.  

     

     

    Bomber Slingshot Construction

    Tri-Tech protection: Ballistic Kevlar, Mark Cloth and Neoprene scuff guards are strategically placed to protect vulnerable areas of the kite from scratches, punctures wear and tear. 

    Surf Tough tech: Strategic panel layout, superior canopy materials and precision engineered seams and stitching result in kites that can take proper beatings without issue. Slingshot’s unique panel layout not only adds strength and canopy structure, it also helps contain the damage to your kite in the event that it does tear or get punctured. 

    Dimension Polyant 175 Dacron: DP175 is a premium canopy material used solely by Slingshot in the kiteboarding industry. This high-strength, high tenacity material is resistant to bias stretch and retains its structure exceptionally well, which is why we utilize it for every high performance kite we build. Where other brands have cut corners and selected lesser materials to reduce costs, Slingshot has remained committed to quality. 

    Bayer Material Science Polyurethane Bladders: Slingshot bladders are made in the USA to precision specs using high-quality polyurethane.

    2017 Slingshot Rally Kite Product Details

     

     
    More info: Slingshot has reworked and refined the Rally over the years to polish the kite into what it is today. In 2016 we made some slight adjustments to the geometry and bridles to increase handling and steering speed. Those changes were very well received, so we’ve carried them over for 2017 and have added a couple other subtle modifications. For sizes 8, 9 and 10 we’ve made very subtle changes in geometry and strut diameter to clean up the canopy ever so slightly. Trailing edge tension is now controlled with the addition of Teijin T2 Polyester rip stop canopy material. This decreases trailing edge flutter and increases durability. We reinforced the one-pump inflation valve’s connection to the bladder to help prevent blowouts caused by improper hose attachment/detachment. Finally, we added two Kevlar patches to prevent bridle rub on the trailing edges.
     
     
    Customize power, bar pressure, response and handling with multiple attachment points: 
    The 2017 Slingshot Rally Kite features multiple attachment points that allow riders to fine-tune the kite’s handling and performances based on their riding style and the conditions of a particular session. This tuning is done quickly and easily and makes a big impact on the kite’s overall performance; you can choose different settings for boosting big, for unhooked freestyle, for user-friendly depower or for riding waves, to name a few. 
     
     
    Bomber Slingshot construction: Have unrivaled confidence in your gear, and in your investment, with bombproof Slingshot construction: Slingshot coined the term Surf-Tough more than a decade ago, and today we take pride in our reputation for building the most durable kites on the market. Slingshot’s bombproof durability gives riders the trust and confidence they need to push themselves, and their gear, to new limits. As an investment, due to superior construction and durability, Slingshot kites hold up exceptionally well over time and have a high resale value. Slingshot designer Tony Logosz has defined quality kite design and innovation since day-one by. Many major construction techniques popular today started with Slingshot.
     
     
    Split Strut technology: Ride with confidence and control with a stronger, more stable and more ridged canopy. Created by Slingshot, SplitStrut technology has become the gold standard in kite design. Split-Strut integrates the kite’s canopy and struts into one firmly interconnected piece. This is a major design element in all of Slingshot’s kites, and it results in a stronger, more stable and far more durable canopy. SplitStrut enhances power under heavy load and creates efficiency and rigidity in the overall frame.
     
     
    Save time and energy with Slingshot’s ONE PUMP SPEED SYSTEM: Slingshot invented the one-pump concept years ago, and today the innovation can be found on almost every kite on the market. The One Pump Speed System makes inflating your kite quick and easy; simply attach your hose and pump your entire kite from one convenient valve. Deflating is just as easy. This might not seem like a big deal, but if you’ve ever had to inflate and deflate your leading edge and all your struts individually, you know how important it really is.

    Read more on what Cabrinha says about the 2017 Cabrinha Chaos Kite

     

    The 2017 Cabrinha Chaos Kite is a high aspect C-shape kite designed to win freestyle competitions. Proving its capabilities, it carried Liam Whaley to the top of the 2016 Freestyle World Tour Championship ladder. The 2017 Cabrinha Chaos Kite gives you the pop and line slack you need to make unhooked tricks effortlessly. Its advantage over its rivals is its wide wind range. The 2017 Cabrinha Chaos Kites extended suspension lines or C-port lines add support to the leading edge to maintain arc shape and add flight stability.

     

     

    This ensures torsional freedom and movement to the kite for a stable and supported ride. The 2017 Cabrinha Chaos Kite is tuned for freestyle moves and flies through turns, rather than pivoting through the wing tips, so you can throw a kite loop with the tightest arc possible. Its bar pressure stays light but delivers the right amount of feedback to let you know where the kite is at all times. Customizable steering options offer either quicker turns, or a more stable kite position for handle passes.

    2017 Cabrinha Chaos Kite Technology

     

    Cabrinha’s exclusive line of high-quality woven fabrics has been designed specifically for kitesurfing. Unlike many of the generic sailcloths available in today’s kites, the Volae materials have been specially developed to our exact specifications. The development process has taken over 5 years to create this dedicated kite material, which delivers the lowest stretch and highest durability on the market.
       
    All Cabrinha kites are designed and built on a Skeletal Frame foundation. We start by placing the most durable, 160 gsm Dacron material into a framework that locks in the intended shape. We then create the canopy shape and profiles with a light weight yet highly durable 53 gsm polyester woven material. We build on the durability of the canopy material with a second layer of 53 gsm two-ply material over the high stress strut sections. Next, we layer into the perimeter a 75 gsm, double ripstop reinforcement material to combat the extreme loads that are placed on the trailing edge and wing tip areas of the kite. Finally, we complete the kite with details such as molded EVA chafe protectors, robust leading edge protectors, and triple row stitching at the high stress inter-segment seams near the center of the kite. We seal it all up with a woven nylon ribbon reinforcement on the leading edge closing seam.
       
    A dynamic arc allows the kite to have two distinct arc shapes. The kite takes on one shape while flying, and another shape while in resting mode on the water. The flying shape occurs as soon as the kite gets airborne and the front lines are under tension. The flying shape is the kite’s intended shape which is optimized for the intended usage. The arc shape is held in place by a simple set of bridling. The dynamic arc shape occurs when the kite is not in flight, such as when the kite is resting on the water in relaunch mode. The dynamic arc allows the kite to open its span and orient the wingtips in a position to facilitate a super quick relaunch.
       
    The Sprint Inflation System with Airlock is the most efficient and easy way to get your kite pumped up. The large one-way Airlock valve quickly feeds air into all of the struts from a single location. The Airlock connection to the Sprint pump now requires no special adapters. Once inflated, you can lock off each strut independently to keep your kite’s rigid frame, and isolate any accidental strut deflation from the rest of the kite. When the session is over, the entire kite will deflate in seconds thanks to the Airlock valve’s large dump feature.
       
    Power Control settings quickly adjust the power level of the kite. Each rear line “pig tail” connector has three power positions which you can connect to. The middle position is the factory recommended position. Create more power by connecting the knot closest to the kite or less power by connecting to the knot closest to the rider.
       
    The layout starts in segmented sections in the design software, but, in-flight its natural shape is a smooth arc. In order to make the transition between segmented and curved, we doubled the aerodynamic control by cutting each canopy panel in half at the center section, providing the ultimate curvature control which is where 90% of the performance comes from. When a kite is clean and smooth it will be faster through the sky giving you a broader range of performance.
       

    We offer multiple tuning options this season which completely change the way a kite flies. These options allow you to customize the feedback and bar pressure, adjust where the kite sits in the window, and balance the power/ de-power range of the kite.

    Cabrinha highly recommends testing the different settings for yourself to find out what feels the best to you.

    A = The lightest bar pressure and lightest steering initiation.
    B = Much more feedback, more bar pressure, shortened depower, and more steering impulse to know where the kite is.

       
    The 1X is not a depower system, it is a full blown shut down system. The 1X relies on only one line to immediately shut down the power of the kite whether it be on land or water in all wind conditions.
