Flysurfer Speed 4 Lotus
The Flysurfer Speed 4 Lotus is an air tight, lightweight and durable kite all-terrain kite for water, land and snow. With a great performance in speed, hangtime and light wind efficiency, this unique kite is a great choice for both advanced riders and those new to foils. The Speed 4 Lotus combines low-end performance with maximum upwind ability like no other, while remaining smooth and fast in its turning behavior.
Without exaggeration the Flysurfer Speed4 Lotus is the best performing kite that we have ever built. Whether in low end, turningspeed, relaunch, jumping characteristics or depower & hellip; Almost everywhere we have been able to set new limits. Yet it's performance is more accessible than ever 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.
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!
