Kiteboarding

Kiteboarding, kitesurfing, or whatever you want to call it, is a fast growing extreme sport that combines aspects of surfing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, paragliding, and more. Over the years, the sport has developed and evolved from attaching kites to canoes, skis, and iceskates in the 1980s, to strapping kite foils to windsurfing boards in 1990s. Soon after, specialized kites and boards were developed and the sport of Kiteboarding was born! In the sport’s short history, incredible advancements in technology have been made and each year better, lighter, more durable, and more reliable kiteboards, kites, and other kiteboarding gear have been made.

  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
    • Rigid and strong, yet lightweight
     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

There are different styles of kiteboarding, from freeride or freestyle, wave-riding, and even course and speed racing. The freeride kiteboarding style is pretty much the “anything goes” approach and is the most popular. Most kiteboards sold today are freeride boards with twin tips. The freestyle style of riding is focused on getting big air and doing airborne tricks. Smaller boards and kites with good hang times are used. The wave-riding kiteboarding style is closest to surfing since it is done in a location with a wave break, which is why the sport is often referred to as kitesurfing. This style most often uses a single-point directional board, sometimes without footstraps, and some even use a standard surfboard. The wakestyle style of kiteboarding is most similar to wakeboarding and is focused on tricks and aerials and uses boards with bindings to keep riders strapped in. There are also course racing and speed racing kiteboarding styles which involve speed, skill, and strategy. Specially designed directional race boards with longer fins are used with the goal of outperforming the other kiters to come in first place.
