The new 2015 HQ Matrixx II is the next logical step after the first Matrixx and sets a new standard in terms of versatility.
Design and Performance
For the new Matrixx II, our design took an in-depth look and took on the latest knowledge of paragliding designs. With almost the same AR, we were able to increase the performance of the kite in every aspect. This is not only due to the new kite design, but also the performance has improved due to the new super light 20D fabric.
The new Matrixx II feels more direct, faster and offers more performance than ever before, the lift, hang time and turning speed are at a higher level. The size split of the Matrixx II is unique. The smaller sizes are well optimized for the mid wind range. The 15 and 18m are especially trimmed for light winds. Due to the usage of a lighter rib material than on the other sizes the weight on the 18m was reduced to only 3.5kg incl. the bar. This makes the 18m to be one of the best light windkites on the market.
Choice of material
The new Matrixx II has a well-chosen mix of different high-spec materials. Every size of the Matrixx II is equipped with our super light 20D ripstop materials. This material saves around 35% of weight in regards to the previous version.
For the bridle, we have chosen a super thin spliced Dyneema line, this will help to reduce the drag produced by the kite and help it to fly faster. We have also chosen material which has been proven for many years within the kiting industry highly effective for the mixer and flying lines. The precision of the manufacturing of the kite is extremely high, only using high standards like this we have been able to build a kite to a high specification and standard of performance.
