Windrange

FX

FREESTYLE / CROSSOVER

Sizes: 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 12 / 14

For riders that mix hooked and unhooked freestyle tricks and like to kiteloop. The wide wind range offers more versatility than a traditional “C” shape, and offers smooth power delivery with predictable handling. The FX is designed to bridge the gap between advanced freestyle and performance freeride kites.

DESIGN PROFILE:

The FX implements an upright modified C shape design to get the best performance characteristics of a C shape with the versatility of a hybrid outline. The FX delivers a fast turn in a tight arc which makes it perfect for kite looping.... hooked or unhooked. Its lean entry and profile allows the kite to reach its zenith after a loop to give you a soft and controlled landing.

3 Strut, Modified C shape arc, Box wing tip design, Lean entry profile.

5m & 6m available in blue colour way only.

    Technology

  • Upon activation of 1X’s single line flagging system the power of a kite is immediately killed and it will rest motionless on the water or land.

  • Dynamic arc allows the kite to have two distinct arc shapes. The arc of the kite takes on one shape while flying, and another shape while in resting mode on the water. While resting on the water the arc opens up slightly to facilitate an easier relaunch.

  • Our all new Dacron is specifically designed for inflated kite structures. The construction of this material is very warp oriented using ultra high tenacity yarns with an increased thread count to combat elongation in the warp direction under high inflation pressures. Lower elongation makes for a more accurate kite with less deformation while in flight.

  • The strategically placed panels provide ultimate control over the aerodynamic profiles in the kite. Smooth and stable profile entry. Improved overall kite efficiency, performance, and range. Faster flying through the sky giving you a broader range of performance.

  • Provides the structure that keeps the kite design true to its intended shape while in-flight. The stable frame drives the kite through turbulence with a minimal amount of deformation and has excellent overall de-power. The inflated leading edge introduces the laminar flow of air across the kite’s Pure Profile panels, for a quick recovery if stalled and prevents the kite folding on itself. The inflatable structure reduces the amount of bridling required for stability. It also provides safety by providing some flotation in the water, and enables easy re-launch.

  • The Sprint inflation systems is the most efficient and easy way to get your kite inflated and deflated quickly.. The enlarged Airlock valve quickly feeds air into all of the struts from a single location. The Airlock connection to the Sprint pump 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.
