Kite

Allround freestyle C-kite

Designers goals

Slash is a 5 strut and 5 line C- shaped kite which delivers some serious Pro competition freestyle performance. What may seem surprising is the fact that Slash still offers high depower and very easy relaunch even without a bridle system.

Slash can be easily and safely used by intermediate riders due to its high depower system. Slash is not a pure old fashion C kite, although it has all the advantages of it, Slash is quite a bit of an allrounder as well. Even though there is a fast power potential that comes with Slash, it is up to the rider to decide how much power will be unleashed. With a five line system and no bridle Slash has instant control and extremely quick reactions. Slash has huge pop, steady pull and massive kiteloops come with ease. For those riders looking for loads of power for un-hooked freestyle tricks, Slash is definitely the right choice.

The rider can choose between two basic set ups,freestyle or wakestyle. Freestyle set up allows higher depower, but cuts a bit of power at the high end. Wakestyle set up allows Slash to have the most power it is able to deliver, but on the other hand there is not as much depower possibility as with the freestyle set up. Once again this feature allows the rider to choose and stay in control. Slash does not have a one pump system in order to get highest p ossible pressure into all struts and leading edge. As we all know, C- kites are usually exposed to many crashes and slams on the water during practice sessions. Having more pressure in every single part of the kite makes it much stronger to absorb the energy of crashing on the water. Slash is all about the C kite feeling, control of power and top freestyle performance.

As with all CrazyFly products, Slash stands for the highest standards of quality, whether it is materials, manufacture, finish quality or design.

Slash comes complete with improved Equip bar II, kite bag, pump, safety leash and a small repair kit.

Bar

crazyfly bar 2011CrazyFly Equip Bar II was carefully developed and designed to be: simple, easy to use, comfortable, safe and of highest quality

Simple and clean design
The designs of every part of the Equip Bar II were kept simple and had to provide the desired effects for maximum performance. This makes the bar very user friendly and simple to use.

Smart Stopper
The stopper can be easily moved along the depower line with one hand using just two fingers. Although it moves easily when pushed with a hand, it does not move an inch if you hit it with the bar. The stopper has a special shape and due to this, it will never slam your fingers between itself and the bar. 

Standard 24m flying lines
All Flying Lines on both 4 line and 5 line Equip bar II are 24 meters long. Therefore all Flying Lines can be easily replaced.
