Comments:
The New 2012 Slash Kite is Crazyfly's freestyle kite. It is easy to use while providing very high performance. With huge on the bar depower, every rider will feel comfortable on this kite. Slash is a five line and five strut kite with C-shape feeling - Ideal for any new-school rider.

Despite having a C-Shape feeling the kite has capabilities of 'bow' kite. For example: Super easy relauch, handles gusts very well, good upwind performance.

I personally use my Slash Kite in a a variety of conditions, from waves to flat water. I spent 5 months in Western Australia, using this kite helped improved my freestyle riding. I also use the Slash in the United Kingdom, as you can imagine, gusty winds are frequent so having a stable kite is a must.

I would highly recommend this kite to intimidate riders that are looking for a kite that gives a lot of pop, fast turning and power through the turn while being very stable and easy to relaunch.
