Kite

5 strut C-feel SLE kite

Designers Goals

The kite with the narrowest LE arc in Royal’s collection received some updates for 2012 that made it to be quicker turning and more responsive.
These changes allowed us to add a really fast 14m to the lines. We love the Solo for everything involving un-hooked riding and an aggressive style of riding.  

Features

  • Pulley Free
  • C-kite feel
  • 5 struts

Very good allrounder. Not the biggest wind range range but great for unhooked tricks!

Realy good price/quality, Nice graphics.
The bar is well done, good grip, good depower, confortable and easy to use.
I´ve choose this kite because its very responsive,its a bridled C shape with a bow depower,very safe and well made for its price. Explosive freestyle and realy nice surfing waves.
Highly recomended!
