 SLE 5 strut freestyle kite

Designers goals

50Fifty is our new freestyle kite in the line. It comes as a replacement for a highly appreciated NHP kite, and is even more freestyle & new school focused than its predecessor. The construction is a hybrid C kite featuring advantages of both C-shape and bow types. 50Fifty features new super fast, thin profile designed especially for freestyle. In the middle of the kite you will find the floating strut. Not only it's lightweight, but also absorbs the vibrations caused by sudden gusts of wind and eliminates fluttering of the kite. Additionally, side struts were redesigned. Thanks to aerodynamics – based innovations, the kite is fast (less drag), quickly loose it's power when necessary (you'll appreciate this feature while performing new school tricks) and features excellent depower. Large surface kite wing tips improve kite's agility and secure accurate (not too much) bar pressure.

50Fifty is a powerful kite, that replies with excellent lift and POP combined with constant power while performing tricks. Impressive speed, nice pull during the whole turning process, stability, direct feeling, great unhooked performance and easy relaunch make it the kite of choice for all freestyle and new school riders, like Mike „The Knife” Blomvall.

De kite is erg stabiel en doet precies wat je hem vraagt. De pop die krijgt uit deze kite is super en je weet precies wat de kite gaat doen.
