All terrain inflatable kite, excels in speed

Designers goals

The HYDRA v5 remains an unorthodox design for the rider who wants more than the average cookie-cutter kite can deliver. It offers top-quality construction, huge wind range ability, security and performance for almost all styles of riding.

The v5’s unusual design gives it the ability to Freeride, Oldschool style, wave ride, course race and speed, on water, earth or snow. The HYDRA v5 distinguishes itself by its performance and safety.
The HYDRA v5 is very accessible, manageable and responsive. It is an excellent kite for waves (particularly in offshore winds); its stability and its wide range of progressive depower allows great control over the kite in the surf. Resuming the bottom end power needed to enjoy your wave session is immediate.

Of course, the HYDRA v5 excels in speed, as it holds the most world speed records. Able to absorb or deliver the full power of the wind in any condition due to its unique SPSbridle system has undoubtedly contributed to its success in this discipline.
For free riding, its huge wind range gives a totally secure and comfortable ride even in very strong and irregular wind due to its true 100% depower. The HYDRA v5 is very effective and covers almost the same wind range as 2 conventional kites combined. The HYDRA v5 has an incredible lifting power and will satisfy lovers of massive hang time.

It is a kite also popular in snowkiting and mountainboarding due to its ability to launch in any position. The HYDRA v5 can even be “hot” relaunched in the power zone -- but don’t even think about trying that with any other kite!
