Kite

Ultra light design race/freeride kite

Designers goals

The Dyno stretches the boundaries of what was thought to be possible in a light wind inflatable kite. Utilizing the highest quality lightweight fabrics the Dyno’s specialized construction allows it to fly in super light wind and create more efficient power than a heavier kite of equal size. The Dyno’s optimized canopy profile offers unparalleled upwind performance and superior low-end grunt for steady and predictable parked power that carries you through wind lulls. Besides it’s impressive light wind abilities many of Dyno’s free-ride attributes, like steady bar feel, quick turning and generous depower, also happen to make it the number one choice for our world cup race team. With multiple world championship race titles to its name, the Dyno is clearly a highly competitive course-racing kite, but it is also equally at home free-riding and boosting huge jumps.- Ultra Lightwind Design

This year, Dyno kites has improved bar pressure ( depower closer from the body) and turning speed. This kite has amazing upwind performance and windrange espacially in low wind condition. For me, it is the 2012 racing weapon!!

After looking for a decent detailed review I figured on busting one for those like-minded folks. I live in San Diego and the North Dyno is a necessary part of my arsenal. I own the North 2011 16 meter Dyno and have put 60+ days on the kite. An average day in San Diego it 8-13 knots and for a guy that is 6’3” weighs 220 lbs. the only way I am able to have any fun is with the right gear. I can out ride my buddy who has the 16 meter 2010 rebel and he weighs 180 lbs., 40 lbs. lighter than I am. Ye
