Kite

4 line 3 strut kite for strong winds, big jumps and speed

Designers goals

The 2012 Chimera is a new of the Argo and Griffin Kite. Less struts than the griffin, higher aspect for stronger winds and higher jumps and speed, simple 3 point mini bridle, direct back line connection, pulley less or pulley option. The first kite designed with a hot swap pulley or no pulley bridle.

Features

Auto Relaunch
The leading edge has been curved to allow the kite to easily turn onto its side for easy auto relaunch. Students and beginners progress many times faster because the kite will often turn on its side and wait in the edge of the wind window unpowered ready for the rider to relaunch the kite.

Super Stability
The Chimera has excellent stability with the medium/higher aspect and is easier to control in all wind conditions with much less chance of overflying the kite above your head or the kite falling from the sky.

Massive depower
The bridle has been designed to give excellent depower along with the thinner aspect of the kite makes the kite great for stronger winds. The Chimera is also excellent for free riding and surf because it sits in the wind window when going down the line.
