Aggressive freestyle and progressive wake C-kite

Designers Goals

The 2013 Fuel packs 12 years of blood, sweat and innovation into one explosive and truly legendary kite. Built on the industry’s most proven and timeless design platform, the Fuel is an icon —the highest-performance C-kite on the planet. 

Year after year, the Fuel is the expert rider’s choice for aggressive freestyle and progressive wake. This year’s lineup delivers extraordinary power, rock solid stability and incredible mega looping. This powerhouse carries over the standout features of its predecessor: bomber Slingshot construction, Splitstrut integrated strut design, patented One Pump inflation and Custom Fuel Injection. 

The Fuel demands a balls to the wall riding style. It’s been developed and refined with input from leading riders like megaloop king Ruben Lenten, Lewis Crathern, Eric Rienstra and every other hardcore rider around the world.
