Freeride 5 strut bow kite

Designer goals

The Crossbow, now in its 7th edition sits at the top of the list as being the most efficient kite in our range. Its improved light wind performance can be attributed in part to its new lighter weight design. We’ve reduced the number of struts and have distributed the Dacron sparingly and more efficiently. Thus earning its new designation as the Crossbow LW (Light Weight). The Crossbow’s bow kite design is another factor in providing a wide wind range and light wind performance. The bow kite design allows us to produce a high aspect kite with a flatter arc which delivers more power per square meter than a non bow kite. This power is easily controlled by our trademark Depower on Demand. this allows the rider to precisely control the power of the kite. Whether you are serious about racing or serious about having as much fun as possible in extremely light winds, the Crossbow LW delivers.


  • Light Weight 5 strut design
  • Amazing lift and hangtime
  • Excellent upwind ability
  • Largest wind range
  • Variable tuning options
  • Quicklink IDS equipped
  • Sprint
