Designers goals

The Nitro has been an instant hit with the power hungry speed-n-boost crew. Speed, power and control are the cornerstone features for the NEW Nitro design.
Smooth, effortless and constant power with a fast loop that can still generate incredible acceleration. 

Even with all this power and speed, the Nitro is still very responsive and predictable unhooked pushing you through S bends and judges. 
The direct bar response with bar pressure and turning speed options allow you to customize to a setting that suits you. 
The Nitro is a high performance kite custom bred for racing. The highly efficient profile generates amazing speeds while delivering unbeatable upwind performance. Leave your competition struggling in your wash as you dominate upwind. 

The fully balanced kite range gives optimal control over all sizes. 
The best side effect with designing a kite based on speed, power and control is the amazing air time this kite has. With the speed and power to send you skywards and the control to bring you safely back to earth the Nitro is the best jumping kite in our range.

Improvements from the previous version

To improve on this popular model we kept all the power that everyone loved and increased stability for race situations, giving you the ability to adjust the bar pressure and make re-launch effortless. 

A wider, truncated, squared wingtip provides greater leverage for: 
• easy re-launch 
• lower bar pressure 
• faster turning 
• easy re-launch and aerodynamic improvements for higher boost + longer float. 

A fully active slider-bridle with direct rear line connections provides excellent structural support and a wide range of AOA for improved de-power and re-launch. 
The high aspect, 5-strut platform of the original Nitro with a small diameter constant curve leading- edge provides insane upwind efficiency and VMG allowing the Nitro2 to provide serious high octane freestyle excitement and competitive course racing performance.

Is this kite for you?

Like winning races, boosting big or free-riding with your mates? The Nitro is a high performance kite that’s tuned to be easy and safe to control. Novices will enjoy its easy re-launch, stability and depower, while the experts will love pushing the boundaries and taking their riding to the next level.
