Kite

Performance 5 line C-kite for freestyle

Designer goals (manufacturer text)

The Torch is designed for freestyle riders who demand a state-of-the-art, fast flying C-kite with precision response for hooked in and unhooked riding.
Weight was reduced on the 2014 Torch by implementing reduced diameter struts, which increases the low-end power and improves handling.  Power is delivered smoothly on the Torch, while the depower is similar to that of a bridled kite due to its ability to fly fast through the air.
The Torch is the nr. 1 kite of choice for dedicated freestyle and unhooked wave riders.

Key Features

  • New Reduced Diameter Struts = Improves low-end power & handling + lightweight
  • Precision response for hooked in and unhooked riding
  • Direct bar feel
  • Solid power through the turns
  • Superior unhooked control

Comments:
Excellent build quality and the shift bar system is very clean and straightforward. I'm just learning unhooked freestyle and this kite has really helped me. Really good for boosting and looping too!
