Kite

Allround kite for women

Designers goals (manufacturer text)

The Alana is designed for women riders looking for an all-around kite with freeriding, freestyle and wave riding versatility.
Based on the Park design, the Alana features a Swept Compact C outline and three-strut shape for stability, responsive steering, maximum depower and easy water relaunch.
The Alana’s profile is the same as the Park for consistent pull over a wide range of wind speeds.  It also features a Static Bridle Platform for forward flying, acceleration out of turns, stability, instant response and direct bar feel.
The Alana is the ideal kite for women that demand performance in a wide range of conditions.

Features

  • Static Bridle Platform = Improves forward flying & acceleration out of turns + direct bar feel
  • Reduced Diameter Struts = Improves low-end power & handling + lightweight
  • Responsive handling
  • Easy water relaunch
  • Unmatched versatility
