Kite

Bridled C freestyle kite

Designers goals (manufacturer text)

We’re proud to introduce Blade’s new freestyle machine. This action packed C-kite has some serious grunt to propel you to new heights and help take your riding to new levels. At the essence of the design are the Sharp Contoured Wingtips, which effectively minimize the bridle system, making the kite very reactive to user input, but highly stable and forgiving to unwanted forces. Another great combo feature for freestyle and wakestyle riders alike is the ability to give explosive pop, but also continuous pull throughout the trick. This helps with stabilizing yourself throughout the trick and more importantly to offer a controlled and smooth landing.

Features

  • Explosive and consistently powerful
  • 5 rigid struts for added stability and control
  • Designed for high-end performance in all conditions
  • Solid construction to withstand extreme crashes
  • Bridle reduction wingtips for direct steering
