Allround 3 strut SLE kite

Designers goals (manufacturer text)

Since the very first version of the ERA in 2007 we have worked to simplify things and accommodate most riders needs. The 2013 XTERA represents our best result in this initiative. As a blend between the ERA and SOLO the XTERA is the easiest and funnest kite to ride that we have ever made. It is simple, compact, light but well reinforced, affordable and extremely adaptable to most styles of riding.

We like to think of the XTERA as a sort of reliable and trusted source of power that gets you in the water any day and in any conditions, giving you the opportunity to switch your boards according to the conditions and to get the most out of each day regardless if it means taking out your twin tip to try some new tricks, going for a strapless session on your MANTA, getting into some serious surf with the PIVOT, or simply owning the sea in 8 knots of wind with the 15m XTERA and the RAVE.

We have been promised kites that do it all for years and finally I found a kite that lives up to this! Great for high jumps. Great unhooked. Great for waves.
