Kite

Freestyle performance kite with 5 lines

Designers goals (manufacturer text)

Designed with input from future World Champion Christophe Tack, the HiFi-X2 is the kite of choice for the planet’s most demanding freestyle and competitive riders. Whether you’re into new school technical tricks, massive kiteloops, or old school freestyle, this five-line, true C-kite is engineered to help you evolve and perform like never before.

Last year’s HiFi was so good that Tack didn’t want to change much to the 2015 model. However, the HiFi-X2 features a number of subtle refinements, such as a symmetrical panel layout for extended longevity and uniform stretch. Addition- ally, this legendary kite uses less Dacron material, which means less weight, better durability, faster flying, and a slightly crisper feel. Overall you can expect the same high-caliber performance as before: explosive pop, controllable slack, light bar pressure, and a direct, precise C-kite feel.

Flying at the center edge of the wind window, the HiFi-X2 features adjustable trailing edge connections for custom turning speed and bar impulse/feedback. Featuring Liquid Force Bomb-Proof Construction, durability will never be an issue, as the kite is engineered to take a beating as you learn new tricks.

With the HiFi-X2, ride like a champion.

Its a really awesome kite!!! it gives you an extreme pop for jumping and trying tricks.
The only negative point I found is that is really difficult to relaunch it from water without taking the board off(I ride with boots).
