Rider Profile

The Radar is for starters & riders who want a easy to use, crossover kite with incredible relaunch capabilities.

Designers goals

The Radar is a versatile and lively free ride / crossover kite. Its design is a rare blend of function and versatility with an excellent ability to take your riding to the next level. The high sweep and low aspect ratio make it light and maneuverable, while remaining well balanced with a big sweet spot on the sheeting. Any input given to the control system translates into immediate response from the kite. A simple bridle and thinned profiles keep the power in check, while providing all the park and ride power you’ll need. The Radar is a full bodied, swept wing kite, meaning you will not find an easier kite to relaunch. The generously curved leading edge makes the kite roll into the relaunch position with very little input from the rider. It fits cleanly into our range as a kite that will do just about anything!

Features & Benefits:

  • Amazing relaunch
  • Light bar pressure
  • Great all-around kite
  • Ultra responsive and easy to turn
  • Consistent and stable pull
  • Easy to progress

I am used to drive switchblades. I chose for a radar as i could get a good offer. I am not dissapointed at all - eventhough all my other kites are switchblades. The kite is fast steering. It gives you a good boost to jump high. Biggest difference i could notice is that the radar drops you down faster. Hang time and landing with switchblades is longer en more smoothly. Its truly very easy to relaunch kite. Wind range i used it was between 26 and 40 knots. So any pretty big windrange. However with my 25 kg it start to be fun from 30 knuts.
