Designers goals (manufacturer text)

THE SUMMIT CONTINUES TO DEFINE HIGH PERFORMANCE AND VERSATILITY FOR DEDICATED SNOWKITE RIDERS WHO ARE LOOKING FOR HIGH SPEED MOUNTAIN CLIMBING OR BLASTING THROUGH THE POWDER WITH A FAST TURNING KITE. THE FOURTH VERSION HAS DIRECTLY BENEFITED FROM OUR R1 V2 RACE DEVELOPMENT KNOWLEDGE, ALLOWING US TO IMPROVE PERFORMANCE, HANDLING AND STABILITY.

The Summit V4 is perfect for progressive riders – it will allow the adventurous to push the boundaries of the snowy backcountry. The V4 has so much potential due to its amazing power generation in light winds but also big de-power in strong winds. Combine that with fast direct handling and you have the ultimate open foil Snowkite.

Each aspect of the V4 has been calculated using the latest development techniques to produce a kite that pushes the limit of design. With our new software and our years of experience we have put together a unique combination of aspect ratio, cell width, profile and sail tension.

The Summit V4 now boasts the same internal load distribution technology as the R1 V2. The new diagonal ribs and internal straps connect to each other creating a structural frame, which reduces load going into the upper and lower surfaces. This new technology brings further gains in stability and handling to the V4.

The airfoil section has also been recalculated and smoothed to improve the kites speed and feeling. New flexible lightweight plastic battens are precisely positioned at each Leading Edge cell opening - the battens enhance structure of the openings, this means quicker and easier inflation.

The Summit V4 is available as a Kite Only option that comes with the lightweight Kompressor Bag, or Kite Complete with the Contact-Snow Control System and technical mountain Backpack. We recommend adding the Kompressor Bag to the kite complete option to keep your kite packed and secured as small as possible.
