Designers goals

Go vertical! The PEAK3 features everything a passionate freerider’s heart could possibly desire – a highly-efficient and durable Single-Skin concept, simple set up, and easy to fly. Plus it offers power on demand with superb safety. Designed for universal use, it sets the standard for a touring kite. Adventure awaits you.

Single-Skin Concept

The PEAK3 is a foil kite which only needs one top sail to form the wing. This Single-Skin concept draws in kiters with its unique characteristics and ratio of performance per square meter. The high efficiency remains controllable thanks to the PEAK3’s progressive depower and stability. The kite benefits from the wing’s lack of inertia, has far less tendency to overshoot and its reduced weight means it behaves well in gusty wind. When it comes to kiting in the low-end wind range, the PEAK3 definitely sets the standard.

Universal Application

As easy to fly as an entry-level school kite but designed for high-adrenaline adventures. Whether it’s on land or snow, with a kite landboard or a buggy, skis or snowboards, for freeride or teaching purposes, adults or children, beginners or advanced, for urban street kiting or as a traveling companion; the PEAK3 is your ultimate weapon for your daily session.

Unmatched Low-End

Can you fly a kite with nearly no wind? You can with the PEAK3! The kite provides incredible stability and control in the lightest winds. With a 30% reduction of the bridle lines, the PEAK3 produces less drag, letting it achieve its unique low-end. You can even have fun in 3 – 8 knot winds!

Reef Line Safety

The unique, patented Reef Line Safety of the PEAK3 ensures maximum security and all but guarantees the easy reactivation of the kite. The advantage of the Reef Line, compared to a single frontline safety system, is an immediate contraction of the kite’s wing span. This results in a controlled, powerless crash of the kite. In light winds it may occur that some lines fold over a wingtip. The Reef Line Safety is an additional red-colored line included in every PEAK3 package. Please follow the assembly instructions carefully.

Minimal Pack Size

The PEAK3 is built for traveling, trekking and touring. Its Single-Skin concept meets the requirements for snowkiting and landkiting better than any other kite. Take advantage of its featherlight weight and super-small pack sizes. The PEAK3 provides highest safety in the most dangerous situations, supported by the Reef Line Safety and an immediate loss of power, if needed, at any time.

12m Peak3 in 4-6 knots. Stays like a rock up in the air. Even went out for a hydrofoil session. I know you can't relaunch this land kite from the water. Just testing if that was a possibility. And Yes, you could ride in 5-6 knots. This is the 12m kite with the lowest wind range. Other 12m kites will stop at 8/9 knots. The Peak3 12m is much beter than the previous Peak2. More stability, no collapsing or deformations, faster turning. If you talk about power & performance, the Peak3 is like all Peaks very gradual and trustful. Great land kite for playing around with snowkiting or other very light wind landboard activities.

Comments:
Had a skateboard session with the new Flysurfer Peak3 9m on long and short (11m) lines. Can be short! They made the Peak lighter (less bridles), more safe (5 line depower) and more durable (added reinforcements on tips). We use the peak2 in our kiteschool (KiteMobile, Netherlands). For kids to play on a mountainboard or for our students to learn the skill of 4 line kite flying. This kite is great for the method "learn by doing"! Most kids love that method :-) The new 9m is more stable. The leading edge keeps its form better than the peak2, that means more control and a better power feedback. On a skateboard you want a fast turning kite to play around so we shorten the lines to a 11m and it worked. Faster reaction, same stability and on/off power control. So, the 9m has a great usability range. If you have space, 22m if you just have a small tarmac place the 11m works great!!
