Rider Profile

Freeride, big air & race

Designer goals

ACTION PACKED FREE RIDE, BOOSTING TO THE MOON, AIR STYLE, SPEED, HYDROFOIL OR TWIN-TIP RACING - THE EDGE V9 DELIVERS HIGH PERFORMANCE THAT IS INCREDIBLY ADDICTIVE.

The Edge has a unique pedigree, well known to pack a serious punch! The latest version takes it to the next level - an explosive high adrenaline freeride machine that will leave you in withdrawal after every session. True addiction comes naturally with the Edge V9, the heavy hitter with an honest high!

The design brief for the ninth version of Edge was to radically improve free ride and big air potential, while maintaining its multiple World Championship winning speed and race performance. 

We have completely re-worked the bar feeling, with the balance between front and rear line pressure optimised for feeling and improved pitch control. Riding the Edge V9 you can easily sense where the kite is at any time, the entire bar throw range offers a progressive feedback feel making it turn faster and easier to time the take off for going massive.

Continuous curve struts means we have higher levels of control over sail tension and reduced sail luff through the angle of attack range, giving a smoother ride with less bar bounce. The airfoil section has also been slightly modified for increased hang time, a small refinement but very noticeable in the air. The re-shaped wing tip section combined with re-positioned bridle attachment points increases drive in the turn and enhances load distribution for the leading edge. This directly translates to all-round high performance given any style of riding, all while going fast! 

On any type of race or speed course the Edge V9 has a serious performance advantage – warp speed riding at amazing angles will have you clear ahead of the competition. Our unique low-drag pulley-less bridle system using high performance Kevlar line is 50% thinner than our standard bridle line, resulting in a vast reduction in parasitic drag increasing acceleration and range. Combined with the Race Control System and Race Flying Lines the Edge V9 truly is the leading performance LEI package.

On the SNOW! Yes that’s right, the Edge V9 is possibly the best inflatable kite in existence for taking advantage of the cold white stuff. Its got speed, power, and the best attribute is how easily you can get air - all you have to do is gain speed, edge hard and send it!
