Designers goals (manufacturer text)

INNOVATION IS OFTEN INSPIRED BY BEING IN THE RIGHT PLACE, AT THE RIGHT TIME, WITH ALL THE RIGHT CONNECTIONS COMING TOGETHER ALLOWING THE GENESIS OF A NEW VISION OR ERA. THE HYPERLINK IS OUR VISION TO TAKE YOU INTO THAT NEW ERA.

The design brief was outrageous - develop a kite to bridge the gap between inflatable and foil kites while making it excel on water, snow and land. The Hyperlink is a true multipurpose foil kite, it brings together the performance of a foil with the feeling of an inflatable. One kite to cover almost every aspect of Kiting! Free ride, hydrofoil, boost and float, air style or unhooked, backcountry snow missions, you name it and it delivers.

The Hyperlink is unique, it’s the first foil kite to be as dynamic and fun to ride as a performance inflatable. With an unparalleled level of stability, handling and bar feeling the Hyperlink takes it to the next level.
With an innovative valve design it can be ridden on the water, snow and land safely, as a Closed Cell or Open Cell kite.
We know many inflatable kite riders can see the advantages of high performance foil kites such as the Chrono or R1, however the bridle lines and complexity can be daunting. The Hyperlink is simple and user friendly, the mid aspect ratio and minimal bridle plan makes taking the jump from inflatable to foil kite easy!
No matter how hard-core inflatable you are, now is the time to expand your universe. Take that step into the unknown - the reward is more adrenaline, more riding time and a new feeling!

Tested the 9 and 12m hyperlink. The 12m is a bit slower because of it's size and has a wider turning circle. For real steep mountains, a bit too wide, the Ozone Blizzard (Sub Zero) would be a better option. But, this Blizzard (sub zero) is only a land kite. The hyperlink is a really crossover wing. Foil kite that's relaunchable from the water (2 options with a zipper). Tried both options, inflation was a bit faster if you use the open cell option. Closed cell option the Blizzard had a bit more solid feel. Can't wait to test the 12m in light winds and a hydrofoil.

Had a great first session with the 9m Hyperlink. Fresh powder and steep mountains. The wind was gusty but no problem. The Hyperlink was stable, good feedback and easy to fly. We tested the Hyperlink next to the Blizzard (Sub Zero) and the Blizzard is the real snowkite, because of the 5th line safety and faster turning. If the steep mountains are not your thing. The Hyperlink is a great option for crossover land kiting. Can't wait to test the Hyperlink on the hydrofoil.
