Rider Profile

For riders that mix hooked and unhooked freestyle tricks and like to kiteloop

Designer goals (manufacturer text)

The FX implements an upright modified C shape design to get the best performance characteristics of a C shape with the versatility of a hybrid outline. The FX delivers a fast turn in a tight arc which makes it perfect for kite looping.... hooked or unhooked. Its lean entry and profile allows the kite to reach its zenith after a loop to give you a soft and controlled landing.

3 Strut, Modified C shape arc, Box wing tip design, Lean entry profile.

Comments:
Tested the FX in gusty winds. Wasn't ideal for unhooked tricks, but you can feel that the FX builds its power during the flight lines. For example the Switchblade has an on/off bar control (Sheet & Go) The FX power comes mainly from the kite pressure during the flight lines. That makes the FX a bit more technical, you need a good kitefeel to send it in the right direction.
