Rider Profile

Light wind riders

Designers goals (manufacturer text)

The 2018 Cruze is a dedicated light wind kite in our range coming only in 15 and 17m sizes. With a Flat-Delta shape, deep profile, and high aspect ratio, the Cruze generates a lot of power even in marginal wind conditions.

For 2018, we have re-worked the Cruze, fine-tuned the shape and bridle and exploited new possibilities of producing kites in our own factory in Europe. Despite its larger size, the Cruze maintains the agility of a smaller kite thanks to its shape and sturdy construction. The squared wingtips ensure stability as well as quick and precise turning for a kite of this size. To maximize performance in the lightest sea breezes, we stripped down weight wherever possible without sacrificing the rigidity of the kite. Simple bridle and rock solid construction result in a very user-friendly light bar feel.

Brand new and exclusive to CrazyFly, we introduced Triplex, the most advanced ripstop material on the market. Triplex has by far the best strength to weight ratio and with triple coating its durability is unmatched. The coating protects the fabric from UV rays, salt and abrasive objects, such as sand. Triple coating and three ripstop yarns ensure the lowest possible elongation and deterioration of the material till date.

We re-worked the construction and again pushed the limits of strength, rigidity, and weight of the kite. With Strategic Dacron placement and Tailored Canopy, we created the most compact kite and the resulting performance is breathtaking.
