Dedicated wave riders 

Designers goals (manufacturer text)

Following our pursuit of the perfect wave-riding kite we made the Noise, Noise Pro, and theTDZ, then there was the BWS Aeneema. Now following in that pursuit of the ultimate wave riding machine is the BWSurf AE2 Kitesurfing Kite.  Æ2 One step beyond. 

After the Æneema’s success, expectations were high to create a better and more advanced wave kite. And although we (and so many kiters around the world) love the Æneema, we still felt that there was much room for improvement.

We wanted to create a wave kite that turns super fast but at the same time keeps the best
elements of our early BWSurf Noise models, primarily drift and stability. With the Æ2 we can proudly say we’ve succeeded in this mission. The Æ2 is a complete re-design with a
smoother profile and faster turning achieved in part through altering arc shapes through each size. The response to the wave and drift is far greater than any other kite we have made or flown. A tricky combination to achieve but one that delivers a far more user-friendly performance to the rider and will make riding in waves (or landing freestyle tricks) smoother and more achievable for all levels of rider.

Each size of BWSurf AE2 Kitesurfing Kite has been specifically designed for its purpose and wind range (no up or downscaling). The Leading Edges in bigger sizes are lighter and thinner but still hold enough volume for a rigid frame and fast relaunch. Additionally, each kite size has its own specific bridling frame for best performance.

The Æ2 is an incredibly high performance and complete wave kite for ALL conditions and ALL levels.

BWSurf Blue Chip Bar

The BWSurf Blue Chip Bar is a completely refreshed approach to the kite control system. The Blue Chip bar offers a whole new dimension of comfort and control, featuring a back line kite trimming system to replace the previous front-line trimming system, a single body injection-molded structure that offers enhanced safety, improved ergonomics and greater accuracy for trimming the kite.

The Blue Chip dial to trim system adjusts the length of the back lines relative to the front lines, in order to adjust the kite power to wind conditions and rider preference. The Blue Chip bar features an ergonomically placed power and depower dial. Simply twist the dial to power up, and nudge it outward to depower. This allows you to keep the bar in both hands when depowering.

The winding mechanism a minimum of moving parts and is easy to inspect and maintain. The U-shaped bar structure is optimized to flush away any sand and debris buildup.
