Designers goals (manufacturer text)

The QX-II is the new Freeride Kite from Spleene. With its enormous power, the Kite offers you the full bandwidth of Freeride Kiteboarding, mixed with maximum control and comfort.

– Very good upwind performance
– Quick “get going”
– Huge wind range
– Easy jumping
– Great hangtime
– Dead-easy relaunch
– Low bar pressure

The QX-II has everything, you can expect from a good Freeride Kite. The QX-II is your companion for your greatest Kitesurf days and lifts you quickly to the next level.

On Freeride, easy handling is very important. Good power, simple to access, lets you focus on your Kitesurfing experience. Riding and jumping are the desires – and that is what the QX-II is made for. Already in low wind conditions, the good pull of the Kite lifts you easily on your board. This power is also the source for your easy, high and long jumps. The lift comes in softly and keeps you up in the air for a long time. For landing, the QX-II will let you touch the water smoothly and directly ride on.

The power of the QX-II is the top league. But it is not a dump pulling machine, the Kite delivers its power very precisely. Through its easy handling, the Kite invites you all the time to try something new. The playful characteristics come from its great control. Even in heavy wind conditions, you can rely on your QX-II, while others have to head towards the beach.

Additionally, the QX-II has an outstanding good comfort, a key element of a good Freeride Kite. Even after several hours on the water, you won’t get “heavy arms”. Low bar pressure, mixed with a very good depower behavior lets you ride long and far, even if the wind is really challenging and gusty. And surely the QX-II will be very easy to relaunch if it dropped on the water.

Many newly developed construction details and the highly improved quality of many materials “made in Germany” make the QX-II Kite the perfect buddy for your next Kite-trip. The sizes 15.5m and 17.7m are built as light versions, with extra power in low winds and very suitable for heavier riders.

Comments:
This kite has an very large windrange. I can ride it from 9/10 knots up to 20 knots. The depower works really well and you feel the difference, if you use the adjuster.

Jumping is very easy and hangtime is very long. Typical Delta-Kite. The boost is not like a C-Shape Kite, but the turning speed is really not bad for such a big Kite (17,7m).

All together, a very good offer for a nice price.
