Two characters. One kite.

Meet the state-of-the-art Nexus. An athletic kite that is never too cool to learn a new trick. Whether it's on your favorite surfboard or twin tip, the Nexus brings incredible versatility to wave and freestyle riding. 

Amazing things happened when we spliced the genes of the GTS4 and Section 2 into the Nexus. Take for example the Nexus’ CIT, the fancy acronym behind the kite’s adjustable handling modes. It lets you finetune the kite’s power and turn radius. The wave mode makes it turn faster, increases depower and doesn’t pull you off your strapless board. It also provides more lift when you pull on the bar making foot changes a snap. The freestyle mode increases your turn radius, stabilizes the kite for easier freestyle moves, and provides a little extra grunt. The Nexus comes out of the bag in all-around mode which provides excellent depower, grunt, and hangtime.

Nexus. Ride like the superstar you are meant to be.

Tested the Nexus on a strapless surfboard. Around 16-22 knots with small size waves. We tested the Nexus next to the Section and the Nexus turns a bit faster, creates a bite wider wind window and still has a great drift. In the waves, the Nexus feels a bit faster, a bit more explosive as the section. Personally, I like the wider, rounder always pressure turns of the section. If you like a kite that turns on a dime the Nexus could be a great choice. Can't wait to test the Nexus in its high end because there 's in its territory of Mr. S Akkersdijk. The KiteLoop artist I'm not going to copy (anymore:)
