Kite

An all-terrain freeride kite for riders of any level who are looking for stability and control.

Designers Goals

The 2010 Cult has a few improvements from the 2009 model. It has more power and the turningspeed is higher. The Sigma shape allows it to depower completely which gives the Cult a huge wind-range. Compared to the 2009 version the bridle system was made simpler.

Conclusion

The 9m 2010 Cult is a dependable and predictable freeride kite. It does not generate a lot of boost or pop giving room for user error. It can be used as an easy freeride kite, a beginner kite or a kids kite (7m) because the way the power builds up is very predictable.

I own the 9m and 12m. The best kites I have had so far. Very stable, hardly ever touch the water. Fairly light bar pressure with plenty of grunt.
