5 strut high performance SLE kite

Designers goals

aggressive. precise. technical.
Advanced riders pushing their physical and mental ability, laying down movement with pristine technical precision - the Prime Type 152 is designed for you. If you aim for your personal best every time the wind
blows and define your presence on the water as harder, better, faster, stronger, the Prime is your ideal platform for exponential progression.
No compromises, the Prime is about delivering a high-end technical performance. Fast through the window and very direct, you can put the Prime exactly where you want it when you want it. The wingtip-axis
turns are very quick and generate steady power, the newly developed tip shape contributing to the Prime’s smooth power delivery both hooked and unhooked. Up in the air it’s a wide open playground with huge pop and scalable hangtime at your command.
The Prime’s high-end performance is characteristically hardcore Freestyle/New School, but if you are of intermediate to advanced skill and are aggressive, precise, and technical in nature, the Prime will put progression in your every move, every session, any style.

Features

• progressive C-kite Geometry

The Blade Prime 7 is a fast-steering, explosive kite. For me, it worked really wel in the waves, it's what you make of it. The kite invites you to get everything out of yourself, with a vivid reaction on your steering. In the waves, strapless surfboard, or on flat water with a twintip, the Prime tries to let you push your own limits.

Just to say you have listed this kite as a FREERIDE / new school kite, when its a clearly a FREESTYLE kite. (It might confuse noob's).

P.S. I have the 9m and its awesome !

Good comment, although I think it's more than just a clear Freestyle kite. No beginner wants an explosive kite, but for some wave-oriented and pure freeride intermediate, this could be a perfect kite!
