Kite

Allround 4line kite

Designers Goals

The SP-X will exceed even your highest expectations for a modern kite. No matter if you´re into new school, hangtime, wave or freeriding is perfect for this kite. The SP-X is the all terrain kite on the market. The kite's blindingly easy handling and its amazingly bar pressure ensure long lasting and relaxing sessions. The SP-X has got an incredibly powerful lift, which will take your jumps to a new level. The SP-X's huge depower, which is very linear and even over the whole depower way, provides an unbeaten windrange. With its foolproof water re-launch you feel so safe that you'll begin to try out maneuvers and tricks you have never dreamed of before. Everybody talks about C-Kite-bar-feeling. The SP-X has definitely got it, but it´s way easier to ride than a "classical C" and you need far less physical strength energy of your body. The kite provides a very precise response and you know its position in the wind window any time even without looking at it. Only the very best materials of the whole market have been chosen for the kite's construction: The canopy is made of Teijin Ripstop and we have reinforced the kite with Kevlar patches at the most stressed parts of the kite, but we have always kept an eye on the weight of the kite. Only very light kites are agile and quick. Spleene´s very well working one point inflation system ensures quick setup times. Come and test the new feeling of the Spleene SP-X!!! 

Bar

spleene xbar 2011The X-Bar comes with a four line setup incl. bypass leash and has all features of a modern bar system. Unhooked riding is so easy as well as hooked in freeriding. The safety release works with a push out Quickrelease. The depower rope is covered with a PU-tube which creates very little friction, thus maintaining smooth depower action even when the bar is fully lock during extreme steering manoeuvres. The bar-ends are equipped with width adjustable Multiwinders so that one bar is suitable for all kite sizes. The X-19 is using the X-Bar, too. Then you only have to switch the bypass line incomparsion to the SP-X kite. The floaters on each side protect the complete bar system from diving. The enclosed safety leash has an internal bungee line that doesn´t allow the leash to dangle around your body, but it´s long enough for unlimited unhooked tricks. Each kiteboarder loves his own bar settings for sure. We recommend to use the inner attachment points at the winders only for the 7m SP-X kite. All other sizes are working perfectly with the outside position.

Great kite, easy relaunching, direct and extremely fast, stable in gusts, a joy to loop.

Great for earning tricks, the kite can take a beating.

In waves it has amazing downwind flying abilities
