Designers goal

JN is proud to present the crest of C-kites in its fourth generation, the famous Prima Donna 4. At such a highly developed stage, little details create the big difference, therefore JN kept an eye on perfection of the well known freestyler. Double seams, long time proven materials, durable Kevlar reinforcements and sophisticated material combinations are the main arguments for JN high end manufacturing. Kiteprofiles, individually adapted to the respective wind speed are making each kite size unique and ideal for its intention.
The JN developed floating batten system FTB allows the profile to adaptitself to present winds. Gusts or instantly picking up winds are beingbalanced by the FBT system that allows to adjust the profile and as aresult extends the wind range of each size. The perfect round arc shape reduces performance inhibiting air turbulences, which lead to optimized and
dynamic flying characteristic.
