The 4 line bridle in combination with JN´s C-cut concept is engineered to fit the needs of sportive freeriders with the intention to both, waves and freestyle. The Wild Thing 3 is the absolute fun machine to hit what ever size wave or simply fly over it by slightly sending the kite. The lift is enormous, but accessible, while predictable.

The new Switchcraft 2 is an allround bar. It is suitable for all typesof kites thanks to the various possibilities to attach the safety line with its sophisticated leading through the system and a removable / upgradeable fifth line. With its revolutionary maximum safety Quickrelease, comfortable 3D grip and patented turnable bar horns, JN Switchcraft fits all riders’ needs. The special turnable bar horns, realize the adjustment of 4 different bar sizes. What makes the bar very comfortable during unhooked moves is the aluminium-coated ovalthat clicks into the bar hole. So the chickenloop is always perfectlypositioned to hook back in. The sophisticated setup of the 5th lineprovides excellent safety standards at all times and setups and prevents the safety from twisting after kite loops or rotations.
