Freeride SLE C-shaped Hybrid kite

Designers goals

Introducing the 2011 Spitfire, our latest SLE C-shaped hybrid. The 2011 Spitfire blends our two kite platforms for 2010 into one well balanced, high performance wing that delivers super stable "no way this thing's falling out of the sky" flying characteristics merged with fast turning and across the window flying speed. In terms of construction, the 2011 Spitfire continues in the legacy of Caution's bullet proof design, with some additional features to increase performance and durability. Check out the 2011 Spitfire, the flame continues strong.

Features;

  • The 2011 Spitfire features our new Tapered Strut Tips which offer a cleaner airodynamic release from the trailing edge, and reduced material. The trailing edge is reinforced with non-stretch "dacron" to maintain leach tension while giving the kites added durability and longevity.
  • The single inflation system makes inflation quick and reliable, featuring two-ply extra-wide distribution hoses, optimized for UV and wear-proof durability, pvc valve collars for durability and valve stability.
  • The Spitfire uses quad gusset reinforcements at key load seems in the leading edge, using the highest quality dacron.

Bar 

caution kite bar 2011The 2011 Control Bar delivers the perfect balance between function, performance and durability. This one size fits all bar offers adjustable length bar ends, an adjustable length spectra trim line with an on the fly stopper ball, and our proven spring tensioned quick release. The 2011 bar features a redesigned depower system which reroutes the safety line through the center of the quick release to offer cleaner operation with a simple and functional integration of the quick release and safety system. The quick release doubles as a swivel, so that riders can untwist the center lines from below the bar instead of relying on an out of reach swivel above the power strap. The 2011 bar features a stainless insert to reduce friction and our above the bar power adjustment strap allows reliable and easy on the fly adjustments to the kites power range. With an adjustable throw length, riders with shorter arms can keep the power strap and full sheeting range within a comfortable distance.
