Kite

4 Strut "all in one" SLE kite

Designers goals

The new Reflex design is focussed on versatility and control - a very predictable “one for all kite” to ride in all locations and conditions. The optimal weight/rigidity ratio is achieved due to its 4 strut design. Its hybrid C shape and moderate
aspect ratio offer direct bar pressure and unmatched stability.
The Reflex design is hybrid in nature but “C” at heart. The idea is to provide a direct bar feel which brings precision piloting and ensures easy progress. You know at all times where the kite is in the air without looking at it, and its direct steering
allows you to manouever it to precisely where you want at all times.
The Reflex offers a fluid ride, makes upwind riding easy and supports a large wind range. The specific location of the 4 struts on the Reflex offers optimal efficiency, the strut-less central section increases power for fast planning and good lift when jumping and excellent low end grunt.
The Reflex provides excellent pop for wakestyle due to its specialist shape and power generation is optimised due to its swept-back profile. Unhooked riding and new school moves become easy as the kite flies effortlessly without trimming.
The tip design creates an exceptionally reactive kite with unmatched turning ability, perfect for wave riding. Its ease of use will give you confidence to push your limits. The new Reflex construction gives this kite the best chance of surviving in demanding conditions. It is reinforced at all critical wear & tear points and has a single inflation system for added simplicity.

An awesome kite, the perfect all-rounder. Currently flying a 9m and its a dream. Easy one pump setup and bar and lines setup takes seconds. Very stable and predictable in flight with huge power for increase hang time for all your freestyle tricks. Great wind range and manages to get flying with very minimal wind. Bar system is one on the best and simplest systems ive used and the over kite build is superb. Colourways look sick as well. Takoon have got it spot on with this new Reflex, the perfect 1 kite quiver. Definitely recommend it to any rider from kite landboarding and buggying to kitesurfing wave riding or freestyle, the Reflex does everything in style.
