SLE (bridles) c-shaped newschool/freeride kite

Designers goals

  • Explosive jumping power
  • Maximum hangtime
  • Cuben Fiber Leading Edge
  • Twister Techtm tuned steering response
  • Outstanding aerodynamic efficiency

The HP v3 design improves upon all previous incarnations. Advancements in canopy shaping and a revised bridle design have allowed us to enhance stability and unhooked performance while removing all canopy battens. New material choices and aerodynamic refinements mean that when you pull the trigger, the HP v3 will rip you off the water with explosive vertical lift and keep you airborne with a hangtime sensation that is simply unique.

With our exclusive Cuben-equipped leading edge, the HP v3 delivers outstanding aerodynamic efficiency. A reduced diameter Cuben leading edge minimizes drag, giving increased lift and hangtime, faster flying and greater upwind ability. Cuben fiber’s unique Zero-stretch characteristics allow us to create a kite with a thinner and stiffer leading edge, providing a previously impossible mix of performance and stability.

With Twister Techtmintegrated into the HP v3, you can use m ore of the canopy to generate effective turning force. Twister Techtm delivers faster turn initiation and tighter turning with reduced bar pressure, maximizing responsiveness and usability in low wind conditions and serving up insane freestyle potential when ridden overpowered.

The HP v3 benefits from our latest external EZ-Pump design, new-needle construction, Air-Aid Materials, hidden bridle patches, Cuben fibre and Twister Tech. It’s the most advanced HP we’ve made to date and it defies easy categorization.

Nemesis HPv3: Surface to air missile


best kitebarThe Red-Line Performance bar uses our new moulded, push to release QR with integrated swivel. With only one moving part and no complex internal mechanical parts the ‘Click-it QR’ is easy to reassemble and designed to work consistently with a positive release action even under several hundred kilograms of load.
With an integral swivel sitting on top of the chickenloop assembly untwisting your lines and swapping between hooked-in and unhooked riding just got a whole lot easier. This is the perfect bar for riders of all levels who demand the most reliable and predictable safety system but still need all the features our previous bars have had to offer.

One bar for all kites, the Standard has been set.

Great freestyle kite for me, like the price quality of Best kiteboarding. This HP is my ticket to pass. Tried different C-kites but this unbridled 5 line C-shaped kite worked best for me. Good and easy pop. Little bit backstall but tune the kite and you got a great trickster of a kite!

What are you talking about 5 lines ? it has 4 lines and it isn't a C kite but a Hybrid with pulleys. Also 11 to 18 knots on the 10m... you are missing out on this kite as it like to be well lit 20 knots to 30 knots is wher it will shine.

Have you tried the Nemesis or GP ???
