Designers goals

The  GK SONIC 2011 is a high aspect ratio kite, as the GK TRIX it has full de-power with adjustable
bar pressure
and turning speed. The GK SONIC is a fast flying kite, it can build a huge amount of
power by accelerating across the window,  and fast riding. The windrang is very wide,  in the low
wind range, even  small sized, the GK SONIC  will  quickly generating your own wind by riding fast.
To benefit from this, rider need's  to optimise his flying capability. In the high wind range the kite
having a smaller size and a flatter profile will be easy to hold.

GK  2011 Kite shape, for both GK Trix and GK Sonic is also the result of over 10 years of Kite design. GK 2011 kites will keep there profile and overall shape, some details will be changed to refine performance and adjustability.

GK bar 2011The GK ‘Click-n-Go’ bar is vastly improved for 2011. The depower system is very simple, but packed with features. It is a circle of Spectra line that goes from the Chicken Loop to the swivel with a short depower strap inline. For short reach, simply slide the circle around so that the strap comes closer. For longer reach, slide the circle around the other direction. Stopper ball is small enough to comfortably hold between your fingers while riding.
