Peter Lynn Aero Race Kite
Let the Peter Lynn Aero be your ticket to high performance racing, long hangtime on any terrain and low wind sessions you thought never before possible allowing you enjoy the tranquillity of riding in the lowest winds and maximize the time you can spend out there doing what you love most.

Whilst the Aero has been designed initially for uncompromised racing performance, it also offers you ease of use and stability to put a smile on your face whenever you pull the bar to leave everything and everyone behind.

At the same time it is created to get you going in the lightest of breezes because there are few things in life that make your daily troubles disappear like the peaceful mellow of a light wind session. Be it cruising desolate beaches, riding snow covered hills or foiling glass lagoons.

Flying Characteristics:

Large Windrange:
Built with only high-tech, ultra-light weight materials the Aero performs in the lightest of breezes. Yet it’s sophisticated design and large depower range assures you remain in control when the wind picks up. The kite’s handling feedback and responsive steering add to a feeling of control throughout the entire depower range giving the Aero a large and balanced ‘sweetspot’.

Razor Sharp Upwind Drive:
Designed with racing in mind the Aero is tuned as sharp as possible without sacrificing stability. Positioned at the edge of the wind window the kite delivers thrilling speed and an hard matched upwind drive.

Exhilirating Acceleration:
Focused and poised to get your adrenalin pumping the Aero responds immediately to your steering impulse with a ferociously fast build-up of flying speed. Making it easy to get on your board and up to speed quick.

Superior Stability:
Whatever you ride, you want your focus to be on the ride ahead without having to worry about your kite. The Aero has a very wide wind window and remains highly stable at the edges. Coupled with the core value of ease of use the Aero crosses the divide between high performance racing and leisurely cruising.

Quick Turning:
The Aero’s steering is precise and responsive, adding to depth of performance and the pilots sense of absolute control.
The kite’s turning speed allows for fast and powerful downloop gibes which add to the intensity of flying a high performance kite even more.

Smooth On Demand Power:
The power of the kite is precisely regulated by pulling the bar, from that little bit extra you need to switch stance while tacking or gibing to an explosive boost for some serious hangtime. This dynamic and responsive power regulation also allows you to push speed and downwind angle to endlessly addictive levels.

Velcro and Water Out Channels:
A 20mm internal channel is shaped into the end of the cells along the trailing edge to allow water run-out between the cells and out of the tips during flight. The Velcro dirt out channels can be opened for cleaning the kite. Always clean your kite by emptying any water, sand or dirt as this will prolong the life of the kite and help it fly as designed.

Construction:
The Aero has been completely built with 20D Fabric to ensure the light wind performance associated with this type of kite. To create the kite's high dimensional stability we used 30D hard coated fabric for the internal construction.

To increase the aerodynamics of the kite, a fibre batten has been fitted on the front of each panel to create a very slick ‘nose’. While these fibre rods keep the nose tightly in shape they also add to the overall stability of the kite and help prevent luffing.

The inside of the kite is designed especially to maximize dimensional stability as well as reduced need for bridle points. The tension straps running along the bottom skin is a technical detail borrowed from the Twinskin/Arc design and ensures proper bulging of the bottom skin while keeping the tension in check. The clever D and H Ribs allow for evenly spaced out bridle points.

The Internal construction allows for evenly spaced out bridle points which in turn allow for a drastic reduction in overall bridle length. The bridle itself is constructed out of the highest grade Liros® DC 100% Dyneema® lines.

The Aero’s high Aspect Ratio and high cell count make for a very thin and slick wing. The high number of cells ensure the wings dimensional stability and prevents deforming of the designed shape. The High Aspect ratio makes the kite cut upwind like a knife and allows for high flying speeds.

The Aero’s speed system is constructed with 2×2 Ronstan® Orbit pulleys, these high quality pulleys weigh only 9grams and allow for loads up to 250Kg. And since the line goes through the bearing it will always stay connected even in the rare case the pulley gets damaged.

The bridle tabs are double stitched and reinforced with a Dacron patch for strength and durability, a Peter Lynn system which has proven its reliability time over time.

Each individual size has its very own design specifics and Aspect Ratio, this ensures optimal performance in each size as well as synergized handling, feel and balance across the range.
