New for 2017, we’ve added material upgrades to make the kite even more bombproof. Trailing edge tension is now controlled with the addition of Teijin T2 Polyester rip stop canopy material. This decreases trailing edge flutter and increases durability. We also reinforced the one-pump inflation valve’s connection to the bladder to help prevent blowouts caused by improper hose attachment/detachment. Finally, we added Kevlar patches to prevent bridle rub on the trailing edges.
