Throw the most radical moves, boost insane kite loops, or progress through tricks: the V8 enables any rider to boost their confidence!
DOUBLE STITCHED MULTI SEGMENT LEADING EDGE
Multiple reinforcements improve durability. The leading edge and struts are built with the most durable Dacron. The leading edge has been reinforced along the entire seam to protect it from getting damaged when crashing or getting a pounding in the waves. This makes it hands down one of the toughest kites on the market. Kevlar reinforcements on the strut end protect against friction wear.
FIT ALL VALVE
All our kites are equipped with a ‘fit-all-valve’ for easy inflation. The bayonet fitting fits all pumps and the large valve opening makes inflation a breeze. You won’t have to spend hours and hours pumping your kites anymore. You will be able to ride in the perfect wind in no time.
If you look closely at the canopy attached to the leading edge, you will see multiple triangular-shaped panels. These multiple triangular-shaped panels called TriFlow, create a smooth and clean transition between the leading edge and the canopy. By using the TriFlow, the canopy attached to the Leading edge is now able to curve both sideways over the leading edge and from the leading edge to the trailing edge.
This creates an extremely smooth surface and airflow over the canopy, resulting in more stability and better overall performance. This makes it more stable when you depower the kite and totally want to focus on your ride, rather than your kite. Feel the Difference.
ADJUSTABLE BAR PRESSURE
Most PLKB kites come with adjustable backline settings to adjust the bar feel of the kite. Moving the bridle attachment point back towards the trailing edge will make the steering pressure lighter but will require more movement of the bar. Changing the settings is super easy, just detach the back bridle line and reattach it to your preferred setting to have more or less bar pressure and steering movement. This is a personal decision based on your riding style and experience.
- ADJUSTABLE PIGTAIL POSITION
By moving the pigtail over the back bridle lines away from the kite, you can compensate for front-line stretching. Or, by moving the pigtail over the back bridle lines towards the kite, you can compensate for a less responsive kite. This is why our kites are equipped with 4 pre-set attachment points on the back bridle lines. This will make sure you always have the same feeling even when the kite gets older.
- LASER TECH
Because the canopy is being cut using computer-controlled lasers, the profile of the Escape V8 has become super smooth, limiting all wrinkles from forming in the canopy. This makes the kite more efficient and improves the Escape’s flight characteristics. The V8’s flight behavior has also become more stable, direct, and responsive than before.
The V8’s flight characteristics have become more efficient. Also thanks to the tighter trailing edge the kite has become more stable, direct, and responsive, especially in gusty and strong wind conditions. The Escape V8 maintains its shape which significantly improves its boosting and big air capabilities.
- 4-STRUT DESIGN
The eighth-generation Escape remains distinctive because of its 4-strut design. By leaving the kite’s large middle section free from struts, the Escape is provided with even more grunt and boost that gives you all the power you need to throw even the most radical moves.
- OPEN-C SHAPE
The open C-kite shape is great to help you generate all the speed you need to jump high, change direction quickly and do tricks in the air. The kite’s wide middle section and deep profile increase the float, keeping you up there during your big air tricks and megalops, and still provides solid upwind to keep the rider in the competition box or close to the beer cooler.
- SHORT PULLEY-LESS BRIDLE
A solid bar feels and direct kite feedback are necessary to ensure maximum control no matter the conditions. Especially if your trick of choice is a megaloop or handle-pass, precise control makes the difference between landing a trick or crashing. All the power generated by the Escape V8 is kept in close control by a short, pulley-less bridle. This makes the kite responsive and it reacts very precisely to your commands.
- INTUITIVE HANDLING AND KITE FEEDBACK
The Escape’s smooth power and predictable handling give the rider a feeling of trust and control that inspires confidence from the first ride. The 4-strut design offers a balanced distribution of power and great stability. The big strut-less center section gives the kite loads of grunt while the squared wingtips help with direct and responsive steering.
- DIRECT AND RESPONSIVE STEERING
The Escape’s pulley-less bridle makes the kite responsive and direct. This allows you to place the kite exactly where you need it. The short bridle makes it turn fast and as tight as you want, a great feature for kite loops. The fast turning also makes it easy to work the kite in lower winds.
- BIG WIND RANGE
Thanks to its fast steering, stability, and predictability, the Escape V8 has a large usable wind range. Get out sooner and stay out longer. The wide center panel of the canopy gives you the grunt and stability to fly in a wide range of conditions.
- FREESTYLE ORIENTED PERFORMANCE
The Escape’s open C-shape gives the kite a huge amount of power, especially when you send it for a jump. Thanks to the excellent bar feedback, the rider always feels in control and will be able to place the kite exactly where they need it to utilize its power to the fullest and bust out crazy moves.
