Features

DLX+ Material

DLX+ kite cloth offers increased strength of the base fabric and a new coating for reduced porosity. It is also tear-resistant and retains its material properties for longer. It is available in six fresh, eye catching colors.

 

Strong Construction

The new internal construction raises the quality of FLYSURFER foil kites to a new level. Double-stitched seams and extra taped ribs and straps provide even more stability.

 

Rigid Foil Technology

The Rigid Foil Technology is used to reduce wrinkles on the leading edge. This results in reduced aerodynamic drag and enhanced kite stability. As a result, the kite translates every gust of wind into propulsion without deforming the canopy. Overall, the Rigid Foils increases the kite’s stiffness and makes it more dynamic.

 

Double Cordwise Ballooning

Double Cordwise Ballooning is minimizing the creasing of the cells on the kite to an absolute minimum. With exactly calculated arc-shaped panel cuts, double-stitched and glued seams a perfectly smooth, high performance airfoil is created. This optimizes the aerodynamics, especially the glide ratio and the low end.

 

Triple Depower Technology

There are 3 ways the kite achieves its maximum depower: Reducing the angle of attack, profile change and reducing the projected area. This leads to a huge wind range and ideal handling.

 

Automatic Drainage System

The proven drainage system integrated in the whole trailing edge of the kite, with finally openings near the tips, about the size of a hand. They allow water and sand to be drained automatically, without influencing the performance of the kite.

 

Quality of Workmanship and Durability

With this product we remain true to the FLYSURFER philosophy to make our products durable. Each cloth, each line and each component has been tested extensively, we always go for quality and functionality over price.

 

LIROS Dyneema Lines

FLYSURFER trusts in the lines of LIROS that are produced in Germany with a high quality standard. Thanks to their strong Dyneema core fibers, a reduced line diameter is possible while maintaining equal breaking strength.

 

SPEED5 … explore new dimensions!

FLYSURFER focused during the development of the new SPEED-line on functionality and product value. This amazing allrounder is known for its great fun-factor in light wind and intoxicating hang-time. The new generation is faithful to its strengths and also convinces by its high stability throughout the windrange, light steering and easy relaunch. The optimized turning as well as the large depower make the SPEED5 very well controlled and therefore very safe, which also underlines its enormous wide range of use. The sophisticated newly engineered design in combination with the robust DLX+ kite cloth a very harmonious bar feedback has been created that appeals to both beginners and professionals. On top of that, the reduced aerodynamic drag due to the Rigid Foil technology and the Double Cordwise Ballooning helped to further increase the lift of the kite. Rounding off the unbeatable overall package with FLYSURFER’s typical, small pack size and a fresh design for the sportiest SPEED ever – creating new dimensions.

The Wind Range Chart is to be used as a point of reference. It is based on a rider who weighs around 75kg (165lbs.) Actual use will vary depending on your weight, skill level, board size and the wind conditions on the water or land. When choosing a kite size, always use common sense and always choose a smaller size if you are not sure, especially when using the kite on land.
