Snow And Water

SAME DRIVE, DIFFERENT ELEMENTS!

For a long time our team and film crew had the idea to combine snowkiting and kitesurfing in one session, to get the love and passion of the two sports conveyed in one awesome video. This video truly transmits the essence of being 'Inspired by Nature and Driven by the Elements'. Late in the season as the ice started to thaw but with the snow still firmly set, the conditions were finally on in Haugastøl, Norway to make this dream a reality.

The Chrono V3 Ultralight and the Hyperlink V1 are both the perfect arsenal for this type of adventure and add the Zephyr V5 to the mix for some impressive floaty boosting and rotations. The Chrono is super reactive in light winds with an impeccably smooth handling while the Hyperlink is the ideal crossover kite for those just getting into the sport and want to switch from an inflatable. The Hyperlink is the first foil kite to be as dynamic and fun to ride as a performance inflatable. Creating a new era of foil kite riding. (More info: ozonekites.com)

Being able to snowkite means you can leave the crowds behind, ditch the T-bars and make your own way up the mountain while creating your own tracks as you go.

Slingshot the new RPM

From Slack to Soar

For years, the RPM was fine-tuned to load, pop and go slack in the air before re-engaging. We had the tuning down to a science, and it helped give multiple freestyle world champions their gold medals. Our mission with the 2019 RPMwas to change that - not to eliminate anything - but to shift the kite’s tuning to where we see the sport shifting. At the level the RPM is designed for that means bigger, better, loftier in-air performance. From slack to soar, the 2019 RPM is the world’s go-to kite for versatile freeride performance.

  • Completely new FlyLine bridle incorporates pulley and bungee for a more direct feel and smoother power delivery in the window. 
  • The Deep-C shape, in the air, gives more overall power, structural stability, hangtime and control. 
  • New Load Shift transfers power and load from wingtip to wingtip resulting in smoother, cleaner, more powerful performance.
  • Bombproof Slingshot engineering and construction, always.

Launching with the new RPM we have three of our go-to twin tips for a range of conditions. For light-wind shenanigans, you can’t beat the Glide; for freestyle, freeriding, boosting, big air and crossover versatility, look no further than theVision; and for a user-friendly, all-around ride the Crisis will leave you with no worries in the world.
