It’s the 6-year anniversary for the Envy officially thrusting the kite to a legacy status! The Envy is the anchor of the LF kite line highlighted by versatility and ease of use from the beginner to the pro rider. The design staff, lead by Julien Fillion, took a deep look at 6 years of history in the kite to bring the 2016 Envy to life. The big question: How do you make an already amazing performing kite better?
This answer was not simple to attain. But what resulted is a kite that is now packed with user adjustability that when combined with a refined wingtip profile increases bar feel and response, you now have a kite that will satisfy any free riding, free styling, connoisseur. Nothing has been lost in the refinements of the Envy. Rock solid stability, easy on / off power delivery and a light weight bomb proof construction will inspire confidence and progression at any level.
