PRODUCT INFO

THE EDGE HAS A PEDIGREE UNSURPASSED BY ANY OTHER PERFORMANCE KITE TO DATE, NOW IN ITS 8TH VERSION SINCE FIRST INTRODUCING THIS MODEL. THE EDGE HAS CONSISTENTLY PROVEN ITS FREE RIDE PERFORMANCE, BIG AIR CAPABILITIES AND TAKEN RIDERS TO THE TOP OF RACE PODIUMS AROUND THE WORLD.

Whether your passion is action packed freeride, big air, foil boarding or racing the Edge delivers high performance in all conditions. A stable yet highly efficient profile yields progressive power delivery and generous boost when you send it. This directly translates to all-round performance on a racecourse allowing you to point higher upwind and lower downwind, all while going faster!

Over the season we have fine-tuned the Edge working on new bridle configurations enhancing the new Edge V8 with a smoother feel on the bar and improved handling characteristics. The Edge V8 is incredibly predictable; learning new big air moves or nailing those foil board and race board tacks has never been easier.

The Edge V8 has been designed using our new highly advanced custom built CAD software. Our designers are able to work with parameters specifically formulated to calculate flexible wings. The Edge V8 incorporates optimised layout of segments and balanced strut positioning resulting in a clean profile and canopy throughout angle of attack changes.  

The Edge V8 is constructed with quality Teijin D2 and Teijin Dacron providing a crisper feel and a stronger kite. A low-drag pulley-less bridle system is achieved through optimised load distribution into the attachment points. The bridles are spliced using high quality Aramid line, which is 50% thinner than our standard bridle line giving the Edge a turbo charged feel. Combined with our Race Control System and Race Flying Lines the Edge truly is a winning package.

The Edge V8 size range is expansive, with 5m through to 19m this allows riders to choose exactly what they need in a race regatta or for freeride mega boosting on high wind days.

In gusty or turbulent wind the Edge will be easier to use and handle in both free ride and race situations when compared to the Chrono and R1. We recommend that all intermediate riders use the Edge before considering moving to a foil for free riding or racing.

Contact Water Control System

PRODUCT INFO

THE CONTACT-WATER CONTROL SYSTEM OFFERS THE LATEST IN RELEASE FEATURES, A CLEAN CONTROL BAR DESIGN AND A SIMPLE EASY-TO-USE TRIMMING SYSTEM.

Push Away Quick Release – The control system features our Megatron push-away quick release with total flag out of the kite. The release handle is ergonomic with positive release forces for quick and easy release. Simple re-assembly saves time and gets you back up and riding faster.

Two Release Modes – The Megatron offers riders a choice of two release modes, the recommended Standard or the optional Expert mode.
• Standard mode offers 100% flag out in all situations by releasing the Megatron or letting go of the bar when un-hooked.
• Expert mode offers 100% flag out only when the Megatron is released whilst hooked in, allowing riders practicing handle passes to let go of the bar without releasing the kite to flag out (not recommended).

Anti-twist Flag Out Line and Spinning Handle –The flag out line running through the Megatron & kite leash attachment at the bottom keeps the leash tangle free when doing rotations and manually unwinding the centre lines using the Spinning Handle.

Auto Positioning Chicken Loop – Designed in conjunction with the bar centre piece, the Megatron spinning handle auto positions the chicken loop when unhooking.

Soft Bar Ends with Hide-away Elastic Line Retainers – Soft bar ends for comfort and are less likely to damage lightly constructed boards. Hide-away elastic line retainers keep wound lines secured.

Stainless Steel Leader Line Pin - Superior strength is achieved with a Stainless pin running through the bar. This creates an ultra strong and direct connection between the control bar to flying lines.

Low Friction Centre Piece – The control bar features a low friction centre piece designed to reduce wear.

PU Covered De-Power Line - The tough PU covered de-power line significantly reduces wear when sheeting in and out.

Stainless Steel Trimmer Bracket – The smooth running trimmer bracket also prevents trim line wear.

Clamcleat Trimmer – Anodized low abrasion Clamcleat trimmer.

Bungee Trim Line & Magnetic Handle – The internal bungee with magnetic handle connects to a magnetic neoprene sock covering the clam cleat to reduce tangles when the trimmer is de-powered.

Re-launch Balls - Fixed to the leader lines to pull when re-launching the kite.

Flying Lines – Colour coded 500kg front / 300kg back lines.

EVA Grip - Lightly sanded with ergonomic finger bumps providing the ultimate bar grip.

The Contact-Water Control System bar sizes come in 38cm, 45cm, 50cm and 55cm. The larger size PU chicken loop (sold separately) is perfect for riders with longer arms or requiring even easier hooking in & out.

 

MEGATRON PUSH-AWAY CHICKEN LOOP

The Megatron Chicken Loop features push-away release with total flag out of the kite. The release handle is ergonomic with positive forces for quick and easy release. Simple re-assembly saves time and gets you back up and riding faster.

All riders should attach their kite leash to the total flag out system. This is the small eyelet of the steel ring at the bottom of the Megatron. When the chicken loop is released, the kite will flag out and fall to the water/ground.

Advanced Riders: (not recommended, use at your own risk)
Riders performing unhooked tricks or who are more confident and have spent many hours kiting can attach to the ring using the Expert mode, where the chickenloop runs through the large eye of the steel ring.

NOTE: When letting go of the bar in Expert mode (without releasing the Megatron, e.g. missed handle pass) the kite will depower but WILL NOT flag out. Be aware in this situation, the Megatron will be out of reach and can therefore not be released. When hooked in and releasing the Megatron the steel ring automatically slips off the chicken loop and the kite will flag out.

In all situations make sure that all lines are clear of all working release systems and the kite leash is connected in the right way.
