NEW 4x4 Canopy Tech
New for 2020, we’ve upgraded our canopy construction with Teijin 4x4 reinforced ripstop material. This is the strongest, stiffest and most durable canopy material on the market. Your kite will last longer, have a higher resale value and feel more solid and stable in the air, especially in gusty wind.
NEW Hybrid Open-C Canopy
Five struts give the canopy the superior stability and rigidity needed for aggressive riding, big-air boosting and extreme wind conditions.
NEW Segmented Swept Wingtips
New for 2020 our designers engineered a new wingtip design using variable diameter segments. These segments combine to create a uniform and structured design with a cleaner more efficient swept wingtip shape. This design aids in the kite’s structural stability, response time, as well as water relaunch.
No Pulleys No Problem. The Raptor is engineered around a direct connect pulley-less bridle. This gives the Raptor unmatched bar feel and input while still providing maximum wind range, turning speed, ease of relaunch and unrivaled upwind performance.
