TX-LIGHT HYBRID CONCEPT
The HYBRID is the ingenious fusion of two foil-kite constructions: It combines the depower and stability of a single skin with the water launch ability, control, and handling of a double skin. The sailcloths feature UV-resistant fabrics, airtight coatings, and hydrophobic properties to improve airflow when wet.
The performance tuner is a knot ladder integrated into the C-pulley line to modify the camber of the kite. Moving the Z-Main Line affects the bar forces and performance of the kite. Shortening increases low-end power and steering/holding forces. Lengthening does the opposite, decreasing maximum power, and steering/holding power.
FRONT LINE SAFETY SYSTEM
After the activation of the quick-release system, the kite’s power flags out on a single front line attached to the opposite side of its leading edge. When sorting the bridle lines, note that the cross-main line runs to the other side of the leading edge. This is required to ensure minimum pull of the HYBRID kite due to its low aspect ratio.
The fun factor is always our top priority. The love for hydrofoiling makes this foil kite unique. We have tested the kite with 1200 cm² – 2000 cm² front wings in small waves and are convinced by its performance and drift. We’ve never had so much fun in conditions where you normally start struggling. The HYBRID gives you the confidence to grow beyond yourself.
THE KITE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
Sports holiday with the whole family! Exercise is valuable for personal development and human health. We all know the challenges of traveling with heavy luggage. The minimal pack size and low weight of the HYBRID is the solution. In use, the kite allows young shredders to make progress intuitively and independently. Parents can then easily climb onto the hydrofoil and enjoy their session.
ENTRY INTO THE SPORT
We had one goal in mind: make the kite sport more accessible. Safety and ease of use are the key requirements for the HYBRID. After extensive long-term tests with our partners, we are convinced that we have revolutionized entry into the sport. The HYBRID is a must-have for every water sports station and makes kiting possible in places that we thought were not kiteable.
The HYBRID is forgiving and effortless to fly and easy to control. The single-skin area allows for the reduction of force peaks and lift, and prevents high-speed impacts. The kite drifts extremely well and has enormous stability in gusty, light, and strong winds. The great control and predictable flight characteristics make it the best high wind foil kite in our line-up.
The HYBRID enables a safe and playful approach to the sport. The low weight and the light bar forces allow children to fly the kite in the lower wind range without any effort. The low-lift concept and the immediate depower prevent beginners from being lifted away and inspires confidence in the kite. It’s a revolution for the youngest twintip shredders, a playful kite for hydrofoiling, and the game changer for trainers.
In classic FLYSURFER style, the HYBRID feels at home on any surface. Use it on water, land, and snow. Be the first one ready for a session anytime, anywhere.
