Lightwind is our thing! 

Lightwind kites are our thing. And we make 'em for all our Universal Series kites. This year is especially exciting as we've added an ExoTex Light leading edge. Kite weight's down. And performance is way up. So pump up, and rule the lightwind skies.

The XR7 LW inherits all the power and ridiculous wind range of the legendary XR7 while receiving noticeable weight-saving upgrades like ExoTex Light struts and leading edge. We swapped out the canopy material for CoreTex 2.0 so XR7 LW pilots will enjoy flying in cleaner air upwind from the pack.

The XR7 LW’s DNA is packed with innovative technology like CoreTex 2.0, ExoTex Light, and Intelligent Arc that supercharges its performance. CoreTex 2.0 massively improves tear resistance, durability, and most importantly flight stability. CORE’s exclusive ExoTex Light Dacron, for example, reduces leading edge weight while maintaining its shape in gusts. And Intelligent Arc massively expands its wind range. We could go on, but we prefer that you find out for yourself how you and your squadron can rule the light wind skies with the XR7 LW.

This is the way a kiteboarding shop should be. Staff are super friendly. They take the time to understand your requirements, provide advice and never put any pressure on you to buy anything. There's a huge range of stock and I've been able to demo a great range of kites and boards over the years.
After sales service is the best. Recently I had an issue with a kite I'd bought there which was well out of warranty and they didn't hesitate to inspect, diagnose and repair the issue for me and get me back on the water.

You can’t go wrong buying your kites, boards, foils, and all your gear from Kitepower - and I’ll tell you why. The culture of the business mirrors the passion and dedication of the company’s founder, Steve McCormack. And culture matters. When you purchase from Kitepower you’re purchasing from a team of kiting enthusiasts and experts who will look after you. You’ll be purchasing from a family owned business that will do the right thing and put your safety and comfort first. I fully understand that you might not have an opportunity to meet Steve. And maybe if you're purchasing online you won't step foot inside their Sydney location. But I can tell you that Steve’s dedication to kiters and to the sport of kiting is imprinted into the DNA of Kitepower and the team.
