LIGHTWIND / FREERIDE
The ALUULA-powered A-Series Flite is a 3-strut kite that is highly responsive yet lighter than current no-strut kites, providing optimum light wind performance, while retaining precision and control in increased wind speeds.
The extreme light weight, combined with the stiff yet reactive ALUULA airframe technology, means larger kites become supercharged, allowing performance levels to increase exponentially.
To further build on the enhancements provided by ALUULA, we have fine-tuned all our light wind manufacturing techniques and components, with the Flite Ultra Lite canopy using proven D2 double ripstop from Teijin.
Incredibly responsive, the A-Series Flite excels in all riding styles and with whichever board you are riding.
The days of compromise are over. The A-Series Flite is the world’s lightest, strongest, and highest performing light wind kite.
This Wind range chart is for reference only, calculated for a 75kg / 180lb rider.
Board size, foil size, rider weight, rider skill level and wind / weather / water conditions all must be taken into consideration when selecting a kite size. If unsure of which size to select, choose the smaller size.
It’s no secret that removing struts from kites means a compromise in performance – the reduction in weight improves light wind capabilities but the downside is reduced stability and poor top-end performance. With a full ALUULA airframe however, there is simply no need to compromise.
The reduction in weight and increase in strength of this airframe means you can retain all three struts and still enjoy the light wind benefits you’d get from a no-strut or one-strut kite, as well as the expansive usable wind range that comes with having a three-strut kite. The evenly balanced weight distribution of the three struts and the light leading edge deliver remarkable resistance to back stall and luffing if you overshoot the kite or find yourself in a lull.
Precision curved to match the airfoil profile, the ALUULA airframe is highly tuned to take full advantage of the unique properties of this cutting-edge composite material which is sewn using super-tough Quad Lock stitching, designed specifically for ALUULA.
Simply put: the ALUULA three-strut airframe delivers the best handling in ALL conditions.
Creating a light wind performance kite is no easy task… The Flite A-Series contains a wide arc and large projected area to produce as much power per square meter as possible. In addition, the Flite features a high aspect ratio which produces greater lift while generating less drag, resulting in a kite that lifts you windward.
Inspired by the Rise, The Flite's wing tips have been completely redesigned for 2022. This new shape provides even more lift and control when the kite is positioned low and at the edge of the wind window.
