Flysurfer Kiteboarding: CRONIX – A new era begins

HOLD THE PRESS! Flysurfer have made an inflatable kite! The brand that has been working so hard on the aerodynamics of kites over the last 10 years has launched thier first LEI kite, the Cronix, and yes, we have one on test! Full report in the next issue!

The L.E.I. by Flysurfer
Over the last ten years, Flysurfer made a name for itself as an innovator for the bridled ram-air kite system (foilkite) and has become a force to be reckoned with – especially in the niche markets. The addition of a leading edge inflatable kite to our product portfolio is probably a surprise to some, but the thought process behind it is rather simple: We want to push boundaries and evolve the best out of all systems! It has been almost two years since we made the decision to develop kites open to any system and newly position our brand. Now we present to you the first result of this decision: The Flysurfer Cronix.

The Cronix – The beginning of a new era
With the Cronix, we are once again breaking new ground. The Adaptive Airfoil System generates a considerable increase in low end power. The trailing edge bridle creates more lift through the curvature of the kite profile when powering up, simultaneously helping relaunch, whether by reverse start or by pulling a steering line. The effectiveness of the trailing edge bridle can be adjusted within seconds on the kite, just like the bar forces – so that every rider has the right kite to match his/her preferences.

Allround Performance – Easy Handling
Fast kiteloops, breathtaking freestyle tricks, hard cut-backs off the lip, sporty flight feeling and an enormous wind range…It is crystal clear: The adjustment features of the Cronix have enabled us to create a true allrounder, however it is not just a trusty companion for every kind of kitesurfing. The Cronix is a pleasantly smooth and uncomplicated kite to fly, with a lot of on-demand potential. Relaunching is easy for novices even in the lightest winds, cruisers will immediately feel at home with the Cronix and wake- & freestylers have the ultimate drug at their disposal with the Cronix. Last but not least – although the kite can hold its own in the waves with purebred wave kites, this does not mean that jumps have to take a back seat – the Cronix is a true allrounder.

Flysurfer Quality
Thanks to our X-GLOO division, we have gained years of experience in building and designing inflatable constructions. We put this experience to good use in the Cronix, likewise the past six months were pure testing and fine-tuning. With Flysurfer, you can be sure that only thoroughly tested materials make it into our end products – from each individual line to each small piece of cloth in the canopy. We have replaced pulleys on the front lines with maintenance-free, durable low-friction rings. We put a lot of effort into the development of our Free Flow Valve, which means that pumping now requires much less effort than ever before – and we were even able to successfully optimize the pump!
