Check out the 2018 CrazyFly gear!
CrazyFly brand has been built on high-quality manufacturing in the heart of Europe and exceptional customer service. They are extremely proud to be the first and only Kiteboarding brand producing all of our products in our own factory based in Europe. In addition to their in-house production of kiteboards, control bars, and board accessories, they managed to set up our own kite production in Slovakia and transfer surfboards production to Europe.
Brand new and exclusive to CrazyFly, they’ve introduced Triplex, the most advanced “rip stop” material on the market. Triplex has by far the best strength to weight ratio and with triple coating its durability is unmatched. The coating protects the fabric from UV rays, salt and abrasive objects, such as sand. Triple coating and three ripstop yarns ensure the lowest possible elongation and deterioration of the material till date.
They’ve re-worked the construction and again pushed the limits of strength, rigidity, and weight of the kite. With Strategic Dacron placement and Tailored Canopy, the resulting performance is breathtaking!
The 2018 CrazyFly Sculp is a versatile all-around performer, suitable for a wide range of riders and styles. It delivers consistency in all riding disciplines and offers incredible wind range and ease of use.
Shape-wise, the Sculp now has a high aspect ratio, which makes the kite slimmer and much faster. This also results in a more Delta shape which offers smooth, stable, and predictable flight with progressive power delivery and amazing jumping, boosting and lift.

The 2018 Tango is a high performance freeride and wave kite for advanced to expert riders. The Tango is a modern open C-shape kite with lots of pull, power, and pop. The Tango loves boosting and floaty jumps with amazing hang time. It turns quickly with predictable power and moves exactly where the rider wants it to go. Powered kite loops come with ease, plus the Tango provides amazing upwind abilities.
Shape-wise, the Tango has short completely squared wingtips and short Linked bridle without pulleys or sliders for ultimate response and direct bar feel.

The 2018 Cruze is a dedicated light wind kite in our range coming only in 15m and 17m sizes. With a Flat-Delta shape, deep profile, and high aspect ratio, the Cruze generates a lot of power even in marginal wind conditions.
Despite its larger size, the Cruze maintains the agility of a smaller kite thanks to its shape and sturdy construction. The squared wingtips ensure stability as well as quick and precise turning for a kite of this size. To maximize performance in the lightest sea breezes, we stripped down weight wherever possible without sacrificing the rigidity of the kite. Simple bridle and rock-solid construction result in a very user-friendly light bar feel.

CrazyFly Kiteboards 2018 – Freeride / Freestyle
The Legend Reborn
Our full carbon top model received a brand new shape after seven years. When you make a good very good shape, it is hard to make a better one and we spent three years working on the new Raptor LTD. The 2018 Raptor LTD also comes in a brand new Neon version for customers who prefer better visibility of the board in dark water.
Sticking to its core properties of a high end freeride/freestyle board, it remains a full carbon, an ultralight masterpiece. The 2018 Raptor LTD features a brand new Ellipse double concave shape in the center of the bottom for unmatched comfort and Double V tips for better grip when popping. Buttery soft in chop, yet dynamic for high end freeride and freestyle. Brand new CompFlex 4T5 Carbon on the bottom of the board makes the new LTD even more comfortable and smoother, especially in choppy water. Latest in the Carbon tech world, the CompFlex 4T5 has a brand new weave which provides much more flex without sacrificing the strength. Plus the new weave is thinner and requires less epoxy resulting in 0,1 kg weight saving per board.
CrazyFly exclusive and latest in tech, the Nano Glide Skin on the bottom of the board helps the board track and go upwind better thanks to its microchannels. The Nano Glide skin foil has better gliding properties and generates speed quicker, plus it is more resistant to scratches. The top of the board has a brand new matt overprint for that eye-catching premium look.

This board is shaped and constructed to be pushed hard, and it delivers amazing power on the water. The brand new shape features a deep center concave for added comfort and smoother feel. Along the center concave, we created two split V channels for more grip and better upwind tracking. They also play a big part for load ‘n’ pop trick which are also supported by triple concave tips. The Bulldozer continues to be the fastest board in our range, so you can really transfer all the speed into your jumps and boosts. If you like to push the gas pedal, the Bulldozer is definitely the right choice.
We have reinforced the Bulldozer’s construction with Uni-directional Kevlar throughout the whole length of the board. Kevlar is a high strength and low weight composite and is used in military and space industries. Plus, we added a Spread Tow Carbon reinforcement in the center of the board to increase the board dynamics and pop. Aside from the Kevlar and Carbon, the Bulldozer also makes use of Multiaxial Fiber Glass. This construction provides a breathtaking amount of pop without making the board too stiff.
