Check out the Liquid Force Kiteboarding 2020 product overview, right here!

Liquid Force 2020 Kites

2020 Solo

Crossover Progression, Freeriding, Hydrofoiling, Light wind

Light as air, the 2020 Solo offers jet-setting freeriders and hydrofoil enthusiasts a kite with ideal performance characteristics based on an industry-proven, easy-to-fly single strut platform. The 2020 Solo was completely redesigned to make the kite more forgiving, lighter, and more nimble in the sky. The Solo continues to offer a smooth and comfortable sheeting range throughout the powerband, granting easy access to power and control. When it comes to marginal conditions, the Solo has an extremely efficient, lightweight shape that makes its light wind performance a force to be reckoned with. Simultaneously, the profile of the 2020 Solo makes dumping the gusts out of the kite effortless. We wanted the Solo to be so easy to use that your focus is having fun on the water and nothing else.

To achieve all of the design goals for 2020, a lot had to be done to the DNA of the Solo. We started by flattening the arc through the centre of the kite, giving the Solo more inherent low-end power. Next, we cleaned up the profile of the canopy, making the kite more playful and quicker through the sky. To take full advantage of these two changes, we also widened the wingtips. This gives the kite more rigidity and turning response while expanding the “sweet spot” of the kite, making it more accepting of increased rear line tension. Finally, we opted to use a compact dynamic bridle featuring two lightweight aluminium sliders. This bridle configuration opened the useable wind range of the Solo and increased bar feedback, giving you complete control over the kite in both high-wind and low-wind conditions.

The Solo was, yet again, put on a weight-reduction plan, making it the lightest kite in our line. By using a combination of lightweight bladders, minimal dacron application, and a trimmed out-build, we were able to shave a significant amount of weight off of an already extremely light kite.

Features

WOW V4

Surf and freestyle strapless surf

The WOW v4, with a complete redesign, offers wave seekers and strapless surf freestylers a kite with effortless flying characteristics. This kite lets you focus on pulling the next move, making unmakeable sections, and placing yourself perfectly in the pocket.

Our goals for the WOW v4 were to improve response from the bar, increase turning speed, and tighten the axis point radius of the turning arc while retaining the superior slack line drift the WOW has always been known for. To accomplish this, our design change started with an exploration of a completely new profile and shape. After countless hours of computer-aided design, numerous prototypes and months of testing, we have arrived at a new profile arc and a new “boxy” shape that meets all of our design goals.

Increased bar response improves the intuitive feel; rapid pivotal turning axis lets you precisely place the kite where you want it, and the smooth power delivery can easily be dumped on-demand to handle erratic and gusty wind or to grant complete depower for surfing without the power of the kite. We didn’t stop with just a new profile and overall shape. The wingtips of the WOW v4 have evolved to be more elongated so that the kite can handle more rear-line tension. This helps eliminate back-stalling and provides rapid re-launch. It also permits more aggressive use of the new profile in lighter wind, making it possible to size down and ride with confidence.

Legendary Liquid Force bomb-proof construction combines with newly added performance features, including the use of Teijin Triple Ripstop canopy and an infused strut connection that adds stiffness to the overall canopy profile, making for a reactive platform that reduces distortion and flutter.

Features

  • Lightweight: Lightweight 3 strut platform offering excellent canopy stability and superior drift.
  • Arc Shape: “Boxy” shape and low profile for quick pivotal axis turning, smooth power delivery and easy-to-manage depower.
  • Profile: Low profile diameter leading edge that allows for quick directional changes and rapid movement through the wind window.
  • Material: Teijin Triple Ripstop and Dacron material provide strength, UV protection and tear resistance that’s specially developed for harsh kite surfing conditions.
  • Bridle: Simple no pulley bridle support. Lightweight and responsive by design. The lack of pulleys creates a more direct connection from rider to kite while eliminating unwanted weight on the leading edge.
  • Max Flow: Inflating your kite should be easy, and with the exclusive Liquid Force Max Flow valve and pump system, it is!
  • The widemouthed setup is nearly effortless and 40%  faster.
  • Tapered LE Tips: This LE wingtip design, combined with the LF tape batten prevents accidental bridle wraps.
  • One Pump System: Single point inflation system will inflate and deflate your struts automatically.
  • LE English Stitch Seams: Clean, interlocked, fray free design that creates a strong bond.
  • Tension Trailing Edge: Reduces flutter, creates efficiency and increases TE strength.

2020 NV

Crossover progression, hooked and unhooked freestyle, freeride

A redesign that is now tested, proven and perfected. There is no doubt the NV is synonymous with stability and dependability in all conditions and styles of riding. Not only does the NV embrace its heritage, but it now has set a new standard in freestyle kites.

The NV boasts a bold new complete airframe redesign. Squaring off the wingtips, combined with an entirely new leading edge to trailing edge profile has increased the handling and feel of the kite that will not only impress the freeriding specialist but will blow the mind of the wakestyle loyalist. The slight increase in leading-edge diameter size, combined with integrated strut construction, has created a recipe for more responsive turn initiation and reactive feedback. This not only suits the needs of progressing riders but also the wants of aggressive unhooked trick masters providing smooth pull and controllable slack.

Keeping true to the Liquid Force high-quality build, the 2020 NV utilises a simple, supportive bridle configuration that retains the shape of the kite in the craziest of conditions. Bombproof construction points, such as the layered frame, and now the use of Teijin Triple Ripstop canopy material, will keep your confidence high to attempt that new trick over and over.

HiFi-X V3

High performance unhooked and hooked freestyle, wake style

The long-anticipated and awaited time has come for the next generation of the HiFi. Since 2015 countless prototypes, endless testing, and novels of feedback has been poured into the development process of the HiFi X3. The challenge to improve what is touted as one of the best pure C kites in the competitive and purist freestyle world was a daunting task.

The achievements gained in the HiFi X3 will be the new benchmark in the pure C shape kites. Small modifications lead to massive refinements and a higher level of performance delivery.

New for the HiFi X V3 is a unique aspect ratio per size. This has created the perfectly tuned size allowing the kite to sit in the same position in the wind window, provide the same slack and to deliver the same feel across the wind range. A slight change in the leading edge diameter and a wider wingtip shape, has increased the rigidity leading to more stability in unstable wind, better feel when unhooked and easier relaunch off the rear lines. Material upgrades round out the improvement with the use of Teijin Triple ripstop for added abrasion and tear resistance.

Features

  • Platform: Rigid 5 strut C shape platform offering stability and direct connected feel
  • Tension Trailing Edge: Reduces flutter, creates efficiency and increases TE strength
  • Adjustability: Complete rider adjustability with multiple flying line and steering line attachment points.

Absolute

The Absolute started with a simple idea: What would happen if we set out to create a high-end performance twintip with no design limitations or cost restrictions? The board needed to be lightweight, fast, lively, and nimble. Simultaneously, we wanted a smooth ride with explosive pop, easy upwind tracking, and grip-and-rip style turning. We wanted the board to be made of the highest performing materials available, so we didn’t set any specific material or construction limits. After hours of testing and countless prototypes, we finally found the right balance of flex, durability, performance, and construction.

The Absolute features a precision CNC shaped full wood core, double concave “v-hull” bottom shape, and Textreme carbon top and bottom sheets. The engineered space-age carbon weave provides a stiff, springy flex while helping the board remain incredibly lightweight. While you are blasting through the chop or soaring over your friend, you’ll be sure to turn heads with the Textreme carbon checkered pattern. To top it off, we’ve released a limited-edition Pro Pad in a matching colourway that can be paired with this board to complete the cohesive look. The combination of its high-tech carbon construction, efficient rocker line and playful outline make the Absolute a perfect choice for energetic freeriders and explosive freestylers alike. We spared nothing in the creation of the Absolute, and the result is the lightest weight twin tip that Liquid Force Kiteboarding has ever made.

Features

  • Core: Full wood core CNC construction offering precise shape control.
  • Inserts: M6 inline inserts for ultimate strength and multiple stance options.
  • Outline: Forgiving elliptical outline drives through turns, while the narrower tip and tail provide more bite and clean release from the water.
  • Bottom Shape: V-hull bottom shape that’s designed to offer smooth landings, aggressive carves, and easy upwind tracking.
  • 3-D Shaping: 3-D top sheet contours that provide stiffness where necessary and flex where you want it.
  • Carbon: Textreme carbon top and bottom sheets add board stiffness while simultaneously dampening chop vibration. This lightweight engineered carbon material increases the desired flex characteristics of the Absolute while drastically reducing its overall board weight.
  • Liquid Rail

Boom

The gear demands of wakestyle and park riding kiteboarders differ significantly from the average Joe at the beach. That’s why when we set out to design the Boom, we wanted to draw on the deep knowledge base of Liquid Force Wake. After all, they have been designing park-specific boards for years. By combining years of LF design knowledge with Brandon Scheid’s intimate understanding of everything kiteboarding, we created a board that can stand up to the high demands of the reigning Kite Park Champion.

The Boom features a simple low-drag single concave bottom shape. This shape not only softens landings and aids in upwind tracking, but it also helps keep your board speed high, preventing excessive bog in the water. Thanks to its high rocker line and bombproof grind base, the Boom is also right at home in the cable park. This makes travelling easier, as you only need one board to cover all of your shredding needs. The Boom delivers wakestyle/park style performance.

“The board is one hell of an explosive, rock-solid, and versatile shred sledge!” – Brandon

Features

  • Core: Computer profiled 100% wood core.
  • Inserts: M6 inline inserts for ultimate strength and multiple stance options.
  • Channels: Cascading parabolic flex tip layout that offers snappy pop and controlled flex in presses.
  • Bottom Shape: Efficient low drag single concave bottom hull to help keep board speed high in marginal conditions
  • Rocker: High rocker line that allows softening big landings and makes the Boom ideal for both kite park and cable park riding.
  • Bottom Sheet: Liquid Force Grind Base for unsurpassed durability.

Echo

From competition to creative free riding Brandon Scheid undeniably is the landlord of the current wakestyle movement. Brandon has been working with master shaper Jimmy Redmon to create a board that will both lock on a slider and deliver explosive pop off the water. The new 2020 Echo exceeds the standard and will help take your riding to the next level.

The LF Flex Tip technology tapers into the channelled profile wood core to allow the tips to flex deeper on presses without sacrificing the centreboard stiffness required to generate pop and handle hard landings. For 2020, we replaced the grind base with a satin PMU bottom sheet. Lightening the board without sacrificing significant durability, the PMU makes the Echo even more efficient and snappy on the water. All of this is blended with our proven triple concave to fluted channel bottom contour, high rocker, and sandwich construction — a recipe for success in the purest wakestyle circles.

Features

  • Core: Computer profiled 100% wood core.
  • Inserts: M6 inline inserts for ultimate strength and multiple stance options.
  • Channels: Flex tip channels allowing for locked and more controlled presses.
  • Bottom Shape: Fluted channel hull design for edge control, water release and speed enhancing limited base contact on rails and sliders.
  • Bottom Sheet: Matte PMU bottom sheet helps save weight while still lending tons of durability.
  • Construction: Liquid Force’s exclusive Liquid Rail, the most durable sidewall construction available.

Benchmark

There is no question that a 10-time World Champion knows what is needed in a board to reach the highest of the level of competition. Gisela Pulido and her father Juan Manuel, have been perfecting her perfect ideal twin tip for years. With the added knowledge of Liquid Force’s extensive board engineering team, Gisela finally says the board of her dreams has been created.  This aggressive shape with a medium flex profile is perfect for all riders looking for an all-around board that’s tuned to eat up some chop, but also deliver some serious pop.

The Benchmark incorporates a rocker line, flex pattern, and outline that our International Team Rider Gisela Pulido fines perfect for her aggressive riding style.    At Liquid Force Kites, we make boards for people, which is why this shape and design is entirely unisex (like all of our boards).  While the shape was designed for the top-level rider in the world, it at the same time forgives enough to inspire progression. Utilising the same core profiling technique as the Echo, the Benchmark has been created with a solid wood core that has a single concave to channel tips that smooths out the harsh chop and make upwind pointing directly. Rounding out the board is a sandwich glass construction and capped with Liquid Rail for durability.

Features

  • Core: Computer profiled 100% wood core
  • Insert: M6 inline inserts for ultimate strength and multiple stance options
  • Flex: Medium flex profile.
  • Rocker: All-round rocker
  • Shape: Single concave to channelled hull design for precise control and upwind projection

Galaxy Foil Board

Dedicated hydrofoil performance, combined with revolutionary construction, highlight the Liquid Force Galaxy. Some may argue that the board is not as important as the foil. However, we believe that the interaction between; board, foil and rider are critical to the performance and experience of riding a hydrofoil. No detail was overlooked or compromised in the design and engineering of the Galaxy Hydrofoil Board. The Galaxy’s precision-engineered details offer the highest performance characteristics for your hydrofoil. A forgiving outline, combined with a unique forward placed double concave hull design, allows for easy on water tracking when starting as well as during planned, or even unexpected touchdowns. The bevelled rail design aids in heeled over, chop deflection, keeping the board in line with the foil trajectory.

The “feel-good” concave deck affords the rider detailed control via the ability to translate foil feedback more rapidly and precisely. Rider adjustability and set up preference is essential to us. The Galaxy affords this with the use of a track mounting system for dialling in the placement of the foil, a full-coverage comfort EVA deck pad complete with kick tail for the strapless rider, and performance-tuned insert configuration options for; single strap, inline double straps, or triple strap configurations. All this in a unique moulded lightweight and durable honeycomb carbon construction that is proprietary to Liquid Force.

Launch Foil Set

New for 2020 Liquid Force has perfected the entry-level setup for hydrofoiling. While we’re the first to make hyrdrofoiling accessible to people with the invention of  Foil Fish, we have since learned a lot about the learning curve for this sport. The first step to make foiling easy to learn is to have a short mast, which is why this set includes a 24 inch (60 cm) aluminium alloy mast.  A shorter mast makes a foil easier to control and gives comfort to newcomers as they learn to handle a board that now has a metal extrusion hanging beneath it.   In the learning stages, you will find that you will breach the water a lot as you learn to hone in on the sweet spot.  A shorter mast helps to speed up the learning process and get you foiling faster.

The next step is to have a wing that achieves lift at slower speeds, which is why this set comes complete with the new Carbon Composite Flite 120 front wing.  The Flite 120 shape is perfect for beginners as it has a lot of “yaw” stability, or in laymen’s terms, stability from side to side.

If the foil is stable from side to side, the rider can focus on learning how to bring the foil up and down out of the water without having to worry about falling off their heel or toe side edge.  This combination of the short mast and 120 wings are now our go-to for any kiteboarder or wakeboarder learning to get into the sport.  As with all Liquid Force entry-level sets, we wanted to be as price conscience as possible when developing the Launch Foil Set.  This set comes complete with our budget-friendly aluminium collar, straight 78 cm aluminium fuselage and an injected carbon polymer rear tail wing.

Let us help you blast off into the foiling world with our new Launch Foil Set.

Glider Carbon Wingset

The ultimate search for the infinite glide starts with finding the right-wing for the task. Taking design inspiration from the Thruster wing, the Glider scales up this super stable shape and gives it more curvature through the middle. This unique design tweak delivers ultimate pumping power and maximum glide in any conditions. The result is a wing that will have you pumping out to sea to catch that next roller or cruising at insanely slow speeds behind the kite.

This wing is for the rider who enjoys bigger wings that have strong unilateral stability and want the ability to pump if need be.  Whether it be marginal wind, marginal waves, or a choppy day behind the boat, the Glider will turn any session into a full-on hydrofoil fun fest.

Flite Carbon Wingset

If you want to take a flight, you are going to need the right tools.  The Flite wing is perfectly tuned to take you from your first water starts to your first jibes. With a design that delivers strong yaw stability and easy-lift, this wing is perfect for beginners who are learning how to hydrofoil or looking to ride at slower speeds.

Impulse Carbon Wingset

Created in collaboration with Cloud IX Surf Foils the Impulse wing set confidently crosses kite, surf and wake hydrofoiling. Designed to provide rapid lift and long glide, along with a wide speed and wind range. The Impulse will take your freeride kite hydrofoiling to the next level. Allowing more time for tack and jibe transitions, constant wing engagement on jump landings, and the ability to drop a size kite or get out in even lighter wind conditions than ever imagined.

These same design attributes make the Impulse ideal for mounting on a hydrofoil compatible SUP or prone surfboard. Efficient and smooth controlled lift, along with the ability to generate glide by pumping the wing, keeps swell energy connectivity easy and manageable. This magic can be translated behind the boat where the Impulse excels at sustained hydrofoiling on both the primary and secondary wakes with or without the rope!

Thruster Carbon Wingset

The Thruster wing set has been developed in collaboration with Matt Wheeler, master hydrofoil expert and engineer, in Hood River, Oregon USA. This collaboration has brought to life a unique wing design that provides extended range and stability for rapid lift and stability at speed.

If you are in search of the pinnacle of freeriding performance, look no further. The Thruster wings will keep you boosting and carving at high speeds, without sacrificing stability.
