The lighter weight and quick response are made possible with its 3-strut hybrid plan form.

FX
Freestyle / Crossover

The FX kite is specifically designed for riders that mix hooked and unhooked freestyle tricks, love jumping big and kiteloops.

The world of Freestyle / Crossover kiting has evolved into an exciting genre in our sport. Once a very narrow and technical discipline is now a mix of technical tricks and massive aerial maneuvers, both hooked-in and unhooked. For this, you need a kite with the sensitivity and ‘slack’ when unhooked and the ability to boost a massive hooked-in kite loop.

The FX delivers on these two fronts and more with the power and handling to take your riding seriously.

FEATURES

  • New Freestyle / Freeride bridle design for 2019
  • Three LE bridle performance options
  • No pulley bridle, for a more direct steering input and feedback
  • Pure Profile Panels
  • High Tenacity dacron for enhanced arc stability
  • Explosive pop and hangtime
  • Incredibly quick and nimble handling
  • Excellent line slack for unhooked riding
  • Forward pull and quick recovery for kiteloops
  • Excellent for vertical boosts and hang time
  • Smooth power delivery and excellent depower
  • More drive than a traditional C-shaped kite
  • Predictable handling
  • Good upwind performance
  • Increased canopy reinforcements in the high-stress areas

Drifter
Surf / Freestyle Surf

Specifically designed for kitesurfing in waves and strapless surf freestyle, the Drifter has the ability to engage and disengage its power on command.

While catching a wave you want all the power you need but while surfing, you often want the kite to completely disappear while you surf on your own power. It’s in this moment of pure surfing where you want a kite that ‘drifts’ down the line with you in a stable and predictable way. We dubbed this phenomenon Drift Stability and it is the crucial ingredient in a performance surf kite and this is why the Drifter has no equal.

Features

  • Pure Profile Panels
  • High Tenacity Dacron for enhanced arc stability
  • Refined profiles, arc, and outline for superior power delivery
  • Light bar pressure with direct and responsive steering
  • Great “pop” for strapless freestyle tricks
  • Best slack line drift on the market
  • Excellent for surf freestyle

The Contra’s lightweight 3-strut hybrid design performs incredible things in what used to be known as the unrideable realm. A true light wind performer in any and all riding categories.
