Gin Kiteboarding has officially acquired Flymaax!
Our involvement with ram air kites and freeride was already established about two years ago, but we were missing something. We are constantly looking for new challenges here at Gin Kiteboarding, and our Athletes and Ambassadors are not the only ones passionate about competing. We were then all looking for a challenge.
At that time, World Sailing announced that kitefoiling would be an Olympic sailing discipline. Entering that sector would have been a huge asset for us and would have opened many opportunities. Our new challenge was just there, right in front of us. We would produce the Formula 1 of kites.
To carry out our ambition, we chose to rely on the world’s most performant existing kite brand on the market; Flymaax. That strategic choice was made to step into the market with the best possible foundation and keep developing and improving the products as far as possible with the help of our internal engineers and our race Athletes.
As a result, not only did we strongly enter the racing sector, but thanks to the high-end level in race kite development achieved, we have been able to apply those technological advances to more widely accessible kites, resulting in uniquely performing freeride leisure products, such as our iconic Instinct HB. It is a freerace kite, combining the best of the racing and the freeride world. It uses the same technology as the Boom v2 while remaining easy and intuitive to fly.
Now is the time to rebrand our products. The Boom V2 will, from now on, have the Gin Kiteboarding logo, and we look forward to seeing our Formula 1 kites perform with you.
