Flexifoil Proton 2012 Overview


Read on to find out more about why the Proton deserves a place in every quiver...

Flexifoil presents the Proton, a natural evolution from last year's model. Aimed squarely at freerider and waveriders, the Proton offers easy relaunch, predictable flight, stability and quick turns, giving you everything you need to take on the waves or simply cruise across the flats with comfort.

An exceptional all-rounder that is suited to riders of every level, you can be sure that the stability, predictability and responsiveness that this kite offers will give the headstart you need to concentrate on those board skills, be it in the barrel of a wave or simply tacking those first few runs straight out of school.


Developed from a starting point of excellence, and modelled through the skills and experience of the Flexifoil design team, with influence from one of the world’s finest team of riders, the Proton is an incredible technical achievement.

Stability and Predictability
The Proton has been designed to maximise stability through a naturally ‘nose-up’ position that wont fall from the sky unexpectedly. Furthermore, the powerful profile, coupled with mid-aspect ratio provide a balanced bar pressure making the kite very forgiving and easy to feel. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, you’ll find the Proton the perfect confidence boost to develop your skills.

Versatility in Performance
The Proton’s solidity in its power make it great for freestyle tricks, whilst sharp depower and snappy turning make the kite great in waves. An overall reliable performance with predictable flying characteristics make it a superb free-riding kite, rounding the Proton off as the ultimate in versatility.

Safety First
Your safety is a top concern, consequently, the Proton continues the use of Flexifoil’s persistently successful primary release system present on all water kites. Capable of killing 90% of the power in one swift action, you can be confident on the water at all times. In addition, colour coded lines are used to ensure simple and safe setup, as well as the option of the 5th line for added safety and self landing.

Thorough Testing Reinforcing Quality
Flexifoil’s new Leading Edge construction standards have surpassed previous inflation test results by almost 40%, and with crash testing completed in the Sahara desert, you can be sure that you’re flying a kite suitable for even the worst beginners!

Exceptionally Intelligent Design
The Proton’s rigid strut system creates a stronger, more accurate and neater kite than ever before, adding to the rigid feel and excellent bar feedback. The diameters of the struts have also been carefully considered to ensure adequate stiffness and their positioning has been optimised to produce uniform pressure throughout the kite and maximise aerodynamic performance.
Strength is built throughout the kite thanks to the Dacron cage protecting high stress and wearable areas. Meanwhile, leading edge Kevlar/Neoprene reinforcements have been used to protect every circumferential seam with wear patches placed on any potential wear points near the toggles to maximise protection when in contact with the beach.
The Proton’s aerofoil is designed to provide powerful boost, good low-end performance, lots of depower and make the kite resistant to back-stalling by using an aerofoil that will naturally “nose-up” when the lines go slack.

Clever Features Inspired by You
We aim to make your life as simple as possible; our E-Z Inflation single point system means you have less work to inflate the kite. For this year’s kites, Flexifoil has also included wingtip dump valves on each wing tip to make packing down easier and quicker. Little changes here and there mean you’re first on the water and last out.
