ALL RIDING STYLES, ANY LEVEL SUPER EASY RELAUNCH SUPER LOW END PERFORMANCE
Our most universal flying machine the Spark offers all-round versatility and power. This true crossover kite covers all aspects of the sport. Masterminded by Urs Hungerbühler, his aerodynamic background and experience has made the Spark very popular with all riders. An amazing kite with HUGE depower that will work in almost any conditions, no matter what your style of riding is. Outstanding low end power and top end stability give extreme lift and hang time while in complete control.
This new concept came completely from scratch. We wanted something that had sportive handling, fast turns and comfortable bar pressure. This is archived by a new outline, area distribution, a newly designed arc that enables highly responsive handling and a profile optimized for easy power management while offering incredible performance at the same time. An optimized trailing edge allows for solid and fast turns, while the durability remains unmatched, but still keeping the kite light. The SPARK 11 and bigger come in a 3 Strut design, for enhanced light wind and low end abilities. All smaller sizes are a 5 strut design for greater stability in higher winds.
