Jekyll

Jekyll Overview

This 6th Generation Jekyll is without question the fastest and most performance oriented kite Gaastra has ever built. We improved the steering by using a straight tip shape and thicker diameter of the LE in the tip area. It turns super fast and flies through the window all the way to the extreme edge giving it insane upwind abilities. The extremely light bar pressure gives an effortless feedback to the rider. It has a very efficient de-power that gets rid of 85% of the power when sheeted out while keeping the steering characteristics alive. Even when depowered, the Jekyll still obeys your commands. The huge sweet spot gives this kite the widest wind range in our line up.
The Jekyll is a dedicated 4 Line SLE kite, but comes with the option to use a 5th line. The 5 strut skeleton in fully segmented in construction, making the kite super rigid even in toughest conditions.

STEERING FEEDBACK: ultra direct and fast
BAR PRESSURE: extreme light
TURNING STYLE: turns rapidly around the inner tip

What is Technically changed to JEKYLL5 and why?

straight tips for more direct steering behavior.

more area in tips achieves better steering.

increased diameter of tip LE improves axial angular impulse for more rigid feeling on bar
all new Bridles and Steering line settings to achieve the best aerodynamics in every situation

new LE attachment point in stronger but lighter construction
kevlar reinforcements at LE for highest abuse resistance
new and more boxy tip shape for better steering at depowered conditions
new TWIN SEAM technology by stitching the LE. increases the LE strength by 25%.
new HPX Dacron: super light, but extreme durable and strong. makes the LE by 25% stronger (exclusive by Gaastra)
new LTE Canopy: 30% more tearproof, due to double ripstop and special coating process
refined TE shape and tension. we tension the TE on a shorter distance (5% of responding cord) and balanced the scallop between the inner struts to keep it silent with less drag
segmented struts for a more accurate profile adjustment which results in a cleaner sail close to the LE area
