Click here for Thruster Eclipse
The Thruster is Eclipse's competition-ready hybrid kite that feels personal right out of the bag. Dimitri raves: 'You will feel like Superman when you tap the Thruster's insane airtime and gliding ability.
Attempting that new move has never been safer or easier!' The Thruster's freestyle performance earned it a strong reputation as the kite for riders that want it all. If you're interested in jumping higher, riding faster, riding longer or just increasing every level of your riding then the Thruster is for you.
Tweaks for 2009 include super fast re-launch, more pop, more stability and fast turning thought all sizes. A 'hyper-flex' leading edge allows the kite more flex to initiate a turn while maintaining stability. The micro-bridle is a simple set-up offering maximum depower while limiting the risk of any tangles or unwanted bridle issues. The killer graphics don't help the performance but definitely make the kite look good above your head and the beefed up canopy reinforcements with an extra layer of rip-stop fabric reduce the chance of damage from high impact crashes.
The Morph bar is all new and allows adjustments from 35cm to 50cm with ease. Available in two bar sizes: Large; 60-55-50-45 and Medium; 50-45-40-35. The new chicken-loop allows you to pull or push in order to release the CL from your harness. There is a swivel under the bar so you can untwist your lines on the CL instead of reaching all the way up. You can also depower the kite from the CL, so basically everything has been brought very close to you.
