Kiteboarding Kites Tests

Naish Shockwave 9m (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:Nice refined bar, but as with most pulley bars it has lots of toggles dangling in front of your eye line and feels heavy. It's a super-stable kite that turns really smoothly. This steadiness and stability means t...

Slingshot Turbo Diesel 10m (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:With the 2:1 depower it isn't too heavy on the arms and turns really nicely. Excellent bar system with easy trimming and suicide leash attachment. The centre lines that run through the cleat did look a little wor...

Peter Lynn Venom 2 13m (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:If you've never flown an arc design before you'll be pleasantly surprised. This kite really can fly itself. We still can't quite get our heads round how good that is. Think of all the times your kite runs away fr...

Peter Lynn Venom 2 13m (2

North Rhino 14m (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:A change in character for the Rhino which was very popular. Much more feline than wild animal now, and North have come up with a real gem for fast riders who want a kite that's going to behave, be quick and respo...

North Rhino 14m (2006)

Naish Raven 14m (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:This falls into the higher aspect category of kite offering constant power, good response to rider input, is quick to powerup in light winds but can also be a bit of a handful. Good for the heavier rider that nee...

Naish Raven 14m (2006)

RRD Type Hi-R 13m (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:This kite is like a shadow. Slick in looks and in behaviour, the power delivery is smooth and controllable and the kite is quick, nimble and predictable. We like the option of the RRD's zip to depower the kite fu...

RRD Type Hi-R 13m (2006)

Airush Lift 14m (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:If you fancy yourself as a bit of a gangster and cruising around with a powerful weapon attached to your waist, then this is for you. Packing a punch, with bags of...err, lift... is what this kite is all about. M...

Airush Lift 14m (2006)

Wipika Indy 13.5m (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:An absolute weapon. We have to admit that we didn't try this in as much wind as some of the others as we didn't have it as long, but one thing's for sure...it's got power. It's quite smooth though. Loops and turn...

Wipika Indy 13.5m (2006)

Flexifoil Fusion 15m (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:The Fusion is uncomplicated and won't give you any nasty surprises. Slightly lower aspect than the other kites we had but you can really tune it to be a freestyle machine or slow it down for the less advanced; wo...

Flexifoil Fusion 15m (200

Takoon Nova 2 9m (2006)

KITEWORLD SUMMARY:All the problems with last year's Nova seem to have been ironed out. The forgiving feeling and handling of the Nova 1 were actually great for intermediate riders or anyone wanting to get into the waves. While it ...
