Advance (Issue #14 - Mar /Apr '05)
Years of experience in the paragliding field have inspired Advance to bring their expertise to the tube kite market. They launch with the Skorpio, a kite hyped to satisfy a wide variety of riding styles from advanced wave riding to big air and wake style that's also stable enough for beginners. The kite has a re-power system that keeps the power on through the lulls, also adding stability. A subtle reshape alongside careful stitching patterns allow better airflow over the kite while helping it to hold its shape. As well as neat additions like selfrecovery handles, the Skorpio also comes with the increasingly crucial fifth line. Sizes: 6, 10, 13.7, 16.5, 19.7m.
