Best kite designer, Peter Stiewe, has been busy developing a new concept over the last year that he likes to call 'Twister Tech тм: A new twist on performance. In the search for ever faster, tighter turning and lighter bar pressure, he developed an entirely new leading edge construction that will premiere on their 09 Nemesis HP. Twister Tech тм allowed him to blend the turning performance and direct handling of C kites with the hang-time, stability and aggressive power delivery that the Nemesis HP is famed for. The unique ability of a Twister Tech тм equipped leading edge to react to steering input by the independent rotation of individual leading edge segments allows you to use much more of the kite's canopy to generate turning response, not just the wing-tip sections. Then, because your steering input is transmitted more effectively into the canopy, kites equipped with Twister Tech тм deliver faster turn initiation and hold a tighter turning circle with less bar input. The integration of Twister Tech тм into the Nemesis HP’s ‘Cuben Equipped’ leading edge delivers unbelievable turning speed and responsiveness, while retaining all of the speed, stability, jumping and hang-time performance. Look out for our exclusive scoop on Best's development next issue after spending a couple of days with Peter Stiewe.
