Description

DESIGN VISION

The FSeries is a high-performance kite addressed to advanced riders that seek the thrill of radical freestyle tricks and staggering big airs. The four line Open-C design is paired with a high aspect ratio, low sweep, and short bridles. Loaded up, it generates a massive pop followed by plenty of line slack and travel. Hooked-in, riders will experience an explosive lift.

By shifting the turning axis towards the wingtips we achieved the perfect balance between turning speed and power development. The FS’ piloting is swift and direct but unleashes raw energy in loops. Even with the focus on performance and radical maneuvers, the FS does not lack in riding comfort. On the contrary, the kite covers a huge wind range, easily rides upwind and cushions gusts.

High quality is our obligation. The FS is constructed using solely prime grade materials such as the new Techno Force™ X4 Ripstop canopy from Japan and the new Teijin Dacron with high-temperature resin finish, resulting in enhanced durability and performance.

The FS is a true performance powerhouse made to boost your adrenaline and skills to the next level.

    The Eleveight FS kite is a great choice for the active rider that wants to have a very reactive kite. This kite moves fast around the wind window. You can use this quickness to your advantage for explosive boosting and powerful fast looping action. The Eleveight FS is very rewarding if you are willing to fly it actively, but you don’t have to. It is as happy with a park and ride style. Upwind riding is a breeze as the kite has the ability to fly forward in the wind window and allows a good angle to ride upwind. So how is the range and power of the FS? I have to say that the FS will need a bit more active flying at the low end than for example the RS, but the low end is there, you just have to work for it a bit. If you are looking for ultimate low end power and easiest relaunch, go with the RS in the Eleveight lineup. The FS on the other hand has advantages on the upper end of the wind range. Relaunch is pretty easy especially when windy but it will need a bit more technical abilities from you on the very low end. The official product description as you see it above is absolutely correct. I had the luxury to ride RS and FS extensively over the last few month and found the FS to be my perfect weapon to go really big and continuing my learning path to more aggressive loops.
