Hook V3 II
With the new Hook, we achieved just this. The best part of it is that you get a kite that is super comfortable to ride with a huge wind range. It’s quick and playful through its turns and perfect for most conditions.
Every size has a unique design. In the bigger picture, the sizes below 10 meter are made for stronger winds while the 10m and up are made for a bit less wind creating more lift with lower speed. As a plane, lift is generated by wing profile and speed. Bigger kites have less speed than smaller kites and therefore require a different wing profile and shape to get more height.
The new Hook is a playful ride to cruise around, jump high and enjoy the view. - Never Stop going higher!
The Hook has been designed with maximum progressive performance in mind. The Hook's high AR frame delivers the speed you need to boost big. Its forward speed is easily translated into huge floaty jumps and its smooth controls allow for buttery landings.
The Hook features a 4 point, single pulley bridle. This makes the kite smooth, highly responsive while it offers a feeling of effortlessness in its controls. Even depowered all the way the kite remains responsive and quick to turn, combined with PLKB’s renowned kite stability you’ll feel safe and in control even in the most demanding conditions.
The larger Hooks are amazing in light winds. They are light and well balanced so that they will fly in even the lightest breezes, perfect for riders who want to constantly practice. Thanks to the high Aspect Ratio the Hook has a high flying speed and great upwind drive, making it an excellent hydrofoil option.
The Hook will get you going earlier and will let you stay out longer. Thanks to the specially constructed leading edge and efficient bridle, the Hook has an exceptionally large and effective wind range. It has great low end power, without sacrificing any of the high end performance.
