Characteristics

HARDCORE 5 LINE C-SHAPE

The particular feeling of a traditional 5 line kite is unmatchable. A deep C shape with a lean LE create maximum power build-up and minimal pull on the lines during a trick.

POWERFUL POP AND GREAT SLACK DURING TRICKS

The Raw is made for ultimate power built-up and explosive release when you pop from the water. After that, it’s pure silence in which you can focus. Designed with 5-struts, the Raw has a stiff frame that maintains its shape and stability during tricks and megaloops.

DIRECT FEEL AND KITE FEEDBACK

The Raw’s direct feel and kite feedback give the rider a feeling of trust and control that inspire confidence from the first launch. The Raw’s pulley-less bridles and stiff frame make the kite responsive and direct so that you can place it exactly where you want it. The short bridle makes it turn fast and as tight as you want, a great feature to bust out kite loops.

EXPLOSIVE BOOST

The Raw’s freestyle character comes out in its explosive nature. Due to the pure C-shape, the RAW creates a powerful boost for your big air jumps and shoots you into the sky for your megaloops.

5TH LINE SETUP
One-Strut Design
5TH LINE SETUP
The RAW is a hard-core C-kite with a 5th line setup which makes this kite a lot more user-friendly. This feeling is created by the deep C-shape with a lean LE. The LE is supported by the 5th line creating more power and slack throughout your ride. When performing a trick, the 5th line creates maximum power build-up and makes the kite drift with minimal pull on the lines so you can focus on the trick. Furthermore, the 5th line allows for easy depower and relaunch.

REINFORCED LEADING EDGE
One-Strut Design
REINFORCED LEADING EDGE
Multiple reinforcements improve durability. The leading edge and struts are built with the most durable Dacron. The entire span of the leading edge has been reinforced along the seam with double stitches to protect it from getting damaged when crashing or getting a pounding by waves, making it hands down one of the toughest kites on the market. All the bridle attachment points are reinforced with Dacron patches that are stitched on the inside of the leading edge so, even if all the power is channelled through one bridle point, the kite will not get damaged.

FIT ALL VALVE

FIT ALL VALVE
Our kites are equipped with a ‘fit-all-valve’ for easy inflation. The bayonet fitting fits all pumps and the large valve opening makes inflation a breeze. You won’t have to spend hours and hours looking for a pump with the right connection, and will be out on the water in no time.
