The 2022 Eleveight FS: Next-Level Freestyle/Freeride Performance.
Our freestyle flagship kite, the Eleveight FS, has a revolutionary Open-C design fine-tuned for staggering freestyle and big air maneuvers.
Version 4 of our radical freestyle and big air flagship has arrived. The FSeries activates explosive high-performance characteristics allowing you to boost higher, loop harder, and pop more aggressively than ever before. It is tailored to the needs of professional riders while ensuring that the performance is accessible even to less advanced riders too. The Open-C design has all the traits of a genuine C-kite such as direct control, explosive lift, and a wide angle-of-attack that comes into play when looping the kite or popping out of the water. It is the most progressive kite design a rider can choose. Still, the kite is incredibly stable, covers a huge wind range, and swiftly takes the rider upwind.
To improve this iconic kite even further, we implemented a few subtle as well as a few more daring changes into this year’s version. Most noticeably, we reworked the canopy curve, improving the load distribution. This modification results in more raw power, especially when sheeted in or during air-time. By introducing a completely new lightweight trailing edge with anti-vibration patches and new load diffusers, we not only enhanced the longevity of the kite by eliminating canopy flutter, but more importantly, we also managed to shave off a significant amount of weight. Version 4 is more agile and dynamic than ever before. This effect is enhanced by the new alignment of our strut tips, which reduces tip drag. Looping a kite has never been more accessible and fun. Furthermore, we shifted the bridles closer to the wingtips to increase the direct bar feedback, giving riders a better feel for their kite, especially during maneuvers such as handle passes. Don’t limit yourself, tear down your inner demons and get flying with the FS.
