The Goods...

For an in depth look at the new Flite, have a watch on the right, as Head Designer, Ross Harrington walks you through the features and design characteristics.

Still not sold? Fair enough. Check out the independent reviews from the guys at XL Kites. The Florida panhandle is legendary for consistent light winds, so we are pretty sure these guys know their light wind kites!

XL has done a great review of the Flite along with 4 other high end light wind kites. Viewable on the left!

The Deal Maker

If you aren't sold by now, check out the awesome deal XL Kites is offering in celebration of their stoke for the Flite.

Enter Flitewins in the coupon field for 10% off. Feel free to add one of our Origin boards for a steal at only $300!

If you want your kite with below bar trim, add a Freeride or Fusion bar for just $99 when you visit the Ocean Rodeo Store!

Shopping on a Budget?

First generation Flites are on sale for $1249 USD complete with bar while supplies last.

You're over the line here. Talk up your kites all you want, but impugning XL's motives with zero evidence because they don't like your kite the most is whiny, petulant, and makes you sound like an jerk. Go back to saying good things about Core -- that's fine -- but please stop insulting people's integrity just because they don't agree with you.

Why should he give the business :cash: to the importer of Core who is my friend from my town

The testimonial from his 4 awesome average Joe riders :

The pull is......... fantastic
Turns really fast....as fast has all the other 17m2 tested

Neat kite....pulls really good...i stayed upwind easy....turns fast....fun

Love everything about it...gets me upwind like crazy....turns fast

Hard to believe it turns so well on such small bar
Like the pull....nice flying kite

Just listening to them with their excitement and enthusiasm about the 19 shows the clear LW winner

Just my 19 cents
P.S. When summer heat hits....you will all need a bigger kite than a 17


Wow.

last time I checked they said these were all great kites.... I spoke on the phone with XL about buying a kite and they were very helpful. We talked about the three kites that appeal to me. The Flite , Turbine , and Cab. Never did I get did I get a sense they were steering me toward one specific kite. Performance , price , bar , low end are my bigest concerns. In the end its up to the consumer to decide. Its hard to find good info on gear. I will take this format over mag reviews and company claims anyday. As a business owner and kiter my hat is off to the guys at XL, for smart business and fair testing IMO...

Hey SupaEZ,
maybe you are right... but have you tried all these 4 kites in their 2014 version?

Supa ez has got his panties in a bunch again. Thankfully I'll never need a kite that big, but if I did I would never look at Core because of his constant whining. Nothing against Core, look like nice kites, but having Superez being the unofficial banner boy for the brand has completely turned me off to Core. Similar to Chris a few years ago and his pro Epic posts. Get a life ez.

For my part, I think that they were amazed by the OR Flite... some of them said it's BY FAR their favorite kite. I was heading to buy a 2014 Turbine (witch they discribe as an excellent kite)...but they seem so excited by the Flite, that I am now considering this option. They sell both of these two kites, by the way.

Thanks for the good work XL!
