Flysurfer News:Flysurfer Speed3 - The Ultimate Flying Machine
Never before has a kite been the measure of things in lightwind performance and hang-time for three years in a row. FLYSURFER has managed this impressively with the SPEED2. However, our own high standards made it even tougher to top this wonder-kite!
After an 24-month-long development time, the adoption of new construction software, endless hours of overtime, countless tests all over the globe as well as reeling in Andreas Hanrieder to complete our development team, FLYSURFER has once again managed to raise the bar with the SPEED3.
First things first: Due to the unparalleled low-end of the SPEED2 in combination with its other renowned features, it was a giant hurdle to design a worthy successor to the SPEED2. The development team surrounding Armin Harich allowed for no setbacks in handling, depower or agility.
Top priority was: The SPEED3 must be absolutely on par with the SPEED2 in lightwind performance, and gain significant ground in the areas of agility, depower and speed… Armin Harich: „It is our opinion that we have been successful without exception!“
Flight Characteristics & Safety
The SPEED3 turns more tight and faster even in the lightest winds…
Thanks to the “Triple Depower Technology“, contact to the kite is always available even when fully depowered. Numerous optimizations to the profile have resulted in a more effective and direct depower effect. The already large wind-use range has expanded again. The legendary hang-time has just gotten even sweeter with more jump height, and thanks to the increased agility, kiteloops now belong to the SPEED3’s repertoire. Whether old-school, big-air, racing or lightwind cruising - the SPEED3 sets new standards and redefines performance.
Naturally, stability also had to be considerably enhanced in order to make the gains in agility and depower controllable – no easy task, which the FLYSURFER developers have fully realized and was successfully adopted to the SPEED3.
The flag-out function of the kite also demanded a complete redesign to cover the increased wind range. The tapered front edge permits exceptional flagging out safety with only 4 lines ensuring good relaunch.
The SPEED3 will have its World Premiere (final prototypes) at the PKRA Kitesurf Worldcup in St. Peter-Ording and pre-orders will start to be delivered in September. Of course the SPEED3 will also be available in the ultra light DELUXE-EDITION.
All SPEED3 kites come “Ready to Fly” including the INFINITY CONTROL BAR.
