All kites are snowkites. This is a foil kite That resembles designs that have been around for 10 plus years. Little late to the party but still have market share in buggies.

Snowkiting is a discipline not a type of kite!

Look, I wrote a long post about this (really), then I realized I had nothing positive to say.

I do love this video, and thought was far more interesting


Hope the snow is flying and wind is blowing near you, get out and enjoy it.

Craz Z is right any kite can be used for riding snow. Lableling a kite "snowkite" is often viewed by "dyed in the wool" snowkiters as little more than marketing.

However, there are some kites that were concieved as "snowkites" and have been known as such from the beginning. Again as Craz Z points out, some have been around for 10yrs. The suitabilty of a given kite for snow used depends largely on the environment, the type of snow use and the users's demands. "Run what you brung." Usually works for most people in a winter kiting situation :D

Some kites are better suited for a wide range of snow use than others simply by design, features like long leaders to reduce risk of edge slash, colored lines, flaps in the dust outs for example, make some kites better suited than others. But kites without those stock features, can be easily adapted.

The Leopard looks to be a higher AR than the Frenzy. More like a Summit or Montana 8. We'll get a demo here at some point when the size want for our demo quiver becomes available and see how the kite performs. We have the Lynx in demo and it's a pretty sweet wing.

Really IMO getting the most out of snowkiting relies as much on you skill set as a kiter, skier or snowboarder and the rest of your equipment (skis etc.) as it does on the type of kite you have.

just got back from the beach and my first fly of the 13.5m peter lynn leopard and ive got to say the kite has impressed me. the wind was pretty much none existent topping out at about 5mph but I even managed to get some air in the buggy.!! by comparison, I brought my 18m charger and attempted to fly that. to start with it was nearly impossible to get the charger inflated but once I did get it flying, all I could do was very slowly cruise the beach. on the other hand, the leopard got straight into the air and was fully inflated within seconds and once I managed to get my technique sorted, I was getting some small sidewinder airs. I cant wait to fly it in 10mph winds to see how much hangtime I can get out of it
