Peter Lynn Escape 2013

Postby -lars- » Sun Feb 17, 2013 11:34 am

Escape your limitations
It is time for the next generation! The Peter Lynn development team further fine-tuned the performance of the highly praised Escape. The next generation Escape is redesigned to provide you with perfect sessions and give you the confidence to bring your kiteboarding to the next level.

We have had valuable feedback from schools, beginners and pro’s which have resulted in this new and improved iteration of the Escape. Like the original, the Escape is a 4-strut SLE (Supported Leading Edge) all-rounder with a medium aspect ratio. It has been improved on some critical points, making it even more user-friendly and durable.

As it is tested in the rough elements of the North Sea the Escape performs in whatever conditions mother nature throws at you, from the most washed up, choppy, gusty and challenging conditions to the most ideal tropical island breezes.

Comfort and progression

The Escape is hands down one of the most comfortable and easy to use kites out there for beginners and intermediate riders. Next to that, its exceptionally good performance will also let expert riders get more out of their sessions and progress fast, the Escape is that versatile!

A balanced mix of light weight and stronger materials has resulted in a lower weight of the kite and adds to responsiveness and overall control.

With over 40 years of kite building experience at Peter Lynn, we know kites. You can count on the Peter Lynn Escape to put a smile on your face, regardless of your level or style. Don’t take our word for it, check it out yourself!

Does the leading edge have a little concave in it or is it an illusion?

The kite looks nice and clean.

@Bigdog, that's right! It's called concave leading edge. Peter Lynn has a patent on that....

I remember the phantom had that and maybe the venom? Makes sense for a 4 strut LEI to give that center area some relief from collapse.

The bomba was the first one with a ton of that concave. Its been in a few arcs to some extent but that fat little kite had it as a prominent aspect of the design.

Phantom is a pretty straight looking high aspect ribbon from what I remember.

Pretty sure my old 12 phanotom-1 had enough cc that laid flat you could see it. I forgot about the bomba!
