Description

The Convert bow kite is a reflection of the people who do our sport. Rugged, with a sense of ease. The Convert is simply the easiest and most secure way to get yourself up and riding in the shortest amount of time, with the least amount of hassles.

The Convert is a full scale Bow kite from leading edge to trailing edge. This design delivers an incredibly wide wind range, stable easy handling and perhaps the most important feature on any kite ..... an enhanced relaunch function that is second to none.

Relaunch on Command

The Convert’s relaunch capability is so easy that your hands never have to leave the control system. By simply pointing the end of the control system towards the kite, the wing tip will rise off of the water and launch the kite into the sky. Unlike other relaunch methods, The Convert allows you to decide when to launch the kite and which direction it goes into the air. Its simple... and it keeps the control in your hands... where it should be.

Two of the elements credited for the Convert’s amazing relaunch are: The curved shape of the leading edge and the swept wing tips. Together they allow the kite to “unstick” by reducing contact to the water or snow when the leading edge is face down. The constant curvature of the leading edge allows the kite to easily roll onto a wing tip and lift off the water.

The Bow kite bridle is also responsible for allowing you to choose the direction you would like to launch the kite. This clearly puts the Convert in a class of its own amongst a sea of hybrid kites which don’t allow this function. This important function becomes an added safety feature when your kite is sitting next to an obstacle like rocks, a pier, other riders or swimmers.

For example: if you want to lift the right facing wing tip just point the right side of the control system directly at the kite and hold until the wing tip rises off of the water. When the kite launches you can easily control how fast or how slow you’d like it to fly. If you want to speed up the relaunch process you can always just grab a leader line instead, flip the kite on its side and shoot it up into the sky. The Convert’s easy relaunch sets a new standard in kite control. Simple. Fast. And at your command.

Durability

A new robust construction with transitional strut reinforcements and higher strength materials in the durability prone areas.

The Convert tackles durability with a tough Dacron leading edge, struts, trailing edge and wing tip areas. These areas transition into the canopy with transitional strut reinforcement materials, creating a solid framework around the canopy.

Features

Sprint

Our single point inflation system. You can easily inflate the kite by connecting the pump to a single valve.

Override 2

The ability to depower on demand by just pushing the control bar away from the rider.

Powerdrive 2N1 S

The Convert comes with our versatile Powerdrive 2N1 S control system. The 2N1 S control system allows you to ride in either the 2:1 pulley mode or the 1:1 mode with the pulleys disabled.
