Description

Low aspect ratio 5-line flat kite with One-Pump and 3 struts >> Ultra light in weight, affordable, the Light II is the ideal kite for anyone new to kiting constructed using exactly the same materials as our other models so its not Light in strength or durability.

Relaunch

The Instinct 08 Models are a dream to re-launch, just turn the bar fully to one side and the kite rolls over onto its tip. The rider can either re-launch immediately with the kite downwind and de-powered or allow the kite to work its way to the edge of the wind window, either way the all three models (Light II, Sport II, Edge II) provide a stress free re-launch.

Inflation

All of the 2008 Instincts feature the patented One Pump inflation system, regarded as the most durable and reliable single point inflation system on the market. We won’t bother trying to disrespect the original creators by calling it some over hyped name – we would instead just like to thank Slingshot for bringing the finest (simplest system to the industry).

For the 08 models we have the neoprene socks secured both ends to make it far easier to use whilst improving the protection of the kites sail when rolled up. (2007 were only secured one end) A large dump valve releases air pressure quickly allowing you to pack down as fast as you set up.

Wingtip

Continuous smooth radius wingtip perfected in shape to increase turning speed and aid re-launch yet perfected in size to ensure the kite is balanced to stop any stall possibilities.

Bag

Cleanly designed bag with large volume so its easy to pack in your kite.

New internal bar pocket to separate and protect your kite from the bar.

Extra inner bag to protect your kite. The inner bag is very useful for example if you are travelling with a boardbag you do not always wish to take the main kite bag. But your kite still needs protection so that’s where the separate inner bag made from a robust yet lightweight material helps protect your kite and keep it neat and secure.
