The 2008 NANO builds on the original NANO concept as a kite designed exclusively for the needs of wave riders, snow kiters, and word travelers. However for 2008 we have refined the NANO so that every rider in every condition will absolutely love this kite, for 2008 the NANO is now our free ride kite.

The NANO is designed to feel like and extension of the riders body. With the NANO the kite always responds to the riders input immediately. The dedicated wave rider will love the speed, stability and re-launch. Still, the NANO offers the free riders enough boost and hangtime to work on the latest moves.

The NANO is designed for riders to maximize its small size, fast movement, and light weight to their advantage. The NANO's increased foil area helps to create a low range never before imagined. The 6m NANO will have you riding with a surfboard in 15 knots!
