The SBOW’09 is the definitive freeride kite- it is as at home wave riding as it is freestyle riding and high-air jumping. Starkites’ highly innovative research and development ensures that the SBOW’09 is unrivalled in its class.
The SBOW’09 is the leading dynamic kite of the year. With fine-tuning features that allow the rider to customize it to their own style, this highly stable and reactive kite is the perfect progression tool for riders of all levels.
Stability, Reaction Rate and De-power
With its high stability profile, this kite is perfect to help riders progress without needing to concentrate too hard on their kite piloting. The highly reactive and fast PROBAR09 helps you intuitively feel where the kite is positioned and if it needs power adjusting or quicker flying. It allows you to spend more time concentrating on your board riding skills and building up to your tricks. With its instant response and huge de-power range it will give you the confidence to enjoy riding at your own pace. The SBOW’09 has 100% de-power wherever the kite is positioned in the wind-window!
Due to its enhanced profile, the SBOW’09 is the perfect and versatile all-conditions kite. Power consistency is optimised in order to stabilise kite behaviour-especially in gusty winds. It also means that the kite is more forgiving if you make mistakes while flying. The enhanced profile also creates less drag so riders can enjoy much easier upwind riding; and increased pop, so riders can do higher jumps and enjoy longer hang time sensations. The SBOW’09 makes progression during each session a very simple undertaking.
Safe and easy Re-launch
Safety is our core principle at Starkites. With this in mind, the SBOW’09’s re-launching capabilities are as simple as it gets: you just need to pull one of the leader lines a few centimeters, and it will re-launch the kite.
