The C shape TORNADO III is designed for pro riders who like to ride freestyle. Our goal was to make the best freestyle kite that will have the best performance parameters so needed for pure freestyle tricks. This kite will give the rider almost full de-power ability even that it is C shaped with all of the freestyle performance needed from a kite. Obviously the TORNADO III has 5 line bar. The TORNADO III is designed to reduce the power to a minimum when the kite is set on the center of the wind window or when it is unhooked. All this with unmatched pivot turning for any loop tricks makes the TORNADO III the ultimate freestyle kite.



Cutting design of the TORNADO III is shaped to match with maximum precision the LE curve. All stitches are glued & double stitched to ensure maximum strength under severe loads & crashes.

Leading Edge

The LE of the TORNADO III is designed to give the kite a fast response, especially at the center of the wind window. The curved LE shape design works with the 5 lines or SLE bridle on this HYBRID kite.

Struts Profile

The struts profile design gives the TORNADO III high lift with no bar pressure. This combined with medium AOA (angle of attack) makes the TORNADO III a very fast, responsive kite with full de-power & maximum pivot turning speed.

5-line Bar

As a 5 line C shape kite, we used the 5th line to work on the LE to support it same as any bridle system thus this kite is tuned to work & give the rider almost full depower especially when it is so needed in the wind power zone in the most extreme freestyle tricks.
