Features

  • 5struts

    5 Struts

    A 5 strut design maintains continuous power delivery throughout your jump and ensures kite stability for super loaded tricks.

  • quickturn

    Quick Turn

    All Blade kites are designed to be super reactive and quick turning. This is vital in order to progress as riders and define one's riding style.

  • powerlift

    Power Lift Profile

    A very powerful and efficient profile that lets the kite climb effortlessly and prevents it from coming down quickly.

  • stability

    Unhooked Stability

    The combination of the bridle balance and the power generated by the kite provides the rider high stability while unhooking with the kite.

  • maxflow

    Max Flow Inflation

    Inflating your kites becomes easier and faster with the max flow inflation system. The kite will be ready to go in almost half the time, along with a very gratifying bonus: a higher leading edge pressure that leads to a better kite performance.
  • mbs

    Mini Bridle System

    Arguably one of the shortest bridle systems on any freestyle kite, the system is designed to give exclusive support to the LE without jeopardizing the direct feel one expects in a freestyle kite.
  • wingtip

    Wing Tip Power Turn

    Turning is generated at the wingtip, resulting in continuous and minimal loss of power. This is ideal for big kite loops where the kite’s path of rotation determines kite power efficiency.
  • dynamic

    Dynamic Profile

    The profile shape from the leading to the trailing edge changes as you move from the center out towards the wingtips. This rider-conscious design provides the optimal performance characteristics for the different stages of flight.
  • rpg

    RPG Profile

    Reliable Power Generator Profile. After the initial explosive pop, the unique profile shape continues to deliver consistent power throughout the trick. This enhances stability and control for powered wakestyle tricks.
  • tewavex

    TE wave X

    All new kites have a wavy shaped double ripstop layer. This new shape helps to evenly spread the force between single to double layers which results in less wear overall
  • wingtippowerbalance

    Wingtip Power Balance

    High Score kites are equipped with the new design that gives the wingtip the perfect power at all times. Lots of power in kiteloops while very low power in high winds to keep the kite rock solid.

construction

  • Blade-Construction-BridleAttachmentPoint-Thumb-A-01i

    Bridle Attachment Point

    Internally constructed, the leading edge has twice as many reinforcement patches. That means larger LE impact loads resistance and additional protection from the constant wear and abrasion.
  • Blade-Construction-InsigniaTape-Thumb-A-01i

    Insignia Tape

    We know you like to ride hard. That’s why our kites have 25% more Insignia tape in the delicate areas surrounding the LE. You can be confident this kite will endure even the toughest impact.
  • Blade-Construction-DacronCombo-Thumb-A-01i

    Dacron Combo

    Making a kite both light and strong is key for the kite’s performance. We achieved this by applying a very strong 170g Teijin Dacron for added rigidity in primary areas like leading edge and using lighter 160g Dacron HPE for less vulnerable sections.
  • Blade-Construction-MoldedLEGuards-Thumb-A-01i

    Molded LE Guards

    Our freshly designed molded LE guards are lighter, more aerodynamic and effectively protect the kite from all your outrageous wipeouts.
  • MAD2 trigger

    MAD 2 Air Flow System

    The specially-designed valve pieces on the one-pump system are 100% foolproof. Trust us, you’ll be pumped up and ready to ride in no time!
  • Blade-Construction-MaxFlow-Thumb-A-01i

    Blade Max Flow

    The all new inflating system makes for a 44% quicker inflation to get you on the water as fast as possible.
  • Blade-Construction-Pump-Thumb-A-01i

    Blade 2nd Gen XL Pump

    New and improved pump. This new pump is more durable, has less shaft friction, has a built in pressure gauge and a slick design.
  • Blade-Construction-CorssFiber-Thumb-A-01i

    Cross-Fiber Ripstop

    The all new cross-fiber ripstop is a newly developed double weaved fabric, which provides your kite with double the strength and durability. An additional layer of coating increases the canopy's resistance and prevents it from wearing out.
