Features

  • 3struts

    3 Struts

    The 3-strut kite design has proven itself since the day Blade introduced it in 2008, enhancing the responsiveness and turning speed for any size kite.

  • lightwind

    Light Wind Stability

    A unique wingtip shape, along with the profile at the tips, allows this kite to stay stable in light winds regardless of its size.
  • reflex

    Reflex Relaunch

    Whether the kite dives onto the water or tumbles through the waves, it doesn’t matter. The exclusive kite design forces the wingtips out of the water and to the edge of the window. Virtually no work is needed to get back up and riding.
  • 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.
  • 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.

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-Teijin-Thumb-A-01i

    Teijin Techno Force

    Our top of the line Techno Force canopy material has been a mainstay of our product line for 6 years and has proven to be superior to anything else on the market.
  • Blade-Construction-LEClosingSeam-Thumb-A-01i

    LE Closing Seam

    The LE seam is sealed with three layers of stitching, double layered Insignia Tape reinforcement and a final protective Dacron seam.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Designer's notes

Who was the Tiny Beast designed for?
The Tiny Beast is great for anyone who wants to use a kite in a wind that is 13 knots and up, but it was mainly designed for kids who weigh between 30kg-55kg. It is the best kite to get you started at an early age.

What makes the Tiny Beast different from other small kites?
Small sized kites are mostly designed to perform well in high winds. When riding in light winds, they are usually unstable and difficult to relaunch.
The Tiny Beast is designed to fly well in light winds, providing the rider with great stability and effortless relaunch.

What is the difference between a small sized Trigger and the Tiny Beast?
In addition to the performance difference that is mentioned above, there are 2 main differences:
First is the shape of the structure. In the Tiny Beast, the leading edge is much curvier, which allows for a much easier relaunch in lighter winds.
Second is the profile near the wingtip. By increasing the profile in the wingtip of the Tiny Beast, it doesn’t lose any power while in the edge of a window. This change keeps him up and powered in all conditions.
