Fat Lady 5th GEN
Light Wind ThrillKite size: 17
The Fat Lady has been leading the light wind kiteboarding for over 8 years. She’s got more power than ever, which is delivered with handling that is as crisp and direct as you would expect from a smaller sized kite. And because of her responsiveness, the fat Lady pops even with her considerable size. Combine that with the hangtime of a big kite and you can throw everything from immense old school to low, technical freestyle in the type of wind that you would normally have trouble just staying upwind.

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.
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.
Reflex RelaunchWhether 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.
Mid PivotTurning axis is generated along the LE between center strut and wingtip, resulting in efficient balance between turning speed and power delivery. This is a key performance feature for all-around kites.
Dynamic ProfileThe 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.
Ultra Thin LESurprisingly, the diameter of the LE is nearly the same diameter as the Trigger 12m! This design characteristic drastically reduces drag forces, making this light wind kite impressively quick and responsive.
Bridle Attachment PointInternally 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.
Insignia TapeWe 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.
Dacron ComboMaking 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.
Molded LE GuardsOur freshly designed molded LE guards are lighter, more aerodynamic and effectively protect the kite from all your outrageous wipeouts.
MAD 2 Air Flow SystemThe 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!
Cross-Fiber RipstopThe 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.
