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.
Extended Sweet SpotThe wind range for this kite has been increased, so that you can enjoy maximum kite performance in multiple wind conditions.
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.
Max Flow InflationInflating 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.
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.
Steep Profile ShapeA steeper profile shape has many added benefits, primarily in jumping performance. The deep contours pack the kite with immediate power, providing the required thrust for big aerials.
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.
Wave Performance SettingOptional wave setting positions the kite further in the edge of the window, allowing more depower, better drift characteristics and better upwind performance.
TE wave XAll 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
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.
Blade Max FlowThe all new inflating system makes for a 44% quicker inflation to get you on the water as fast as possible.
Blade 2nd Gen XL PumpNew and improved pump. This new pump is more durable, has less shaft friction, has a built in pressure gauge and a slick design.
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.
MAD3 Airflow SystemThe newly developed one-pump system that lets air flow in and out quicker than ever. Meaning easier packing and at the same time much better durability.
