Medium aspect ratio
The medium aspect ratio gives the kite a good blend of flying speed and stability.
Specially developed profile
The profile used in the Hornet II gives the kite solid power across a large segment of the wind window. It allows achieving a good speed while keeping the kite very stable and forgiving.
Webbing reinforced cross-vents
The profiles contain carefully placed cross-vents to ensure all the cells of the kite to fill with air quickly improving stability and (re)launch. The cross-vents are reinforced with webbing to minimize the chance of cells ripping after a hard crash.
High quality fabrics
With a smooth 40D Mirai top and bottom skin the deck shape is smooth, light and extremely durable. The 70D profiles ensure maximum durability.
Double stitched bridle points
The profiles are connected to the lower skin with a double seam. This reinforces the bridle points and prevents the kite from tearing in this area when the kite crashes.
Reinforced air intakes
The air intakes are reinforced with webbing increasing durability.
Efficient Dyneema® Bridle
While being very responsive and direct the stitched Dyneema® bridle is kept to an absolute minimum to increase performance and reduce tangles.
Dirt channel & Velcro dirt-outs
Sand and dirt can easily be removed from the kite by using the Velcro dirt-outs in the wingtips. The dirt can move towards the tips via the Dirt channel along the trailing edge.
Velcro bridle loop
The Velcro Bridle loop secures your bridle and prevents it from getting tangled when packing up.
Dyneema® Flying lines
Dyneema® flying lines ensure minimum drag and stretch, making the kite more responsive.
