Flysurfer Soul V1 Foil Kite
Olly Bridge's King of the Air entry video, featuring a Flysurfer Soul foil kite, is making waves in the kiting community! Will 2019 be the year of the foil kite at KOTA!? We'll have to wait and see...but foil kites are definitely getting the attention they deserve!
Here's What Flysurfer Has to Say about the Flysurfer Soul V1 Foil Kite:
X-Light / DLX+ Construction
At FLYSURFER Kiteboarding, we blended the SOUL’s construction with lightness and durability. The new X-Light Fabric has the best qualities for maximum performance and impressive longevity. The incredibly lightweight (32g / m²) double-ripstop material is highly tear-resistant as well as airtight, and provides an extremely smooth sail. The leading edge is protected with durable DLX + against dirt and abrasion. This ultra light foilkite is the best travel compagnion. When it comes to materials and components, the SOUL’s is built to last and perform at the highest freeride standards on any terrain. Full Control with Precise Turning Every size’s construction aspect ratio is optimized and trimmed to give you the best foilkite response possible. Trust in the high backstall resistancy blended with smooth power delivery to master your new tricks or simply get going.
The SOUL‘s precise turning with consistant power throughout a loop has been created to give you the ultimate control at any time. Experience Short Lines The SOUL gives you a sublime hydrofoil experience by using short flying lines (from 12-17m, depending on the size), to allow for the fastest maneuvers. This setup enables a more direct feel of the kite and generates less lift, which is perfect for learning a new aspect of the kitesport and adds safety whilst teaching on land or snow. One Line Relaunch The development team created a new outline assuring a superb relaunch of the SOUL.
Safety is a key fact and restarting your kite from to water by pulling one steering line must be similar on any system. The SOUL combines all benefits of a foilkite with the same methodical relaunch of a LEI-Kite to make exercises as simple as possible. Maintenance - Bridle Check The SOUL offers a wide variation of tools for maintenance. The new bridle check can be done by measuring and comparing the black marked lines at the canopy to compensate stretch or shrink of the bridle. The individual levels of the kite are controlled with different ratios by the Mixer and thus influence the angle of attack and the curvature of the profile.
Adjustments after heavy use over years should be done to keep the products performance and ensure a long-term use of the SOUL. Improved Automatic Drainage System Safety is a central matter in the development of our products, and the automatic drainage system is an important component when it comes to trust. The interior and the choice of material of a FLYSURFER closed-cell foilkite is optimized to absorb as little water as possible and, in case of a long wash or windhole, to ensure that it can restart. This feature separates us from the competition, enabling deep water launches and gives the customer confidence to relaunch our kites in the lightest breeze.
