Flysurfer have just released details of the BOOST, their new, high-performance kite. Here's everything you should know from Flysurfer…
“BOOST, the second L.E.I. product line from Flysurfer Kiteboarding has it all. Each size is tuned for extreme performance with double 3D-shaping and pretensioning technology. Pervade the sky with the extremely smooth canopy profile of this IKA registered race kite with Infinity 3.0 control bar and exclusive low-drag flying lines. BOOST yourself to other worlds with explosive lift and endless hang-time.
Aeronautics engineer Andreas Hanrieder did extensive research and testing using modern CFD simulation programs to build this super efficient kite. The BOOST is your L.E.I rocket waiting for lift off. Airstyle, big air, speeding or megaloops, do whatever you want and set new limits.
And everyday can be a kite day… with the BOOST’s innovative adaptive airfoil, the higher aspect ratio and weight reduction on the LW Sizes 15.0 and 18.0, which are aimed at best/optimum light wind performance.”
Range of Use
The Flysurfer BOOST is a highly efficient L.E.I race kite, combining explosive lift, huge hang time and superb upwind ability. Flysurfer took progressive technology and blended it with everyday usability, for sportsmen who love boosting massive airs or racing around courses.
Double 3D-Shape & Pre-Tension Technology
Thanks to this technology we have produced a highly efficient airfoil, which results in unrivaled hang-time and unmatched upwind performance.
High performance with maximum control. No sudden surprises with responsive and intuitive bar-feedback, easy relaunch and high stability even in the strongest gales or gusty inland spots.
Enjoy outstanding light wind performance with the BOOST LW. Optimized weight reduction, higher aspect ratio and the innovative adaptive airfoil technology. This will increase your kiting days and flying experience.
Infinity 3.0 Control Bar
The Infinity 3.0 Control Bar is thinner, lighter and has a new durable and comfy EVA Grip. Equipped with a safe & dependable quick-release incorporating a smooth line untwisting function, sleek winders and with all new low drag kite-lines. Flysurfer is proud to bring you the most efficient flying lines with low drag and maximum breaking loads.
Free Flow Inflation
We had to make pumping easier for those already spoiled by our ram-air foil kites. So we developed a new valve – with a larger opening for increased air intake and easy operation. To complete the system we added a R.E.D Pump (Reduced Effort Device), which differs significantly from normal kite pumps. It is not only smoother and more durable, under high pressure it switches from double hub to single hub, for effortless use.
With the Self Launcher, Flysurfer are offering you a tool to help you solo-launch the BOOST, stress-free. Position the kite at the edge of the wind window, connect the sandbag (included in kite) and place this on the ground. Tension the kite lines and the Self Launcher will release automatically at the right moment, safely solo-launching the kite.
Flysurfer is passionate about kite-racing and for this reason has registered the BOOST kite especially for you. This allows you to attend every official IKA race event in the L.E.I. class.
