The Sculp:

The new 2023 Sculp is a do-it-all kite with a sporty feel. It is a true allround performer across multiple disciplines. Whether you like old school, freestyle, kite loops, big air, or foiling, the new Sculp will deliver.

The Sculp is a Hybrid Delta Bow shape. This shape takes advantage of both Delta and Bow and results in the most versatile and easy to use kite we ever made. From great hangtime to amazing kite loops to unhooked pop and slack with pivotal turning, this shape is a true do-it-all platform.

This year, the Sculp has been fine tuned to work best with the new Savvy bar. The bridle is completely new resulting in lighter bar pressure, more stability and faster turning. The new bridle features two additional attachment points to the leading edge on each side of the kite. The first added line on the leading edge near the wingtip is mostly active during relaunches and the kite virtually wants to fly up by itself in the edge of the window. The second line is attached to the steering flying line and creates another attachment point on the wingtip of the leading edge. This further supports the wingtip structure, so the kite is more stable in gusty conditions and when overpowered. This line also offers two settings of the kite: soft and hard. Selecting the soft setting knot, the Sculp has less bar pressure, turns slower and is more forgiving. On the hard setting knot, the bar pressure increases, the kite is more reactive, feels sportier and turns faster.

With the combination of the new Savvy bar and the new bridle there is constant feedback of the kite felt on the bar, so you are always in complete control of the kite. The Sculp has gradual power delivery and smooth sheeting. The Sculp inspires confidence in kite loops with improved kite loop recovery and more pivotal turning radius.

The low end of the Sculp is absolutely impressive thanks to TerTex material. TerTex replaced Dacron in strategic areas and results in a stronger kite structure, yet lighter overall kite weight. Optimized weight allows for bigger wind range and improved low end performance of the Sculp. The Sculp really does it all.

Hyper:

This kite is hyped up. High performance. Big confidence. Power. Muscle. No hassle. Emotion. Devotion. Addiction. Perfection. Pure power. Rush hour.

High aspect, no respect. Pull to play, accelerate. Oh damn, hit the break, Load up, get high. Let fly. Come down. Retry.

The 2023 Hyper continues to go in the direction of modern big air kites. This year, the Hyper has been fine tuned to work best with the new Savvy bar. The bridle is completely new resulting in lighter bar pressure, more stability and faster turning. The new bridle features one additional attachment point to the leading edge on each side of the kite. The bridle lines connected to these new attachment points on the leading edge are mostly active during relaunch of the kite. The kite virtually wants to fly up by itself in the edge of the window. The newly added bridle lines also further support the wingtip area of the kite, making the Hyper much more stable when overpowered and easier to control in gusty conditions.

With the combination of the new Savvy bar and the new bridle there is constant feedback of the kite felt on the bar, so you are always in complete control of the kite. The Hyper is a powerhouse when sheeting in and has constant pull which is especially rewarding for big air tricks. The boosting is unreal. The Hyper wants to fly. Jumps are super lofty with predictable heli loops and controlled touch downs.

For a five-strut big air kite that is primarily designed for strong wind, the Hyper also has impressive low end thanks to TerTex material. TerTex replaced Dacron in strategic areas and results in a stronger kite structure, yet lighter overall kite weight. Optimized weight allows for bigger wind range and improved low end performance of the Hyper. The fifteen-meter size of the Hyper is specially designed and bridled for the best possible performance in light wind conditions.
