Beginner All-Round Kites (Intermediate Freeride)
A beginner kite is stable & simple. They are by far the best kites to begin your kitesurfing journey with as they are the easiest to fly while you become acquainted to the the basics of kitesurfing and build your skills & experience.
A good beginner kite should have easy relaunch, good depower range and smooth & predictable flying characterstics. It should have a simple, user-friendly bar with a safety mechanism that makes ejecting instinctive.
If you’re getting into kiting, look no further… The Lithium is probably the best kite for you, a kite that is easy to use but you won’t outgrow quickly. The Lithium is adored by beginners and intermediate riders due to its extremely forgiving characteristics and ease of use. If you’re a rider who enjoys freeriding, tacking upwind, and boosting jumps instead of unhooked tricks, the Lithium will undoubtedly cover all your needs.
Intermediate to Advanced All-Round Kites (Advanced Freeride)
All-round kites perform very well in waves, freeride and freestyle but do not excel at any of those disciplines – they are jack of all trades. Of course, all-round kites are increasingly appealing since they simplify the buying process of many riders. Wouldn’t you rather travel with one all-round kite instead of one wave kite, one freestyle kite and one race kite? An all-round kite can be summed up as follows:
- 4-line Setup
- Great Upwind
- Good Wave Kite
- Smooth Feeling
- Good Freestyle Kite
- Easy Relaunch
- Steady Pull
- Wide Depower Range
If you’re an experienced rider who enjoys waves, free ride and freestyle the Union is the kite that allow you to do it all and is a great choice for riders getting into freestyle, providing great unhooked performance without being as extreme as a Freestyle specific kite allowing riders to learn the basics of and progress their unhooked riding.
