After successfully releasing their newest high performance addition to their LEI range last year with the BOOST, Flysurfer are not sitting still. They have just released the SPEED5, the latest chapter in the ten year success story that is the SPEED, a closed-cell foilkite for Big Air and hangtime, which is the ultimate all-round performance kite for water, land and snow. Then there is the SONIC-FR, a pure racing machine, with unmatched performance, upwind angle and speed, but still in a package that is easy to handle for expert riders, and finally the PEAK2, Flysurfer’s single skin technology depower kite. This is not meant for water, but for land and snow use. It is a kite which does not have a bottom sail but still has depower and is therefore extremely light and flies in the lightest breeze, creating new possibilities for kitesports, and opening up new areas through allowing kiteschools to teach on very light days.

The Flysurfer BOOST convinces with simplicity and is Flysurfer’s high performance L.E.I kite. Designed with double 3D shaping and pre-tensioning technology it is built for everyone. Whether you love massive airs or high paced racing. Aeronautic 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 take-off. Airstyle, big air, max-speed or megaloops, do whatever you want and set new limits. You can also get the most fun out of your light wind sessions with the LW-Editions. Their weight reduction, higher aspect ratio, unmatched relaunch abilities and adaptive airfoils will give you a unique advantage on those lighter days.

The sheer force of this pure racing machine gives you speed thrills, goosebumps and more, with the kite cutting through air at angles into the wind never seen before. It also offers the most extreme lift and hangtime any Flysurfer kite has ever delivered, now combined with sophisticated handling, in a unique super high aspect- ratio, closed-cell ram-air foilkite.

The SPEED5 is also a safe companion for snow kiting. Even in gusty conditions its stability and reliable performance ensures pure stoke.
The Flysurfer Kiteboarding R&D team always tries to give kitesports more variety. It was through allowing themselves the room and opportunity to achieve truly innovative products that they created the first Single-Skin kite. For years Reinhart Paelinck worked to achieve his dream to build the world’s most versatile kite. Flysurfer had high expectations to improve this unique product even more – and they knew it could be achieved through combining the expert knowledge of their paragliding and foil-kite development team. Now, with the Flysurfer PEAK2, Reinhart and Flysurfer have made the next leap forward. The PEAK2 has unmatched low-end, enhanced stability and even more performance – but it still comes in a lighter and smaller package!
