The relaunch capability of the SPEED5 is outstanding – even in the lowest wind conditions, water relaunch is no problem.
The SPEED5 embodies 10 years of FLYSURFER know-how in kite development. Its new construction allows for faster turning, more lift and hangtime – this is thé best SPEED for massive big airs. Because of its steady increase of lift, take-offs and high controllable jumps are made easy. An aspect ratio of 6.15 in combination with an optimized profile and rigid-foils increase the glide ratio. In comparison to the SPEED4 this results in a stronger kick, increased jumping height, hang time and an even slightly better upwind performance.
