The WTF!? is a no compromise freestyle machine designed for winners; it’s even in the name: Win The Freestyle!
- Pure C Shape freestyle design
- 5th Line Set Up
- 5 Strut Design
- Excellent Pop
- Ultimate control during kite loops
The C-Shape itself has always been the best option for making an easy to control and dynamic kite. To maximise the handling during intense moments such as loading up for pop and slack, and megaloops, we utilised a five strut design which keeps the profile exceedingly steady and gives our riders great confidence in the kite at all times. We decided to add a 5th line to help with control, optimise the power and also to enable them to relaunch the kite quickly with minimal effort.
Returning to a pure C shape design, was a very exciting process for us, we were able to listen to our top freestylers and work with them and our designer, Robert Graham, to create the ultimate kite. The goal was to build them the kite they wanted, not a toned down version for the masses but the perfect tool for our top riders to do their job.
Freestyle kites undergo unique situations as the riders load and release, going from full power as they edge to no power as they fly through the air, that “slack” feeling is the Holy Grail of a good freestyle kite. The WTF has superior pop and excellent slack, while we have ensured the kite is strong enough to handle these intense demands, especially during high wind kite loops, we have also kept the weight of the kite down to ensure excellent handling.
Each size of the WTF has been individually designed to match the conditions they are aimed at. The larger sizes have been developed to deliver more power and get you planing early; the smaller sizes are built with a high top end wind range in mind. This means whichever size you choose; you know everything has been done to get the most out of the given conditions on the day.
We are offering the WTF in every size from 5m to 15m allowing you to choose the perfect quiver for you without having to compromise. The kites are also highly tuneable, allowing you to dial in the flying characteristics to suit your riding style. There are three tuning options on the front lines; these allow you to adjust the kite to fly according to your level, riding style and the conditions of the day. Three rear line tuning options enable you to tune how the kite feels at the bar and adjust the handling too.
Kites with extended de-power ranges sustain more pressure across the canopy as they experience an increased frequency of use over a wider wind range.
TECHNOFORCE™ of TEIJIN is a high density Polyester fabric with a tear stopping structure using thin and high tension yarn.
Our fast inflation & deflation valve.
Stronger assembly of the panels: they are now glued and sewn together to make the canopy more rip resistant.
The internal outline of the trailing edge panels is no more linear but with a series of arches.
The kite’s struts are designed with a vertical cut in order to optimize the strength / diameter ratio.
The leading edge tips benefit from a reduced diameter, they are streamlined to lower the drag and equipped with a strap to avoid bridle tangling
Turning & bar pressure tuning.
Power & slack tuning.
Pulley structure is extremely resistant.
Easier to remove and put back.
Convenient for bladder replacement.
