We know you like to ride hard. That’s why the Fat Lady has 25% more Insignia Tape in the delicate areas surrounding the LE. You can be confident this kite will endure even the toughest impact. Unique Dacron material used for the leading edge, struts and tips is considerably lighter, but efficiently stronger. This is thanks to our tried-and-tested, innovative box threading design, which has more rigid construction and allows for a tighter weave. Our top of the line Techno Force canopy material has been a mainstay of our product line for 4 years, and has proven to be superior to anything else on the market. The specially-designed valve pieces on the Fat Lady’s one-pump system are 100 percent foolproof. Trust us, you’ll be pumped up and ready to hit the waves in no time
There are many light wind kites on the market that are great at keeping you upwind, but this is far from the only feature designed on the Fat Lady. Quick turning is a must, in order to keep the kite lively and versatile. Big jumps goes without saying, as this is exactly what we expect out of any kite (excluding wave kites). If there’s light wind, you shouldn’t stop your progression. Even with the Fat Lady you can crash your kite on the water and easily relaunch due to the low AR! This is a key design element that has been incorporated since the beginning. In general physics, air drag is like friction. If you are able to reduce it, then the kite is more “loose” and dynamic. This is exactly what we aimed to do and ultimately achieved it by dramatically reducing the diameter of the Leading Edge. Anytime .you’re at the beach with the Fat Lady, lay it (carefully) on top of any other kite and compare the differences.
