2017 BLADE FAT LADY – 4TH GENERATION
From Blade: Aaaaaah those light wind days. What’s better than going to the beach on a calm day, setting up a towel on the warm sand, getting out your Fat Lady kite and ripping through the air with tremendous power. The 4th generation Fat Lady has even more upwind to help you fly through the air and add new high-level tricks to your collection, courtesy of its extreme quick-turning and responsiveness abilities. The Max Flow quick-inflation system and the Cross-Fiber Ripstop for better durability make sure you can keep your focus on what’s important– going out there and shredding the water with a big smile on your face.
• Powerfully efficient
• Ultra thin LE
• Amazing low-end performance

Kite Size: 17
The 3-strut kite design has proven itself since the day Blade introduced it in 2008, enhancing the responsiveness and turning speed for any size kite.
All Blade kites are designed to be super reactive and quick turning. This is vital in order to progress as riders and define one’s riding style.
Whether the kite dives onto the water or tumbles through the waves, it doesn’t matter. The exclusive kite design forces the wingtips out of the water and to the edge of the window. Virtually no work is needed to get back up and riding.
Turning axis is generated along the LE between center strut and wingtip, resulting in efficient balance between turning speed and power delivery. This is a key performance feature for all-around kites.
The profile shape from the leading to the trailing edge changes as you move from the center out towards the wingtips. This rider-conscious design provides the optimal performance characteristics for the different stages of flight.
ULTRA THIN LE
Surprisingly, the diameter of the LE is nearly the same diameter as the Trigger 12m! This design characteristic drastically reduces drag forces, making this light wind kite impressively quick and responsive.
