NEW KITE GEOMETRY
The Machine V1 features an all-new kite geometry created by our legendary design team. This new shape and profile have ushered in the potential for maximum height and hang time.
NEW CLEAN CANOPY
We drastically reduced canopy paneling from previous kite models. This paneling reduction decreases the kite’s overall weight while also providing a more aerodynamic canopy profile.
NEW PULLEYLESS BRIDLE SYSTEM
No pulleys means riders have a more instant and direct input from bar to kite. An upgrade to more premium materials, reduces the bridle-line thickness by 25%. Riders will instantly feel less drag through the air due to this streamlining.
NEW ONE PUMP SPEED SYSTEM
The patented Slingshot invention that’s now used industry-wide has gotten an upgrade for 2022. We have increased the system’s tube diameters to get cleaner airflow for easier inflation, and also repositioned the tubes to be more streamlined and durable.
HYBRID OPEN-C CANOPY
By eliminating the 4th and 5th struts, the design team could lighten the overall build while increasing its light-wind performance. The hybrid geometry provides excellent wind range, instant water relaunch and unlimited light-wind potential.
4X4 CANOPY TECH
The Machine LW V1 is built with Teijin 4×4 reinforced ripstop material. This is the strongest, stiffest and most durable canopy material on the market.
MULTIPLE ATTACHMENT POINTS
Different attachment points integrated into the kite allow you to fine tune handling, power and performance based on your riding style and the conditions of a particular session. Even slight changes to these settings can make an enormous impact on the kite’s overall performance, making this a useful tool for getting the most out of your kite every time you ride.
