Our understanding of true performance is not just raw power or speed – it is the combination of every aspect of a kites characteristics, and most importantly how easy it is to access its full potential.
The R1 V3 design is derived from the incredibly successful R1 V2. The race winning performance of the R1 V2 is very easy to tap into, which made it the benchmark kite in the racing scene.
We have refined the design for the V3, taking it to the next level without compromising accessibility to the R1s supercharged performance.
A re-designed internal structure increases strength and support without additional weight. Re-calculated bridal line diameters reduce overall line drag by 14%.
By utilising the ultra high performance V2 design and combining these performance enhancements we have found an overall increase in performance giving the hard-core racer:
- Better angles up and down wind
- Higher top end and lower bottom end range
- Responsive handling
- Increased stability in light wind conditions
- Quicker inflation
