What we think: This kite will have you going upwind with ease in lightwinds. Even in high winds this kite won't feel overpowering because of its fantastic stability.
The Contra benefits from years of refinement as the kite that first perfected light wind efficiency. The Contra is an ideal extension to any kite quiver. It performs like a small kite while it delivers the power of a much larger kite. This makes it a performer in any and all riding categories.
The Contra is a three strut light wind kite, designed to optimize low-end power while retaining the finesse that keeps this kite fun to fly. The high aspect ratio maximizes power production and makes generating power and speed a snap. Our trademark depower-on-demand makes managing this power effortless, allowing it to execute sharp and precise turns. Tuned to deliver the type of performance that will widen the scope of what you can do in light winds, the Contra has the power to get you up and riding when the winds are barely showing signs on the water.
