MORE ABOUT THE UFO V1

We sacrificed nothing and maximized everything when we
designed the all-new strutless UFO to be our pure, unlimited
performance foiling kite. The UFO has a Compact Swept-C
canopy shape for direct and instant handling, as well as insane
range and power control, and an IRS bridle for immediate
response. Off of that strutless design and bridle configuration,
we made the canopy out of Teijin D1 fabric—the lightest
weight ripstop available—and then stripped the UFO down to
just the bare essentials in order to make it the ultimate foiling
machine with unbelievable handling and space-age drift.

UFO Features

1. 0 Struts: Reduces weight & drag. With zero struts, the UFO is incredibly
lightweight and able to fly in the lightest of wind conditions. This reduced
drag also allows the UFO to fly further forward in the wind window.
This equates to better upwind angles and reaches, as well as lighter bar
pressure.

2. Teijin D1 Canopy: The lightest weight ripstop on the market—the ideal
fabric for a foil-specific kite like the UFO.

3. Flyweight Construction: From a .3mm bladder to reduced scuff guards
to minimal stitching and paneling, the UFO’s Flyweight Construction is all
about performance simplicity.

4. IRS Bridle: Replaces pulleys traditionally used on any bridle. The IRS Bridle
features a bungee that eliminates the time necessary for the pulley to travel
fore and aft. What used to be delayed and unresponsive, now happens
instantly, seamlessly and automatically thanks to the IRS Bridle.

5. Compact Swept C Shape: Compact = Excellent steering, pivoting and drift.
Swept-C = Huge range with responsive power management to prevent over
foiling.

6. Compact UFO Kite Day Pack: A minimalist, nylon kite bag, stripped
down to the bare essentials. Packs down extremely small for optimum travel
performance. Fit your whole quiver in your carry on.
