Peter Lynn Introduces The Aero - Hydrofoil Race Kite

Sizes: 7 / 9 / 11 / 14 / 17 / 20m

At Peter Lynn we believe performance should not be measured in speed or raw power alone.

Performance is about responsiveness, precision, handling balance and most importantly; the riders experience. This is why we work tirelessly on perfecting our designs to match our heritage of class leading design, ease of use, assured stability and sophisticated craftsmanship.

Developed upon the backbone of the Vapor, the most successful fixed bridle racekite of the last decade. And built with only high-end, ultra-light materials and the latest construction methods. The Aero is designed for uncompromised racing performance but also to offer you ease of use and stability to put a smile on your face whenever you pull the bar to leave everything and everyone behind.

At the same time it is created to get you going in the lightest of breezes because there are few things in life that make your daily troubles disappear like the peaceful mellow of a light wind session. Be it cruising desolate beaches, riding snow covered hills or foiling glass lagoons.

Let the Aero be your ticket to sessions never before possible and enjoy the tranquillity of riding in the lowest winds and maximize the time you can spend out there doing what you love most.

What about the bar? I use a 55cm on the 14 and 60cm on the 17.

The bars in the video look enormous, like SUBSTANTIALLY larger than 55cm.

Edit: It's 70cm...the riders from the video were commenting on Facebook:

I agree! its insane.

Hopefully that's just for the racers with short lines and the kite isn't optimized for a 70cm bar. 70cm bar for normal used would just be stupid.

PS Its taken them an age to release the kite. Talk about slow development!

Definately not designed for a big bar, I was just testing bar-widths and found that 70cm was not too big and gives you a slight advantage looping the 17m on 14m lines (bar - kite) in gusty lightwind conditions like the video. On a twintip boosting session a 45cm bar is more than wide enough.

Sadly cannot compare the Aero to the current racefoils, but it steers faster than my Chrono and R1 v1 and smokes those kites downwind with a less on-off feeling and better high-end control. Breaking all my VMG and topspeed records since the switch to Aero's.

Been watching the development of the aero for a couple of years. I race with a few peterlynn buggy pilots in the uk and have witnessed it being flown, crashed, dropped, tuned and beat every other kite on the beach. And i mean by half a lap or more. Its bloody fast, but its also in the hands of the countries best whom were winning with the vapor even against race depowers. The real measure will be in the hydrofoil racing.

The Aero is not only for foiling!

Was a bit affraid of the filling process in high-winds (gusts a bit over 40kn) after my experience with other 9m foilkites, but to my surpise the Aero 7m was completely filled before I could blink my eyes withouh pre-infation. It also rock-solid in the air, i really need to take all the tension out of the lines to get a small collapse that restored itself as soon as the lines get straigh again.

Really in love with this small size foil, imediatly broke my personal woo-record even when I was not fully overpowerd. Insane vertical lift and more hangtime than the best 9m tube while it is fast enough for last second corrections and helicopter landings.
