Staggering loops, radical freestyle tricks, and explosive boosts – these are the key features embedded into the DNA of our iconic FSeries kite. We tailored this high-performance wing to suit the needs of advanced freestyle and big air riders while ensuring that its professional traits are accessible to pilots of all levels. Therefore we went with an Open-C design that comes with all the advantages of a true C-kite such as direct control, line slack and a wide angle-of-attack for powerful maneuvers

PERFORMANCE FEATURES

Five strut Open-C design
High-performance kite to excel in freestyle and big air
High aspect ratio for explosive lift
Medium to low sweep provides power and grunt
Plenty of line slack simplifies freestyle tricks
Good upwind performance and great stability
New bridle system with added trim option for customized performance
Superior materials like X4 canopy and XT cloth made by Techno Force™

SIZES

06 / 07 / 08 / 09 / 10 / 12 / 14 / 16

Have the FS 2020 models and absolutely love them! Used to ride the Cabrinha Fx and loved it but find the 5 struts make the FS very solid especially in strong winds! Also broke my Personal Best and hit 16.3m last week.


Give them a shot if you like to do big loops and unhook.

The kite in the photos is 9m but I also have 12m, had a competition last weekend was 25kts gusting 30 and holding down the 9m without any worries. I'm 70kg, I've got videos of the loops on my Instagram @sandykites. Hope you like

Does the FS have any crossover into waves like a Dice or is it pure freestyle?

Pure freestyle/big air, to much power in the turn unless you use it underpowered.
