AERO SIZES

Challenge the existing

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.

The Aero is available in standard light fabric and in Ultra Light Skytex.

Individually designed sizes

To accomplish maximum performance across the entire range of sizes we do not believe in scaling up or down. That is why each individual size has its very own design specifics, cell count and Aspect Ratio, this ensures optimal performance in each size as well as synergized handling, feel and balance across the range.

Highly balanced material use

The Aero is completely built with 20D Fabric to ensure the light wind performance associated with this type of kite. To create the kite’s high dimensional stability we used 30D hard coated fabric for the internal construction.

Nylon batten shaping

To increase the aerodynamics of the kite, a nylon batten has been fitted on the front of each panel to create a very slick ‘nose’. While these fibre rods keep the nose tightly in shape they also add to the overall stability of the kite and help prevent luffing.

High Aspect Ratio, high cell count

The Aero’s high Aspect Ratio and high cell count make for a very thin and slick wing. The high number of cells ensure the wings dimensional stability and prevents deforming of the designed shape. The High Aspect ratio makes the kite cut upwind like a knife and allows for high flying speeds.

Clever internal design

The inside of the kite is designed especially to maximize dimensional stability as well as reduced need for bridle points. The tension straps running along the bottom skin is a technical detail borrowed from the Twinskin/Arc design and ensures proper bulging of the bottom skin while keeping the tension in check. The clever D and H Ribs allow for evenly spaced out bridle points and create a very rigid frame.

Optimized & minimal bridle

The Internal construction allows for evenly spaced out bridle points which in turn allow for a drastic reduction in overall bridle length. The bridle itself is constructed out of the highest grade Liros® DC 100% Dyneema® lines.

Reinforced bridle points

The bridle tabs are double stitched and reinforced with a Dacron patch for strength and durability, a Peter Lynn system which has proven its reliability time over time.

Ronstan® Orbit pulleys

The Aero’s speed system is constructed with 2×2 Ronstan® Orbit pulleys, these high quality pulleys weigh only 9grams and allow for loads up to 250Kg. And since the line goes through the bearing it will always stay connected even in the rare case the pulley gets damaged.
