Project Description

Swell V2


4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 12m

With the Swell we wanted to make a wave and freeride kite that excels in all conditions, good or bad.

The result is more than a wave specific kite with great low end power and great upwind drive. Its well-balanced 3 strut design and responsive handling also makes it an extremely fun free-ride option, more than capable of handling kiteloops, big boosts and smooth landings.

By combining great stability with fast turning and smooth drift, the Swell delivers all the characteristics you need to focus on carving up the face and slashing the lip.
The Swell´s specially designed shape allows it to be flown at a higher angle of attack (powered up), and gives it superb low end power and an incredible high end range.

By using a 3 point cascading bridle with a single low friction ring the Swell offers the best of two worlds; quick turning and a huge depower range.






3-Strut hybrid SLE

The unique shape gives the kite a great windrange, fast and easy relaunch and smooth ‘drift down the line’.

High flow valve

The big inflation valve makes pumping and packing up the kite a breeze.

Adjustable settings

Settings give the rider full control over how they want the kite to fly; light for chilled surf or hard for the days where you need to feel every nuance.

Reinforced trailing edge

The TE is reinforced with a double layer of Teijin T9600 combined with Bysonil reinforcements for a durable yet lightweight construction.

Ronstan low friction rings

The Ronstan low friction rings are safer than regular pulleys since the lines go around it and through it; this means that in the unlikely event of a ring failure, the lines are still connected.

X-shaped panel lay-out

The Swell’s balanced panel layout and weight distribution give it unrivalled stability and drift.

Direct connection struts

The struts are directly connected to the LE over the full diameter of the profile, this results in better durability and a cleaner profile.

Reinforced leading edge

The leading edge has been reinforced with Dymension Polyant Dacron, Kevlar patches on the strut ends protect against friction wear.
