      FAQ's

      What defines a "big air" kite, and how is it different from other kite types?

      Big air kites are designed specifically for riders who aim to achieve maximum height and hangtime during jumps. These kites typically feature characteristics such as a high aspect ratio, increased lift, and powerful boosting capabilities. Unlike other kite types, big air kites prioritize lift and hangtime over maneuverability, making them ideal for riders who want to perform impressive aerial tricks and reach impressive altitudes.

      Can I use a big air kite for other styles of kitesurfing, or is it exclusively for jumping?

      While big air kites are optimized for impressive jumps and hangtime, many models are versatile enough to handle other styles of kitesurfing. Riders can often adjust the kite's settings to balance between lift and maneuverability. However, it's essential to consider the rider's skill level, preferences, and the specific design features of the kite. Riders looking for an all-around kite may choose models that offer a good compromise between big air performance and versatility.

      What factors should I consider when choosing a big air kite for my skill level?

      When selecting a big air kite, factors such as your skill level, wind conditions, and riding goals play a crucial role. Beginners may benefit from kites that offer stability, ease of use, and forgiving characteristics. Advanced riders, on the other hand, may seek kites with more aggressive boosting capabilities and precise control for executing complex tricks. It's advisable to consult with experienced riders or kite instructors to find a suitable big air kite that aligns with your skill level and aspirations.

      How do kite design features contribute to big air performance?

      Several design features influence a big air kite's performance, including:

      • Aspect Ratio: A higher aspect ratio often results in increased lift and better performance in terms of height and hangtime.
      • Canopy Shape: Kites with a flatter canopy shape may generate more lift, contributing to impressive jumps.
      • Bridle System: The bridle system affects the kite's responsiveness and turning speed, influencing its overall performance during big air maneuvers.
      • Leading Edge: The leading edge's design can impact the kite's stability, control, and aerodynamics, all crucial factors for achieving big air.*
