CHARACTERISTICS

Hardcore 5 line C-shape

The particular feeling of a traditional 5 line kite is unmatchable. A deep C shape with a lean LE create maximum power build-up and minimal pull on the lines during a trick.

Powerful pop and great slack during tricks

The Raw is made for ultimate power built-up and explosive release when you pop from the water. After that, it’s pure silence in which you can focus. Designed with 5-struts, the Raw has a stiff frame that maintains its shape and stability during tricks and megaloops.

Direct feel and kite feedback

The Raw’s direct feel and kite feedback give the rider a feeling of trust and control that inspire confidence from the first launch. The Raw’s pulley-less bridles and stiff frame make the kite responsive and direct so that you can place it exactly where you want it. The short bridle makes it turn fast and as tight as you want, a great feature to bust out kite loops.

Explosive boost

The Raw’s freestyle character comes out in its explosive nature. Due to the pure C-shape, the RAW creates a powerful boost for your big air jumps and shoots you into the sky for your megaloops.

Tech Specs Raw

5th line setup

The RAW is a hard-core C-kite with a 5th line setup which makes this kite a lot more user-friendly. This feeling is created by the deep C-shape with a lean LE. The LE is supported by the 5th line creating more power and slack throughout your ride. When performing a trick, the 5th line creates maximum power build-up and makes the kite drift with minimal pull on the lines so you can focus on the trick. Furthermore, the 5th line allows for easy depower and relaunch.

5 strut frame

Thanks to the Solid LE Frame Design, this kite becomes very responsive. This makes the Raw perfect for trying out tricks, and to get better at them. Especially if you consider competitions, you need a kite with optimal flight and responsiveness to get you to the top of the league, and the Raw possesses all these qualities. Prepare to be amazed to score big!

Reinforced leading edge

Multiple reinforcements improve durability. The leading edge and struts are built with the most durable Dacron. The entire span of the leading edge has been reinforced along the seam with double stitches to protect it from getting damaged when crashing or getting a pounding by waves, making it hands down one of the toughest kites on the market. All the bridle attachment points are reinforced with Dacron patches that are stitched on the inside of the leading edge so, even if all the power is channelled through one bridle point, the kite will not get damaged.

Super Kook Proof Pigtails

Besides having colour coded back and front line connections, we added super kook proof pigtails to your back lines, to avoid the moment where you can’t remember which knot you used to attach your kite to. This way you will always use the same knot and your kite feeling will always be optimal.

Fit all valve

Our kites are equipped with a ‘fit-all-valve’ for easy inflation. The bayonet fitting fits all pumps and the large valve opening makes inflation a breeze. You won’t have to spend hours and hours looking for a pump with the right connection, and will be out on the water in no time.
