WAVE / BOOSTING / FREERIDE FREESTYLE

 

The all-new Crave is designed with the needs of the kitesurfer who wants to get the very most out of their equipment. Its nimble, three-strut design provides insanely quick handling and enables you to place the kite exactly where you need it to be.

Whether you are wave-riding and want a kite that will turn on a dime and keep you in the pocket, or for committed sending, predictable performance and power on tap, the Crave is the kite for you…

The Crave is fitted with Forward Swept Tips (FST). A popular feature of the Razor, FST delivers crisp, nimble, and controlled kite loops, ensuring world-class performance for strapless freestyle riding. We’ve also integrated a broad wingtip design to allow for lightning-quick water relaunches and maximum flying control, even when the kite is at the extreme edges of the window.

The Crave is built as light as possible, while retaining the ability to take a beating in the surf and the strength to hold its shape through even the most demanding Big Air maneuvers.

FEATURES

PRECISION CURVE STRUTS

New Curved struts hold the designed foil shape delivering the desired performance through the wind range.


ARMORTEX® ABRASION GUARD

Ultra-light, non fraying, and abrasion resistant, these Kevlar/ nylon blend scuff protection pads deliver a streamlined no snag profile throughout the kite.


ULTRA LITE CONSTRUCTION

We use a blend of state of the art fabrics and components in order to bring to you the lightest and toughest kites we’ve ever made. Using custom blended UV film in our strut and leading edge bladders allows us to double down on light weight with outstanding durability.


SPEED INFLATION SYSTEM

Every aspect of our Speed Inflation system has been fine tuned over the years to be low profile, reduce drag, and above all to ensure that you spends less time on the beach and more time on the water.

Featuring all new EVA Clamp covers. See if your clip is open or shut. Light and easy to operate.


FORWARD SWEPT WINGTIP

By increasing the leverage between your front and back lines, FST design gives you the additional leverage needed to snap your kite around through a turn. FST also reduces drag off the wingtip, while delivering more sheeting range with less bar input, which is ideal for unhooked moves.


HIGH CAPACITY VALVE

Direct hose to valve connection for simple operation. Wide threaded cap is easy to tighten and even easier to unscrew eliminating the jammed valve cap syndrome. Cap is leashed to the kite, and the valve cover has been re-shaped for smooth no snag fit.


LOAD DISTRIBUTION

15 years of kite design and manufacturing has taught us more than a few tricks about using strategic seam placement to reduce the stress points between the trailing edge and the canopy. This combined with load distributing reinforcement patches enhance the kite’s performance and durability.


VARIABLE LINE LENGTH

Tailor your kite’s performance to match your riding style and launch conditions. Longer lines generate more power while shorter lines increase speed and response. Ultra-short lines provide immediate rider feedback to the kite and a direct, snappy feel with added advantage of simplified line management at tricky launching and landing sites.


TRIM EQUALIZER

Keeps line lengths equal when fine tuning kite turning speed.


BUCK STITCHING

This three stage zig-zag stitch, combined with 10mm tape, distributes the seam load and creates a tear resistant, long lasting seam.


EASY ACCESS BLADDER PORT

The Leading Edge access port has been redesigned. The zip entry access to bladders is neatly finished delivering a super clean entry into the leading edge compartment.


SECURE CONNECT

Molded beads on the back line leaders deliver a secure larks head connection every time.

Quick connect front line connector loops in high-vis orange allow for easy line management.


SECURE PUMP LEASH LOOP

Easy to locate and perfectly balanced to hold your kite in place while you pump.
