The "PS" in the Eleveight PS stands for Progression Series. This kite is delta-shaped, 3-strut designed, particularly for teaching and kite instructors. It offers great reinforcements in the most exposed areas and a double ripstop on the canopy (made by Teijin Techno Force) to prevent possible wear and tear. The Eleveight PS 2021 is the most reliable tool for kite schools because of its stability and smoothness, accessibility, and its ability to relaunch easily in any wind condition. All thanks to its low to medium aspect ratio, Eleveight PS is super predictable with moderate speed. And what kite instructors and beginners want about this kite is that it is so durable, strong, and most of all, very safe to use.
2021 ELEVEIGHT PS
A gentle and durable power-kite with nifty features, tailored to the needs of freeriders and kite schools to boost skill progression and maximize fun on the water.
PERFORMANCE FEATURES: • Swept three-strut hybrid design for rapid progression and fun sessions • Amazing upwind performance and huge wind range • Ultra-stable and forgiving flying characteristics • Heavy-duty built quality with strong reinforcements • Care-free riding with innovative safety features and automatic relaunch
2021 CHANGES: • Improved stability and durability with less canopy stretch thanks to X4 Ripstop Canopy made by Teijin Techno Force • Enhanced agility due to the new lightweight construction of load-diffusers along the trailing edge • More responsive and precise steering characteristics and improved bar feedback achieved by a new bridle design with better pulley positioning • More dynamic flying characteristics with high-performance strut design that reduces drag
DESIGN VISION: Collaborating with various kite schools, we further optimized the PS. Our V4 three-strut hybrid has an improved ease-of-use, maximized wind range, and enhanced durability.
To achieve this, we made multiple changes while preserving the kite's original character. Foremost, we introduced the hyper-strong X4 Ripstop canopy made by Teijin Techno Force. It increases the stability, responsiveness as well as the steering precision of the kite. Our redesigned trailing edge and struts are lighter and minimize drag, which results in a significant leap in low-end performance and agility. Furthermore, our new bridle concept with better pulley placements delivers more tamable flight characteristics with direct bar feedback. The kite's DNA, its safety features, and the latest improvements make the PS the ideal tool for schools and newcomers.
DESIGNER'S QUOTE: "Every inch of the PS is designed to spark a passion for kiteboarding. We built a kite that gets newcomers up and riding in no time while being a super fun kite for advanced riders." -Peter Stiewe
