For years the Neo has been the wave kite against which all the others are measured; the unique combination of power, control and drifting characteristics have made it the wave kite everyone wants to ride. As strapless freestyle has evolved as a discipline, the kite has developed too. There are the tuning options soft, medium and hard, allowing you to set the kite up for the day's conditions and your personal preferences. In the hard mode, the kite delivers a powerful loop that is easy to control, while the soft mode enhances the turning speed and the drifting capabilities.
The legendary drift has made the kite incredibly successful in the waves; this, combined with unrivalled steering response, enables the kite to perform in both offshore and onshore conditions. Designer Ken Winner has spent years developing these characteristics within the kite, always striving for perfection. The kite's weight has been optimized to increase performance and the kite reacts instantly to input from the bar. The result is a kite that feels like an extension of your body on the wave.
The wind range is huge with lots of low-end power, allowing you to ride a smaller kite, while at the top end, the kite still offers lots of control. If you want to dominate the waves with total confidence and rule skies, the Neo is the kite for you; tune it to your riding style, initiate the launch sequence, and head straight to the top step of any podium!
