Hyperlink V2 - Multipurpose Foil Kite
The Hyperlink V2 bridges the gap between inflatable and foil kites, it's as dynamic and engaging to ride as an inflatable combined with the high performance characteristics of a foil.
With unparalleled stability, lighter weight, improved handling and bar feeling the V2 design takes it to the next level. It excels on all surfaces, with our innovative valve design it can be set up for the water, snow and land, as a Closed Cell or Open Cell kite.
The Hyperlink V2 features an all-new material combination with a durable, airtight and lightweight double rip-stop for the upper and lower surfaces. The new material has a unique formulated coating to help shed water, improving flying characteristics and water re-launch. The Hyperlink V2 is durable and strong, while being as lightweight as the V1 Ultralight version.
The Hyperlink V2 is a mid aspect ratio design incorporating a minimalist bridle set up, ensuring the kite is user friendly for those taking the leap from inflatable to foil kites. Our latest bridle calculation enhances load distribution and combined with a new arc improves overall performance of the Hyperlink V2. The handling is sharper with a refined bar feeling that is closer to the feel of an inflatable kite.
Our new valve design and position with a new internal structure increases inflation efficiency. Newly designed drainage valves at both wing tips seal to keep air in, and open up when water needs to drain out.
The ability to safely self-land a kite on the snow or land is a crucial feature when adventuring the backcountry or high mountain areas. We have completely re-designed the Hyperlink V2 internal structure and inflate valves to incorporate our industry leading Internal Re-Ride Release System – the same system featured on our dedicated Snowkites.
A true multipurpose foil kite with a new feeling of freedom, the Hyperlink V2 covers almost every aspect of Kiting. Free ride, hydrofoil, boost and float, air style or unhooked, backcountry snow missions, you name it and it delivers!
Conversion Walk Through Video:
4- LINE CLOSED CELL versus 5-LINE OPEN CELL
Watch the how-to video to ensure you understand the correct method to change between 4-Line Closed Cell and 5-Line Open Cell modes.
4-LINE CLOSED CELL MODE
The Hyperlink comes standard in 4-Line Closed Cell Mode, utilizing our Front Line Flag Out Release System. This is recommended for water use – it is a simple and effective flag out when the Quick Release is activated – it works the same way as our 4-line inflatable water kite range
4 Line Closed Cell Mode is recommended when riding on water.
Inflation is quick and smooth after pre-inflating the kite.
If you are already an inflatable kite rider it will only take you one session to get to know the Hyperlink.
For twin tip riders once the kite is in the air and powered up the similarities to an inflatable kite can be felt.
It has progressive handling, generates smooth consistent power, great upwind performance and jumps well with long hang time and smooth landings.
Ideal for Foil Board riding, the Hyperlink produces more power than an inflatable kite size per size - this means you can use a smaller more maneuverable kite to
Maneuvers are made easy thanks to the stability and lift produced as the Hyperlink flies through the zenith – a great help when learning to tack and gybe giving you time and float to change board direction.
In light winds the Hyperlink will fly above you unlike inflatable kites that have a tendency to fall out of the sky. This makes getting set up for starting stress free.
5-LINE OPEN CELL MODE
The optional 5-Line Internal Re-Ride Release System Conversion Kit is recommended for snow or land use. The Internal Re-Ride Release System de-powers the kite instantly without tangling, and falls to the ground to re-launch when ready.
5-Line Open Cell Mode is recommended when riding on snow or land.
Similar inflation as in Closed Cell Mode, slightly quicker due to the valves being open.
Snow and land riding are a blast, the easy inflation and Internal Re-Ride Release System means it can be taken anywhere safely.
The Hyperlink combines the perfect balance of handling, pop and float to make the most of terrain and flats.
It is easy to get big air on this machine!
