Featuring a very stiff frame and stable canopy the kite is capable of delivering massive amounts of lift and pop. It’s this feature that attracts the big air riders where predictability in strong winds is key.
However, the ace up the kites sleeve is its ability to deliver incredible slack during unhooked riding. As you pop, the kite is designed to create slack in the lines that allow you perform the most technically demanding tricks with ease. With precise and dynamic handling the Vegas has garnered a multitude of fans out there with a wide variety of riding styles. There are three setups on the kite with numerous trim options, allowing you to tune your Vegas to the way you ride and the conditions of the day.

Amazing unhooked performance and pop
Incredible slack after the pop, this allows you to perform the most technically demanding tricks with ease.
Responsive power release delay
The responsive power release delay gives you the slack you need for your wakestyle and freestyle performance.
3 setups and trimming options
The Vegas can be tuned exactly how you want it to fly, variable sheeting force settings and depower settings.
Pure C kite design
Best kite design for wakestyle and freestyle due to the offered slack. The Vegas is the ultimate megalooping machine.
5 struts for a very stable and robust kite frame.
Loaded 5th line
The loaded 5th line is responsible for reactive steering, powered as well as depowered and a crisp and direct bar feel.
Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam
The leading edges of all kites are extremely durable due to a special heavy duty closing seam. The Dacron material at the leading edge is reinforced with a self sticky Insignia Tape and double stitched additionally. The Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam is resistant to very high tensions and diagonal forces.
This construction allows for a controlled distribution of forces between strut and leading edge. Struts are 100% connected to the leading edge with a flexible Dyneema line, which promotes higher canopy tension and a clean profile.
Self Rescue Handles
The self-rescue handles on the inside of the wingtips can be easily found in case of an offshore break down. They provide a good, comfortable grip while sailing back to the shore during a self-rescue manoeuvre.
The Anti Snag webbing is preventing the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite. Waterstarts are made easier and safety is increased.
Teijin is the world’s leading supplier of polyester fabrics and sail materials to marine sports. The combined creative power of Duotone saw the formulation of TRINITY TX. Exclusive to Duotone, TRINITY TX is a 3×2 canopy material, which has proven to be far superior to other canopy materials in terms of durability and dynamic performance.The 3×2 yarn combination has proven to be the best solution in performance as well as durability, overall superior to any 2×2 or 4×4 yarn solutions. TRINITY TX. Made to stand the test of time.
Load Distribution Panels
As kite geometry improves, the canopy must continue to resist increasing forces. To spread these forces, Load-Distribution-Panels are used, holding the kite’s shape even under the most extreme loads. In practice this gives a smoother and more consistent performance from the kite in any riding situation.
These pigtails distribute the load of the line connections to the kite, minimizing the risk of fatigue, making the kite less prone to distortion and helps it to steer more smoothly.
Trailing Edge Force Control
The Trailing Edge Force Control is responsible for the smooth power distribution between the different materials of the kite, forcing the tensions in the right directions. Since 2013 the waves are higher and wider to eliminate stress points between the Dacron Trailing Edge and the Trinity TX Canopy material. This change in construction reduces fluttering marks and ensures that the material is not wearing out.
Kook Proof Connectors
The kook proof line connection points prevent accidents by guaranteeing that you cannot accidentally connect your lines incorrectly when rigging your kite.
