Rebel fortsetter å utfordre grenser og omdefinere kjøreopplevelsen for en ny generasjon av utøvere. I år fokuserte designteamet på vingespissene for å forbedre håndteringen og svingehastigheten. I tillegg ble canopy-spennet optimalisert for å forbedre håndtering av vindkast og muliggjøre at dragen beholder formen sin uavhengig av vindstyrke.
Kombinasjonen av Penta TX og Trinity TX skaper en bemerkelsesverdig stiv drage som opprettholder formen selv under krevende og ujevne forhold, og gir jevn og smidig kraftlevering. Tilføyelsen av Flex Struts lar spissene vri seg, noe som resulterer i intuitiv håndtering og eksepsjonelt dynamisk styring.
Mens Rebel SLS gir imponerende kraft, gir den også enestående kontroll. Med øyeblikkelig depower kan du navigere trygt i krevende forhold og oppnå ekstraordinære høyder under store luftsprang. Dragens eksplosive take-off og vertikale boost vil sende deg til nye høyder, mens den forlenget svevetiden vil få deg til å føle at du svever i luften, oppleve lengre flytider. Selv i lett vind forblir Rebel SLS svært kapabel, og gir rikelig med kraft i lavtomsrådet gjennom raske oppslag, takket være sin lavere vekt. Den reduserte vekten forbedrer også drif-egenskapene, slik at du kan svinge under dragen under landinger og enkelt hente den inn igjen.
Rebel SLS er et perfekt valg for frikjøringentusiaster og de som søker massive sprang med lang svevetid. Sett nye høyderekorder på din lokale spot og gå ekstra stort med den nye Rebel SLS.
»The new Rebel SLS really changed for the better, now with faster and more continuous turning speed the kite gives you a better ability to go in even lighter wind conditions, more comfort to kite with big sizes, but still the with the incomparable DNA of a Rebel. The Rebel SLS is the easiest kite to jump high, you pull the bar and you are gone!«
"Nytt for 2024, den forbedrede Rebel SLS leverer utrolig ytelse i en meget brukervennlig pakke med forbedret egenskap i nedre vindregister samtidig som den beholder den velkjente Rebel "sheet-and-go" følelsen. Det perfekte verktøyet for store luftsprang og freeriding."
EASIEST KITE TO JUMP
The Rebel SLS is the easiest kite in the range to jump. Simply redirect and hold the edge, and you are rewarded with massive lift every time.
BIGGER VERTICAL BOOST
For 2024 the Rebel SLS has been tweaked to improve the vertical boost this jumping machine delivers.
INSTANT ABSOLUTE DEPOWER
Total control is right at your fingertips, simply sheet out on the bar, and the kite spills power faster than any other kite in the range.
FAST AND AGILE
The Rebel has been designed to be much more responsive; this allows you to fly the kite around the window with precision and power and get the kite to the edge of the window quickly in gusts so you can dump power when needed.
The SLS construction helps reduce the overall weight of the kite and improves performance by making the frame stiffer. In addition, materials like Penta TX and Trinity TX make the kite light while offering excellent durability.
GOOD DRIFT AND LONG HANGTIME
The Rebel SLS offers excellent drift allowing you to catch the kite after big jumps and even gives you long hangtime in light winds allowing you to perform your tricks with ease.
Introducing the redesigned Rebel SLS for 2024, a true icon that continues to push boundaries and redefine the riding experience for a new generation of riders. This year, the design team focused on the wing tips to improve the handling and turning speed. In addition, the canopy tension was also optimised to improve the gust handling and enable the kite to keep its shape no matter the wind strength.
The combination of Penta TX and Trinity TX creates a remarkably rigid kite that maintains its shape even in challenging gusty conditions, providing consistent and smooth power delivery. The addition of Flex Struts allows the tips to twist, resulting in intuitive handling and exceptionally dynamic steering. While the Rebel SLS offers impressive power, it also provides unparalleled control. With its instantaneous depower, you can confidently navigate strong conditions and achieve extraordinary heights during big air jumps. The explosive take-off and vertical boost of the kite will propel you to new levels, while the extended hangtime will make you feel as if you're floating in the air, experiencing longer flight times with every jump
Even in light winds, the Rebel SLS remains highly capable, delivering ample low-end power through quick upstrokes, thanks to its lighter weight. This reduced weight also improves drift, allowing you to swing under the kite during landings and easily recover it. The Rebel SLS is a perfect choice for freeride enthusiasts and those seeking massive jumps with long hangtimes. Light up the height scores at your local spot and go extra-large with the new Rebel SLS.
We were there when the first kites were seen riding downwind from Ho’okipa to Kanaha. We got dragged over the beaches of Maui, the Baltic Sea or Tarifa, we tried directionals and twin tips, we experimented with two, four or five lines and we developed C-shapes, Delta-shapes and safety bars. Whatever comes to your mind regarding kitesurfing evolution in the past 20 years - we took part in it.
There is not a single day without one of our engineers or team riders on the water testing new products. We call ourselves fortunate to have a team which yearns to push the sport to the next level. From the early days until today we did experience an incredible progression and yet there is no end in sight. And this is what creates the excitement. Our R&D team does not respond to trends! We love to start the trend, to set the tone and to explore new ways on the water.
