The FX kite is designed for high performance freestyle riders needing a wider wind range and more versatility than a traditional “C” shaped kite. It’s perfectly suited to perform at the highest level of competition, but is also forgiving enough to make learning technical moves much less difficult. It’s a really fun kite to fly. There are a growing number of riders looking for a kite that has some attributes of a performance crossover kite but lean more toward a performance freestyle kite. The FX is a marriage between these two genres and fits in our range between the Chaos and the Switchblade. It has the drive and pull that you typically see in a freeride driven design, but it won’t hold you back when pushing to excel to a higher freestyle riding level. This kite flies through the window rather than pivoting so it will produce power all the way through a kite loop. It gets through a kite loop really quick and is able to fly uphill and recover before the rider gets close to the water.
