Predictable in the Unpredictable
The Orbit is a high-performance big air kite that is stable and consistent in a wide range of conditions, especially in the high end.
Anti-gravity boosts and megaloops
Send it to extreme heights. With its dependable catch and kiteloop recovery, the Orbit always has your back. The Orbit has a very big footprint in the sky. This increases the amount of sail area working for you, making the kite super-efficient with great power delivery – which gives you incredible boost. It’s also fast and responsive in the steering and flies forward through the sky quickly, so it’s able to get around and catch you, climb up and give you lots of time to prepare for your landing.
Powerful and efficient 2-stage arc design
The Orbit has a wide flattened 2-stage arc supported by a reinforced exo-skeleton frame, ensuring glide that is guaranteed to take your breath away
NEW lighter N-DURE Dacron in all sizes
Using a lighter Dacron on the leading edge and struts saves a significant amount of weight, without compromising strength or durability.
In 2023 we’ve made small refinements to the bridle, retaining the Orbit’s controlled response and fast steering, while giving the kite a more energetic feel with increased depower.
Lightweight bladders in larger sizes
Weight matters, always. Lighter weight means a smaller turning radius. Lighter weight means your kite flies faster, sooner, because you need less wind to get the kite up in the sky. The lighter the kite, the faster the steering, the more lift it creates and the higher you jump.
NEW strategic 2-ply Canopy Reinforcement
We’ve used a two-ply canopy material to reinforce the trailing edge. This adds strength and elongation control, protecting the lighter inner main canopy body.
Stable 5-strut performance
When you’re chasing a storm, the Orbit provides incredible top-end control.
Highest quality no-pulley bridle lines
Our high-quality spliced, pre-stretched bridle lines are pre-loaded and measured before cutting to improve accuracy and consistency. This results in reduced shrinkage, reduced elongation and improved longevity. Removing ALL pulleys from the bridle improves safety and gives the kite direct and precise handling.
High Aspect Ratio Design
Gives the Orbit a low drag profile, making it sit further forwards in the wind window for incredible upwind performance. The high aspect ratio design allows more area in the centre of the kite for efficiency and easy roll to relaunch.
High Performance N-HTRS canopy
All our kites are manufactured using high tenacity polyester yarn canopy material for lightness, high tear strength, zero porosity and longevity.
New Bar Pressure options
The steering impulse options are the attachment points at the wing tip for your rear bridle lines. All our kites come delivered with what we feel is the optimum setting. On the Orbit, this is second from the wingtip and gives the kite a lighter, more forgiving feeling. If you prefer more direct steering and shorter depower travel, you’re able to move your connection forward on the wing tip.
Aerodynamic profile transition panels
For 2023 we’ve refined the panel cuts for an even smoother profile shape by removing the heavy-duty canopy panels. There’s now only one panel segment instead of two, this reduces the number of seams, and helps to smooth out the profile entry.
Kevlar reinforced strut system with bridle deflectors
For the most accurate and durable connection between the strut and the leading edge. Bridle deflectors on the leading edge prevent the control lines from snagging.
