UFO V1 DETAILS
MORE ABOUT THE UFO
We sacrificed nothing and maximized everything when we designed the all-new strutless UFO to be our pure, unlimited performance foiling kite. The UFO’s has a Compact Swept-C canopy shape for direct and instant handling, as well as insane range and power control, and an IRS bridle for immediate response. Off of that strutless design and bridle configuration, we made the canopy out of Teijen D1 fabric—the lightest weight ripstop available—and then stripped the UFO down to just the bare essentials in order to make it the ultimate foiling machine with unbelievable handling and space-age drift.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE THE UFO
- The lightest LEI kite we’ve ever made
- Optimized for foiling
- The most drift and power control in our range
With zero struts, the UFO is incredibly lightweight and able to fly in the lightest of wind conditions.
Teijen D1 Canopy
The lightest weight ripstop on the market—the ideal fabric for a foil-specific kite like the UFO.
From a .3mm bladder to reduced scuff guards to minimal stitching and paneling, the UFO’s Flyweight Construction is all about performance simplicity.
The IRS Bridle replaces pulleys traditionally used on any bridle. The IRS Bridle features a bungee that eliminates the time necessary for the pulley to travel fore and aft. What used to be delayed and unresponsive, now happens instantly, seamlessly and automatically thanks to the IRS Bridle.
COMPACT SWEPT-C SHAPE
Compact = Excellent steering, pivoting and drift. Swept-C = Huge range with responsive power management to prevent over foiling.
