VERY GOOD CONDITION!
The Park HD is new for this year with a 3-strut higher aspect C-shaped canopy that delivers inspiring performance in the hooked and unhooked freestyle categories. The Park HD inflates quickly with a new large diameter Boston valve that requires the standard large nozzle attachment that comes with all pumps. Its struts inflate via Naish’s one-way internal Octopus distribution system while deflating is a two-step process in which the individual struts deflate independently from the leading edge. The Park features a single setting front bridle with no pulleys and three steering settings on the wingtip to adjust bar pressure. Testers liked the Park HD’s light to medium par pressure and really nice/crisp steering response. The Park HD seems to have tighter pivot style turn for a C-shaped kite, but the Park HD turns fast and feels incredibly solid in the air. We like the Park HD for it’s impressive boosting lift and for it’s relatively higher aspect ratio this kite provided impressive hangtime. The Park HD relaunches wel from deep within the window, although compared to kites with delta leading edges, the Park HD requires steady pressure on one side to flip the kite and taxi halfway to the edge of the window before releasing from the water. Not instant relaunch, but nonetheless reliable and easy for a high performance shape. The Park HD has good unhooked handling which makes this kite an excellent choice for the hooked and unhooked freestylers out there.
