Viron

Flysurfer VironThe Flysurfer Viron is a totally new concept. This is the first auto relaunching closed cell foil kite. It is designed with beginners taking their first steps into the sport in mind. This kite is extremely simple to fly, relaunch and is designed to recover from inversion by itself, making the learning process as simple and easy as possible. This is ideal for learning the basics with minimal assistance on land, water and snow.

The key features for the Viron are:

  • Auto relaunch with minimal bar input
  • New Reefline Safety (RDS – pat pending) which has less pull than a backstall safety
  • Anti inversion lines

The Viron has a delta inspired shape with swept back wingtips. This aids the relaunch ability. The one air intake in the centre of the kite prevents it from taking on water or snow when being crashed. The coloured tips make teaching simple as they correspond to the bar leader lines. The line attachments are all very clearly marked too. The Reefline Safety (RDS) works like a drawstring across the top of the kite rendering it powerless.

The kite comes complete with a simple bar and the new Flysurfer chicken loop system which is designed to work seemlessly under extreme conditions including ice, sand and dirt. The simple bridle system has no mixer meaning it is very lightweight and simple.

This is a trainer kite and designed for beginners. For this reason the kite is tuned not to be a jumping/hangtime/upwind machine and only comes in small sizes.
