Departures from the norm and outside of the box thinking are what bring strides in next generation product development. The challenge with this philosophy of thinking and development is to retain all the special characteristics that 7 years of Envy development has achieved. We have reached a point where the Envy is one of the most user friendly, versatile, kites on the market.The 8th version of the Envy is now here.
Not only does the NV have a new name moniker, but also utilizes a complete new profile and airframe geometries.The most noticeable change is in the wingtip geometry. This drastic change has produced prolific improvements in kite input back to the rider, allowing the rider to focus on what is in front of them and not what is going on above them in the kite. Another benefit of this shape is reduction of wingtip flaring, allowing the kite to move faster through the wind window and reduce light wind back stalling. The leading edge diameter has become more tuned in shape by reducing the diameter in key areas. Reduction in LE shape adds in speed across the wind window and makes for a fluid turning radius. Support of the LE and canopy airframe has been improved over the past generations.
The NV V8 utilizes a new bridle schematic that includes a V load transfer connection. This connection eliminates canopy distortion and creates a more stable bridge of bridle connection points supporting the LE. The NV still retains its legendary stability, its easy to predict on/off feel and bombproof construction, while holding the position as one of the most versatile cross condition and riding style kites on the market. From pro freestyler, to wave seeker, or the weekend warrior, the NV will perform beyond expectations.
NV SIZES 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10.5 / 12 / 13.5 / 15 METER
Designed to feel like a seamless extension of your board and body, the Wow flies fast across the wind window, pulls only when you want it to, and drifts like a nimble cloud. Offering silky smooth sheet and go power delivery, exceptional maneuverability, and instant response, the Wow gives you the precision and freedom needed to position yourself right where you want to be — on each and every unique wave — for the ultimate, connected, surflike feel. In other words, the Wow lets you focus on the wave, rather than on the kite.
The Wow is not just a surf oriented kite though. It’s stacked with freeriding traits, including stellar lift for big boost and long glide, pivotal looping for air transitions and gentle downloop landings, a small LE for banger upwind performance, and ultra responsiveness for fluid, carving turns. Additionally, all of these characteristics, coupled with the Wow’s graceful drift, make it a powerful choice for an enhanced and simplified foil boarding experience.
WOW SIZES 5-6-7-8-9-10-12-14
SOLO V3 Refined and evolved encompass the versatility of the Solo V3. A new leading edge to trailing edge canopy profile highlights the fine tuned changes in the Solo V3 that brings maturity to the kite. This profile design improvement reduces flutter in the critical areas of the wingtip, increases stability in gusty wind conditions and creates an instant, engaged, power delivery upon sheeting in and smooth controlled de-power when sheeting out. The single strut platform, mid range aspect ratio, and progressive leading edge arc moves the flying position slightly forward in the wind window offering superior low end power making the kite a natural choice for lighter wind specialists and dynamic freeriding hydrofoil riders. The light weight advantage of the single strut platform allows the Solo V3 to handle messy and difficult wind conditions with ease – offering exceptional drift in the lulls and extreme controllable depower in heavy gusts. A fresh approach to bridle configuration has created rapid turn initiation and aided in providing more wingtip pressure to lighting fast off the water re-launching. The ultimate control of the Solo V3 culminates into a kite that traverses all freeriding disciplines and wind chasing travelers.
SOLO V3 LIGHT WIND Riding in light wind presents enough challenges as is. We believe that equipment should not add another dynamic of difficulty to this condition equation. The Solo lead the charge in light wind performance with its introduction 3 years ago. The Solo’s minimal build, single strut platform is unmatched for keeping the kite aloft in light and lulled wind. Don’t hold your progression and tricks back with the fear of crashing! The same benefits of decreased weight for keeping the Solo V3 in the sky translates to ease of re-launch in the slightest of breeze. Additional weight savings components include reduction of heavy Dacron material and low profile bridle lines that reduce drag and weight creating a more forward flying position allow ease of upwind angles. If you are the type of rider that would rather be on the water than sitting on the beach, the Solo V3 is your answer to more days riding your kiteboard rather than riding your beach chair.
SOLO V3 SIZES 3.5 – 5 – 7 – 9 – 12 – 15.5 – 17.5
Sizes 4.5 – 6.5 – 9 -12 -15.5 – 17.5 (NEW)
The design team started by working intensively on numerous Strut-less kite designs which took several months of testing and countless prototypes.
It’s the 6-year anniversary for the Envy officially thrusting the kite to a legacy status! The Envy is the anchor of the LF kite line highlighted by versatility and ease of use from the beginner to the pro rider.
Born from our mission to engineer a top-performing wave-riding kite that also excels at all-around freeriding, LF is pleased to introduce the WOW. Bringing our wildest dreams to life, we poured our passionate hearts and minds into this kite’s extensive development.
Sizes 5 / 7 / 9 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 15 METER
Designed with input from future World Champion Christophe Tack, the HiFi-X2 is the kite of choice for the planet’s most demanding freestyle and competitive riders.
