Best Kiteboarding Kahoona V2 2010
The newly improved Kahoona V2 2010 blends exceptional performance and handling with advanced safety features that make it the perfect kite for advancing your riding level, regardless of your prefer riding style.
Experienced freestyle riders who love the Kahoona's astonishing hangtime and great low end power will be blown away by the improved high wind ability and enhanced stability. Revisions to the wingtip design and canopy geometry along with the introduction of a new 5.5m size help make it the perfect freestyle kite.
In the waves, responsive unhooked handling, great downwind drift, and auto-relaunch all combine to make the Kahoona the most evolved big-wave surf kite weve ever made. It's the perfect partner to our new Spacekraft and Shortstick surfboards.
For improvers, the Kahoona provides a supremely stable platform for progression, helping any rider make the most of their water time. Revised 2010 design and construction with flat-pack LE seams, hidden bridle patches, 3D Kevlar airframe, and Surf-tough construction make the new Kahoona the best all round Delta kite available.
The Kahoona will help you progress faster than you thought was possible with its unbelievable boost, hangtime, stability, auto-relaunch and handling characteristics. It comes loaded with performance and ease-of-use features that are out of this world - at a surprisingly down to earth price.
The Delta canopy design of the Kahoona allows for a unique combination of exceptional low end power, high depower and maximum stability. The Kahoona blends favorable traits from both C-kites and SLE kites to provide an exceptional riding experience for kitesurfers of all skill levels.
The leading edge shape and highly swept back wingtips of the Kahoona allowed the R&D team to remove the centre strut from the airframe: with one less strut in the air the Kahoona is able to turn faster, with less drag and fly in less wind than would be possible with a 5 strut layout.
Mini VP2 Bridle:
A short leading edge bridle provides exceptional shape support and effective distribution of canopy loads across the entire kite: the Kahoona has stability that will encourage you to push your limits. VP2's innovative pivoting design provides maximum depower from minimum bar travel making kite control simpler than ever.
3D KEVLAR AIRFRAME:
Kevlar reinforced airframe construction for maximum precision, durability and minimum weight.All leading edge and strut joints on your kite are laser cut, 3D shaped and Kevlar tape reinforced.
Sure it takes a little longer and costs a little more to build kites this way, but there is no better way to connect the leading edge to the struts.
HIDDEN BRIDLE PATCH:
By placing the LE attachment points on the inside of the kite rather than on the exposed outside of the leading edge we've been able to reduce the potential for snagging seam edges and fraying the LE Dacron. For snowkiting and All-terrain riding it makes the 2010 kites the obvious choice.
FLAT-PACK LE BARREL SEAMS:
The new Flat Pack LE barrel seams contribute to the strongest LE construction we've ever made. Removing the overlap between segments has created a stronger and lighter LE construction with enhanced stiffness and torsion load handling for even greater responsiveness and durability.
CANOPY FRAMING TECHNOLOGY:
Crashing your kite is a fact of life. That's why the perimeter of each canopy segment in every kite we make is supported with a unique reinforcement zone: isolating the canopy from impact and crash loads.
For 2010, CFT now uses an even stronger mark cloth reinforcement directly between the struts and the canopy, further enhancing the strength of your kite without adding unnecessary weight.CFT is a unique approach to the tasks of distributing shock loads across the canopy of your kite and you'll only find it on Best kites.
Enhanced leading edge protection for all conditions and all-terrain riding. Kevlar reinforced, abrasion-resistant leading edge elbow patches provide greater resistance against handling and launch/land damage. All-terrain use and snow kiting has never looked so attractive.
The tip-to-tip leading edge seam on all of our kites is triple stitched with a full length webbing tape closure on the outside. The inside is fully taped with a full length mark cloth strip for maximum strength with all internal seams being smooth-taped to protect the bladders from any ridges of stitching. The Load Flex seam design provides additional support to the leading edge helping to provide maximum strength and stability to your kite; it is one of the reasons why Best kites are famed for their legendary flying stability
CFT REINFORCED TRAILING EDGE:
All of our 2010 kites benefit from our exclusive CFT reinforced trailing edge. Adding CFT to the leach line helps provide razor-sharp turning response and unmatched durability. CFT helps reduce the damage incurred by leaving kites flapping in the wind.
Surf Tough describes how we build in the absolute highest quality with every kite that we make. There are no shortcuts to great performance and lasting durability. We take pride in each and every kite that we make and that's why you will find Surf Tough features on every one of our inflatable kites.
