Features and Benefits...
Delta Hybrid Design: Blends the advantages of the delta with the proven Liquid Force SLE design.
3 Strut Ultra Light Structure: The ultra light structure is 20% lighter than and average SLE kite, giving a fun, light feel. No stalling, better drifting, and superior stability while also being quicker to inflate and deflate.
Ultra Stable Bridal Technology (USB 2.0): Provides simple and smooth depower, effortless and instant relaunch and unmatched reliability for less swimming and more riding!
Diamond Wingtip Design: Provides the huge depower of curved wingtips with the immediate response and turning input of wide square wingtips. The unique shape of the Liquid Force Diamond Wingtip also keeps the bridle tangle free.
Static Wingtip Pulley: provides instantaneous response when initiating turns without changing the profile of the kite. This design also equalizes the front to back line tension so that the kite responds as well when depowered or sheeted out as when fully powered.
Nuke Proof Construction: Consists of super reinforced seam construction. Each segment is glued and double stitched.
Union Single Point Inflation System: allows the entire kite to be inflated from one nozzle. New for 2010 a one way inflation valve allows for even easier inflation without having to pinch the valve to close.
Liquid Force CPR Control Bar System...
For 2010 Liquid Force introduces a brand new kite control system designed around the revolutionary Centre Line Push Release safety system - the CPR. The CPR system allows instant and effortless safety release of the kite with either hand from the front or back of the bar, to either the 100% depower flag out line or the 90& depower main leash option. While the primary focus for the new CPR system is safety, the entire bar has been redesigned and improved.
100% Depower Flag Line: The Liquid Force CPR Control System has a 100% depower flag line leash attachment option. When hooked to the flag line and the bar or CPR are released, the kite will completely depower with the riders leash attached to the flag line. This will leave them connected to only one front line, completely depowering the kite.
90% Depower Option: To utilize the 90% depower leash attachment setting, attach your leash to the end of the mainline. This set-up will allow the rider to safely and repeatedly depower and disable their kite while still allowing the rider to relaunch and ride again very quickly.
Below the bar depower cleat: The power adjustment mainline runs through a 3d Moulded cleat, moulded into the CPR Chicken Loop. This allows effortless adjustment of the mainline and an extreme amount of de-power, always within reach below the bar.
Centre Line Push Release: The CPR Release is designed for ultimate safety and simplicity, allowing a rider to release the kite with either hand, from the front or back of the bar, always the same, either side, and at any time!
Non Mechanical 100% Moulded QR Design: The Liquid Force CPR is unique in that it has NO MECHANICAL or METAL Parts. Each of the quick release parts are moulded plastic and will not rust, seize or corrode and will always function properly in sand, salt, heat or snow.
Quick Click CPR Release Reset: The CPR Release is designed to be just as easy and reliable to reset as to release, even from the water. The CPR resets simply by snapping the chicken loop onto the mainline and then pulling the red release piece down until it clicks. Done!
Colour Coded 3d Moulded Eva Grip: More comfortable than ever with bold colour coded grip. This bar grip is very easy to see the right/left sides of the bar while flying and even when getting tumbled underwater. You always know which end of the bar to grab.
Auto Indexed Chicken Loop: This allows a stiff and constant alignment of the chicken loop to the bar when unhooking/hooking back in. The chicken loop does not flop around and is always aligned correctly with the bar. No need to look to unhook or re-hook!
