We like to think our designs are versatile; the Catalyst in my mind is the choice for all-round riding because of its versatility and performance. It can take a beginner safely from the first steps right through to ripping it up in all aspects of the sport. At the same time it can satisfy and impress seasoned riders of all levels.
I personally choose to ride the Catalyst because I know I can depend on it to deliver the performance I want and need to ride to the level I desire. It truly is a kite that can do it all no matter what riding I am doing.
I love to ride waves, the Catalyst is easy to ride even in those critical moments because the kite can float in the air as you cruise down the line or smash the lip. It allows you to concentrate on the wave and not have to worry about perfect kite placement to keep it flying.
When the wind picks up boosting big is always fun and exciting, the Catalyst gets me up there and brings me down softly which is great for my beaten and broken body! It can even handle unhooked riding if that is your thing!
However if it is just cruising with my friends then no matter how flat or choppy the water, I know it’s going to be a pleasure to ride because of it’s smooth forgiving nature and it’s performance both up and down wind.
It really is the bomb, it’s got smooth progressive handing, awesome de-power characteristics and has simple effective safety systems.
In short if you want a kite that delivers in all categories then the Catalyst is as much for you as it is for me.
