The Summit is an all out performance snowkite for dedicated snowkite riders. The Summit will fill the legacy of the well loved Manta.
The Summit is here; The Summit is for riders with experience and who are looking for a kite to explore the limits of what we think is possible. The high aspect design, clean sail, de-power range and handling will allow the adventurous to push the boundaries of the sport even further. The Summit has so much potential due to its amazing power generation in light winds but also its de-power in strong winds. Combine that with fast direct handling and you have the ultimate combination for progressive riders.
The design of this kite has been maximized to deliver as much all round performance as possible. Each aspect has been calculated using the latest development techniques to produce a kite that pushes the limit of performance design. With our new software and our years of experience we have put together a unique combination of aspect ratio, cell width, profile and sail tension. We have incorporated technology from our class leading paraglider designs to dramatically improve stability.
The total flag out option is extremely useful when landing the kite at the top of a mountain or in extreme conditions. It allows you to completely kill the power to pack up safely. We still recommend that you land the Summit using the webbing brake handle to cleanly stall the kite if conditions permit i.e. when taking a break or finished for the day.
The Summit is constructed from top quality materials and features a double pulley speed-system, utilising the latest high spec Ronstan Orbit Block Series 20 pulleys. Unique blow-out-valves on the under surface allow the internal volume of air to be released when the kite is crashed into the ground.
