The Frenzy 2014 is a high performance freestyle kite aimed at intermediate to advanced snowkiters who are looking for performance and versatility.
The Frenzy has massive pop, tight turn speed and crisp responsive handling. If you are into fast mountain riding, carving massive tracks in the powder or boosting huge handle passes from snowy wind lips then this is the kite for you.
For the design of the Frenzy 2014 we started with a clean sheet of paper and using feedback from our team of pro riders we developed an outstanding kite. Our riders wanted a do it all kite with performance, stability and safety for the ultimate Freeride and Freestyle experience. After a full winter of prototyping and development we have come up with a new planform, higher arc, new line layout and performance profile. The 2014 design has fulfilled this requirement and will take the potential of the sport to new levels.
The total flag out option is extremely useful when landing the kite in extreme conditions. It allows you to completely kill the power to pack up safely. We still recommend that you land the kite 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 Frenzy name is a classic, known and loved by many snowkiters. It has been the benchmark of snowkite design since it was first released to the public in winter of 2002/3 and helped kick start the amazing sport as we know it now. This year we are very proud of the design as we know that this is the best yet.
The 2014 Frenzy is also available in an ULTRALIGHT version, it is the same design as the Frenzy but produced with high quality ultra light material to reduce it’s weight and packing volume to a minimum. It is made with the same lightweight materials as our worlds lightest Paraglider.
The difference in weight also greatly improves the flying characteristics of the kite. It will launch in lighter winds, it turns a little quicker and stays in the air longer in gusty conditions. The ULTRALIGHT version of the Frenzy is the kite of choice for those who want to explore, it might be mountains you have to skin up before you can kite the ridges or a massive vast wilderness you attempt to cross with a sledge and want to have as little weight as possible for those days you have to walk. The Frenzy ULTRALIGHT comes in one color only with a standard bar and lines but a lighter material rucksack to further reduce weight.
As it is about 25% lighter than our standard kites it is also less resistant to harsh abuse. It needs a well experienced pilot who knows how to keep the kite up in the air and how to handle it gently on the ground.
The ULTRALIGHT kites will be produced on request only so please order early to plan for production and delivery time. Contact your local dealer/distributor and ask about the ULTRALIGHT.
