AGILE | STABLE | ACCESSIBLE FOIL KITE
The new Nova is available now with 27/32 grams ultra light Porcher Canopy, creating the ultimate wing that flies from 5 knots onwards. By using only superior lightweight materials, the weight dropped with 25%, creating better float, an even more direct feel, better relaunch and smaller packing.
This one of a kind foil was designed to unite all the benefits of LEIs, like accessibility, ease of use and stability, with all the advantages of foils: better upwind, downwind, low wind performance and float.
When designing the Nova we had one goal in mind, to build a foil dedicated to speed up the learning curve of hydro-foiling and that provides the best freeride feeling a foil can offer. It offers a stable and reliable riding experience which allows you to focus on your board technique rather than on controlling your kite. If you want to spend more time on the water but fear the foil, this is the kite for you.
COMFORTABLE BAR PRESSURE, LOW SIDEWAYS PULL
To get up on a hydrofoil it is important that the kite doesn’t generate too much sideways pull. Low sideways pull allows you to focus on holding your balance rather than dealing with the power of the kite.
HIGHLY STABLE, RIGID WING
The Nova’s high cell count and internal construction makes for a firm wing that doesn’t deform or has its tips fold in, this makes the kite highly reliable, and the bridle is tuned to offer maximum stability. The NOVA delivers much more power than an average LEI, making you able to use a small size in low wind.
FOIL SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE, EASE OF A LEI
Even though foil kites offer many advantages like low wind performance or upwind ability, many LEI riders consider foilkites to be difficult to use. This is why the Nova is special.
FILLS FAST, RETAINS INTERNAL PRESSURE.
The Nova’s 4 inlets have been placed in such a way that air gets in easily and the internal structure allows this air to move freely inside the kite to speed up inflation. At the same time, the valves inside the wing prevent air from getting out.
Riding a hydrofoil gives you the freedom to explore kiting in a different and magical way; ride waves, make turns, jump around or just cruise. There are no limits. Combine this with the ultra-wide wind range and stability of a foil kite and you’re golden.
We believe every kiteboarder should be able to experience the magic of riding a hydrofoil. To make foiling accessible even to the most dedicated LEI riders, we have created a kite that allows you to focus on getting up on your board without having to deal with your kite. The kite’s incredibly stability allows you handle your foil board without having to worry about your kite.
Kiting with a foil gives kiteboarding a whole different perspective. With an LEI, there is only a stop and go. With a foil there is everything in between. It’s a Ferrari that drives faster if you shift it well. You learn something new but if you temper it, you will find new possibilities.
