New release of our foil kite dedicated to performance.
The Strutless V3 is the latest version of our strutless inflatable kite. L’Ours has developed this Kite in colaboration with one of the best Kite designers in the world with the goal of making a super light kite with amazing flying qualities and an uncomparable feeling.
Conceived and designed on Surfplan (the best 3D conceptual software in the Kite world as used by all major Brands) the strutless is a very fast kite. It has a surprising wide range of use in low wind where its significant stability and gliding allow you to fly without any struggle.
They are more elongated, with flowing tips, the profil is hollower giving you a kite that gains 99% in comparison to criteria with its previous version, the V2.
The strutless V3 goes faster, more upwind and always combine with an incredible confort and a very high level of liveliness, lightness and dynamism while kiting.
It’s also softer and easier. It stays by itself in the air without any disturbing shocks for the kitesurfer. It’s reassuring and relaxing, therefore, we can use quite a big kite and go way faster.
Because it is more powerful and manoeuvrable, air tacks are a piece of cake.
The Strutless offers, for example, the ability to ease the kite, immediately and efficiently, in full window without having to get it out of the window. It’s a total comfort while navigating that classic struted kite can’t offer. Ideal for foiling.
A huge work has been done on the bridles with two specifics: an exceptionnal manoeuvrability even in the lightest conditions, and a flowing and progressing depower to highly enhance the stability.
If the more rounded and flowing tips ease the reverse of the kite landed on the water on its tip, the relaunching in reverse is a piece of cake and it simplifies certain situations. The Strutless V3 behaves like a kite that wants to fly forward AND backwards by pulling more or less the backlines. We can relaunch it faster with less wind. A must have for foiling.
The integration of a penetration sleeve to middle of the spinnaker to insert a fiberglass strut, which is in the kite bag, has several advantages:
- Maintaining high speed profil. The leading edge does’nt go backward in the hollow: Maximum stability therefore, crazy performances.
- Very thin strut which maintains the typical depower and flap of the Strutless, and to roll it up in the kite bag.
- This set up is very efficient for foiling, freeride sessions with a directionnal board while keeping the main characteristics of these kites, a shape that is very fast and high performance.
The 40% loss of volume gained over struted kites is a real advantage when traveling, but that is not the main arguement, the real qualities are in the air!
Strutless V3 kites are designed to be easy to use and without hassles : 30sec inflation, fast mounting, adjustments reduced to absolute minimum, easy launching.
