Function :

New release of our foil kite dedicated to performance.

Introduction :

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.

The Strutless V3 kites are built with the highest quality materials on the market : Teijin triple Rip-stop(T9669), DPL175LL skeleton, TPU 0,1mm bladders.

To comply with the new navigation regulations, we have integrated a laminated label on the intrados, close to one tip, to put the owner’s personal information on it: last name, first name, phone and address.

Design :

  • Sober, light and elegant.
  • GONG KITE logos + sizing on tips.
  • Strutless logo on the opposite tips.

Shape

  • Strutless hybrid shape for maximum weight loss.
  • High aspect ratio for a maximum gliding and high performances for upwind and speed.
  • Skeleton DP175LL : leading edge and tips are manufactured with this fantastic tissue, rigid and solid, that act as a real skeleton for the Kite. High Strung, stability, durability.
  • Segmented Leading Edge (22 segments), thin sections in the middle for maximum flow and thicker sections on the tips for better wind hold and maneuverability. A super compromise between power, relaunch, maneuverability while offering excellant rigidity.
  • Thin profile for maximizing the flow. This profile is optimized by the numerous amount of segments that refine the 3D shape.
  • Recoiled hollow that excelerates kite speed :High control of the speed, wind and great upwind performances.
  • Ability to de-power completely. In the middle of the window you can instantly kill the power by releasing. At the zentih the kite auto-stabalizes due to the flap created on the Draft zone.
  • Rounded and flowing tips facilitating the tilting of the kite during relaunch and while handling.

Stock Dimensions

  • Large diameter air valve (screw) and system one pump express : super easy to inflate/deflate, lightning fast!!
  • Bridles, simple, 1 inox ring sliding on a Spectra Bridle : direct handlebar feeling.
  • 3 Rear Ear Anchor Points : Gives you choice to augment the Kites maneuverability and it’s easy feeling on the Bar, or you may calm down the Kite and augment its feeling on the Bar.
  • 2 adjusting knots (for power) on leading bridles.
  • Straps sown into leading extremities to avoid hooking or entanglement.
  • Laminated label on the intrados, close to one tip, to write: last name, first name, phone and address.
  • Recommended bar : GONG KITE BAR 49 cm for the 6sqm to the 12sqm and GONG KITE BAR 69 cm for the 15 sqm and 17sqm (not included with product, sold seperately, thank you).

Instructions

Innovation is at the core of our Boards

GONG Kite Technology :

The GONG Strutless kite is manufactured in one of the two biggest kite factories in the world using the highest quality standards.
Fabricated with the greastest care. The panels are cut using CNC and entirely assembled and sown by hand by the best artisans in the kite industry.
The materials used are by far the most noble. We demand are look for performance but also endurance and longevity and also materials that have proven themselves.

  • Bridles in Dyneema and Spectra, pulleys from Ronstan.
  • High quality triple rip-stop, Teijin T9669 (high stiffness, long lasting performances).
  • Leading edge and latte in Dacron Dimension Polyan DP175LL (the most solid on the market, and most expensive).
  • Reinforcement patches in PVC 1680D along the tips.
  • Bladders TPU 0,1mm : un-failing reliability.

A reminder, at the Kites weight – whomever the manufacturer – will vary following 3 main factors :

  • The more reinforced the Kite is with concern to material thickness, the higher the weight will be, but also the higher the resistance to crashes and also the longevity of your Kite.
  • The SPI is waterproofed by a coating process which preserves its performance in use. The thicker the coating, the heavier the fabric becomes, and also the better it ages over time session quantities. For the record, the exposure of your Kite to UV and treated water will gradually destroy this coating.
  • Our Kites are equipped with Bladders that are 100 microns thick, which is among the thickest on the market. We could easily descend to 60 microns but this would substantially diminish the Kites resistance to us : Nosedives, Kitemares, crashes, overinflation, etc…

  1. Paul

    Hi,

    ich habe heute den 12m Strutless V3 bei extrem wenig Wind mit dem Foil ausprobiert.
    Der Schirm hat mich sehr überrascht, er lies sich kinderleicht aus dem Wasser starten, hatte durchgehend einen angenehmen starken Zug und verhielt sich auch in Windlöchern und Böen immer sehr stabil. Die Depower funktioniert auch sehr gut. Alles in allem ein sehr guter Kite für den unteren Windbereich.

    Tipps, bzw Änderungsvorschläge für zukünftige Modelle:
    Die Anknüpfpunkte für die Steuer- und Powerleinen unterschiedlich zu machen (nicht nur Knoten), da dies zu Verwechslungen führen könnte. Zum anderen wird zum aufpumpen ein mitgelieferter Adapter benötigt; Praktischer wäre es das Ventil direkt mit dem Pumpenschlauch zu verbinden, wie bei anderen Marken.

    Hi There,
    I just tried the 12m Strutless V3 in 8 to 10 knots and I have to say that I’m very surprised 😃
    Amazing kite, super stable, ease reverse launch, easy self launch and landing, fast for It’s size (12m)and lots of power!

    I could give it a 5 star rating but I’ve got no other strutless material to compare, that’s why a 4 star.

    For more impressions about the V3 12m. see my vids:
