Its unsurpassed flight characteristics ensure hours upon hours of exhilarating fun. The Hornet was designed to be as stable as possible without affecting the awesome flight characteristics the Hornet is renowned for. Besides being the ultimate 4-line foil for static use, the Hornet will also prove its worth if you’d like to get going in a buggy or on a board, where having a stable kite helps you get going with confidence.
Easy going performance
All these efforts have resulted in the most user friendly powerkite on the market today. Smooth turning, snappy controls, superb stability and equal pull throughout the wind window all add to the great experience the Hornet will deliver for endless sessions to come.
If you fly the Hornet by only pulling left or right on the handles, it has a smooth turning radius with a continuous power delivery. If you steer the kite by adding tension to the brake lines, the Hornets turning radius becomes much tighter. By using 4-line controls you can be much more precise in positioning the kite, to get maximum performance out of it.
Even in light winds, flying the Hornet is quite an exercise for your arms, legs and upper torso, in higher winds it will prove to be a very potent engine that will easily get you going in all forms of land based traction kite sports. Its refined canopy and minimized bridle make for a smooth & dependable kite that handles well. Even in gusty conditions, there are no sudden power build-ups when flying the Hornet through the wind window, making the kite very reliable and predictable.
