A Pure, Fast Flying, Quick-Turning Snow Kite
The Leopard is built for riders who need power and versatility to constantly push their riding to new heights. It has been specifically designed to offer the purest snowkiting experience in an open cell depower foilkite. To ensure you get the best out of every session the Leopard has been designed to be a fast flying, quick turning powerhouse with a large usable windrange that delivers its performance in a reliable and controllable way. As safety is paramount in any high performance depower kite we have incorporated a new ‘stop and go’ safety system, which guarantees 100% depower even in tricky conditions and a no hassle re-launch. The system can also be used to safely launch and anchor the kite if you need to take a break.
The V3 Leopard is a Med/High AR, open cell depower foil with a 5th line safety, its lightweight construction makes for a great low end while its stability inspires confidence even in more turbulent situations. The kite’s responsiveness and high flying speed make for an exciting ride every time you go out to play or head out to explore the backcountry. The Leopard is delivered in a technical backpack that’s fitted with options you’d expect on an expedition pack and there’s more than enough room for your thermos bottle and some food.

Recommended Control Bar + Lines
Powerful Upwind Drive
The Leopards medium high Aspect Ratio design makes it a very fast kite down the line but also offers an insane upwind drive. The kite delivers its power in a smooth and controllable way and feels light as a feather on the bar even when blazing upwind. The Leopards speed and upwind drive lets you cover a lot of ground fast and easy.
Fast Flying + Agile
The specially designed Dyneema® bridle results in a highly responsive and quick turning wing.
100% Depower Safety
The Leopard features a full stop safety to ensure safe landings or safety releases in tricky situations. As the safety line acts like an extra bridle which is connected to the sides of the kite, pushing the safety release makes the kite pull into a compact bundle, immediately eliminating 100% of the kites power.
The Leopard has been designed to be your personal ski lift, its high performance profile is tuned to give you the agility and power to tackle any slope. Next to that it offers plenty of boost and float for some freestyle moves and smooth landings.
Easy Reverse Landing
In contrary to most other depower foils the Leopard is very well behaved when pulling the self landing handle. Where other kites lose their shape and start twisting uncontrollably the Leopard simply powers down and backs down to the ground.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Who Is This Kite Designed For?
The Leopard V3 suitable for all terrains, but we recommend this kite for intermediate to advanced level snow kiters.
2. Do I Need A Control Bar?
The Leopard V3 requires a control bar in order to be piloted safely. A control bar does not come standard with the kite, but you can add one to your order if required. Peter Lynn have designed the Magnet control bar to be used with the Leopard V3. To read more about the Peter Lynn Magnet Control Bar click here.
3. What Difference Does The Size Of The Control Bar Make?
The longer the control bar, the longer the set of lines that will come with them. This design ensures kite lines stay safely positioned whilst maneuvering the kite. Longer lines (>24m) increase the kite’s wind window and generate more power because a longer flight path means the kite accelerates faster. Shorter lines (<24m), increases bar responsiveness, kite agility and turning speed. Beginners or those looking for big air are better suited to a longer bar and lines. Shorter lines are recommended for wave riding, wakestyle and kite looping.
