2013 Blade Trigger - 5th Generation
Freeride - Freestyle - Waveride
Designed to excel riders who are progessive, versatile and dynamic.
Having inspired kite riders to push the boundaries since 2009, the 5th generation Trigger is even more in your face and thrilling than its predecessor. Maintaining its reputation of ultra-quick turning speed and powerful delivery gives the edge to riders who don’t fear going all out on the water. Don’t expect a park and ride kite. The Trigger would be insulted to be used in such a way. The high performance characteristics let you position this kite exactly when and where you want it.
“All-around” is too many times mistaken for “good for everyone”.
If you are looking for an all-around kite, you likely want to do a little bit of everything and need a kite with well-balanced characteristics. But riders have different personalities, different mindsets out on the water, and that means a different definition of their ideal all-around kite.
First select which model of kite you would like. A quick trip to our kites page will give you more info on the models available. But both the kites here are suited to learning and quick progression but they still pack a shed load of performance for once you are at intermediate or even pro level.
Smaller kites turn faster, have a bigger wind range but have less pull. They are generally used for lighter riders and in stronger winds. Bigger kites are slower but give more float when jumping and are used by bigger riders and in lighter winds. Many kitesurfers will have 2 or 3 kites in their quiver to cover all winds strengths. For starting out it is easiest to learn in winds from 14-20Knots. Here is a guide showing the size of kite a beginner will get the most benefit from.
Under 55kg - 7m 65 - 79 KG - 10m 100kg and up - 14m
When Choosing a board
Bigger boards are generally better in light winds and for heavier riders and they are also easier to learn on. But go too big and its likely your will be wanting to change it after just a few months. Smaller boards are easier to manouvre and better in stronger winds. Once you are over the hurdle of having your first few runs dialed in they are better for progressing. We would recommend the 138cm Blade Sanchez to heavier riders and 134cm Blade Sanchez for everyone else. The 130cm would be good for a very light rider or a child. All are superb starter and intermediate boards, but many pro riders are also using them so they wont hold you back.
