The Blade Trigger has long been regarded as the ultimate all-round kite. Blade continue to work hard every year to test, listen to feedback, and make incremental improvements in the kite’s design, construction and performance. This has resulted in an amazing kite. As the Trigger enters its eleventh year, those subtle but all-important changes continue and the 2019 Trigger impresses even more.
For 2019, the Trigger continues to feature the super-reliable three-strut design that enhances the responsiveness and turning speed in every kite size. And with an extended sweet spot, the wind range for each size has increased. A Dacron Combo makes the kite light and strong, and moulded leading edge guards, along with insignia tape in the delicate areas, protect the kite from those harsh beaches. Cross-fibre ripstop - a double-weaved fabric - provides the kite with double the strength and durability and an additional layer of coating increases the canopy's resistance to prevent it from wearing out.
The Trigger features an optional wave setting which positions the kite further in the edge of the window, allowing more depower and better drift characteristics – ideal for those that ride a surfboard or foil, or when as a beginner or intermediate you want to be able use that extra level of depower.
For 2019 the inflation system has been upgraded to MAD3. This one-pump valve system has been re-designed with bigger valves to allow air to flow much quicker – benefiting not just inflation but also allowing air to flow out of the struts much more easily when deflating. The valve cap fits much tighter and the valve is now made out of a PU material rather than PVC, which has improved adhesion.
