CrazyFly have completely re-designed the Sculp for 2017 - it's still that same all-round performer, but is now slimmer and faster through the air. The Delta shape gives consistent, smooth power delivery and has a fantastic wind range for all styles of riding.
The Sculp is made in CrazyFly's own factory in Europe, which means that improvement options are unlimited and quality can be controlled in all aspects of the kite's design and production. Improvements for 2017 include the introduction of Double Ripstop as the new canopy material as well as new United Dacron Panel technology on the wingtips which increasing rigidity in the kite. The number of panels on the leading edge has been reduced by almost 50% on all CrazyFly kites, making the whole structure stronger. There is a new Swept Leading Edge Seam towards the wingtips, allowing for greater aerodynamic efficiency and a kite that is more precise to control. The Sculp also gets a new Linked Bridle which is made up of interconnected bridle lines free of pulleys and sliders - so no more pulleys to jam or wear out - fantastic! This Bridle results in a very direct link between rider and kite which improves reaction to rider input.
Overall, the 2017 Sculp is 10% lighter than previous models with more rigidity and great durability. Of course a lighter kite means an improved wind range. Coupled with all the other brand new and innovative features, this is a kite that will truly perform for any kiter in a huge range of conditions.
