The 2018 CrazyFly Sculp is easy to use and has a fantastic wind range. The latest version remains a versatile all rounder and whether you're new to kitesurfing, an experienced freeride / freestyle rider, or starting out in waves, this kite will cope with it all. It's still that same fantastic performer, now with a slightly higher aspect ratio making the kite slimmer and faster through the air, The Delta shape offers smooth, stable and predictable performance, generating great lift and boosting your jumps to the max.
As with all their kites, the Sculp is made in CrazyFly's own factory in Europe, which means that improvement options are unlimited and quality can be controlled in every aspect of the kite's design and production. Key improvements for 2018 include the introduction of Triplex ripstop material which has increased durability with the triple coating ensuring extra protection against sand, salt and UV rays.
As well as Triplex riptstop, high performance fabrics include Dacron (for rigidity), Marcloth (for strength), ArpTex (for abrasion resistance), all precisely put together with attention to every small detail. The quality of additional materials like PU bladders, polyester abrasion resistant threads and Dyneema® bridle lines is second to none.
Minimising the number of panels (almost 50% on all CrazyFly kites), makes the whole structure stronger. There is a Swept Leading Edge Seam towards the wingtips, allowing for greater aerodynamic efficiency and a kite that is more precise to control. The new Linked Bridle 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.
This really is the 'DO IT ALL' kite.
