THE NEW JUICE IS OUT!

 

Get set to shred in light wind days! The new 2018 Juice has been completely redesigned for a dynamic and exciting ride. Available in two sizes, 15m and 18m, the Juice is a must-have for those living for the lighter days, or the heavier rider looking for some grunt. Big in size, the Juice delivers excellent float through the air, reactive steering and plenty of low-end power. Flexible tips ensure easy-peasy water relaunch, whilst the 3-strut design and light wind construction ensure the canopy is stable when the wind increases, giving the kite a great wind range. If you want to be the first on the water, you need the Juice in your life!

RIDER REVIEW

 

Jeremie Tronet and Manuela Jungo make space in their quivers for the Juice. Why? Because this high performance light wind machine gets them on the water first and keeps them there until the sun sets. From freeridng to freestyle, old-school and foil boarding, read what they have to say about this essential piece of kit.

DESIGNER INTERVIEW

 

Ralf Grösel set out to optimise the Juice to be a performance orientated kite, able to be used in even the lights of wind and on a foil board. For 2018, he took it back to the drawing board, brought his vision to life and has succeeded in creating a specialised light wind kite with zero compromise. Read what he has to say.

TRINITY TX 

 

While the weight of the kite has been kept to a minimum, there's no compromise in durability due to plenty of Dacron reinforcements in all the right places ensuring a robust finish. For 2018, we are taking the material we use in the Canopy of our kites to a whole new level. Introducing the all-new TRINITY TX. Made in collaboration with Tejin, we ensure that premium and state-of-the-art Canopy material is implemented into all of our kites through our innovative coating development. TRINITY TX. Made to stand the test of time.

MAX FLOW

 

Stay cool and be on the water first with the Max Flow valve system. A technical innovation built for speed, rapid inflation and deflation has never been so easy. The maximised tubes have been increased from 6mm to 9mm for effortless pumping with double the airflow!
